         INVASIONS AND OCCUPATION ============================================

Dear UFPJ -

U.S. forces officially left Iraq in December of 2011 after over 20 years of  
U.S. invasions, military operations and occupation.  March 19th marked the  
10 year anniversary of the most recent U.S. invasion. What is the state of  
Iraq today? What is the condition of Iraqi society, infrastructure and  
economy? What is the United States doing in Iraq today and what role does the  
peace movement have in helping the people of Iraq heal their nation?    
This March 26, 2012 United for Peace and Justice is hosting a phone briefing  
with Antonia Juhasz and Ali Issa to look at these questions. Join us at 8:30  
PM ET for this important discussion.
