I recieved this in a FR mail a couple of weeks ago and now it is posted on the Eagles Up website.

As you can see it was created by Doug Lyvere, SgtMaj, Marine ret.

Although MAF or Free Republic aren't involved in the organization of this event, it looks like some Move America Forward folks will be there, as well as many California Free Republic members.

That last picture is interesting- the ADT sign shows they are aware they need store security; yet they don’t seem to think our country needs the security provided by the Military- amazing stupidity.

Well, The Emeryville police are escorting the people gathering there to come to Berkeley Saturday out of town. In this case, a positive thing.

So maybe they are patriotic.

On a side note, the whole Berkeley Fire Dept supports the Marines, Troops and the Recruiting Office.

One of the bay area towns close to Berkeley has made a declaration condemning the Berkeley City Council and the mayor for their un-patriotic actions. I think it is San Pablo

Red, White and Blue Rolls Over Berkeley


Eagles Up Leads Effort to Show Support for 'Lightning Rod" Marine Office


BERKELEY- Grassroots group Eagles Up will muster Saturday in Berkeley to pushback against the anti-American antics of the City of Berkeley and its anti-military minions, while showing overwhelming support for U.S. Marines.


Hundreds of patriots on motorcycles are expected to roar into town from around the western United States, while other true Americans roll into Berkeley to stand with the bikers at the Marine Recruiting center on Shattuck Avenue.


"We expect a massive crowd to send a message to the city of Berkeley, Code Pink and any other anti-military group that Americans are sick and tired of their hateful, dangerous behavior," said Doug Lyvere, Eagles Up (website: www.EaglesUp.us) organizer.


Melanie Morgan, popular radio personality and chairwoman of Move America Forward (website: www.MoveAmericaForward.org) and Catherine Moy, MAF's executive director, will address the crowd assembled Saturday to show support for the Marine Corps officer selection office that "peace" protesters have attacked. Move America Forward is the nation's largest pro-troop organization and has been on the frontlines against the anti-war crowds harassing our Marines in Berkeley.


"We encourage all American patriots to stand with Eagles Up and the Marines," Morgan said. "I hope to see Move America Forward's supporters at the muster to show our love and support for our troops."


Eagles Up led a march last week in the nation's Capitol to counter demonstrations planned by antiwar groups.


Radical group Code Pink has protested at the Marines office since at least October, when MAF first staged a counter-protest. On January 29th, the Berkeley City Council gave Code Pink a free regular event permit, sound permit and reserved parking for their protests. The City Council also called the Marines "uninvited" "Intruders" and has refused to apologize for the slander.


The mayor has expressed a willingness to extend similar rights to other organizations, but only for recurring protests of the Marine office. Move America Forward's request for similar rights to protest the city council were denied, and EaglesUp is paying for the permits for Saturday's events.


Many patriotic motorcycle groups are expected to attend and stage formal rides to and from the event, which will feature speakers at noon.


WHO: EaglesUp, Patriot Guard, MAF's Melanie Morgan, Catherine Moy, and an assembled crowd

WHAT: A patriotic rally with prominent speakers

WHEN: This Saturday 3/22/08 with a crowd starting to form around 10 a.m. and speakers at noon

WHERE: the Marine officer selection office at 64 Shattuck Square in Berkeley

WHY: to support the Marines and their right to operate in Berkeley


http://www.eaglesup.us  -  Where there is no offense, there is no effect.
 
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;  they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Subject: Anti-War Protestors Close Another Recruiting Center

  It's the kind of scene you'd expect to see in a foreign land where there was great hostility towards America, but instead it actually happened right here in the United States:  a military office is forced to close its doors - security personnel stationed at the gated entrance - to protect the facility from angry demonstrators.

  On Wednesday, militant anti-war radicals managed to close the Marine Recruiting Office in Berkeley, CA yet again... it's happened so many times that we've lost count of the number of days that the office has been forced to shut down in the face of anti-military protests.

