Matthew Hoh and Zaher Wahab speak in Oregon
The last week in June, Peace Action West joined with groups around Oregon to present two wonderful speakers on Afghanistan: Matthew Hoh, Director of the Afghanistan Study Group and former Marine and State Department employee who resigned in protest of the war in Afghanistan; and Dr. Zaher Wahab, a professor at Lewis & Clark college who grew up in Afghanistan and returns there regularly to train teachers.
We had wonderful turnouts for our events in Eugene and Portland. Many thanks to the groups who made the events possible.
For those of you who weren’t able to join us in person, you can watch video of Matthew and Zaher from the Portland event below.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAEJTmmIN6s&feature=player_profilepage] [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=749f4ecLqTg&feature=player_profilepage]
