This Saturday: Another Counter-Recruitment Protest in Oakland

Saturday, August 27: Anti-war/Counter Military Recruitment Protest in Oakland,

Saturday, August 27: Anti-war/Counter Military Recruitment Protest.

POG continues to counter military recruitment and demands that all charges be dropped against the protesters brutalized at last Saturday’s demonstration at the military recruitment station in Oakland.

This Saturday, Aug. 27 from 11am to 1pm at 3712 Forbes Ave. (Forbes Ave., between Atwood and Bouquet streets in Oakland), we will again protest at the military recruitment center. We hope that following the successful shutdown of the military recruitment center on Aug. 6 and Aug. 20, and given the police violence that followed A20, people will make a special effort to attend this event.

This picket is the next in POG’s ongoing counter-recruitment campaign whose aim is to stop the war in Iraq, educate young people on the realities of military enlistment, and counter the military/ government propaganda apparatus. This Saturday's picket rounds off a successful summer of counter-recruitment organizing by POG and others. Join us for the kick off a new season of dissent, as we say 'no' to military recruitment in our town. If the government won't stop the war, the people will. The event will be similar to the bi-weekly pickets we held throughout June and July in which participants stand on the sidewalk in front of the station, holding signs and distributing informational flyers about military recruitment practices and the realities of military service to passersby.

Thanks for your continued support and we hope to see you there.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
