    Cali Needs to go! Berkeley Against USMC Recruting Station: MERGED

    Inside Bay Area - Berkeley gives Marines the boot
    BERKELEY — Hey-hey, ho-ho, the Marines in Berkeley have got to go.
    That's the message from the Berkeley City Council, which voted 6-3, with Gordon Wozniak, Betty Olds and Kriss Worthington dissenting, to tell the Marines that its Shattuck Avenue recruiting station "is not welcome in the city, and if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome intruders."

    It also voted 7-2, with Wozniak and Olds dissenting, to explore enforcing its law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation against the Marines and to encourage the women's peace group Code Pink to protest in front of the station.



    In a separate item, the council voted 8-1 to give Code Pink a designated parking space in front of the recruiting station once a week for six months and a free sound permit for protesting once a week from noon to 4 p.m.

    Councilman Gordon Wozniak opposed both items.

    The Marines have been in Berkeley for a little more than a year, having moved from Alameda in December 2006. For about the past four months, Code Pink has been protesting in front of the station.

    "I believe in the Code Pink cause. The Marines don't belong here, they shouldn't have come here, and they should leave," Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates said after votes were cast.
    Seriously, what is going on in that state? God forbid we ever get attacked on the CONUS but if it were to happen I for one will not do anything to defend that state.

    I wonder what would happen if ALL Federal Funds were cut for this place?

    I doubt that the politicians would let that happen, but we can only wish.

    Any members near there? I think we need to stage a pro-military rally near the recruiting station.

    We should demand equal protection under the law in the form of a designated parking spot and free weekly sound permits.

    What a pathetic place. I wish the whole state would secede from the union. The border fence should be turned north at the Arizona - Kalifornia border and run up to Oregon and then over to the coast.

    Personally I keep hopeing that the big one will hit and the whole state will sink into the Pacific.

    To true to true ...... corse I could almost put up with it if they just all moved to Bolder - they would fit right in there- or at the very least stay on the front range

    Woa. not all of Cali is bad just the bay area liberals. I actually went to the protest on Shattuck avenue about two months ago with Melanie Morgan and friends Melanie Morgan and we went up against the code pinko stinko's. What a crazy bunch of losers. We outed them on that day and stood right there with all the red white and blue in their face. The amount of crazy libs in that city is unbelievable. They hate their own country, I just can't understand it they are against what gives them the right to say what they want to.

    Sweet.

    If you go again, insist on a designated parking space and free permits. The Berkeley City Council may not realize it, but they are now obligated under the Equal Protection Clause to provide those things to other protest groups, and they cannot discriminate on who they provide them to.
