Military recruitment, student privacy

How our country beefs up the military (in the past eight years through the Patriot Act of 2001 and its reauthorized version in 2006) figures strongly in a presentation to be given at the UFT headquarters on October 7th by two ICE members, Gloria Brandman and Lisa North, who also work with the Students or Soldiers Coalition.

The issue of recruitment in HSS has been taken up by the SOS Coalition, of which the New York Civil Liberties Union is a member. Highlights of the new DoE rules going into effect on recruitment are given on the NYCLU website.

Here’s the notice for the October 7th event. Brandman and North have spearheading a campaign to protect HSS students by speaking to various chapter leader meetings and elsewhere across the city.
