Army of None
October 17, 2007 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
With the Army of None Project, David Solnit aims to counter military recruitment, end war, and build a better world. He is traveling across the United States to share his knowledge and experience with the counter-recruitment movement, one of the fastest-growing, most strategic forms of community organizing.
The military recruitment complex insinuates itself into the daily lives of children and youth in ways of which most people are not aware. Millions of dollars are poured into advanced marketing strategies; recruiters walk freely into classrooms with false promises of a way out of poverty.
The Army of None Project argues that childhood should be free of military influence and the constant pressure to enlist. This is not just a way to protect our most valuable national resource– children; it is an effective way to take local action to provide equal opportunity and youth leadership training for those who bear the burden of fighting in Iraq and beyond.
