Winter Soldiers against War and Racial Injustice: Vietnam, Iraq
March 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST
This webinar commemorates the Winter Soldier Investigation organized by Vietnam Veterans Against the War 50 years ago, as well as similar hearings planned by Iraq Veterans Against the War 37 years later.
Veterans and participants in those investigations and recently discharged members of the military will make presentations on the atrocities of war and the racial implications of U.S. military policy. The event will emphasize the relevance of these issues to continuing struggles against war and racial injustice today.
The program will feature three 30-minute panels focused on the Vietnam War, the occupation of Iraq, and the current role of National Guard troops in relation to racial justice issues.
