How Berkeley Can U Be at Marines Recruiting CenterNovember 27, 2007
East Bay CODEPINK
Folks are stepping up to the Station and doing on-going actions almost every day now, reaffirming the message that Berkeley is an anti-war City of Peace who will NOT tolerate the recruiting of our youth to be used as cannon fodder or instruments of genocide in Iraq.
Preventing recruitment is even more crucial today as over 120 U.S. soldiers are committing suicide WEEKLY after being in Iraq (as reported by Katie Couric of CBS News)! We MUST prevent more deaths!
