TESTIFY! People’s Tribunal on the Iraq War, Dec. 1-2

UFPJ is asking our activists and member groups to submit testimony on the People’s Tribunal on the Iraq War.iraq-tribunal-big 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 build and inspire the anti-war movement that we will need after the inauguration of the next administration in 2017. It will be a tool that all groups can use to build, inspire, and enliven their organizations and communities. We invite you to join us on December 1st and 2nd in this historic event as an endorser, testifier, and/or coalition member. The Tribunal is a unification of movements and struggles that have worked for decades to bring an end to war. It is for building and re-invigorating the Anti-War Movement we need to stand up to war and militarism in 2017. It is a call to President Obama to create a Commission on Truth & Accountability on the Iraq War. The tribunal will be live streamed online, worldwide. On Day 1, testimony will be delivered on the lies that misled the world into war. On Day 2 testimony will be delivered on the ongoing costs of this war. Participants will be able to testify in person, through video, live stream, or through art submissions. We have over 80 testifiers including academics, politicians, veterans, activists, ex-military, and ex-intelligence officers. There will also Iraqis who will offer testimony, as well as family members of soldiers who either died in combat, or took their own lives. Please, join this effort. Your voice, presence, and leadership in this initiative are so important. Here are two recent media pieces announcing the tribunal and the call for an inter-sectional Anti War Movement:
