Over 4,000 Dead US Troops in Iraq; Capitola Army Recruiters Stay Open for Business

Protests and vigils were held across the nation on March 24th following an announcement the day before of 4,000 dead US soldiers in Iraq. A demonstration was held at the Military Recruitment Center in Capitola, where a Santa Cruz County coalition known as People United for Peace (PUP) demanded “an immediate end to the killing and occupation in Iraq.” One woman was arrested for trespassing as she occupied the Army’s recruiting office and refused to leave until the occupation of Iraq is over.
