In the spirit of Nuremberg, the Bertrand Russell Tribunal, and the World Tribunal on Iraq The Not In Our Name statement of conscience is proud to sponsor this Commission

Keynote addresses: The Moral Challenge and Responsibility of our Time • Howard Zinn, Historian, special videotaped message to the commission • Marcus Raskin, Institute for Policy Studies and The Nation editorial board

• Ann Wright, former foreign service officer who resigned from the State to protest the war on Iraq • Michael Ratner, president, Center for Constitutional Rights

"When we conducted missions, it became clear that there was no regard for the lives of the Iraqis. We conducted our operations in the cities. There are no trench lines in Iraq. The war is being fought in every corner of that country. Not in the deserts, not in the mountains, but next to the schools, the neighborhoods, the mosques... I could stand here for hours, go on and on about everything that I saw that was wrong. But I think that the main thing that creates violence in Iraq is that there is a sense among the Iraqi people that we are there to stay permanently to occupy and oppress them -- occupy and oppress their land -- and they are resisting that occupation. It does not matter if we have good feelings or we are acting out of fear or we are acting out of frustration. The fact is that we have no right to be there and they realize that…" -Camilo E. Mejia, GI resistor and member Iraq Veterans Against the War in testimony to the Commission
