Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan
UFPJ is committed to providing major support to Iraq Veterans Against the War and its Winter Soldier hearings
in Washington, DC, on March 13-16. We will help local groups plan
events that directly link to and amplify the Winter Soldier hearings,
where those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Iraqis
and Afghans, will tell the nation the real story of this war. Please keep checking back here and watch for emails for further details about the local actions supporting Winter Soldier. Coming very soon!
More about Winter Soldier (from the IVAW website):
"This spring, Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) is revealing the reality of the U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. In what will be history's largest gathering of U.S. veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Iraqi and Afghan survivors, eyewitnesses will share their experiences in a public investigation called Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan.
Winter Soldiers, according to founding father Thomas Paine, are those who stand up for the soul of their country, even in its darkest hours. With this spirit in mind, IVAW members are standing up to make their experiences available to all who are concerned about the direction of our country."
