Kansas: Lawrence Recruitment Center Littered with Names of Dead

Today at approximately 4pm, a group of six Lawrence community members entered the U.S. Marine Recruitment Center at the 23rd and Louisiana shopping center.

They proceeded to empty large bags containing slips of paper all over the office. The slips of paper listed the names and other information of Iraqis and U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq. There were around 3500 names on pieces of paper, which covered most of the center’s floor.

The recruiter seemed flustered and confused, and quite annoyed at the mess being made of his office. The six left after about thirty seconds, but not before also dropping their printed statement (the full text is below).

This is one of a series of nonviolent demonstrations that has targeted this recruitment center, and more are planned.
