A counter-recruitment protest in front of military recruiting centers near the Borough of Manhattan Community College. The demonstration was part of a coordinated nationwide day of protest to coincide with the Supreme Court hearing to decide the FAIR v Rumsfeld case (brought by several universities), which will determine whether schools can ban military recruiters without losing federal funding. Currently, the Solomon Amendment allows the government to cut off federal funding from schools that ban military recruiters. This policy forces schools to accept military recruitment.
