SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - Upholding its famously liberal leanings, the Santa Cruz City Council has became one of the first municipal bodies in the nation to pass a resolution denouncing any pending military strike on Iraq led by U.S. forces.
Tuesday's 6-0 council vote even outpaced its liberal neighbor, Berkeley. Last year, Berkeley passed a resolution condemning the bombing of Afghanistan, but the city has yet to address the intensifying situation in Iraq.
Santa Cruz Congressman Sam Farr says that e-mail from his constituents is running more than 500 to 1 against a U.S. invasion.
Meanwhile, a Berkeley study just found that teenagers are more conservative on issues such as school prayer and abortion than their parents.
