The Berkeley City Council NEEDS your support!
Join us this coming Tuesday night, February 12, at the Berkeley City Council meeting where councilmembers will discuss the city's position about the Marines Recruiting Station.
They need to see a visible, vibrant peace presence to further our collective efforts to help make Berkeley a military recruiting-free zone!
Your presence is crucial at this meeting, especially because the right wing, including Melanie Morgan's pro-war Move America Forward, the Marines in their full gear, and the student republicans, are all planning on attending. The right wing has mobilized people to submit vitriolic hate mail and calls to pressure the council to rescind their anti-war stance. We'll be there to support the council to pursue peace and not back down!
Wear pink, bring your friends, your kids, anyone you know who's against this war! The meeting starts at 7 pm, but please show up as early as you can ~ by 5 pm if possible~ to get a seat as seating is limited. We'll also have a powerful pink presence outside the meeting hall.
