      Berkeley City Council Calls Marines “Unwelcome Intruders”
       
      The City of Berkeley, California passed two resolutions attacking the United States Marine Corps, calling the Marines, “uninvited and unwelcome intruders in the city.”
       
      The Berkeley City Council voted to condemn the Marines on Tuesday night, January 29th, as part of a campaign by anti-war activists to shut down the U.S. Marine Recruiting Center located in the city.
        
      The actions by the Berkeley City Council followed continuous protests by Code Pink and other anti-military organizations that vandalized and defaced the U.S. Marine Recruiting Center in September 2007.
       
      One of the two resolutions passed by the Berkeley City Council granted a parking spot in front of the Marine Recruiting Center to be used by anti-military activists to harass Marine recruiters.  The anti-military activists would not need to apply for a sound permit for the next six months – allowing them free reign to disrupt the day-to-day operations by the Marines.
       
      Concerning the action of the Berkeley City Council in regard to the USMC Recruiters in Berkeley, Don Hale, Region President, stated in part, "We Navy League folks are currently organizing with others to turn back this left-wing tide."
       
      Move America Forward is leading a protest 1700, Tuesday, February 12th. Below is the latest information on the subject available on the internet. Just for information at the bottom of this PCR website post are some details of the group's intended course of action. Don will return to Northern California in a few days and will likely provide guidance for councils and members.
