Commemoration of March 4, 1969:
Scientists Strike For Peace


Fifty years ago, on March 4, 1969, most research and teaching at MIT came to a halt, as students, faculty, and staff at MIT held a “Scientists Strike for Peace.” The strike protested the continuing U.S. war against the Vietnamese people, and university complicity in those policies.

These events will be commemorated this March 4th, with the showing of excerpts from the film “November Actions: Defiance at MIT, 1969." The film will be followed by a panel discussion addressing ethics of artificial intelligence, MIT-Saudi relations, and impacts of MIT on local housing and life. The event will be held at 4:00 pm in the Bartos Theatre, Building E15, 20 Ames Street.
