To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

Here are some notes, followed by our more or less biweekly set of links to
recent articles by historians (or at least with substantial historical
content) on HAW-relevant topics.

1.  Today (October 7) Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) launched its
campaign called Operation Recovery: Stop the Deployment of Traumatized
Troops.  On its website, at http://www.ivaw.org/operation-recovery, IVAW
explains the background of the campaign and asks for public support.

2.  More than 150 scholars, including many historians, signed a September 29
press release (at https://nacla.org/node/6759) calling on Georgetown
University to revoke its appointment of former Colombia president Álvaro
Uribe as a “Distinguished Scholar in the Practice of Global
Leadership.”  Uribe’s
administration was linked to numerous human rights violations.

3.  Frank Brodhead, a history PhD and activist, sends weekly e-mailings
under the title of “Afghanistan War Weekly,” summarizing news reports from a
range of periodicals.  They are archived on the United for Peace and Justice
website at http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?id=4150, and anyone can
get on the e-mailing list by writing to the author at fbrodhead at aol.com.
