COME TO A TOWN HALL MEETING!

A special presentation by Ramsey Clark on fifteen years of war waged by the United States against the people of Iraq. January 17 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the beginning of Desert Storm. Since that time, under administrations from both major parties, the U.S. has waged continual war against Iraq. Ramsey Clark, founder of the International Action Center, has visited Iraq several times and personally witnessed the devastation caused by bombing, sanctions, and occupation. Join us to hear plans to end the illegal occupation of Iraq and hold those responsible accountable for their crimes.
