Nan Levinson is a writer, journalist and professor at Tufts. Her book War is Not a Game tells the story of a new soldiers' antiwar movement. Drawing on stories, voices and ideas from a rousing band of military-related antiwar activists, the book gives an uncensored, grunt's-eye view of the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan, while conveying the dramatic struggles many soldiers face returning home.

Time is urgent -- people are marching
NO BOMBS! NO TROOPS! NO DRONES!
Despite spending a trillion dollars on the Iraq war from 2003 to 2009 that cost the lives of 4500 U.S. soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, and despite providing billions of dollars worth of training to the security forces of our brutal ally in Baghdad, Iraq faces the prospect of a horrible civil war.

March and Rally
April 9th, 2011
New York City and San Francisco
(Union Sq. at noon) (Time and place to be announced)
by Michael Borkson, Indymedia Boston
Boston, Mass. Dec. 16, 2010:
About 25 peace activists staged a picket and speakout in front of the JFK Federal Building in Boston to support anti-war veterans staging a mass civil disobedience in front of the White House in Wash. DC.
As a picket line paced the sidewalk under the watch of 2 Boston cops, speakers talked of the quagmire of the Afghan and Iraq wars-the cost in deaths of thousands of people, both civilian and military, as well as the destruction of social welfare and the economy at home.
Veterans and others are putting their bodies on the line for peace by holding a civil disobedience action in Washington, DC on December 16 to Stop These Wars.
Go to Washington, DC that day to support the veterans if you possibly can. For those who can't go to DC, there will be a solidarity action at the JFK Federal Building at noon.
Our slogans will be:
President Obama will be holding a rally this Saturday to campaign for candidates of the Democratic Party. This will be an important opportunity to campaign against the endless wars and occupations and in defense of human rights for all and an end to the Raids.
Gather out in front of the rally with signs and posters.
