Suzanne Swift Support Rally

Join us in support of Spc. Suzanne Swift, victim of sexual abuse during her time in the military.
Freed from the brig at Bangor, confined in the military until 2009.
Wednesday, Jan. 3rd
11:30 am
Bangor Naval Base
Ground Zero
16159 Clear Creek Rd
Poulsbo, Washington
Directions are available at www.gzcenter.org/directions-gz.htm

Specialist Suzanne Swift, after suffering sexual assault while deployed in Iraq, went AWOL to escape the commanding officers who exploited her. Currently, she is being held at the brig at Bangor Naval Base serving 30 days for going AWOL, while her perpetrators are free. For more information visit www.suzanneswift.org.

We welcome Spec. Swift's scheduled release on Wednesday, Januray 3rd and join the call for an immediate medical discharge with full benefits. We will gather at Ground Zero near the main gates of Bangor Naval Base and then line the streets with signs supporting Spec. Swift and other women soldiers as they face double danger in the military. Please remember that our message on January 3rd is about sexual assault in the military and support of Spec. Swift, not about the war.

This event is being organized by South Sound Project for Military Resistance and Justice. Please contact us at  suzanneswiftaction@yahoo.com or call (360)485-5745.
