We need volunteers to help with different aspects of this program.
We want to have people leafleting in Harvard Square and directing people
towards this event or help out in other capacities.
You can put in an hour of leafleting and then come to the program for a
while. Contact Paul at the number below to volunteer
On Saturday, March 15, 2008, local antiwar organizations are gathering
to watch the Winter Soldier testimonies--"Eyewitness Accounts of the
Occupations"--broadcast live from Washington, D.C. by Iraq Veterans
Against the War.
Coupling the viewing with ongoing organizing, antiwar organizations
are inviting members of the public to attend a public screening of the
testimony in Cambridge at the First Parish Church in Harvard Square,
which is across the street from the Harvard Square Theater.
The screening begins at 10:00 a.m. and runs all day through 6:00 p.m.
Local antiwar activists, veterans and community organizations will
have an opportunity to share their materials and network with one
another and plan future antiwar activities.
More information about the Winter Soldier testimonies may be obtained
from http:www.ivaw.org/wintersoldier. For information about local
organizing, please contact Paul Shannon at the American Friends
Service Committee, 617-497-5273.
