Lt. Ehren Watada, the first commissioned officer to publicly refuse to go back to Iraq, speaks at the 4th Eugene, OR Peace Rally.
Sue Supriano's Steppin' Out of Babylon is a radio interview series covering a broad range of important issues in today's world: peace and war, human and civil rights, communication, the media, the environment, food security, racism, globalization, immigration and matters of the spirit.

Lt. Ehren Watada is the first commissioned officer to publicly refuse to go back to Iraq. He spoke on March 17, 2007 at the Fourth Eugene, Oregon Peace Rally along with others including Kitty Piercy, the Mayor of Eugene.

On 3/17/07 Eugene mayor, Kitty Piercy, Lieutenant Ehren Watada, and others came together for peace with one hope -- to unite our global neighborhood, as we are all interconnected and our voices are strong! Hear about The City Council of Eugene's Resolution 4907 to end the war. Listen to the wisdom of Lt. Watada, who publicly refused to go back to the combat in Iraq on 6/27/06, becoming the first commissioned officer to do so.

This senseless Iraq War has carried a death toll of 3000 US troops and 650,000 Iraqis. Furthermore, countless innocent civilians have been injured, maimed and traumatized by the destruction of their homes, schools, businesses, sanitation, water, and basic infrastructure. Lt. Watada says, "We must not rest until we insure that every American and then every person has their right to civil liberties."

Recorded March 17, 2007.
