Help SHUT DOWN the "new" Marine military recruiting station in Berkeley – 64 Shattuck Square, Berkeley:

We are committed to having a HOT CodePINK presence for Peace every Wednesday all day. Wear HOT PINK, bring signs “NOT IN BERKELEY” and “LEAVE US BEHIND” – or just be there!

11:30-1:30ish - lift your voice in song for peace with Betsy Rose, Carrie Gerendasy (Average Dyke Band), and others

3:30-5:00ish - learn hiphop, salsa, tap - dancing for peace with Dolores Helman!

Sign up for a two hour shift if you are able – 510-524-2776 – or just show up! We ESPECIALLY need CodePINKers from the 9:30-11:30 and the 11:30a-1:30p shifts

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"

Sign up 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 SHUT DOWN in honor of 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