  ABC-San Francisco covered the story, and they included the response by Move America Forward's Melanie Morgan.  Melanie explained that MAF has made the strategic decision to avoid large pro-troop events in front of the beleaguered recruiting office, because we don't wish to add to the chaos or cause further disruption to the important work of the recruiters there.
 
  Instead, we at Move America Forward will continue to focus our street demonstrations outside the offices of the Berkeley City Council, who called upon citizens to "impede" the work of military recruiters - a resolution that they have refused to rescind.
 
WATCH THE ABC REPORT HERE:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrvzGdELaCc
 
You can help us keep up our pushback, including the airing of this television ad that's been on the airwaves nationwide:
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMEWflz-L8I&
 

When I watched the interview in the ABC link above, it seemed to convey that MAF would not counter-protest when the anti-American crazies stage an event in front of a Military Recruiting Office in order to not incense the mentally deficient crazies to more foaming at the mouth spewing.

I do believe the office could be normally closed on Saturdays, but I don't know.

If it is open, the rally tomorrow should make it easier for people to go in and enlist.

This is one of several offices in the Bay Area, and sometimes it is closed on a normal business day as the recruiters are at another office.

Thanks for the PING, Syncro.


The Berkeley City Council is only charitable toward groups protesting the Marine OSO. Troop Support groups are out of the question in their biased anti-war/anti-military approach.

Out of curiosity, what is the cost of the permits in Berkeley? Can you insert a "Pay Pal" button for donations in this thread? It might generate funding from supporters who can't be there.

I'm thrilled to know that some of our MCL members plan to be there. There will also be some bikers who learned of the Rally from the sign posted in our store window. Watch for MO tags. :)

Take lots of pictures! Wish I could be there to stand with all of you, and I'll be there in spirit.

How true.

For those that aren't familiar with the term Marine OSO, it stands for Marine Corps Officer Selection Office, also referred to as the Marine Recruiting Office.

I have seen several posters here and other boards ask why do they have an office in Berkeley, filled with commies, eviromentalwacos and America hating hippies.

It's because they recruit from those going to UC Berkeley...and any others who happen to drop by. A lot of people think there can be no good found in a town like Berkeley, and a school like UC Berkeley, but the Marine are smarter than than...

They also recruit at the local Berkeley High School.

More on that when I update the thread I started Wed about the pinko commie 5 year thingie.

I'm thrilled to know that some of our MCL members plan to be there. There will also be some bikers who learned of the Rally from the sign posted in our store window. Watch for MO tags. :)

Now that's cool, Brat!

Thanks for all you do to make these events so much better.

I do like to make things clear so for those that do not know MCL stands for Marine Corps League, a great reference site for all things Marine.

As far as donations are concerned, you might click on the Eagles Up! West link at the bottom of the article posted at the top of this thread. It will get you to email to Eagles Up and you may find a way to donate there.

Free Republic, because of it's structure and nature, I don't believe would be able to allow a paypal button on a thread to donate to another organization.

I met a female Marine Staff Sargent last year who was engaged to a Marine who was a recruiter in Berkeley at the time (he may have since been transferred). She was just an amazing woman. During our conversation I said that it must be a very difficult job to recruit out of Berkeley, your fiance must be some guy. She said, “Yes he is. Soft spoken, even tempered, calm, and tough as nails.” She told me that occasionally while passing out cards he would have a Berkeley punk toss the card on the ground in front of him, to which he would say, very calmly, “Pick that up and hand it back to me.” She said smiling, “They always do, and if you saw my fiance you would know why!” We both laughed.

She also said you would be surprised by the quality of the recruits from the area, which is very high. Maybe the good ones are few and far between but they are more sold out and better Marines because they overcome so much by living in that environment.

Thanks for that info.

Capt. Lund who is the recruiter in Berkeley now is an awesome guy too.

I met him a week ago just as he was closing up shop.

Earlier that day when he stepped out to get something to eat, the loony leftists had plastered the windows with notes and little signs with their standard childish slogans on them.

The cops outside told me about that, and how when he came back he ripped them all down.

There is a video on U tube of him doing that.

What I wondered, but didn't think to ask the cops “guarding” the office, why they allowed the pinko sicko’s to vandalize his office, a Federal office at that.

