Subject: Iraq: getting out

Kathy Kelly from Voices for Creative Nonviolence will be speaking at Cooper Union Wollman Auditorium on October 16 at 7:00 p.m. She will talk about the Iraqis displaced by the war in Iraq and why Iraqi citizens want the US military, including all its bases, out of  Iraq.  She will also talk about the expected consequences.

Kathy Kelly has been nominated for Noble Peace Prize on several occasions. She started Voices in the Wilderness in the early 1990s after Desert Storm.  She and her members brought medical aid to Iraqis and stayed on when the current war started. Voices in the Wilderness was found guilty of breaking US law for bringing medical aid to Iraq and ordered to pay $20,000 in fines.

This event is sponsored by Out Now (artist collective)
