We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to end military recruitment
in all schools and colleges in the UK.

We are very concerned at the drive by the military to attempt to use
schools as recruiting grounds for the armed services. Given the terrible
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan we demand that the school authorities resist
pressure for increased military input in to our education. We do not
believe schools should be used to recruit to the military directly or
through recruiting agencies. We demand that no military force should be
allowed into any school at any time. If spokespeople for the military are
allowed in to our school we demand that all students are informed in
advance, have the right not to attend the event and that there should be a
right of reply from an anti war military parent or a speaker from the
anti-war movement.
