WSFrom March 13-16th, U.S. veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan testified, at the National Labor College just outside of Washington, D.C., to what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground in these occupations.

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

Details and additional video at ivaw.org & www.democracynow.org.

Thank you for your interest in
Eugene PeaceWorks! 

Through the efforts of dedicated volunteers  and members like  you, our organization has been an active presence in the community since its founding in 1981. For twenty-five years, we have  been promoting local and  international cooperation in the Peace  and Justice Movement. We support a commitment to world peace, social and environmental justice issues through nonviolent  grassroots action, education and mutual empowerment to show that  peace works. We provide office space and community organizing resources to community members, promote nonviolent strategies for direct action, and campaign against militarism and its use to preserve and promote other institutions of social and environmental oppression. Whether helping to make Eugene a nuclear free zone or fighting to end corporate greed, EPW has and will continue to work for justice locally and abroad.

GET INVOLVED!

Eugene PeaceWorks is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit. This allows us to maintain local control over what we do. So that we may continue our tradition of promoting and taking action for peace, justice and a clean earth, we need your generous support more than ever. Your continued donations and volunteer time are the foundation of the grassroots movement. Thank you again for your support over the years.
