IRAQ VETERANS AGAINST THE WAR-CHAPTER 44, Santa Cruz


Col. Ann Wright
Given the US State Department's Award for Heroism for her actions in evacuating civilians from civil war in Sierra Leon, Col. Wright put her career on the line when, on March 19, 2003, she resigned her State Department post in protest of the Bush Administration's planned invasion of Iraq. Since then she has picketed at Guantanamo, served on the international impeachment commission, and has been arrested numerous times for non-violent protest of the Bush administration's policies.
Recently she co-authored a book that, according to Daniel Ellsberg "should be leaked into the government." Dissent: Voices of Conscience brings us the words of government insiders who have spoken out against the War in Iraq. As Howard Zinn notes "it takes a special courage for men and women inside the government to speak out." Ann Wright has this special courage.
