“Bloodbath” at Boston Military Recruiting Center

by

From Boston Indymedia: On the second anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, a group of local activists staged a dramatic protest outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center at 650 American Legion Highway in Roslindale. At noon, the Boston Direct Action Project dumped five gallons of fake blood and then took up positions on the doorstep. The activists portrayed a dead Iraqi woman, her grieving husband, a dead U.S. soldier and his grieving wife. More photos here

    Again, we see a potentially highly effective protest ineptly executed.

    A closed recruiting station? In a desolate mall?

    My goodness people – wake up! You MUST take this “fight” where it will have a maximium impact.

    For the nth time… How about in front of the gates of Fort Hamilton on a “Processing Saturday” for the NYC MEPS? I keep posting this suggestion and am willing to share my knowledge on how to effectively do this, but no one bothers to reply!

    How about such an action in front of the ASVAB “Mobile Examination” sites in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Patchogue, West Orange or Teaneck?

    Having committed followers and great street theater will not further the cause if no one sees them.

    His wife got 250,000. Soldiers know the risk. That’s what makes us soldiers.

    Sorry I am just coming across this blog now. I live on Long Island and do regular protests at the Patchogue recruiting station. I have never heard of the ASVAB “Mobile Examination” site. Do you have more info? Thanks!

    You have no business protesting outside recruiting centers. While it is a supported right, it is, again, not your business. A person interested in serving with the United States Armed Forces approaches a recruiting center on their own to get accurate information. I know the whole shpiel you have about recruiters lying, but the vast majority don’t. The Armed Forces is an excellent career or other choice option for many Americans, and is fully necessary for the well being of our country. Wise up and let people make choices on their own, not with you in their way. You are no better than those who stand outside abortion clinics and call people killers.

    Proud Honors Student looking forward to serving with the United States Armed Forces,

    Mike
