Ward Churchill v. University of Colorado
July 31, 2007
In a time when our basic civil and human rights are endangered it is
critical to resist those who would have us believe that the current
state of affairs is inevitable. We cannot allow ourselves to be silenced.
We do not believe the University of Colorado fired Ward Churchill
because of so-called "research misconduct." The attack on Ward
Churchill is part of a larger effort to silence criticism of
government policies and to discredit alternative, particularly
Indigenous, histories and perspectives; an attack spearheaded by
neoconservative groups like Lynne Cheney's American Council of
Trustees and Alumni (ACTA). For more on CU President Hank Brown's
ties to ACTA, see
There are many fronts in the struggle to preserve access to truth and
the freedom to think and speak critically. In addition to whatever
avenues you are already pursuing to redress injustice, we urge you to
support Ward Churchill's lawsuit against the University of Colorado.
