Ann Wright speak about her latest efforts towards a ceasefire in Gaza which included a recent unsuccessful effort to sail to Gaza on the Freedom Flotilla.

Ann Quoted in . ‘We are more complicit:’ Biden’s Israel policies spur feds to protest at the White House, A group of federal employees say their knowledge and access force them to speak out against the administration's position in the Israel-Gaza war.
May 15, 2024.
Ann Wright has stayed active with the movement despite resigning as a Foreign Service officer at the State Department in 2003 as a protest against the Iraq war. She has remained an activist since that time and sees it as the duty for federal employees to do the same. “I think government employees and their resignation, or when they're challenging, is really, really important because they're the ones that are in the know,” Wright said. “You the public need to think more about what's happening and we as government employees that are in the know are saying, ‘Think, think and act right.’” Wright encouraged more employees to follow her path and resign from government service, but to one current employee who works in human rights and national security within the Homeland Security Department, there is more that can be done from the inside. .

Freedom Flotilla to set sail for Gaza, Ann Wright quoted
Defying the potential of another deadly Israeli attack on aid workers, activist ships are once more sailing to Gaza to break the siege and deliver relief to starving Palestinians.
April 22, 2024.
Retired US army colonel Ann Wright, a member of the steering committee of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition and who led a pre-launch press conference in Istanbul last Friday, said: “These ships are not part of the hostilities. They are from unarmed civilians representing the world. As the International Court of Justice has said, the responsibility of citizens and governments is to stop a genocide, so that’s what we are doing.”.

Pro-Palestine activists defy Israel with Gaza-bound aid flotilla, Ann Wright quoted
April, 2024.
Former US diplomat and retired US Army Colonel Ann Wright is one of the primary organisers of the FFC. In 2003 she resigned from the US Government in protest against the Iraq War. Speaking to TNA, Wright said the mission of the flotilla was to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza's starved population. "When you witness genocide, you can't stand back. I'm 77, but even if I were a hundred, I'd still be on this boat," said Wright. Wright and her fellow activists are also determined to shine a spotlight on the dire humanitarian crisis unfolding in Gaza, bringing international human rights observers to the territory to witness the unfolding genocide. “Our message to the people of Gaza is that we love you and are trying desperately to stop this genocide...To the Israeli people, I say you have a responsibility to stop your government's genocide of Palestinians. I know the propaganda that comes from governments at war, having been a former US diplomat. But what's happening in Gaza is genocide, and when you see what your government has done, you'll be horrified.” Wright added. .

Israeli pressure delayed Freedom Flotilla’s departure for Gaza: Organisers, Organisers say the initiative aims to challenge Israel’s 17-year-old blockade and put an end to the ongoing ‘genocide’.

