The 50th anniversary of the infamous My Lai Massacre will be on March 16.
The San Diego Veterans For Peace are bringing the 16-panel My Lai Memorial Exhibit Program, developed by the Chicago Veterans For Peace, to San Diego for four days, March 14-17, to honor the over two million Vietnamese civilians who died in what this country calls the “Vietnam War” and the Vietnamese call the “American War.”
This unique program includes an interactive art exhibit that allows the public to observe, participate in, and reflect upon these events of war. The Memorial Exhibit will also feature nationally-known experts on this country's wars abroad and violence at home. There will be panel Q & A to delve into this country's ongoing policies in Syria, Iran and North Korea.
