Iraq Ten Years after the U.S. Invasion: Realities of Life for Iraqis in 2003 and 2012 Cathy Breen

Th. March 21, 7:00PM - University Temple United Methodist Church’s “Common Good Cafe”, 1415 NE 43rd Street, Seattle - on the corner of 15th Ave. NE and NE 43rd St. near U. Bookstore.

Cathy Breen works at a Catholic Worker House of Hospitality in New York City. As part of the Iraq Peace Team, she lived in Iraq before and during the U.S. “Shock and Awe” campaign in 2003. She returned to Iraq about 8 months later for another 3 months. Cathy spent time in both Jordan and Syria with Iraqi refugees, to witness to their reality and to advocate for their resettlement. In November 2012 Cathy went back to Iraq to see how Iraqis are faring, what they are saying, and to see Iraqis who had fled to Syria but have had to return. Her hope for the presentations is to simply take us with her on the journey to Iraq 10 years after the U.S. invasion.
