Workshop exposes the racist and classist structure and recruiting practices of the U.S. military.
On Thursday evening at 7:30 at the American Friends Service Committe in Pasadena (980 N. Fair Oaks Ave.), Mario Hardy Ramirez of the Central Committe for Conscientious Objectors will lead a workshop that explores the racist and classist structures of the U.S. military and its recruiting practices.
Ramirez states that the military uses deception to lure low income and minority youth into the lowest ranks of the military to use them as cannon fodder in the event of a war. Statistics show that the military, far from giving young people discipline and skills they can use to advance themselves in civilian life, actually impairs their ability to be successful in society at large. One study found that individuals from similar demographic backgrounds earned .25 per hour less if they had served in the military. Furthermore, the majority of recruits that apply for educational assistance don't get any assistance at all. Meanwhile the military actually makes money from the college aid progams because recruits have to pay a 00 nonrefundable deposit to enter the program.
Ramirez will also have with him the latest issue of AWOL magazine, a hip hop rag that promotes peace and justice.
