Iraq War talk features veteran from university

The Iraq Committee of UM Young Democrats presented an “Iraq War Teach-In” Wednesday night in the Learning Center as part of Iraq Awareness Week. The event featured four speakers: Jessica Carrillo, a current UM student who was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan; Iraq War Veteran Mark Read; UM sociology professor and Miami for Peace activist Linda Belgrave; and Abdy Javadzadeh, a Florida International University sociology professor.

Carrillo, who has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, recalled incidences of suicide bombings and land mine explosions with teary eyes and a trembling voice. Belgrave highlighted the economic implications of the war. She also said that three million Iraqis have been killed – a number that has been disputed – and there have been more than 4,000 U.S. casualties.

The speakers’ presentations were followed by a question and answer session with the 40-member audience.
