Hosted by the New York City chapter of Veterans For Peace

Monday, May 31, 11am PDT

Remembering ALL Lives

Register here for this Zoom event.

What would Memorial Day look like if we commemorated all the victims of war, and not just the military fallen from our own country? What would it be like to honor all the dead and acknowledge all the destruction wrought around the world by U.S. military actions?

Join us to explore this theme, as we pair Americans, mostly military veterans, with speakers who have been on the receiving end of U.S. military aggression.

Cheyenne Arapaho Nation: Larry Bringing Good

Afghanistan: Nematullah Ahangosh, Basir Bita, Kathy Kelly, Danny Sjursen 

Iraq: Matthew Hoh, Lubna Mousa

Vietnam: Peggy Akers, Theresa Mei Chuc, Doug Rawlings

Japan: Susan Schnall, Kiyoko Takei, Masashi Takei 

Okinawa: Ken Mayers, Teiko Yohana Tursi

Korea: Soobok Kim, Stan Levin, Georgia Wever 

Palestine: Afaf Alnajjar, Miko Peled
