Bay Area CODEPINK is rocking our world. One of the pillars of the war machine is military recruitment; our sisters in Berkeley, California are using all their energy and love to bring that pillar down!

Last year,much to the shock of anti-war Berkeley, a Marines Recruiting Station opened in the heart of the city. CODEPINK has been protesting its presence ever since with breastfeeding circles, yoga, singing and other life-affirming vigils. The citizens of Berkeley have made it clear that they reject Bush's failed military policy in Iraq and refuse to participate by allowing military recruitment of their children into an endless occupation.

Last Tuesday,the Berkeley City Council voted to send a letter to the Marines Recruiting Station stating they're unwanted intruders in the community; they also voted to give CODEPINK a parking space and sound permit to demonstrate outside the Station.

The following day, CODEPINK launched the first ever zoning initiative to limit military recruiting stations in the area and the Berkeley City Council is doing what they can to adopt the measure quickly. To read about the historic initiative, which has spawned news stories, support around the country, and more hate mail than we've received... :lol:

"Breastfeeding Circles" :D :roll:

C'mon now ff... think about it. Would you really want the progeny of the flower power generation fillin' the ranks of the Marine Corps anyway? :D

They are a different breed down there. I saw somewhere on tv about a month ago that U of C wanted to cut down some trees to build something. Of course a percentage of the student body started to protest by living in the trees. They were even throwing bags of urine at people. I remember thinking that the fire dept. should bring out the water cannons and hose them right out of there.

Too many of the pistossers have been to Knowland Park Zoo and watched the Chimpanzee toss feces at the crowd. Monkey see monkey do.
