Peace activists will be providing information to students the military won’t provide – How to get out if you join, stats on jobs, giving up your rights, and more, at Santa Ana High School on Thursday, May 30, 2013, at 6:30 am, according to a Facebook event page.
The event organizers are asking their followers to “be polite and don’t walk on school property, and please don’t block sidewalks.” And apparently they will have fliers in Spanish for parents, too.
Hopefully none of the protesters will have drugs on them or any previous convictions for child molestation, as that will land them in jail very quickly. You have to believe that the Santa Ana School Police, who report to the Santa Ana Police Department, will be there in full force.
I personally oppose most wars but I do think that the military has a right to recruit at our high schools. And for some kids going to the military can be a blessing as they can get through college and get on the path to U.S. citizenship via military service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
It should be noted that local Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez married a defense lobbyist, as did her sister, Linda Sanchez, who also serves in the U.S. House of Representatives. Both Sanchez sisters have reportedly become very wealthy by investing in the stocks of various defense firms.
