Drew Cameron (IVAW) added to speakers for Boston!

Just a quick note that Drew is coming to be part of the event tonight in Boston with Anthony and Howard Zinn. We just met him in Burlington two nights ago and he's dropping everything to get in a car and drive to meet us in Boston. Whenever a veteran speaks out against the war, it's adds a compelling note and we're super psyched that is going to happen in Boston. In Ithaca, one of the speakers, Michael Blake (also from Iraq Veterans Against the War), talked about how his CO told him to be prepared for Iraqi kids to come around unit begging for food and that they all (the soldiers) should make "beating sticks" to keep them away! Obviously, a very different "mission" from what they'd been told initially...