800 government employees. Transatlantic Civil Servants’ Statement on Gaza: It Is Our Duty To Speak Out When Our Governments’ Policies Are Wrong
February 2, 2024.
Transatlantic Civil Servants’ Statement on Gaza: It Is Our Duty To Speak Out When Our Governments’ Policies Are Wrong Released February 2, 2024 Declaration of civil servants regarding Gaza: Recalling that: We have the duty to respect, protect and uphold our constitutions and international and national legal obligations which our democratically elected executives have committed us to; We are expected as civil servants to respect, serve and uphold the law while implementing policies, regardless of the political parties in power; that we have done so for our entire careers; We have been hired to serve, inform and advise our governments/institutions and we have demonstrated professionalism, expertise, and experience that our governments have relied on over the past decades of our service; We have internally expressed our concerns that the policies of our governments/institutions do not serve our interests and called for alternatives that would better serve national and international security, democracy and freedom; reflect the core principles of western foreign policy; and incorporate lessons learned; Our professional concerns were overruled by political and ideological considerations; We are obliged to do everything in our power on behalf of our countries and ourselves to not be complicit in one of the worst human catastrophes of this century; and We are obliged to warn the publics of our countries, whom we serve, and to act in concert with transnational colleagues. We publicly reiterate our concerns that: Israel has shown no boundaries in its military operations in Gaza which has resulted in tens of thousands of preventable civilian deaths; and that the deliberate blocking of aid by Israel has led to a humanitarian catastrophe, putting thousands of civilians at risk of starvation and slow death; Israel's military operations have not contributed to its goal of releasing all hostages and is putting their well-being, lives and release at risk; Israel's military operations have disregarded all important counterterrorism expertise gained since 9/11; and that the operation has not contributed to Israel’s goal of defeating Hamas and instead has strengthened the appeal of Hamas, Hezbollah and other negative actors; The ongoing military operation will be detrimental not just for Israel’s own security but also regional stability; the risk of wider wars is also negatively impacting stated security objectives of our governments; Our governments have provided the Israeli military operation with public, diplomatic and military support; that this support has been given without real conditions or accountability; and that when faced with humanitarian catastrophe, our governments have failed to call for an immediate ceasefire and an end to blockages of necessary food/water/medicine in Gaza; Our governments’ current policies weaken their moral standing and undermine their ability to stand up for freedom, justice, and human rights globally and weaken our efforts to rally international support for Ukraine and to counter malign actions by Russia, China and Iran; and There is a plausible risk that our governments’ policies are contributing to grave violations of international humanitarian law, war crimes and even ethnic cleansing or genocide. We therefore call on our governments/institutions to: Stop asserting to the public that there is a strategic and defensible rationale behind the Israeli operation and that supporting it is in our countries’ interests; Hold Israel, like all actors, accountable to international humanitarian and human rights standards applied elsewhere and to forcefully respond to attacks against civilians, as we are doing in our support to the Ukrainian people; this includes demanding immediate and full implementation of the recent order of the International Court of Justice; Use all leverage available - including a halt to military support - to secure a lasting ceasefire and full humanitarian access in Gaza and a safe release of all hostages; and Develop a strategy for lasting peace that includes a secure Palestinian state and guarantees for Israel’s security, so that an attack like 7 October and an offensive on Gaza never happen again. Coordinated by civil servants in: European Union institutions and bodies The Netherlands United States Also endorsed by civil servants in: Belgium Denmark Finland France Germany Italy Spain Sweden Switzerland United Kingdom .

Ann Wright quoted in this article. Activists Disrupt Hearing on UNRWA 'Failures'
January 30, 2024.
Ann Wright, a retired army colonel State Department official, is one of the protesters seen being detained in the footage. She says: “The Biden administration is complicit in genocide. It is killing people just as the Israelis are. It’s our weapons. It’s our money, it’s our money that’s doing this.” ANN WRIGHT: It's starving-- starving people. It's people that have childbirth without anesthesia, kids that are having to have their limbs amputated because of Israeli attacks, horrible attacks that have killed 26,000 people, that have killed 10,000. OK. Don't hurt my arms. Don't hurt my arms. Don't hurt my arms. I'm 77 years old. I'm an army colonel. I'm a retired diplomat. And what the US is doing-- the Biden administration is part of the genocide. It's a genocide that the Biden administration is complicit in. The Biden administration is complicit in genocide. It is killing people just as the Israelis are. It's our weapons. It's our money. It's our money that's doing this. And the money for UNRWA is very important to keep people from starving to death after we're trying to kill them all. Two million people that are there, crammed into a tiny part of Gaza, and we're trying to kill them, starve them to death, and all of the people that need medical care, that need help, and they're not getting it. We're killing them. I interrupted this program that they're having, that the Congress has on UNRWA, an organization that is critical for Palestinian survival in Gaza, critical for that-- the health, the education, the medical care. Easy, easy, I really bruise. I bruise. Yeah. I've been to Gaza 10 different times. I've been there to see the destruction of earlier times when the Israelis were killing people. It's just terrible what's going on right now. 26,000 people that have been killed. 10,000 kids that have been killed. All of these people that are undergoing, you know, amputations with no medicine, anesthesia, nothing. And then the starving-- these kids that are starving to death, that there's no food, that they're not letting the food in. And then the Biden administration, I mean, we're giving them weapons. We're killing them with weapons. We're killing them with no food. .

