Ethan McCord, Iraq war veteran and first-hand witness to the scene of the massacre of Iraqi civilians seen in the Wikileaks video "Collateral Murder," speaks for a second time at the United National Peace Conference in Albany, NY on July 24, 2010. He recaps the lingering effects war has had on him, his friends and compatriots, the enemy, and all civilians, and turns to the need for better strategies for building the antiwar movement.
"If we're serious, then we really need to strategize about how to build power. Not just amongst those that are already on our side, but amongst the majority of us. This means more than bumper stickers, bonfires, and fundraising parties. It means working alongside folks we have yet to reach, of different race, community, and economic backgrounds."
