MRS (Marine Recruiting Station)
64 Shattuck Square
(on Shattuck Ave just south of University, where Shattuck runs one way north. And 2 blocks north of downtown Berkeley BART)

Help end recruiting! Come to the MRS at noon. Bring signs: END WAR NOW! Size 10! Leave Our Children Behind! Wear hot pink - or just BE THERE!
The economy is down, which means recruiting allegedly is up. 30,000 more troops will be sent to Afghanistan unless we stand up. England is pulling their troops out of Iraq, but ours are staying for "security" force - unless we stand up.
Come sing, chant, engage with potential soldiers and recruiters alike. March through downtown if weather permits.
