CADU Action at Armed Forces Recruitment
Many bemused passers- by took one look at the front
of the leaflet we gave out in front of the Manchester Armed Forces
Recruitment office on July 29th and immediately turned it over to
see what it was all about. They obviously didn’t see
the connection between the picture of the wheelchair and the
military. (They can’t have been reading our newletters!) .
We hope that those young men, perhaps “persuaded” by
their benefits offices into visiting the recruitment centre, will
think twice about joining up after reading our leaflet. We
noticed that the soldiers staffing the centre were very keen that
potential recruits avoid contact with us and these were ushered
in very speedily when we engaged them in conversation!
This was a useful exercise in giving out information that has been denied
to British soldiers in the past and that even now is not welcomed
by the authorities. It is something a very small group of
people can do in any town that has an army recruitment office.
It would also be useful to leaflet any recruitment or military
information stand at a summer fair or agricultural show.
Please contact the office if you would like some leaflets or if you would
like to borrow the excellent posters that DAAMDU have produced.
You can use your own props, such as an empty wheelchair or a zimmer
frame! We have a right to demonstrate peacefully.
Let's use it as often as we can.
