- "The $15/hour Minimum Wage Campaign Is Counter-recruitment," by Rodrigo de la Rosa, explains how the movement to raise the minimum wage in the U.S. could help activists working to counter military recruitment.
In addition to the above three articles, the current printed version of Draft NOtices includes such topics as the amount of money devoted to war in the U.S. federal budget, protecting students' privacy from recruiters, and insight into the mentality of military recruiters.
