iwt_dates2.pngThe People's Tribunal on the Iraq War: After 14 years of costly war based on lies, it’s time for truth and accountability. The People's Tribunal on the Iraq War is meant to unify the global anti-war/peace movements with other justice movements by uplifting testimonies of the costs of this war—and war itself. The Tribunal brings the lies that created the war on Iraq into public awareness, while demanding Obama act on them. It builds and inspires the anti-war movement that we will need after the inauguration of the next administration in 2017. It will be a tool that all groups can use to build, inspire, and enliven their organizations and communities.
