US Terrorism In Haiti & Iraq

WHEN: 7 pm, Wednesday, June 2, 2004

WHERE: Genesis House, 6018 Delmar, just east of Skinker

As the US news media focus on the outrageous torture of Iraqi prisoners by US military and mercenaries, they sidestep the primary purpose of the war: to enable global corporations to plunder oil.

Thousands of US Vietnam War vets know that soldiers returning from Iraq will suffer a similar postwar trauma, but the effects of a new poison will be even more persistant than Agent Orange. "Depleted" uranium (DU), used extensively in Iraq, will damage both soldiers and civilians for generations to come.

In Haiti, after the February 29 overthrow of democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide by "rebels," who many think were armed by the US, terror and human rights violations appear to be escalating.

Torture in Iraq and terror in Haiti are results of a US foreign policy that sponsors death squads, supports brutal regimes, and wages unnecessary wars. It requires as strongly an organized opposition today as did Vietnam decades ago.

The panel will include:

Harold Compere, President, Concerned Haitians and Friends; exploring historical struggles of Haiti to be free of imperial domination

Betsy Reznicek, Instead of War coalition; update on oppositionto the War for Iraqi Oil.

Dawn Rubbert, St. Louis Friends; how conscientious objectors are resisting war propaganda.

Willie Marshall, Vietnam War era veteran; what the Vietnam War meant to Black veterans and what veterans can expect today.
