G. I. Resister Speaks Out!

G.I. Resister speaks out! Monday, April 11th @ 6:30 The Community Church 28 East 35th Street between Park and Madison Aves. Free! or donation. Presentation on military recruiting and service, draft, conscientious objection, and resistance Featuring Jeff Paterson, a former Marine Corporal who was the first publicly known Gulf War resister. After holding a press conference to protest the coming war in August 1990, Jeff sat on the runway to resist deployment to the Middle East. One hundred other military resisters would eventually be imprisoned for their outspoken opposition to the war. Today, Jeff is a national staff member of Not in Our Name based in Oakland, California and is working to build a movement of support for the growing number of military objectors to the current ongoing unjust war and occupation of Iraq. Presentation to be followed by question and answer discussion. For more info call Not In Our Name 212*760*1722 or info@notinourname.net www.nyc.notinourname.net http://www.nyc.notinourname.net
