Help SHUT DOWN military recruiting in Berkeley! And eventually around the country!

We are committed to having a HOT PINK presence for peace and against recruiting our vulnerable youth all day Wednesdays, from 7:30a.m. until 5:00p.m.

Special Events:
12:00 noon: Lift Our Voice In Song, usually with Betsy Rose, or Carrie Gerendasy (Average Dyke Band)

2:00pm Open Mike - share stories from the front lines (at the MRS)

3:00pm Dance for Peace with Dolores - tap, salsa hip hop our way to Peace!

PLEASE join us for a 2 hour shift if you are willing and able! We banner, hand out flyers, engage potential recruits and recruiters in conversing about their choices and ending the occupation.

We also have initiatives to get signed, play bridge, meet amazing folks, and exchange ideas and strategies while building hope and determination.

Call 510-524-2776 for more info.

This is part of CodePINK’s "How Berkeley Can U BE" in front of the Marine Recruiting Station*, as we SHUT DOWN recruiting in Berkeley.

Please see the calendar at for details and the complete schedule and JOIN US any time! And/or feel free to start your own action too!

Together we WILL END WAR and SHUT DOWN recruiting NOW!

*M.R.S. is located at 64 Shattuck Square, Berkeley - on Shattuck Ave, just south of University Ave, where Shattuck runs one-way north; and just 2 blocks north of Berkeley BART
