Police Attack Peaceful Students Protesting Recruitment on Campus


As of 11:30am, there was a protest at Holyoke Community College against
military recruiters. The protesters were not blocking the recruiters, but
were just trying to counter protest and provide real information about what
the military does.

The police arrived and started knocking people to the ground and
macing them. The College Republicans were there encouraging the
police to attack the protesters. Reportedly, the College Administration
called the police.

Please immediately call 413-538-7000 and register your outrage with the
President's office at the College's attack on peaceful protest on a public
campus.

Thank you!

For more information, please contact Charles Peterson of the HCC Anti-War
Coalition charlest.peterson@gmail.com

More news on this situation will follow.

**A while back i stated that i beleived that police were beyond that conduct. I freely admit now that i was wrong. What frightens me more is the possibillity that regular U S Army troops, and National Guard Troops may in fact commit worse act's against American citizen's. Also, ofcourse, is the Black Water security personel and other's who are deffinatly prone to this conduct. Subsequently, i now fear another Kent State incident may be around the courner.
Any student planning involvement in future protesting action would be well advised to be cautious and have escape route's planed in advance. you might also consider heading to the nearest army surplus store and purchasing a M-17-A-1 protective mask. New filters can be purchased through Brigade Quartermaster. The surplus Isreali mask is an excellent second choice. It has an external filter that is easily changed out in the field. Student's should acquire tear gas of some sort (mace) whatever, and expose yourself to this chemical for trainning purposes. learn not to rub your eyes. Thats the biggie, right there. NO EYE RUBBIN! When your in an area doing your thing, note the wind direction. The carrier of the chemical agent flows with the wind. Smoke is the common carrier. When ever possible, have the wind blowing from behind you to your front. That reduces the effect's and exposure.

REMEMBER DON'T RUB YOUR EYE'S! THEY WILL WATER UP IN EXPOSURE, AND WILL BURN A LITTLE BUT IT WILL NOT BLIND YOU. IF YOU RUB YOUR EYES, THAT WILL ONLY MAKE IT WORSE. EVACUATE THE AREA IMMEDIATLY. KNOW THE WIND DIRECTION!**HUMPHREY**

KIDS, YOU BETTER GET A GAS MASK**HUMPHREY
