College Not Combat (repost)
Hey Guys, Vanessa Hua's article about videoblogging came out this morning in the SF Chronicle. She's got some really great things to say about all of us bay area vloggers, myself included. Thanks Vanessa.
After filming a protest against military recruiters at San Francisco State University's career fair in March, Josh Wolf immediately put the footage online. Shouting "Racist, sexist, anti-gay -- U.S.A. military go away," protesters surrounded the recruiters, who sat with stoic faces. Eventually, they left as students cheered.On March 9th, recruiters from both the Army Corps of Engineers and the Air Force Officer Training School came to San Francisco State University to attend a career fair held on campus.
"By watching, you should be able to see for yourself, and decide if it was a First Amendment issue or if students should be punished," said Wolf, 23, a psychology major.
Students from several groups on campus worked together to organize a rally against the military's presence on campus. The school's chapter of the College Republicans held a protest against the protesters. These counter-demonstrators played a much larger role in the original edit of this piece, but the general public seemed to think they were confused members of the anti-recruitment protestors so I had to cut them out.
