Iraq Vets lose Freedom of Speech!!!

From Courage to Resist:

Marines to review discharged vets for anti-war activity
Liam Madden and Adam Kokesh
Washington DC 3/19/07.

Courage to Resist
May 28, 2007

Adam Kokesh and Liam Madden are active members of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). Both are former Marine sergeants who served in Iraq and were later honorably discharged. Due to their outspoken opposition to the war, the Marine Corps is now formally threatening to revoke their discharges and retroactively change them to “other than honorable.”

This is a new, unprecedented step the military feels is necessary in order to suppress a growing anti-war voice from within the military itself. We cannot allow this suppression of free speech to occur! Adam Kokesh’s hearing is scheduled to be held in Kansas City, Missouri on June 4th.
