Recruiters Stop Preying On Our YOUTH!
Military Out of Our Schools!
College Not Combat!
The Campus Antiwar Network in the Bay Area is calling for antiwar activists to converge on Stonestown Mall Marine Recruitment Center for a feisty protest of military recruiters in our schools, our communities, and our city. Students, teachers, and all antiwar activists are urged to come out for an energetic event! Now is the time for ACTION!
Monday, March 20 will mark the THIRD YEAR of the war in Iraq. With the majority of the country now against the war and the death toll of US soldiers in Iraq over 2,300, we call upon the military to cease and desist its aggressive tactics and not to recruit ONE MORE OF OUR YOUTH to suffer in this illegal and immoral war! The vast majority of San Franciscans say "Troops Out Now!" and many feel that the conflict in Iraq is only made worse by the US presence there.
We will converge on the Marine Recruitment Center Monday at 4:00 PM, joining with high school students in the area, college antiwar groups in the Campus Antiwar Network, and antiwar activists throughout the Bay Area. We will call upon the military not to recruit one more youth to war, and to leave our community! Bring your signs, your noisemakers, and your love for peace!
Campus Antiwar Network is a grassroots collaboration of student antiwar groups throughout the US. For more info please visit http://www.campusantiwar.net.
