[haw-info] Let Them Stay: Oral Histories of Iraq War Resisters in Canada

Luke Stewart, a member of the HAW Steering Committee since 2011, is a
graduate student at the University of Waterloo and a leading activist in
support of US military personnel whose objections to the Iraq War led
them to seek refuge in Canada. He has now put together an edited
collection of oral histories, public statements, and personal narratives
of these war resisters between 2004 and 2013. He has donated his time,
money, energy and passion since 2011 editing this collection with the
War Resisters Support Campaign out of Toronto. The book is therefore the
product of an independent, grassroots initiative and is almost ready for
publication. Stewart is starting a fundraising campaign for final
production and marketing costs with Iguana Books, the publisher.

With the help of volunteers - including a professional editor,
videographer, and graphic designer - Stewart and the Support Campaign
have reduced the final cost to publish the book down to a very low
level: $6500. The fundraising efforts will go to pay for
marketing/promotion, ebook and print formatting, distribution licenses
(for bookstores and libraries), and other final production costs. Any
amount over the $6500 goal will go directly to the War Resisters Support
Campaign, and all royalties for the book will go directly to the war
resisters' legal, housing, medical, dental, and other associated costs
while seeking sanctuary in Canada.
