Anti-war veteran to speak at college

NORWALK - Anti-war activist Mike Prysner will be the featured speaker at a consortium March 9 at Cerritos College.Prysner was deployed to Iraq in 2003 with the U.S. Army, and occupied the country for 12 months. After joining the military for patriotic reasons, his experiences in Iraq turned him against the war and against U.S. foreign policy as a whole. He has since been an organizer in the anti-war movement, moblizing for mass demonstrations and organizing other veterans and active duty GIs. A military panel will also be present "which will make for a lively discussion of the war and U.S. foreign policy," college officials said. The event begins at 2 p.m. in the school's teleconference center and is open to the public. Admission is free and daily parking is $2.
