joshua key speaking tour

War resister Joshua Key - co-author, with Lawrence Hill, of The Deserter's Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away from the War in Iraq - is on a speaking tour of 13 western Canadian cities.

The excellent writer, thinker and activist Paul S. Graham has posted video of Josh's first talk: Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.

I regard The Deserter's Tale as the single best way to learn about Iraq War resisters: why people join the US military, what they find in Iraq, what happens when they try to leave. It's also an excellent read: you won't be able to put it down.

Many thanks to Paul for producing these videos and making them available. Paul has also posted the itinerary for Josh's tour.
