Press Conference and Rally TODAY 10:00a.m. in front of the M.R.S. to launch the campaign putting the Initiative on the ballot to refine Military Recruiting Zoning in Berkeley. We will explain the Initiative in detail and we will begin to get the 5000 signatures necessary to put this Initiative on the November ballot.

The Press Conference and Rally will be followed by a Debate, noon to 1:00p.m., between Medea Benjamin, CodePINK, and Melanie Morgan, KFSO right-wing talk show host.

CodePINK found out last September ‘07 that Marine Recruiters had invaded our peace-loving, anti-war town of Berkeley and set up an officer recruiting station targeting youth from U.C. Berkeley, Berkeley City College, and other colleges in the Bay Area. We have been holding “How Berkeley Can U BE” (see our calendar at http://www.bayareacodepink.org) daily and weekly events and actions in front of the M.R.S.* (Marine Recruiting Station) to halt business as usual at the station.

We have formed a coalition that is adding another vital dimension to our campaign to SHUT DOWN recruiting in our town: a Military Recruiting Zoning Ordinance Initiative to further regulate military recruiting in Berkeley.

We need YOUR help with THREE things! Please let us know if you are willing to:

* 1) endorse this action,
* 2) spread the word to your lists, (see blurb below)
* 3) if you can commit 5 folks (more if you can, less if you can’t) from your organization to being there

Also, if you want to speak or perform during the rally, please email Zanne at info (at) bayareacodepink (dot) org or call 510-524-2776.
