Students Campaign for Prop N
High school students organize rally against the war
Two hundred high school students stayed after school on Oct. 20th for a press conference and teach-in against the war and for SF proposition N organized by fellow students at Lowell High. Prop N asks: "Shall it be City policy to urge the United States government to withdraw all troops from Iraq and bring all military personnel in Iraq back to the United States?"

Towards the end of the rally, a quiet young man in a black trench coat stepped up to the stage to explain that he is a soldier in the Army, that he just got back from Iraq a few weeks ago, and he didn’t have any speech to make. However, he wanted people to understand that people here don’t really know how bad it is Iraq—both for the US troops and Iraqis. He described endless house-to-house raids, kicking in doors, and terrifying the people. “Many people in my unit had no problems with what we were doing, but I could see we were making more enemies every day.” More including Photos
