Local Reporters in Iraq: Dispatches from the Ground
Fri Feb 6 2004
Local Reporters in Iraq
Upcoming event: 3/12: From Iraq to Palestine: Making the Connections in San Francisco.
Author and peace activist Dana Visalli gave a reportback on March 5th about his trip to Iraq.
Local Bay Area independent reporters Rob Eshelman, David Martinez, and Tristan have recently been in Iraq and have been sending home dispatches of life on the ground in that ravaged country. With the climate in US-occupied Iraq becoming increasingly hostile for journalists and restrictions tightening on media access, it is more and more important that independent journalists be allowed to report on what they see and experience. Especially when it comes to accounts from soldiers overseas who are growing weary of a war they do not understand and risking their lives for freedoms they don't necessarily have.
