 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.

Eliminate Selective Service for Everyone

The "Eliminate Selective Service for Everyone" campaign category addresses the antiquated Selective Service system and the demand for its elimination. With the issue of women now being qualified for combat duties including fighting, the issue has been brought before the congress and senate of the United States to require women to register, like men, in the years when young adults are typically drafted into the services to fight wars if the draft needs to be re-initiated in the event of a national crisis where there are not sufficient troops to meet the troop requirement.

This campaign, "Eliminate Selective Service for Everyone," asks for the elimination of this demand based on it being a violation of basic and internationally recognized human rights protocols including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Activists fought the US military draft for decades — they may soon have to again

You may not have heard about this development because of the avalanche of COVID-19 news. In late March, a national commission urged Congress to mandate that all women between 18 and 25 enroll with the Selective Service System, the agency that oversees the military draft.

El registro de servicio selectivo merece una audiencia completa en el Congreso

La elección no es entre continuar con el registro de reclutas solo para hombres (que probablemente resulte inconstitucional) y expandir el registro a mujeres. La verdadera elección es si ampliar el registro a las mujeres o ponerle fin por completo. Los proyectos de ley para cada una de esas opciones se presentaron en la última sesión del Congreso y es probable que se vuelvan a presentar en los próximos meses como parte de la Ley de Autorización de Defensa Nacional anual.

Esta es una elección sobre el militarismo, no una elección sobre la igualdad de género. Ampliar el registro de reclutamiento a las mujeres generaría una apariencia de igualdad en la guerra (aunque es probable que las mujeres en el ejército aún estén sujetas a acoso y abuso sexual desproporcionado). Poner fin al registro de proyectos traería consigo una verdadera igualdad en la paz y la libertad.

Selective Service Registration Deserves a Full Hearing in Congress

The choice is not between continuing male-only draft registration (which is likely to be found unconstitutional) and expanding registration to women. The real choice is whether to expand registration to women or to end it entirely. Bills for each of those options were introduced in the last session of Congress, and are likely to be reintroduced within the next few months as part of the annual National Defense Authorization Act.

This is a choice about militarism, not a choice about gender equality. Expanding draft registration to women would bring about a semblance of equality in war (although women in the military would likely still be subject to disproportionate sexual harassment and abuse). Ending draft registration would bring about real equality in peace and freedom.
