When Richard Bunch, a mentally disturbed prisoner, was shot and killed on October 11th, 1968, Presidio inmates began organizing. Three days later, 27 Stockade prisoners broke formation and walked over to a corner of the lawn, where they read a list of grievances about their prison conditions and the larger war effort and sang We Shall Overcome. The prisoners were charged and tried for "mutiny," and several got 14 to 16 years of confinement. Meanwhile, disillusionment about the Vietnam War continued to grow inside and outside of the military.

Both groups joined together and marched; this action was to be known as the March on the Pentagon. 
During 1967 there were numerous anti-war marches across the nation in all major cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, DC.

Tue Oct 30 - Wed Oct 31: Speak at the Pakistani National Defense University conference on The Geopolitics of Knowledge in the 21st Century
National Defense University, Islamabad, Pakistan
Contact Junaid Ahmad
tackle the series of geopolitical and civilizational, cultural, and epistemological ruptures taking place that simply cannot be understood by the conventional wisdom of the hackneyed and out-of-date analytical toolbox of the heyday of the Cold War years of the 20th century. The theories and explanatory models of that time, centering on classical modernization theory and International Relations theory, and so on - seem insufficiently robust, if not downright discredited, in explaining the multiple, cascading crises that afflict humanity today. The attempt of this conference is two-fold; our first inaugural conference at NDU (March 2017) collected a number of principally Muslim intellectuals addressing issues impinging directly on the Islamic world. This conference is more ambitious in the discourse that it would like to generate, and policy prescriptions that could potentially emerge on the global level and their meaning for the well-being of Pakistan, other parts of the global South, and the bulk of humanity that is attempting to forge a counter-hegemony.

The two awards are the outcome of a cooperation between the world-famous ZERO artist Otto Piene and the ethecon foundation. At the same time the awards are also an expression of the cooperation between the great art photographer atharina Mayer that exists since 2010.
