A Conversation with Iraq Veteran Josh Stieber

Josh Steiber is a combat veteran who became a Conscientious Objector after
being part of the recent "surge" in Iraq. To spread his message of
cooperation and understanding instead of military occupation, Josh began a
peace walk that departed from Washington, D.C. on Memorial Day. He is now
traveling across the country -- by foot, bike, and bus -- to speak with
communities everywhere about the reality of the war, his experience as a
soldier, and the responsibilities we all have to those who are affected by
the U.S. occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 30th, to welcome Josh as he comes to
Cambridge and to hear his stories about his experience of war and his
journey of peace. His talk promises to take us beyond the sound-bites
about the wars and the surge, to engage us in a timely, thoughtful
conversation about issues that are increasingly overlooked in the media.

Refreshments and an informal reception will be from 6:00 to 6:30, and the
presentation and discussion with Josh will begin at 6:30. The event is
free and open to the public -- all are welcome. RSVPs are appreciated, but
not required: members at masspeaceaction.org or 617.354.2169.

Hope to see you there!

For Peace,
