Location Details:
Marine Recruiting Station
64 Shattuck Square, Berkeley
(just south of University Ave on Shattuck Ave where Shattuck runs one way north)

Help SHUT DOWN the new Marine military recruiting station in Berkeley – Join Grandmothers for Peace, CodePINK, and others every Tuesday in November from 1:30-3:30p.m. as we stand in front of the Marine Recruiting Station.

Hand out flyers, get petitions signed, talk with those in danger of being recruited; go inside and talk with those doing the recruiting.

Be a presence for peace and against the recruitment of our youth!

This is part of our ”How Berkeley Can U BE” in front of the Marine Recruiting Station

Actions continue (when YOU are there!) every week day 7:30a.m. until 5:00p.m. in front of the horrific recruiting station as the people of Berkeley hold on-going classes, breastfeeding playgroup for peace, circus acts, music and poetry, art installations. Hold your meetings, parties, book readings - anything that says "THIS is what we want in Berkeley: NOT the military recruitment of our youth"

Do not hesitate - there is a bag of flyers, petitions, banners, signs waiting for you inside the People's Cafe across the street from the station. Bring a friend or two, go by yourself. Just BE there! You COULD save a life today!

Call 510-524-2776 if you want to participate, whether it is to ‘bottom-line’ your own action or event; or to join an existing action/event.

Folks who are not able to stop by during the day, go by in the eve or morning and chalk the side walks, leave flowers & peaceful messages, create peace installations on the sidewalks, or in any other creative way express your desire to have the station SHUT DOWN before the Holidays!

Call daily 510-705-8060, speak with Mr. Lund or any other recruiter and ask them to honor the Mandate for Peace the citizens of Berkeley have instituted since before the invasion of Iraq.

Together we WILL shut down this recruiting station! Marines out of Berkeley; Marines out of Iraq
