Counter Military Recruitment Action in Boston
New_Boston Counter- military recruitment action Aug. 2 2008 024.jpgAbout 200 anti-war activists picketed in front of the Boston armed forces recruitment center on Tremont Street. Protesters had a picket line directly in front of the center on the sidewalk. Across the street info tables were set up from Troops Out Now, Veterans For Peace, IrawqVeterans Against the War, and other peace groups. There was a small pro-war counter demonstration there with no incidents.

The picketers shouted spirited chants against the wars and the recruiting center. This action was part of a series of local actions across the country to stop a war against Iran. For more photos go to:
