Iraq: 9 Years of War and Activism. Is It Over?

March 19, 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Print Friendly

We’ll hear stories from lots of actors in the anti-Iraq occupation movement – activists, veterans, artists and more- about how the past nine years impacted them and their lives, and the lasting lessons for us as a movement. If you’re interested on telling a story, please see guidelines and sign up here.

See photos and videos from Feb 15, 2003, the largest mobilization that the world had ever seen, and other historic protests against the continued occupation. Also hear short panels discussing:

  • Is the occupation truly over? What are we leaving behind?
  • What do Iraqis and US veterans want from us?
  • How is the current posturing around Iran similar and different from the buildup to Iraq?
  • What has the impact of 9 years of organizing been on the movement, the individuals who were a part of it and our ongoing collective struggles?
