This is to let you know that NEW articles and updated content have recently been posted at http://www.comdsd.org/, the Web site of the San Diego-based Committee Opposed to Militarism and the Draft (COMD).
The current update includes three articles from the latest issue of COMD's printed newsletter, Draft NOtices:
- "Signs of a Coming Push to Further Militarize Schools," by Rick Jahnkow, analyzes the Pentagon's recent warnings of a possible recruiting crisis and the likelihood that it would lead Congress to impose a greater military presence in the public school system.
- "Immigration Reform and the Military." Jesus D. Mendez Carbajal reviews recent Obama administration changes in immigration policy and exposes the military-driven agenda behind these decisions.
- "Legal Changes in Military Sexual Assault," by Kathy Gilberd, describes some legal changes that have resulted in increased reporting of sexual assaults in the military, but also cautions that problems remain and require continued pressure on the military.
In addition to the above three articles, the current printed version of Draft NOtices celebrates its 35th year of publication and includes articles on the goals of corporate school reform and a community's overwhelming vote against converting their local middle school into a military academy.
