Failing Iraq/Failing at Home
Despite growing public opposition, Congress is repeating the mistake they made before the Iraq war began: giving President Bush an $87 billion green light for a muddled, unwinnable policy. Facing deep budget cuts, deficits and unmet needs at home, Americans are angry about war profiteering by U.S. corporations in Iraq. Last week's victories in Congress and the UN will lead us deeper into the quagmire without a fundamental change of course.
The Cost of War
The purpose of The Cost of War is to highlight the economic cost of the war and demand that Congress shift war funding to support human needs here and real solution in Iraq and Afghanistan. The display features 10 seven-foot banners that explore the one day cost of war and how that money could be better spent on human needs.
