IVAW "Winter Soldier" Conference: Iraq vets tell us what it’s really like

by Matt

Video of the Winter Soldier conference, held March 13-16 in DC, has been uploaded to the Iraq Veterans Against the War website. From the site:

Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan will feature testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground.

The four-day event will bring together veterans from across the country to testify about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan – and present video and photographic evidence. In addition, there will be panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and other specialists to give context to the testimony. These panels will cover everything from the history of the GI resistance movement to the fight for veterans’ health benefits and support.

There are also blogs, and articles, but I think the video is most interesting. Highlights will no doubt follow in upcoming posts.
