Boston: May 31, 2010:
Veterans for Peace, Military Families Speakout, Iraq Veterans Against the War, AFSC,and members of the Iraqi community gathered on this Memorial Day to protest the US wars on Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
Speakers related in solemn words the tragedy of lost American, Iraqi, and Afghani lives-also how the wars have taken a toll on the mental and physical health of returning veterans.
Several Iraqi refugees spoke of how the US war there has devastated their country and how the US occupation is not welcome in Iraq.
The event concluded with a ceremony in which the names of Massachusetts soldiers and Iraqis and Afghanis killed were read aloud, and participants tossed a flower in the harbor for each name read.
