A Perspective on US-IRAQ Relations Presented at UW-Fox

Mike Miles, representing "Voices in the Wilderness," is making a presentation on the status of sanctions that the United States has placed on Iraq, on Monday, April 12, 1999. Mr. Miles lecture is to be held in room #1346, from 12 noon – 1:00 p.m. on the UWFox campus.

Mr. Miles states that he "has been involved in the peace movement for 20 years." He currently lives at the Anathoth Community Farm, in northern Wisconsin. The Farm is an on-going experiment "in the theory and practice of non-violence and sustainable living."

Other projects that the Anathoth Community Farm has been involved with include:

  • "Stop Project ELF,"
  • "Witness for Nonviolence" (Indian Treaty Rights),
  • "International Campaign to Ban Landmines,"
  • "war tax resistance,"
  • "the movement to stop the Persian Gulf War,"
  • "Prairie Island Coalition."

He identifies the Farm’s current campaign, "Voices in the Wilderness," as "a campaign to end the sanctions against Iraq."

Since being affiliated with the "Voices in the Wilderness" campaign, Mr. Miles has been to Iraq twice, to bring "medicine and toys to children’s hospitals," he explains.

An extensive article about Mr. Miles and the "Voices in the Wilderness" campaign appeared in the April issue of The Scene, a Fox Cities publication.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Free parking is available on the West Side of the building.

The University of Wisconsin – Fox Valley is located between S. Oneida St. on the east and S. Appleton Road on the west, and south of Hwy. 441 on the south.
