Milwaukee, WI Demonstrates Against Militarization of Schools

CNV Milwaukee Actoin 9-24 (2)

CNV Milwaukee Actoin 9-24 (1)On September 24, 1968 the Milwaukee 14 burned thousands of 1A draft files as a protest against Selective Service system and the Vietnam War. On September 24, 2014 CNV action organizers burned ROTC recruiting material as a protest against the militarization of our schools and the endless wars of the USA.

Marquette University and Notre Dame University are the only two Catholic Universities in the USA to host Department of Defense military officer training for the Army, Navy/Marines and Air Force. All Universities and Colleges in Southeastern send students to Marquette for military training that includes the priority of Army Values over Gospel values and Reflexive Killing, Killing without Conscience.

After the protest and burning a few of the participants went over to the office of the new President of Marquette University to deliver a letter asking him: Marquette University, Be Faithful to the Gospel,and No Longer Host Departments of Military Sciences. Marquette Security prevented them from entering the administration building.

Marquette Students, faculty, alumni and peacemakers will have protested the militarization of Marquette University since 1968, and hope to see an end to military training at this university which also hosts the Catholic Worker and Dorothy Day archives.
