The year 2012 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Port Huron Statement, published by Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). As part of the observation of this anniversary, MDS is embarking upon a collective writing project. We plan to bring together a wide range of movement perspectives to address both a retrospective analysis of the PHS and a prospective analysis of the question: What would a manifesto for our times entail?

Our movement focus is a global one, not merely a national one. Your suggestions about other groups around the world possibly interested in this project would be most welcomed.

We would like to extend an invitation to any organization or individual to join in this project, in any way, small or large, that you deem fitting. Please get back to us with your questions and ideas.

Solidarity,
MDS Organizing Committee
