Event description:
Free, public talk and film screening with Chuck Wiley, the most senior U.S. military officer to become a war resister in Canada. Chuck was with the U.S. Navy for 17 years and deployed to Iraq on the USS Enterprise. In 2007, he refused to redeploy to Iraq and came to Canada as a war resister. He will share his compelling personal story of conscience. Plus there will also be a special screening of the NFB documentary "Breaking Ranks" about four U.S. soldiers seeking sanctuary in Canada. Chuck is on a tour of Nova Scotia to raise awareness of the plight of war resisters in Canada and to mark the 8th anniversary of the illegal war and occupation of Iraq and. Part of the national campaign to "LET THEM STAY". More information at www.resisters.ca
