No business as usual on the 5th anniversary of the war. Shut down the Berkeley Marine Recruiting Station!
1 million Iraqis are dead. Over 4 million have become refugees. Torture, rape, and murder are being carried out daily by the U.S. occupation. It's time to SHUT DOWN the recruiting stations that have been lying to and manipulating the youth for 5 years to get them to kill and die for this war.
Quit waiting for Obama to stop the war! If we thought it was gonna be easy to end this war for oil, power, and empire... we were fooling ourselves. But it is possible. The majority of this country is against the war. It’s time to step up Berkeley’s determined put-your-body-on-the-gears-of-the-machine resistance, and spread it throughout the country! Join us in an all day protest at the recruiting station. Then come to San Francisco with us for a 5PM rally and march beginning at Civic Center.
We’re setting an example for the rest of the country... I’m not really a “Berkeley person”, I’m a “We-Need-To-Stop-This” person.
-Berkeley High Student, February 12
We will also be joining the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Rally & March in San Francisco at 5 PM beginning at Civic Center
