Winter Soldier Europe

USC4P&J-Rome supported the Winter Soldier Europe initiative held in Freiburg, Germany on March 14. Our fundraiser resulted in E. 235 to help offset the costs of the event. See below a press release from the organizers as well as a link to video of the testimony.

Iraq Veterans Against the War convenes Winter Soldier Europe before NATO summit

Testimony are available online
www.youtube.com/user/WinterSoldierEurope

Freiburg, Germany – About 150 people heard testimony from nine American, British, and German veterans in Freiburg, Germany, on Saturday about the military members’ experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Entitled Winter Soldier Europe, the hearing was held just weeks before NATO’s annual summit across the border in France, providing an alternative perspective to the politicians, generals and media pundits.

Coordinated by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), the soldiers told their own stories and experiences, including: Martin Webster, a former British soldier who served in Iraq, discussed how he has coped with post traumatic stress disorder and how he believes governments that send their troops to war need to provide adequate mental healthcare when the soldiers come home. Christian Neumann, an active-duty German soldier who served in Afghanistan, explained how NATO is more dangerous than helpful as an ally for Germany. Chris Arendt, a former Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, prison guard, spoke about the abuse and dehumanization of prisoners at Gitmo. Eddie Falcon, a former US airman who deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, talked about the treatment of Iraqis during his transport of prisoners, including blindfolding and strapping Iraqi civilians to the floor of the cargo compartment. “We heard the veterans tell their own captivating personal stories of military service in these two wars of occupation,” said Rudi Friedrich, one of the organizers. “It was illuminating to hear the many challenges and problems in the worlds’ militaries today direct from soldiers who lived it and now are speaking out for true change.” The event was named Winter Soldier to honor a similar gathering 30 years ago of veterans of the Vietnam War. Winter soldiers, according to American founding father Thomas Paine, are the people who stand up for the soul of their country, even in its darkest hours. Media can receive high quality audio and photos of the event as well as photos of the individual testifiers on request.

Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn Assad in Syria and al-Malaki in Iraq, and is now out of hand. Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise... Just Foreign Policy Iraqi Death Estimator
