Portland Winter Soldier

Airs on KBOO 90.7 FM: Friday, December 12th, 9am - 4pm

From the October 18th, 2008 event at the First Unitarian Church



Winter Soldier was first held in 1971, when veterans of the Vietnam War gathered in Washington DC to testify about the atrocities they had committed or witnessed during the war. Now, Iraq Veterans Against the War have resurrected the tradition by holding a number of Winter Soldier events, including here in Portland. Veterans testimonies, recorded in Portland in October, will be followed by a live forum with Iraq war vets and civilian victims of Occupation.
