Berkeley vs. the Marines

Did the city of Berkeley, California, tell the US Marines that their recruiting office was not welcome there? Yes, they did.

BERKELEY, Calif. Local officials in this liberal city say it’s time for the U.S. Marines to move out.

The City Council has voted to tell the Marines their downtown recruiting station is not welcome and “if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome guests.”

The measure passed this week by a vote of 8-1.
