with Jason Hurd of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW)
6pm Thursday November 1
Bingham 103, UNC-Chapel Hill
"[T]here is a direct correlation between the violence in Iraq and our presence there. ... I intend to do everything in my power to put an end to the massive suffering brought about by U.S. intervention in Iraq." - Jason Hurd, IVAW
Join us for an evening with Jason Hurd, president of the newly-formed Asheville chapter of IVAW. Jason served as an Army medic for 10 years – 4 years on active duty followed by 6 years in the Tennessee National Guard. He deployed to Iraq in November 2004, serving a year in central Baghdad with his unit from Bristol, Tennessee. Jason will share his experiences in occupied Iraq and explain why he is opposed to the war, what IVAW does, and how students can participate to help stop the occupation of Iraq. The presentation will be followed by questions and answers.
