Encampment Youth Take the Streets: Demand Troops Out Now!
About 50 youth just returned to the Encampment from a militant march through the streets of Washington. They took the streets as they marched from the Department of Education to focus on the lack of money for education; to the Department of Justice to demand an end to police brutality and justice for the Jena 6; to a military recruiters office to protest the recruitment of youth to kill and die for wars of profit; and finally to the Capitol building to say "No Justice, No Peace! U.S. Out of the Middle East."

Although they were pursued by more than a dozen police vehicles, they managed to hold the street for about 20 blocks.

There were no arrests -- in fact the march returned to the Encampment with more youth than they started with, as several groups of bypassers joined the march along the way.
