Pasadena Recuitment Center Action a Success!

Catholic Workers Jeff Dietrich and Ed Pilolla, regular kitchen volunteer Dick Hieser and five other determined people blocked the doors of the Pasadena City College Military Recruitment Center for five hours last Friday. The eight risking arrest and the crowd of supporters spent the time holding signs for the passing traffic and talking to the young recruits. Though there was a large police presence no one was arrested. After five hours the marines who were in charge gave up and closed for the day. Click here for pictures of the action
