We Are Not Your Soldiers Tour: Hitting SF Bay Area and UC Santa Barbara this Week

From We are Not Your Soldiers!

On May 5th, the tour will be going in to the high schools in the Bay Area.  Friday May 7 at 7:00pm, we will be at the Multi-Cultural Center-Theater on the Campus of UCSB.  Don’t miss this! The We Are Not Your Soldiers Tour, a project of the World Can’t Wait, is not your typical counter recruiting presentation.
 
World Can’t Wait Activists and Iraq war veterans have teamed up to present the reality of ongoing wars of occupation, and the need for a resistance movement led by young people that can spark and inspire a much needed and more determined anti-war movement. The future of the young and the future of the people of the world are intertwined as we all hang in the balance.
 
Collateral Murder?

It’s not an aberration.

It’s not acceptable.
 
This whole war is illegal and immoral!

He publicly refused activation and deployment to Iraq from the IRR in ‘08 and won a victory for resisters when the military discharged him under honorable conditions as a result.
