Freedom Archives: Weather Underground Organization (WUO)
"The Weather Underground Organization (WUO) was a clandestine, militant anti-racist organization that aimed to overthrow US imperialism. It was formed in 1969 by members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) following internal ideological struggle within SDS. Aligning itself with the anti-war movement and supporting Third World liberation struggles, the WUO staged a campaign of numerous bombings and other direct actions from the late 196s to mid-1970s, in solidarity with liberation struggles in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and in the United States. The organization published numerous pamphlets, communiques, and periodicals and a book Prairie Fire: the Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism. The organization disbanded in 1976. In addition to the book, the collection includes monographs from the WUO, communiques, and all issues of the periodical Osawatomie."
