National Radio Project was contacted by the U.S. Army in December, after airing an interview with Lieutenant Ehren Watada, the first US Army officer to refuse to return to Iraq on the grounds that it is an illegal war. Lt. Watada faces a Court Martial and possibly 6 years behind bars for speaking out and setting an example for members of the armed forces.

Meet and support Sarah Olson and Dahr Jamail, independent journalists who object to being ordered to testify against Lt. Watada.

Come dance in celebration of Freedom of Speech! Support the Oakland-based National Radio Project -- one of the few media outlets speaking truth to power. Our weekly program Making Contact, is heard locally on KPFA 94.1 FM on Fridays at 1:30pm and 200 radio stations around the country.

It's just $10 at the door - more if you can, less if you can't!
