NEW PALTZ -- In January, during the week that marked the 10th anniversary of the Gulf War, sociology professor Barbara Ann Scott traveled to Iraq as part of an international delegation that delivered humanitarian aid and medicines in defiance of the U.S. blockade and in the midst of periodic bombings.
The delegation was organized and led by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark.
On Wednesday, March 28, Scott will offer an eyewitness account of the hardships of life in Iraq today, and an analysis of the "hidden history of the ten-year-long U.S. war against Iraq."
The presentation will be held in Lecture Center 102 beginning at 7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public. The event is co-sponsored by the Sociology Department and the International Action Center.
