Army and Marine recruiters will skip a job fair at the University of California at Santa Cruz, reports the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
SANTA CRUZ â€” UC Santa Cruz anti-war activists are claiming victory, saying their repeated efforts to keep military recruiters off campus have paid off.
. . . Members of Students Against War have disrupted three recruitment efforts since 2005. Last April, four recruiters left the fair with a police escort after a crowd of student protesters blocked the entrance to the building where the Army and National Guard had set up information tables.
Apparently, recruiters from regional offices decided Santa Cruz is a waste of time, though a local Army recruiter says he’ll continue to look for prospects at the university.
