GUESTS: Arlene Inouye, Coalition Against Militarism in Our Schools, Pat Elder, Peace Action Montgomery Anti-recruitment activists are hailing the recent announcement by the Los Angeles Unified School District of a new policy to better protect students’ personal information from the military. The policy is the result of discussions with teachers and the ACLU.

Stretched to supply the manpower to fight two wars, the US military has stepped up efforts to recruit teenagers and young adults.  Videogames, social networks, and the schools themselves are all fertile soil for Pentagon recruiters.  On this edition, guest host Anna Sussman hosts a roundtable discussion about the new face of military recruiting, and counter-recruiting efforts taking place. 

Featuring:

Sandra Schwartz, American Friends Service Committee San Francisco Peace Education Coordinator; David Ledesma, One Voice Executive Director; Sokthy Mean, Bay-Peace counter recruiter.

Well known in the national peace and justice scene, Pat has been organizing resistance to the Bush administration’s wars since 2001. Based in the DC area, Pat works with a wide range of groups, attempting to confront the militarization of the nation’s high schools. Pat Elder serves on the Coordinating Committee of the National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth, NNOMY.

On April 5, some 300 students and community members held a raucous demonstration at the UC Santa Cruz campus, where US military recruiters had a booth at the school's Job and Internship fair.

This is an interview with David, a member of Student Against the War, who organized the counter-recruitment protest. Interview was done as part of the Red X Show on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.1 FM) Tuesdays, 6-8pm.

Pat ElderPat Elder of the National Coalition to Protect Student Privacy (StudentPrivacy.org) explains how the U.S. military gets away with requiring students in thousands of U.S. high schools to take a 3-hour career inventory test with the results going straight to recruiters without students' or parents' knowledge.

Mar. 13, 2012 - (AP/Mary Altaffer) - Occupy Wall Street protesters participate in a rally against police brutality in New York City.

Many observers were surprised and even shocked by police methods used to subdue various "Occupy" demonstrations across the U.S. and Europe. There seems to be increasing dependence on methods of local policing that is eerily similar to how western militaries behave in the battlefield.

We took a look yesterday at the city of Chicago’s exploding surveillance camera systems. Today, we broaden the discussion with a look at increased militarization of local law enforcement in Western-societies. Stephen Graham is professor of Cities and Society at Newcastle University in the U.K. He examines the increasing influence of military technology on domestic police forces in his book Cities Under Siege: The New Military Urbanism.

Stephen Graham's interview comes ahead of a panel discussion tonight called "Chicago's Spy in the Sky." The panel is part of the Chicago History Museum’s “In the Know" series. It begins at 6:30pm on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at the Chicago History Museum. Rajiv Shah, who was on Worldview yesterday to talk about Chicago’s thousands of surveillance and smart cameras, will be on tonight's panel.

The brutality of what it means to occupy another country is on full display in Iraq even the mainstream press can't ignore the reality of life for ordinary Iraqis and for those standing up to join the resistance and kick the United States out of their country.
