these are all flyers I’ve seen around campus, publicizing the LRDP Resistance organization, “an ad-hoc coalition of concerned individuals on and off the UCSC campus.”
you should notice that these flyers are at least a few cuts above standard handwritten-photocopied-stapled protest flyers. their website, too, is impressive. well-designed, and with very well-written content, as well as ample background information and links. they state that, “despite appearances,” they have no web-designer, which I find somewhat curious.
Not to be cynical, but I really don’t think your average student protesters are capable of this. they do acknowledge that there are “individuals … off the UCSC campus” involved in the organization, but given that the protest was almost entirely comprised of students, and that one line is the only mention of non-student involvement, I’m pretty curious as to who exactly the LRDP Resistance is.
I don’t really think there’s some big ‘ol conspiracy, and that it will turn out to be bin laden supporting government destabilization through student activists such as lrdp resistance, but it’s just a question I had.
