Congressman Maurice Hinchey will hold a forum in Ithaca on the war in Iraq at the war's fifth anniversary. The forum is at 6 pm, Wednesday 19 March, at the First Baptist Church in Dewitt Park. It is free and open to the public.
Hinchey has been a leading opponent of the war since its start. His presentation on Wednesday will address the economic impact of the war, which has cost $500 billion so far.
If you can't make it to the forum, you can read a statement by Hinchey in the op/ed section of the Ithaca Journal of Wed. 19 March, or in the Opinion section of the on-line Journal.
