All around the U$, Recuiters are Feeling the Heat

Escalations in protest against military recruitment locally and nationally have shown results. Recuiters have been harassed, confronted, sued, kicked out, and engaged in dialogue. And they are worried.

Free Radio call-in (.mp3) and info from the Capitola Recuiting office and the Watsonville "job" faire.

LOCAL Announcement :: Arts & Culture

santa cruz vegans and veggies, unite here!

while checking out i came across an article on new york indymedia called, "Meetup's Fees." The article says, "Meetup Inc. the social networking site started charging fees of 19/month to have their groups meet and this has led many group managers to quit as organizers."

I hope that vegans and veggies in Santa Cruz turn to more "do it yourself" methods of online organizing. In the past, meetup has been used by santa cruz veggie eaters.
