Shared Sacrifice Weekend: Dissident Soldiers: with special guest Jeff Paterson, Feb 13, 2010

We will explore the story of Marc Hall, Fort Stewart soldier and Hip Hop artist, who wrote an angry hip hop song about stop-loss and is being court-marshalled for it (the Army will actually ship him to Iraq or Kuwait for the trial). We will play the song, “Stop Loss,” on the podcast. Jeff Paterson is a former dissident soldier himself, and is project director of Courage to Resist. He will talk to us about Marc’s case, and his own refusal to deploy in the first Iraq war in 1991. During live streaming, please share your opinions in the chat room or give us a call at (347) 327-9615.
