Oct.7 NAtl Day Against Military Recruitment

************************************
October 7: Stop the Military Recruiters!
************************************
This October 7th, on the second anniversary of the bombing of Afghanistan, the Not In Our Name Youth Network is calling on youth and students to take a stand against the military recruiters. As the US Government’s war and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan continue, the recruiters have become even more aggressive in targeting us in our schools and communities, as well as on the airwaves. Increased ads on MTV and BET, as well as in magazines and billboards, are meant to complement recruitment efforts on campuses, creating an environment of militarism which cannot be ignored or avoided.

The unjust and immoral wars that the government wages in our name can only continue with a constant supply of fresh recruits. We have a responsibility to stand with the people of the world and refuse to fight in these wars of empire. Every day more and more young people are enticed with empty promises and outright lies about the purposes and benefits of the military. We must counter this by spreading truth and resistance to the war machine.

We won’t be the cops of the world!

We refuse to take part in the killing and torturing of innocent people and the occupying of their lands! Dick Cheney said this “war on terrorism” could last a generation. We say it is going to take a generation to stop these wars.

The Anti-Recruitment campaign is a youth-led initiative aimed at stopping the recruiters. This broad campaign will bring together youth from around the country to speak out against and resist the military’s invasion of our schools, as we say powerfully and with many voices: NOT IN OUR NAMES!

On October 7th do everything possible to speak out and organize against the military recruiters:

• Walk-outs: Either the recruiters leave or we leave!
• Speak-outs: On or off campus, unite with other youth!
• Teach-ins: Educate and learn from one another!
• Concerts: Art as resistance!
• Street theatre: Act out against militarism!
• Direct Action: Manifest resistance at military recruitment stations or recruitment booths at your school!
• Sponsor: Have your organization sign on in support!
• Promote: Spread the word far and wide that youth are standing up to military recruiters!


For teachers, parents, and community leaders: While this is a youth led campaign, we need your help and support. Demand that the military recruiters stop targeting your sons, daughters, students and the youth for their endless wars. Support the youth, students, and soldiers who resist! Join in the organizing and resistance on October 7.
