This Is Where We Take Our Stand / We Were Soldiers in the "War on Terror"
THIS IS WHERE WE TAKE OUR STAND In March of 2008, 250 veterans and active duty soldiers marked the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq by gathering in Washington, DC to testify from their own experience about the nature of the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq. Inspired by the 1971 Winter Soldier Investigation held by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, they too sought to express their opposition to those wars with their first-hand accounts, bearing witness with voices not generally heard. Our documentary is a portrait of three participants. It follows their lives for 6 weeks leading to the event and afterward; an active duty female soldier, a 9 year National Guard Veteran, and a 3 tour former Marine. This is their story.
WE WERE SOLDIERS IN THE "WAR ON TERROR" 21 governments have sent soldiers to Iraq. 21 governments have sent soldiers to Afghanistan. Now the U.S. wants to widen the war! For the truth about these wars, here is authentic testimony from U.S. soldiers who were there and who are building a soldier resistance movement.
