On Feb 12, 2 sides faced off in Berkeley. On the one side were anti-war and progressive people supporting the city council's resolution last week saying that marine recruiters are unwelcome in Berkeley. On the other side were pro-Iraq war, pro-marine reactionaries mobilized by talk radio etc. Despite all the media reports that hordes od pro-war people would be decending on Berkeley the anti-marine recruiter protesters outnumbered the reactionaries most of the day. Hundreds of Berkeley High students Berkeley High students joined the protest.

Youth who normally skate in the area where the pro-Marine demonstrators were took up orange bandannas and challenged the reactionaries. The reactionaries couldn't contain their racist, condescending attitudes which further pissed off these youth.
