"EQUAL ACCESS FOR COUNTER-RECRUITERS" Resolution Passes Unanimously

Recruiter Watch PDX wants to thank Military & Draft Counseling Project - War Resisters League (Portland), and its coordinator John Grueschow, for diligently pursuing the "equal access" concern for at least the last five years. As many of you may already be aware, the "equal access for counter-recruiters" (NOT anti-war protesters in general, as originally portrayed in THE OREGONIAN article) successfully passed last evening with a unanimous 7-0 vote! Congratulations, Military & Draft Counseling Project! It was a pleasure collaborating with you on this issue.

There have been a number of articles in corporate media and a plethora of comments to said articles. For the reality, please refer to the actual text of the Equal Access Resolution which can be found at:
