On Dec 6, the Supreme Court will decide the constitutionality of the Solomon Amendment, which denies federal funding for schools that don't allow military recruitment on campus in the historical case of FAIR v Rumsfeld. Students and activists in the Campus Antiwar Network and many others will RALLY AND MARCH in solidarity with the counter-recruitment activists in the Supreme Court Case.
WE WILL RALLY at Justin Herman Plaza (near Ferry Building at Market St & Embarcadero) at 4:00 PM. Speakers will include Aimee Allison of Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors and the Prop I Committee, a College Not Combat representative, a representative from the Campus Antiwar Network, and others. Music provided by local artists & drummers.
WE WILL MARCH to Davis Street Recruitment Station, 670 Davis Street, to voice our outrage. Creative acts of solidarity are encouraged and welcome.
Sixty percent San Francisco voters supported Prop I to oppose military recruitment in schools and to support scholarships to counteract the economic draft of low-income students, overwhelmingly of color, who are used as cannon fodder for an unjust war.
The Campus Antiwar Network opposes the withholding of federal funds as retaliation against schools, their students, and others who demand REAL CAREER OPPORTUNITIES and EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES.
No to the Solomon Amendment!
College Not Combat!
Bring the Troops Home Now!
