Army Colonel (Ret.) and diplomat Ann Wright is one of three State Dept. officials who publicly resigned in protest at the U.S. Invasion of Iraq.
She has been a tireless anti-war activist ever since. She worked with Cindy Sheehan at Camp Casey. She was part of the Bring Them Home Now bus tour. She has been arrested multiple times for acts of civil disobedience; most recently she was arrested on March 20th outside of Quantico, alongside Daniel Ellsberg, as they protested the unconstitutional confinement of Bradley Manning.
Ann has worked tirelessly for justice in Palestine as well. She was on the steering committee for the Gaza Freedom March. She was a passenger on board the Challenger 1 of the Gaza Flotilla. There she witnessed Israeli Defense Forces shooting percussion grenades into the the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara. Her own ship was boarded as well.
Ann Wright and Susan Dixon co-authored, Dissent: Voices of Conscience which tells the stories of those who have risked their careers and reputations to speak out against the war against Iraq.
