Photos from Oct. 18 SAW Rally

"October 18th, 2005 - UCSC Students Against War (SAW) organized a nonviolent rally and Queer Kiss-in against the presence of military recruiters on the UC Santa Cruz campus.

About forty students participated in a Queer Kiss-in in protest of the military’s discriminatory “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell? policy. The Queer Kiss-in was staged in front of the military’s tables during the march and rally. From inside the fair, kissers were able to effectively block access to military recruiters without shutting down the entire career fair."
