Col. Ann Wright, a former Army officer and state department official who quit her job in protest of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, will speak on a livestream hosted by Portland area peace groups on Monday, June 20 at 7:00 PM Pacific Time. Col. Wright's talk is titled "The US and NATO's 'Pivot to Asia' and Other Threats to Peace" and will be followed by a question and answer period hosted by local media personality Jenka Soderberg.

In addition to addressing the United States' military shift from the "Middle East" to the western Pacific (particularly China and Korea), and the ongoing neglect of Hawai'i (the 50th state) and the US military bases there, Col. Wright will address other issues related to US foreign and domestic policy. These include Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, the environmental impact of militarism, and of course, the US invasion and occupation of Iraq. Instructions for participating in the Q&A period following Col. Wright's presentation will be posted at the time of the event, which will be livestreamed on YouTube at The presentation is coordinated by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group.
