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:
- "Community Says 'No' to Another Military Academy," by Libby Frank, describing an official voter referendum passed by Chicago-area residents opposing the conversion of their local middle school into a Marine Corps academy.
- "JROTC Seeks Special Authorization to Teach Physical Education in California" by Isidro Ortiz, outlining an attempt to get state approval for JROTC instructors to teach PE in their military training classes.
- "Linkage of Draft Registration to California Driver's License Is Proposed Again," an alert regarding legislation making its way through the California state legislature.
In addition to the above three topics, the current printed version of Draft NOtices includes articles on: a lawsuit by U.S. sailors who were exposed to nuclear contamination in Japan; efforts by war contractors in San Diego to roll back a community plan that reduces exposure to toxic waste; and the firing of a teacher over statements made to JROTC cadets about sexual assaults in the military.