In their defense, the cops there that day were nice guys doing their job just fine otherwise.

That was the day that two pinkos got arrested for vandalizing the inside of the office (well actually for not leaving when instructed to by the police) later when he went into one of the back offices for a minute.

Marines rock.

I just got home and heard Melanie Morgan talking to Brian Sussman on his show on KSFO.

She did a good plug for tomorrow's Support The Troops Rally.

A couple of things that made me grin were some phrases that I think she has coined.

She referred to the code pink, WCW, ANSWER etc traitors as loony leftists, and Cross Dressing Punks in Pink! The CD Pee Pee’s LOL. (I added the acronym)

She mentioned that info is at eaglesup.us and that many PGR and other bikers are gathering in Emeryville to convoy to the rally site.

The event begins I believe at 10:00 AM, with the speakers starting at Noon.

Drango, see you there!

500 motorcyclists to back Marines

BERKELEY — About 500 motorcyclists are expected to converge on the U.S. Marine recruiting center today to support the Marines who have been the target of protests by many anti-war groups for several months.

A group called Eagles Up will gather in Emeryville this morning and buy food, water, gas and other supplies needed for the day. They will keep their receipts and on Monday event organizer Doug Lyvere will present the stack to the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce, he said.

The idea is to penalize Berkeley financially for its recent anti-military vote. On Jan. 29, the council called the military recruiting center “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.”

Amid heavy criticism and threats by Republican lawmakers to withdraw federal funding, council members later moderated their position saying they oppose the war in Iraq but support the troops. Still, they refused to apologize.

Lyvere said they want to send a message of support for U.S. Marines.

“We expect a massive crowd to send a message to the city of Berkeley, CodePink and any other anti-military group that Americans are sick and tired of their hateful, dangerous behavior,” said Doug Lyvere, Eagles Up organizer. People will come from all over the state and beyond, organizers said.

The group is expected to be at the center from about 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Melanie Morgan, chairwoman of Move America Forward, and Catherine Moy, Move America Forward’s executive director, will address the crowd

about noon.

The Marine recruiting center at 64 Shattuck Square has been the site of anti-military protests from CodePink and the World Can’t Wait: Drive Out the Bush Regime and other groups for about six months. The Council gave CodePink a free regular event permit, sound permit and reserved parking for their weekly protests.

Mayor Tom Bates has offered to extend similar rights to other organizations doing recurring protests of the Marine office.

Due to family obligations (and it is blessing not burden), I will be unable to attend today. But know this event in Berkeley today has been prayed for in the FR thread below and in my personal prayer times since Doug sent out the first email several weeks ago. With the action in Berkeley especially in mind the Lord had me post a new prayer this mornig. In addition, throughout the day I will continue to cover this in worship and prayer from the homefront. By the way, I also had the privilege of meeting Captain Lund back in October when a friend and I went behind Code Pink lines and without wasting our time engaging them, we simply took gifts into the recruiting station. As only God could have set it up (and in direct answer to my friends’ prayers) one of the SF television news crews was filming an interview with Lund and then covered our delivery of the gifts on the nightly news showing the Marines DO have supporters! Lund is a great man and the article he wrote the following week superbly written. He and his family are in my prayers as well.

30%?”

Minus 5% is probably better. Talk about spitting on your own. These people are truly ignorant. They probably never had to work for a thing in their lives—they’re takers and complainers.

As a grandmother I should know better but it would be very difficult for me to keep from throwing something at these people. Thank God there are patriots ready to stand up to them. They would sell out our country in a minute—I wouldn’t trust any of them.

Well, that was cool - I couldn’t stay all day, but I was there for about two hours today. I took a picture or two and I’ll be putting together one of my little reports later today. I’ll post the link when it’s ready.

I wouldn’t want to hazzard a guess as to the count but many hundreds (not counting the four from code pink).

Thank you very much for the wonderful report!

I will print it and take it to my local Florida recruiting office this week.

Thank you to everyone who participated on behalf of all patriotic Americans!
