On Tuesday, June 3, join the Center for Constitutional Rights for an exciting live webcast of the event “True Crimes: The Untold Story Behind the Devastation of Iraq.” The event, which will take place at New York City’s Town Hall, features bestselling author JEREMY SCAHILL, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer CHRIS HEDGES, journalistLAILA AL-ARIAN, and The New Yorker‘s SEYMOUR HERSH, as they go behind the headlines to tell the untold story of the occupation of Iraq, the daily plight of Iraqi civilians, and the ongoing role of private mercenaries in America’s so-called “war on terror.”

The webcast will stream live on CCR’s website onTuesday, June 3, 7 p.m. EST. Go here for more details.  

This event also marks the book launches of Collateral Damage: America’s War Against Iraqi Civilians by Chris Hedges and Laila al-Arian and the updated paperback edition of Blackwater: Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army by Jeremy Scahill.

CCR has worked with all of these authors in our pursuit of justice for the victims of the war and occupation of Iraq. Recently, we filed new cases against Blackwater for its killing of Iraqi civilians as well as a new case against CACI and Titan, military contractors in Iraq who were responsible for interrogation and translation at Abu Ghraib.

The event is co-sponsored by CCR, The Nation, Public Concern Foundation, Democracy Now!, The Indypendent, CERSC, Democrats. com, Veterans for Common Sense, Peace Action New York, Alternet and Tricycle.
