IRAQ WAR VET AND TWO IRAQ
WAR RESISTERS SPEAK OUT
San Rafael High School Auditorium
Come hear Iraq war veteran Aidan Delgado and two Iraq War resisters —Aimee Allison and Pablo Paredes (pictured above) — tell their stories: how they were recruited, the reasons they enlisted, their experiences at boot camp, and what it was like at Abu Ghraib prison. Aidan will be coming from Florida and Pablo will be coming from San Diego for this special program. Aimee Allison, a veteran of the first Gulf War, is running for Oakland City Council.
The vets will be joined by David Crawford, a student "Opt-Out" organizer at Tamalpais High School. Special performance featuring HIP HOP/SPOKEN WORD ARTIST - D.U.S.T.
