First Saturday Each Month in Patchogue Recruiting Station at 12-1:30pm

This Saturday from noon until 1:30 p.m. help protest against military
recruiting in our public schools, against the lies told by recruiters to our sons and daughters,
and against illegal occupations in the Middle East and all over the world.

As we begin our 6th year occupying Iraq, our presence is needed in the streets to voice our
opposition to empire and the need for truth in recruiting.

Meet at the recruiting offices at 116 E. Main St. in Patchogue on Montauk Hwy just west of Route 112.
