‘Winter Soldier’ Arrives ~ Rally with Soldiers who Fought in Iraq, Afghanistan

 Iraq Veterans Against War (IVAW) held a 40-hour talk rally, “Winter Soldier,” to hear from veterans about war and their conscientious testimonials to the world in March 2008. The media organizations, however, have not reported on it because of the seriousness of the testimonies. The testimonials of veterans called, “Winter Soldier,” is to be published in Japanese. We are planning a Japan tour of the testimonials by veterans of Iraqi and Afghan wars from Sept. 16 through 23. We will have Adam Kokesh (See photo), who appeared in a documentary film, “Winter Soldier” (Directed by Hisakazu Tabo), with us for the event. Kokesh is to speak about strategies they used in Fallujah. This will be a good chance for Japanese public to directly hear the soldiers’ first-hand stories about what really went on during Iraq/Afghan war. (By Katsuko Katada)
