Iraq: 9 Years of War and Activism. Is It Over?
On the 9th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, join us for an evening of reflection and looking forward.
We’ll hear stories from big and small actors in the anti-Iraq occupation movement about how the past nine years impacted them and their lives, and the lasting lessons for us as a movement.
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?
Date: Monday, March 19, 6:30-8:30
Location: Busboys and Poets, 14th and V St NW.
