First off, let me take a quick minute to point out that as of today, Thursday, January 11, the list of sponsoring organizations has grown from 94 to 97.

Readers of "Fire on the Mountain" may also be interested to know some of the history of POP's anti-war activities, which probably began three years ago when our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event in Newark began with a sit-in at the intersection of Broad & Market. This crossroads is the historic center of downtown Newark, NJ. It is also interesting to note that this was quite probably the first ever municipal sit-in in Newark's history.

The People's Organization for Progress has held counter-recruitment activities in East Orange, Elizabeth, Newark and a variety of other locations throughout the state. But our Plainfield branch pickets the so-called "Military Career Center" on Front Street as a regular monthly campaign.
