A report back from
WINTER SOLDIER
Troops Say No to War!

In 1971, Vietnam Veterans Against the War gathered 100 soldiers to testify at the Winter Soldier hearings, condemning the US war in Vietnam. From March 13th-16th of this year, Winter Soldier hearings are again being organized, this time by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). Over 200 veterans and active-duty troops will be recounting the injustices they witnessed, or were asked to carry out, at the hands of the US military and its contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the occupation of Iraq drags into its fifth year, the Winter
Soldier hearings are a historic opportunity to support troops who are bravely exposing the lies used to justify continued occupation.

Come see footage from the testimony, hear a report back from IVAW member PHILL ALIFF and bring a donation for IVAW!
