Independent journalist
Dahr Jamail

Presents his new book
Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches From an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq

As the occupation of Iraq unravels, the demand for independent reporting is growing. Since 2003, unembedded journalist Dahr Jamail has filed indispensable reports from Iraq that have made him this generation's chronicler of the unfolding disaster there. In these collected dispatches, Jamail presents never-before-published details of the siege of Fallujah and examines the origins of the Iraqi insurgency.

In addition to his time in Iraq, Jamail has also reported from Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan, writing for the Inter Press Service, Asia Times, and many other outlets. His reports have been published in The Nation, the Sunday Herald, the Guardian, Foreign Policy in Focus, and The Independent, among other publications. On radio as well as television, Jamail has reported for Democracy Now! and numerous other programs around the globe.

Copies of Beyond the Green Zone will be available for purchase and signing.

$7 - $15 suggested donation. Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

"Dahr Jamail does us a great service, by taking us past the lies of our political leaders, past the cowardice of the mainstream press, into the streets, the homes, the lives of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. He is a superb journalist." -Howard Zinn, author, A People’s History of the United States

"While so much reporting from Iraq has remained embedded and wrong, Dahr Jamail’s courageous truth-telling from the frontline has been a beacon." -John Pilger, journalist and author, Freedom Next Time
