“I refuse to be silent any longer. I refuse to be party to an illegal and immoral war against people who did nothing to deserve our aggression. My oath of office is to protect and defend America’s laws and its people. By refusing unlawful orders for an illegal war, I fulfill that oath today.”Yesterday, a few Olympians gathered to celebrate Watada's refusal, and demonstrate our support of him.
- U.S. Army First Lt. Ehren Watada

Tomorrow, demonstrations are scheduled across the U.S. in support of the lieutenant and his courageous act of resistance to an ongoing illegal, unjust and immoral set of aggressive military actions (in Iraq.)
Locally, Watada supporters will gather at the Dupont/Steilacoom entrance to Ft. Lewis (the very place where Lt. Watada is currently stationed.) The location will be the overpass of interstate 5 associated with exit # 119.
Here's what it might look like tomorrow!
Thankyou Lt. Watada for your refusal to serve the ongoing unjustified, illegal and immoral military operation in Iraq.
