War Resisters

Handmade Peace beret, available here.
As closely related berets & the military may be, so are berets and pacifists/conscientious objectors/war resisters. Somehow, people with a desire for non-violence and peace tend to gravitate toward the beret. That was true for the interbellum and still is these days, as the pictures below show.

Students at UC Santa Cruz successfully rallied to force military recruiters off of the campus. March 5, 2005.
Tomas of the Brown Berets spoke to the crowd and got them fired up.
