The People’s Tribunal on the Iraq War – Live Stream Dec. 1 & 2

Code Pink:

The People’s Tribunal on the Iraq War: After 14 years of costly war based on lies, it’s time for truth and accountability. The People’s Tribunal on the Iraq War will unify the global anti-war/peace movements with other justice movements by uplifting testimonies of the costs of this war—and war itself. The Tribunal will bring the lies that created the war on Iraq into public awareness, while demanding Obama act on them.

It will be a tool that all groups can use to build, inspire, and enliven their organizations and communities. Testifiers Day One and Two.
