Dear (Re)Collection: A WGS Newsletter Readers:
On February 27 to March 2, 2009, Women for Genuine
Security and the women of the International Women’s Peace Network in
the Asia-Pacific participated in the national organizing conference at
American University, “Security Without Empire.” WGS was joined by our
collaborators in Guam, Hawaii, Japan, Korea, Okinawa, and Puerto Rico.
Our sisters from the Philippines were missed.
Contributions in this newsletter include reflection pieces and speeches
by those who participated from Hawaii, San Francisco, and Guam. We are
also proud to have another Insight Interview present in this collection
that delves into Amerasian experiences through perspective of Ikehara
Eriko. And we hope that our readers will enjoy our more visual
components that include photos of the vigil and opening ceremony from
the national conference and the anti-military fashion show.
We want to thank all of our contributors and invite our readers to join
us in this continued journey.
