Parent Article: Recruiters Invade Worcester, Activists Plan Resistance
Hidden with code "Other"
Re: Let them decide their own future let them get out of the Worcester slums
05 Sep 2004
There you have it... exactly two of the problems.

1/ Worcester and MA are already filled w/ too many "social workers" that approach their jobs w/ class based prejudices. "get out of the slums" ... doesn't sound like someone working with people but alot more like someone looking DOWN on people. That was the whole issue with Ray Mariano threatening to 'close down the Valley'. Far more than race.. that was a class issue.

2/We can all continue to argue re: taking HS students to a recruitment event like this... BUT DO YOU REALLY THINK that this is an appropriate trip for the schools to take ELEMENTARY students on? They're just starting to learn the possiblities in front of them... don't track them into the military while they're 9 years old !
