We will mark the exit of US combat troops from Iraq and the impact of 30 years of war and sanctions. There will be a toll-free call-in number available. Event speakers include: Kathy Kelly, Raed Jarrar, Celeste Zappala, Abdulla Al-Obeidi, Mary Trotochaud, and Rick McDowell.
Thank you for standing with AFSC and the Wage Peace campaign in 2011!
There are many of you who have worked for years to insure that there would be no permanent US military bases in Iraq and that US troops would leave.
Congratulations, yesterday the last US combat troops deployed out of Iraq.
One year after President Bush's announcement of "mission accomplished" in Iraq, we find ourselves in a deeper hole than ever. The much-promised transfer of power is less and less certain, security is nonexistent, basic services remain unmet, and the exercise of unilateral U.S. power threatens to foil much-needed international involvement.
