Melanie Morgan has set the date and issued a call to arms:
We will rally to support our troops and denounce efforts by Code Pink and others to ‘chase’ the military out of Northern California. We make our stand at the Marine Recruiting Center in Berkeley which has just been defaced by anti-war protestors.
Code Pink has a rally planned to denounce the miltiary on Wednesday, October 17th. We are calling on YOU the patriotic mainstream of this nation to join with us and counter their effort with a pro-troop show of support for our military men and women!
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17TH – 12:00 NOON PACIFIC
Marine Recruiting Center
Located at Shattuck Square (at the intersection of University Avenue and Shattuck)
From Move America Forward Chairman, Melanie Morgan:
I have a favor to ask.
Code Pink has vandalized the Marine Recruiting Center in Berkeley, California and is harrassing the landlord to cancel the lease for the ‘illegal, immoral, unjust’ war machine–calling our guys ‘TRAITORS.’
Code Pink says it is going to demonstrate there until the Recruiting station is driven out of Berkeley.
I am furious about this insult to our troops, and I am organizing a counter protest for Wednesday, October 17th at high noon. I am planning to bring as many of our KSFO audience as possible, plus do a big Move America Forward push for a large crowd.
