Monumental Debate; Linking Terrorism and Iraq

District 6 City Councilor Rey Garduño is featured in the Albuquerque Journal article about a new war memorial that has broken ground.

If you have a subscription to the Journal, you can read the article here.

The article highlights a case that Councilor Rey Garduño and Charles Powell, president of the Albuquerque chapter of Veterans for Peace, brought before City Council months ago. The memorial is to honor fallen soldiers from the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars. Depictions in the memorial include images and photos of the attacks in Washington D.C. and New York, and the hijacked plane that went down in Pennsylvannia.

Councilor Garduño and others like Mr. Powell view the linking of Terrorism and Iraq as political smoke and mirrors to continue the deception of the public.
