caption: On Feb 9, a forum on why and how people should stop recruiters took place at Laney college. The event, Stop Recruitment! Stop the war! was organized by a wide range of groups ( Code Pink, World Cant Wait, Women for Peace, United for Peace and Justice, Peace and Freedom Party, and students groups at Laney). A main topic that came up again and again was the latest resolution of the Berkeley City Council that called the recruiters “unwelcome intruders” and gave Code Pink free permit to have a weekly demonstration and a sound permit. Since than, the City Council came under enormous attacks; ranging from senators who are trying to pass a bill to deny federal money from Berkeley, to extreme right wing groups such as Move America Forward and Gathering of Eagles, who are planning to have a demonstration this Tuesday in front of the City Council.
