Anti-draft group seeks 100,000 resisters

Even as the Pentagon has a campaign underway to attract 100,000 new recruits to the U.S. Armed Forces, the No Draft No Way organization is planning an anti-draft campaign to get 100,000 young people to sign a statement pledging they won’t accept military conscription.

Larry Holmes of the Troops Out Now Coalition remarked that “nothing gets people involved in activity like something that affects them personally,” like a draft, and that a “draft will be the nail in the coffin for endless war.”
