Confronting military recruiters in Boston

Some of us who attend the weekly sat. peace vigil at Park Street in Boston heard from a passerby that the National Guard was staging a recruiting event/military display at Faneuil Hall a few blocks away. So after our vigil ended a little after 2pm, 3 of us went down to the National Guard event to protest.

Countering the Military Recruitment of Youth

I want you - enlist now I want you - enlist now

UJP Counter-Recruitment Campaign

Cutting the supply of troops: As the US military struggles to meet recruiting goals -- first in the National Guard and Marine Corps, and now in the Army and Army Reserve -- the face of the country’s war plans is changing. Through education and outreach to those targeted by military recruiters, we can directly impact the ability of the U.S. to not only maintain its current occupation of Iraq, but stifle its future deployment in other illegal and immoral conflicts throughout the world.


Educating youth and demilitarizing our schools: We need to get military recruiters out of our schools. UJP must work closely with students, parents, and teachers to reverse the militarization of our schools. Glorifying war and violence and the military as a way of life at the expense of the rest of society is wrong. Many youth choose military service as a means out of poverty--for job training, work experience, or a college education. Entering the military and risking your life and lives of others is not the only option for a job or an education. By exposing the truth about military service and offering youth other options, they can make a more informed decision about their future.
