The We Are Not Your Soldiers tour is not your typical classroom counter-recruiting presentation. The World Can’t Wait movement has teamed up with military veterans and military family members to bring the truth to high school & college students about military recruiters and what they are really recruiting for. This tour exposes the realities of the war, including vets talking about their own on-the-ground experience in rounding up people, rape and the consistent use of torture on innocent people. This tour exposes the lies of recruiters and stirs up debate & critical thinking amongst a whole new generation of young people. World Can’t Wait organizers open up discussion on why the War on Terror is really a brutal war for empire. Although this tour has the potential to convince a lot of young people to not join up, it is attempting to go further than that. It is setting out to unleash a whole culture of resistance to military recruiting as a key part of stopping these wars.
