Online - VFP 2020 Convention

Workshop: Full Spectrum Counter-Recruitment


The Full Spectrum Counter-Recruitment workshop was produced for the 2020 Veterans for Peace National Convention and examined efforts to demilitarize public schools and end the flow of new warriors by modernizing counter-recruitment efforts to oppose military tactics to use digital and online gaming platforms to reach kids. This document is available as a public resource.


The Pentagon, in this COVID moment, cannot send military recruiters to schools so they are deploying military ESports Teams to engage young people in online competitive gaming and using it as a platform for military recruiting, and it is growing.
Find out what is going on and how activists are pushing back in this workshop for the VFP 2020 Convention called, Full Spectrum Counter-Recruitment.
