Hi, Here is my response to Doug s suggestion about the National Guard recruitment party on Monday, Nov. 21 on the UF campus. Do you have any suggestions??Message 1 of 1 , Nov 18, 2005View SourceHi,Here is my response to Doug's suggestion about the National Guard recruitment party on Monday, Nov. 21 on the UF campus. Do you have any suggestions?? Can someone on UF campus help us????Hi Doug and Salina,Yes, I agree, these sorts of events need to be countered. The University of Florida really frowns on non-students demonstrating on campus. We need to find some students and faculty willing to step up and we can offer to be there in support of their efforts. I am forwarding your message (see below) to a few contacts I have at the University as well as our local yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/codepinkgainesvilleI have signs and banners I can bring on Monday if some folks at the University will step forward.Please respond if you can ......Keep Up the Struggle,Jacque Betz----- Original Message -----To: jacquebetz@...Sent: Friday, November 18, 2005 10:55 AMSubject: Army National Guard recruitment event (Monday) needs countering!Hello
I found you as the contact of the local Code Pink and I believe I met you
briefly at the 2000 mark vigil a few weeks back. My name is Doug Kiker, I'm
a UF librarian, and I have very strong feelings against the Irag war and
military in general. The reason I'm emailing you is that I have seen
several ads in the Alligator over the past few days that say the following:
"Grill With the Guard"
FREE: (in very large letters)
Games, Food, Prizes, Information
*catered by The Ale House
Got your attention? Check it out:
Monday, Nov. 21st/ 10AM-3PM
@ The Plaza of the Americas
Sponsored by The Army National Guard
I don't know about you, but I don't see how people of conscience can let
something like this go on without some kind of counterdemonstation or
presence. Do you know of any way to do a quick mobilization or have at
least a few people prepared to hold signs presenting opposition to such
brazen military recruitment on campus?
Thanks and hope to hear from you.
