Mother's Day To End The War

By SOP newswire2

BERKELEY – As part of week of actions for Mother's Day to end the war, and end recruiting in Berkeley for the armed forces, "Witches, Crones and Sirens" will weave a little magic Friday here.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Friday – at the U.S. Marine Recruiting Station (64
Shattuck Square near University) – witches and others will cast spells and other magic to say "farewell" to the Marine Recruiters. Events will take place at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. 10 and throughout the day.

"We want to protect our youth from the powerful spells of pro-war forces, to lead the men of the marine recruiting station off into the oceans of peace," said those planning to participate in the peace action Friday.

Earlier this week, grandmothers – who unsuccessful tried to get recruiters to take them instead of younger people – sisters and daughters all rallied to end the war as part of the Mother's Day actions, said CodePINK.
