On June 22, U.S. Army First Lieutenant Ehren K. Watada became the first commissioned officer to publicly refuse deployment to the unlawful Iraq War and occupation.
Supporters nationwide are mounting a national day of action today, Tuesday, June 27. Larger mobilizations will be staged leading up to Lt. Watada's court martial.
Even before Lt. Watada refused to deploy, the military had already launched an investigation into his many speeches in opposition to the war.
Your support, including donations to Lt. Watada’s defense fund, are urgently needed today.
