Know Before You Go, 'Cause There's No Reset Button

Know Before You Go, 'Cause There's No Reset Button is a collaboration with the Ya-Ya Network (Youth Activists-Youth Allies), a youth of color-led antimilitarist organization based in NYC. Our leaflet breaks down the enlistment contract and life in the military and provides new stats about sexual assault in the military, racial disparities in becoming an officer, and stop-loss. Written to be accessible to everyone while providing the most important info for making a fully informed choice about joining the military, this leaflet will be a staple for counter-recruiters.

The Military is Not Just a Job, It's 8 Years of Your Life//¿Solo un empleo? No… ¡Son ocho años de tu vida!

 

The new 2016 edition of this resource is available now!

You’ve probably heard the ads and the recruiter’s sales pitch. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? All advertising does. But if military life doesn’t live up to the advertising, you can’t bring your enlistment agreement back to the recruiter for a refund. You are obligated to the military for a total of eight years, including time in the reserves when you could be recalled.

Women Conscientious Objectors

Conscientious objectors are generally seen as male - as are soldiers. This book breaks with this assumption. Women conscientiously object to military service and militarism, not only in countries that conscript women - such as Eritrea and Israel - but also in countries without conscription of women. In doing so, they redefine antimilitarism from a feminist perspective, opposing not only militarism, but also a form of antimilitarism that creates the male conscientious objector as the "hero" of antimilitarist struggle.
