Study War No More: Close ROTC at Santa Clara University

We processed with our banners across the university to attend the welcome weekend Mass and challenge the University to live out the Gospel message of peace and nonviolence by closing their long standing ROTC program.   Campus security immediately told us we were not welcome, and as we didn’t leave, they called the local police. Because there were so many parents and families going to Mass, the police stood by and did not approach us until almost everyone was inside the building. We had distributed over 200 leaflets, many people were friendly, and read the leaflet.  The police then said that the university did not want us attending Mass. However, some of us went in with our banners, and were escorted off campus by police after mass. Others were escorted off campus before Mass by campus security.
