War is Trauma exhibition at the Clearing Barrel – a GI Resistance Coffee House in Germany

March 31, 2012

Recently IVAW member and field organizer Aaron Hughes sent a copy of the Justseeds-IVAW “War is Trauma” portfolio (plus copies of the 5 large silkscreen posters that Jesse Purcell produced) to a brand new GI Resistance cafe in Germany. The Clearing Barrel Bar and CafĂ© opened on Saturday, March 24, in Kaiserslautern, Germany, home to Ramstein Air Base and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, among a constellation of U.S. bases, with 50,000 U.S. military and civilian personnel living in the area.


I couldn’t imagine a better home for the prints than a GI resistance coffee house and much respect and admiration to Chris Capps-Schubert, an Iraq veteran and war resister, and his wife Meike, an organizer and member of Military Families Speak Out, for opening this important space for organizing and resistance.
