Additional Information on the Ruckus Society


Past Ruckus Society training programs included, among others:

(a) The Not Your Soldier Project: This counter-recruitment campaign was established during the early part of the Iraq War, to “[giv[e] youth the tools they need to stop the military invasion of their schools and their communities.” Condemning “the corporations that profit off of war,” the project was carried out in collaboration with the American Friends Service CommitteeCode Pink, the National Network Opposing Militarization of Youth, the National Youth and Student Peace Coalition, and the War Resisters League.

(b) The Jumpstart Ford Campaign: A joint venture with Global Exchange and the Rainforest Action Network, this program sought to break America of its “deadly addiction to oil.” Said the Ruckus Society: “We are demanding that Ford increase the average fuel efficiency of its fleet to 50 mpg by 2010 and that they reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2020.”
