An Eye Witness Account of the Occupation of Iraq by Medea Benjamin

Medea Benjamin, Founding Director of Global Exchange, and a leading activist in the peace movement, will speak about her experiences in Iraq, where she has traveled several times to establish the Occupation Watch International Center in Baghdad. The center monitors the military occupation forces and foreign corporations, hosts international delegations, and keeps the international community updated about the occupation forces' activities through a new website, http://www.occupationwatch.org. Medea most recently visited Iraq in early December accompanying a delegation of military families.
She is also the co-founder of Code Pink: Women for Peace, a women's group that has been organizing against the occupation of Iraq and pushing for a reorientation of budget priorities in the US to focus on health care, education and housing, not war.
