Help Some High School Kids Protest the War

At a school near Chicago, dozens of students protested the Iraq war and protested the recruiters who were there to try to convince them to join the military. The students were suspended for 10 days and 37 of them are threatened with expulsion. Parents have joined in the protest. One father wrote,"The Army recruiters continue to aggressively hunt down every Hispanic male student as they enter the front door of the high school (since the school is 80% Hispanic) to promise them the world and then send them to Iraq or Afghanistan to get killed for Bush's Oil, but a peaceful protest, in which the students cleaned up after themselves, is bad and worth losing their high school education over."
We can help the kids in their protest by signing and forwarding In Defense of the Morton West Antiwar Students petition.
