Students Vandalize Recruiting Office

1966 or 2006? Today 500-600 high school students left their classes in the Twin Cities to protest the Iraq War. The peaceful protest included some civil disobedience with some paint thrown on the window of the recruiting office near the University of Minnesota Campus. Students said what one person in their group did to draw attention to their cause pales in comparison to the death in Iraq and the money being diverted from education and healthcare in the US. I have learned from reading other eye-witness reports that the paint thrown at the recruiting office was the action of a sole protester and that many in the group disagreed with that action.

The good news about this rally is that young people are engaged in the political discourse. Imagine the tunrout and reaction if there were a military draft. This should be a warning to policy makers about engaging in more optional, pre-emptive wars.

Here is a link to story I wrote about the protest: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/4/29/114853/825
