Quote from document: "It is not a matter of wishing success to the victim of aggression, but of sharing his fate; one must accompany him to his death or to victory. --Che Guevara"
Background information: "In March 1970, the UW Black Student Union, joined by the Seattle Liberation Front, the Weathermen and hundreds of unaffiliated students, protested the [UW's] ongoing athletic relationship with Brigham Young University. Claiming that the Mormon Church 'ran' BYU and that the Church advocated white supremacy, BSU called on the university to sever a relationship that sanctioned those policies."
