 Militarization of our Schools

The Pentagon is taking over our poorer public schools. This is the reality for disadvantaged youth.


What we can do

Corporate/conservative alliances threaten Democracy . Progressives have an important role to play.

 Why does NNOMY matter?

Most are blind or indifferent to the problem.
A few strive to protect our democracy.

Two Catholic antiwar activists were arrested this Sunday at the Lakewood Military Recruiting Center.

Thirty activists gathered around noon at the Lakewood Military Recruiting Center, to protest the war and discourage potential recruits from joining the military.

While some read the names of those killed in the Iraq war, others gathered signatures that will be sent to Senators DeWine and Voinovich, asking them to bring the troops home.

Joe Mueller and Chris Knestrich took things a bit farther, and committed an act of civil disobedience. They entered the unlocked front door of the building, and knelt down inside to pray. After some time, three police officers showed up and asked them several times to leave. When they refused, both Joe and Chris were arrested and charged with criminal trespass.

When the vigil was over, twenty-four of the protesters went to the Lakewood Police Station, to show solidarity with them, and pray for them.

Joe Mueller and Chris Knestrich were later released on $124 bond each.
