War that never ends

[PShift on 4ZZZ fm 102.1 at noon on Friday 19 July 2013]

On 5th July 2013 a forum was held at Trades Hall in Melbourne discussing opposition to the war and the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder experienced by veterans. The evening started with a screening of the film ‘On the Bridge’.

Jacob Grech from Trades Hall gave a thoughtful introduction.

The keynote speaker was Vince Emanuele from Iraq Veterans Against the War and Veterans for Peace. He gave a very moving speech discussing war in its social and political context. It’s very long, but very interesting.

[Thanks to Corey Green from 3CR in Melbourne for permission to use her recording of Vince’s speech and Jacob’s introduction.]
