Opt Out (anti-recruitment) Rally - 14 Video's

These are 14 YouTube videos I took On Sept 14 2007 in a Portland city park by Madison High School, located right next to a skate park. I am working with PDXpeace and the MRR group (Military Resistance & Recovery)
They Hosted an Opt Out Rally for the local youths to get info on removing their names from the Pentagons List for possible Recruits for the war.
This event was a big free BBQ and soft drinks along with music and a few short speeches. Represented by many groups it was a Hugh success and seemed to be welcomed by the students and most the community.
