Ryan Harvey & Iraq Veterans Against the War
"Operation Recovery Tour"

Riot-Folk's Ryan Harvey and organizers from Iraq Veterans Against the War and the Civilian-Soldier Alliance are touring the west coast together to raise awareness and promote support for the Operation Recovery campaign at fort Hood, Texas. More info below!

Ryan Harvey, a part of the Riot-Folk Collective, has been writing and performing in social justice activist circles for over 10 years. He is touring the United States and Europe this summer to release "Ordinary Heroes", a new CD dedicated to the life of Howard Zinn which explores contemporary political issues while emphasizing social movements in American history.

Ryan's songs can be downloaded for free at http://www.ryanharveymusic​.com.

Earlier this year Iraq Veterans Against the War deployed a team to gritty sun-baked Ft. Hood to begin a year long outreach drive and lay the groundwork for a fight to win service members and veterans right to heal. Since the teams arrival in May they have talked to hundreds of active duty
soldiers, conducted house visit after house visit, and begun to collect the testimony of Service Members that deal with these issues daily.

Why did IVAW deploy a team to the belly of the beast? Because, we know that by winning the right to heal at Ft. Hood we can win our rights across the country and in doing so cripple the militaries ability to continue the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. The military depends on the deployment of service members with traumas to continue the wars.

Now we are hitting the road traveling from Ft. Hood to Ft. Lewis to share the story of the struggles for GI Rights at Ft. Hood.
