Celebrate People’s History/Iraq Veterans Against the War: Ten Years of Fighting for Peace and Justice is a portfolio project celebrating Iraq Veterans Against the War’s (IVAW) ten year history. IVAW was founded in July 2004 to give voice to the large number of active duty service members and veterans who were against the war, but were under various pressures to remain silent. Over the past ten years, IVAW members have spoken out and taken action to end the wars they served in and to transform the society that fostered those wars.
The portfolio features contributions from IVAW members, Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative members, along with allied veterans, artists and writers. It highlights key ideas, moments, projects, tactics, and individuals from IVAW history in order to uplift IVAW’s ongoing struggle, inspire others to take action, and preserve the movement’s history for future generations.
This poster series is a joint project of Booklyn Artists Alliance, Civilian-Soldier Alliance, Justseeds Artist’ Cooperative, Iraq Veterans Against the War, and Repetitive Press.
