SAN FRANCISCO (Dec 9, 2006) - Over a hundred military veterans, military family members, and supporters join Iraq War-era veterans in San Francisco to support “GI rights and resistance” to an unjust, endless war. The event, organized by Courage to Resist, with the support of Iraq Veterans Against the War, Veterans for Peace, and many other groups, was only one of dozens of similiar events across the country this weekend to gather support for military objectors.
