Some Background Info about Previous Holyoke Protest
29 Sep 2005
Heres some background info about a previous Holyoke Anti-war protest; from:

http://www.socialistworker.org/2005-1/539/539_11_Recruiters.shtml

-- In Holyoke, Mass., military recruiters were evicted from Holyoke Community College after failing to abide by restrictions placed on them by the administration. Recruiters are required to schedule appointments a week in advance and remain at a designated table outside the cafeteria. When students saw recruiters flouting these rules, they quickly made up signs, mobilized others and challenged the recruiters.

After the appropriate bureaucrats were informed, the recruiters were told to leave amid cheering from students. The same day, the Student Senate suspended several College Republican senators for improperly trying to rescind recognition of the student antiwar group on campus.
