Military Recruiters Evicted From UCSC Job Fair, Again!
On April 11th, 2006, about 200 students marched and rallied to get the military out of UC Santa Cruz. Students rallied outside the McHenry Library before marching to the Job Fair held at College 8. This is the third time in a row that the military has been confronted by large student demonstrations while trying to recruit at UCSC Job Fairs.

Students made a pathway which military recruiters said they needed so they could leave the Job Fair. But this was a lie, like most statements made by the military. They did not need a pathway and instead left the Job Fair by walking alongside the building.
