As part of reclaiming the true purpose of Mother's Day, we will engage in a week of actions toward the great and general interests of peace!

Each day this week will be focused on one group of women:

Monday, our focus is Grandmothers, who will volunteer to be recruited instead of our grandchildren;

Tuesday will focus on Mothers who STILL say NO to War;

Wednesday on Daughters of War Speak Out;

Thursday on Sistahs Don't Allow Sistahs in a War Zone;

and our last day, Friday will be witches, crones, sirens doing rituals and casting spells on the recruiters, the landlord, and any other pro-war profiteers operating in Berkeley.

Join us for any and all of these days of action! Check each day out for details!

Come out for a minute, an hour, this day and every day for this Mother's Day Women's Week of Actions at the MRS! You don't have to be a Grandmother, Mother, Sistah, or Witch, Crone, Siren to BE THERE!

All actions this week are at the MRS (Marine Recruiting Station, 64 Shattuck Square, Berkeley - on Shattuck Ave just south of University where Shattuck runs one-way north - and two blocks north of the BART)
