Description
Military Myths CoverA short video that focuses on youth of color and the racial/economic profiling politics behind recruitment. “‘Military Myths’ takes a critical look at the military’s promises of travel, money for education and job training. It considers how media representations of war and military life compare to the reality of war told by veterans who have actually been there. In addition, interviews with activists and students are presented along with statistics from the Veterans Administration, CCCO, SLDN, and recent Pentagon studies that lay clear the myths of military life.”  28 minutes

Army of none:

Front Cover
strategies to counter military recruitment, end war, and build a better world
Seven Stories Press, 2007 - History - 194 pages

An activist's guide to combating military recruitment.

Uniformed U.S. Army Officers lunch with students in elementary school cafeterias. Army training programs including rifle and pistol instruction replace physical education in middle schools. Like never before, military recruiters are entering the halls of U.S. schools with unchecked access in an attempt to bolster a military in crisis.

However, even as these destructive efforts to militarize youth accelerate, so do the creative and powerful efforts of students, community members, and veterans to challenge them. Today, the counter recruitment movement-from counseling to poetry slams to citywide lobbying efforts-has become one of the most practical ways to tangibly resist U.S. policy that cuts funding for education and social programs while promoting war and occupation. Without enough soldiers, the U.S. cannot sustain its empire.

Army of None exposes the real story behind the military-recruitment complex, and offers guides, tools, and resources for education and action, and people power strategies to win.

Army veteran Aimee Allison has led school and community counter-recruitment activities over the last decade. She is a contributor to 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military. Global justice and antiwar organizer David Solnit is the editor of Globalize Liberation: How to Uproot the System and Build a Better World.

ARMY OF NONE PROJECT COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU!

Army vet Aimee Allison and global justice organizer and puppeteer David Solnit will travel on 40-city tour to offer training and presentations in support of local counter recruitment and antiwar efforts during 2007-2008.
