Anti-War High School Kids Disrupt School Board Meeting

A dramatic anti-military recruitment rally unfolded at the Seattle School Board meeting on Wednesday night.

The meeting was interrupted by dozens of students who loudly chanted anti-recruitment phrases, including "recruiters out." Several of the students, in an attempt to portray dead soldiers, sprawled out on the floor.

The school board refused to meet amid the disruption and demanded the kids move back.

"It's OK, it's OK. I want to say this is what democracy looks like. But this is not what a school board meeting looks like," said board member Darlene Flynn.

After an unheeded final warning, board members left behind the rowdy crowd and moved the meeting to a quiet room, angering the students.
