Santa Cruz Recruiters Closed for Peace Until Further Notice

"Santa Cruz Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines recruiting offices stayed closed all day Wednesday, March 5, 2003, because of a large rally and civil disobedience action held outside their offices at 41st and Clares Streets in Capitola. They will remain 'closed for peace' until further notice, as recruiters plan to stay away as long as protests continue."

Santa Cruz Anti-war Activists Close Military Recruiting Center

"Over a hundred people rallied outside of the Armed Forces Recruitment Center in Capitola to express their opposition to the impending threat of a United States invasion of Iraq. Part of the National Moratorium to Stop the War on Iraq, today's action marked the first coordinated effort at a worldwide day of non-violent direct action to resist war.

Local activist and religious leader Sharon Delgado declared the action a success, noting, 'We shut them down. The police informed the recruiting officers that maybe today would be a good day to take the day off. We're glad that they joined us by taking the day off on this international day of action.'"
