"Winter Soldier" event in Providence tomorrow

This from the RI Community Coalition for Peace:

Beneficent Church in Providence to bring the “Winter Soldier” testimony to Rhode Island. From March 13 thru 16, in Silver Springs, MD,  members of  Iraq Veterans Against the War(IVAW) spoke publicly and candidly of their service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although this remarkable testimony was typically ignored by the mainstream media, two RI video journalists, Paul Hubbard and Robert Malin, have produced a DVD that captures the spirit of the Winter Soldier event and allows voices of veterans to be heard.


The forum will begin with some background remarks from the producers. The 75 minute video of the Winter Soldier Testimony will then be shown followed by a question and answer period. The testimony has been conscientiously vetted for accuracy by the IVAW. The public is, however, cautioned that this testimony deals with the realities of these wars, not the complacent denial so prevalent in the usual reporting. 


All are welcome to then stay for good conversation and socializing over pot luck dinner fare. This event has been organized by the Rhode Island Spring Mobilization Committee.  Endorsers of this event include: the American Friends Service Committee(SENE), the Rhode Island Community Coalition for Peace, MoveOn(East Bay), the International Socialist Organization, Green Party of RI, the Progressive Democrats of America, the Workers International League, and the East Bay Citizens for Peace.
