Support War Resisters
|Resister James Burmeister|
|Sir, No Sir! |
Sir! No Sir! is a powerful film that shows how GI resistance to the Vietnam War infested the entire armed services, flourishing in army stockades, navy brigs, in the dingy towns that surround military bases, and throughout the battlefields of Vietnam. Organize an event to screen this film in your community!
|Army Specialist Mark Wilkerson|
On Thursday, August 31st, Army Specialist Mark Wilkerson joined the growing numbers of war resisters speaking out about their refusal to participate in the illegal war in Iraq. With the support of CODEPINK, after being AWOL for a year and a half, Mark issued a public statement from Camp Casey and then turned himself in to Fort Hood to face the consequences of his courageous decision.

|Support Suzanne Swift!|
Army Specialist Suzanne Swift refused to return to Iraq because of the extreme duress she suffered in the form of sexual harassment at the hands of three of her commanding officers.
