On Friday November 14th in observance of Veterans Day, Houston Indymedia, Chapter 49 of Iraq Veterans Against the War, Chapter 12 of Veterans for Peace, Rice for Peace and Military Families Speak Out cosponsored screenings of Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan and Deserter at Rice Cinema.
There have been two major developments in the war this weekend. The Status of Forces talks to legalize continued US presence in Iraq are "dead in the water" and the Iraqi Islamic party(the Vice Prez's party!) has cut off all contact with the occupiers after a raid on Friday killed one of their key people.
Iraq's leading Sunni party said Saturday that it is cutting contact with the U.S. to protest against an operation targeting its members in the Anbar province.
