Watch the ‘Draft Women? Hell No!’ presentation

Presenters:
Arianna Standish, Truth In Recruitment
Rivera Sun, CODEPINK
Edward Hasbrouck, Resisters.info
Bill Galvin, Center on Conscience and War

A bill introduced to Congress is trying to expand draft registration to women . . . but a network of peace activists, experienced draft resisters, antiwar feminists, and draft-age youth are working to not only stop it, but to abolish the draft for all genders.

Take action! Tell Congress not to expand draft registration to women, but to abolish it for everyone:

    This is a bad idea. Fact is the energy for the antiVietnam peace movement AROSE FROM the fact that ordinary people were — and college students were at risk of– being drafted. No Draft. No massive resistance to war. That simple.

      No draft, no Vietnam War.

    this presentation gives me hope. all of you think as i do about draft. i was in the last call for physicals in 73, and was very naive. i watched the national commission on service from all, and saw they are a bunch of elites who are use to being served! to them having virtual slaves “draftees” has always been thought of as their right. it is time our civilization started joining the rest of advanced civilized countries that have abolished the selective slave soldier systems. thanks again, and i think very highly of you all.
