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.

This is it! The hopes of 5,500+ young people in our communities depend on YOU!
Amidst a youth jobs crisis, more than 5,500 Boston youth will be denied jobs this summer due to city, state, and federal budget cuts. A cut of just 2,000 jobs in Boston brings us back to 2005 funding levels, when we had 75 homicides in the city.

The National Counter-Recruitment and Demilitarization Conference is less than a month away! On July 17-19 in Chicago, IL, a broad spectrum of people will come together to share skills and to form the relationships needed to build a permanent resistance to militarism.
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.
