Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan
09 Mar 2008
Modified: 12 Mar 2008
From March 13-16th, U.S. veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan will testify to what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground in these occupations. The four-day event will bring together veterans from across the country to testify about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan - and present video and photographic evidence. In addition, there will be panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and other specialists to give context to the testimony. These panels will cover everything from the history of the GI resistance movement to the fight for veterans' health benefits and support.

PUBLIC AIRING IN BOSTON: March 14, UMass, Campus Center 3rd Floor, 3 Point Lounge, 9:00am - 12:00am; and March 15, Harvard Square in Cambridge at the First Parish Church from 10:00 am through 6:00 p.m.
