/*Winter Soldier: Eye-Witness Accounts of the Occupations*/
*July 16: Hear and Support the Voices of Anti-War Veterans!*
This past spring, Iraq Veterans Against the War gathered in Washington
DC to give direct testimony about their war experiences and to disclose
the realities of U.S. war policy in a public investigation called “The
Winter Soldier Hearings.”
Their demand was clear:
“Bring All the Troops Home Now – and Take Care of Them When They Get Here!”
Now it is time for us to take this powerful testimony and make sure it
is seen far and wide in our communities, schools, churches and TV stations.
*Join us on Wednesday evening, July 16th:*
· to view some of the most powerful testimony given by the vets in
· to find out how you or your group can help amplify the voices of these
courageous soldiers and support their resistance,
· and to learn about the “Soldiers of Conscience Support Network” being
organized by IVAW and allies in the Boston area.
*7:00 PM on Wednesday, July 16th*
*Cambridge Friends Meeting House*
*9 Longfellow Park, Cambridge*
*(off of Brattle Street out of Harvard Square)*
