UPRISE Tour in Cleveland Along with Amy Goodman



From Oct. 13-15th, the Counter Recruitment UPRISE tour cruised through Cleveland, giving us their all for three days: workshops, music, testimonies, friendship, knowledge.... Right now, the tour consists of Tom, an activist from Cleveland; Kate, a college campus counter recruitment activist from Santa Cruz; Ryan, a radical folk singer, educator, activist, and organizer; and Tariq, who served in the Air Force for four years, during which time he came politicized.
