This Day in Daily History

Activist calls for stocks of suicide pills in face of
war

Nov. 10, 1984 — At a press conference sponsored by
Students Against Nuclear Suicide, Brown University activist Jason
Salzman told a group of University students that they should push
for University Health Services to stock suicide pills.

While admitting that the idea of stocking suicide pills was
unconventional, Salzman said, “At least we’ve gotten
people to think about (nuclear war.)”

Salzman had previously led a successful campaign to pass a
student referendum demanding that Brown University stock the pills,
though officials at the school declined to heed the nonbinding
vote.

SANS, in an effort to raise awareness of the threat of nuclear
war, campaigned for a similar referendum on the Michgan Student
Assembly ballot.
