Peace Ribbon Closing Event will Feature the Watadas Mon. Feb. 26, 5pm.
Bob and Rosa Watada, father and step-mother of Hawaii war resister Lt.
Ehren Watada, will speak on Monday, February 26 for the closing event of
the Peace Ribbon Project. The free public talk is at 5pm in the
library’s ground floor classroom, co-sponsored by Maui Peace Action,
Code Pink Maui, the MCC Peace Club and the Associated Students of MCC.
The Watadas’ topic is their son Lt. Ehren Watada’s stand for the
Constitution and for a soldier’s constitutional rights. They will also
give an update and answer questions on what may potentially be next for
Ehren, whose court-martial ended in a mistrial on Feb. 7.
The 125 panels of Code Pink’s nationally-traveling Peace Ribbon Project,
each honoring a person or group of persons killed in the Iraq invasion
and occupation are on display in the MCC Library through the 26th of
February. The public may see the exhibit, which is hung on all 3 floors
of the library, between the hours of 8am and 8pm Monday through Thursday
and between 8am and 4:30pm on Friday and Saturday. For more information,
