Add comment on:Pro-War Crowd Poses For National Media Next To Berkeley High
Slightly over a hundreds pro-war activists came to Berkeley from all around the US to stand next to Berkeley High waving flags. A similar sized crowd of anti-war protesters were camped across the street in front of the Berkeley City Council building. While the protest was small it was front page news around the country as CNN accused Berkeley of treason (see http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/02/12/berkeley.marines/ ) for a City Council resolution opposing military recruitment near the Berkeley high school. While the corporate media tried to whip up pro-war sentiment and provoke a confrontation, the day was largely peaceful except for a brief scuffle when the police attacked several high school students.
