Today at 1 PM I will be speaking at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick Maine. I’ll be discussing the general impressions I gained regarding daily life in Iraq as well as their feelings about the occupation.
I will also try to touch on the recent developments in the politics of the Middle East, particularly the nomination of Ibrahim Al Jaafari as the new prime minister. I’ll also be updating the site soon with more thoughts and insight about developments in Iraq.
Tomorrow I will be speaking at Emerson College in Boston at 6 PM in the Bill Boardy Theatre.
The following week I will be speaking at the Cambridge School of Weston on the 27th, and on February 28th I will be speaking at the University of New Hampshire.
Please consider coming to these events, and if you can’t come to ask questions in person, feel free to post comments on this entry with questions you’d like me to try and help answer about the situation in Iraq.
As always, donations are much appreciated, as I hope to return to Baghdad in April, but must still raise around $4000 to make it!
Please donate here!
Also, if you can’t give money, consider donating old digital cameras or camcorders. I hope that when I return to Iraq I will be able to begin providing media equipment to Iraqis to tell their stories themselves!
