Peter Laufer will be speaking and reading exerpts from his new book, Mission Rejected: Soldiers say no to war. Members of the GI Rights Hotline will also be on hand to talk about their work and how its related to the book and Mr. Laufers work.
Vietnam War resister and former NBC News correspondent Peter Laufer has won awards for his coverage of Americans in prisons overseas, migration, and Vietnam vets suffering post-traumatic stress disorder. He now turns his proven talents to the turmoil of U.S. troops confronting the Iraq War. Some have decided not to fight; others did but were so appalled by the experience that they refuse to return. Several of the trained warriors turned activists profiled in the book are local Santa Cruz residents, and Santa Cruz's GI Rights program at the Resource Center for Nonviolence figures prominently. Mission Rejected probes the universal issue of resistance to war by the men who chose to defend the nation. Check http://www.capitolabookcafe.com for more info or call 831-462-4415.
