Matthew Capri | Friends,
Please excuse repeat postings. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of committed activists finding out more about G.I. antiwar sentiment and activism.

Soldiers who organized against the war while serving in Iraq will be speaking at the Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Sq. South, NYC) on November 17th 2006 at 7 p.m. about their how they organized an anti-war group while deployed and how civilians and veterans can support the GI movement here at home.

We want you to hear about the work that many people are doing to catalyze and build GI resistance to this war.

For the Military Project Organizing Committee,
Matthew Capri

PS: Please forward this meeting notice widely--this is a free public meeting and all are welcome to attend.