WORKSHOP: RISING DANGER OF WAR IN ASIA-PACIFIC: US V. CHINA AND NORTH KOREA? ​Presenters: Ann Wright · K.J. Noh · Simone Chun · Peter Kuznick This is a webinar that was presented on August 26, 2023, at the Veterans For Peace (VFP) National Convention. The webinar was jointly sponsored by the VFP Nuclear Abolition Working Group, the VFP China Working Group. and the VFP Korea Peace Campaign. Moderator: Col. Ann Wright (US Army, retired). Panelists: K.J. Noh, Simone Chun, & Peter Kuznick. ABOUT THE WEBINAR: Numerous US intelligence analysts, diplomats, officials, and military generals have described China as an existential threat, and the 2022 National Defense Strategy, or NDS, places a primary focus on the need to “sustain and strengthen U.S. deterrence against China." Sixty percent of US naval power is now stationed around China, while US and allied military bases surrounding China prepare for a war to "contain" China's peaceful economic rise. In the meantime, tensions on the Korean Peninsula are escalating. The "Washington Declaration" from the Biden-Yoon summit in April openly threatened that the US "will further enhance the regular visibility of strategic assets to the Korean Peninsula," including an "upcoming visit of a US nuclear ballistic missile submarine to the ROK." What are the risks of war, even nuclear war, as US elites push our world towards a global war in Asia? Four experts will discuss the situation and the dangers involved..

Ann Wright quoted in Why Swedish Love for the US Turned Deadly by Eleanor Goldfield
August 4, 2023.
Among the future aims of NATO with regards to Sweden, there are many reasons why Swedes would want to run as fast as they could from a NATO membership. As of 2022, Sweden spends roughly 1.3 percent of its GDP on military expenditure, some $7.7 billion. NATO demands that member states spend 2 percent of GDP on so-called defense. That’s a massive boost to military spending for our little country. And as peace activist and former US Army Colonel Ann Wright pointed out in a recent interview on the Project Censored Show:Global Women for Peace United Against NATO Conference. https://www.projectcensored.org/police-accountability-global-women-for-peace-united-against-nato-conference/.

Ann Wright quoted in Honolulu Star Advertiser article:, Marine Corps transition continues with new drones at Kaneohe base
June 26, 2023.
The Reapers’ arrival in Hawaii hasn’t been without controversy. During the 2021 drone exercise, local activists demonstrated outside the Marines’ Kaneohe base with signs that read, “No Reapers!” and “Drones Kill Kids.” One of them was Ann Wright, a retired Army officer and diplomat who became an outspoken critic of the U.S. military. Wright told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that “now Hawaii-based young men and women who operate killer drones will have the same long-term traumatic stress as operators from other U.S. drone bases who killed innocent civilians, as has been the history of drone operators who have killed wedding parties, funeral processions and kids meeting their parents in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Mali, Syria.” .

It's just that they were in their place and had to govern, and they didn't speak openly until they were old and retired. This is not easy enough. We understand that many problems are at the national level, and it is not just a few individuals who can make a difference." Some people also shared their thoughts on the war because of your sharing: "The United States is always hungry, always trying to drain the blood of the world. When the entire class of countries from top to bottom seriously consider the harm caused by the leadership of the United States, it is the collapse of the foundation of the American order"..

PODCAST: UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE--Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK co-founder and co-author of War In Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict, and Ann Wright, a CODEPINK member, retired Army colonel, and former State Department diplomat, join "Unauthorized Disclosure" hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola to discuss the high stakes of a protracted conflict in Ukraine. Initially, President Joe Biden said the United States would not ship tank to Ukraine. That line was crossed, and now Ukraine would like fighter jets. Both Medea and Ann address the issue of escalating with more and more weapons and military equipment and crossing red lines that are drawn by officials. Medea draws from her experience in antiwar organizing to share how difficult it has been to advocate for a diplomatic settlement and mobilize Americans to oppose fueling this war. Later in the conversation, Ann, who lives in Hawaii, responds to the prevalent idea that the conflict in Ukraine against Russia has been a test run for a war over Taiwan against China. Hawaii is a US military launchpad for Asia-Pacific exercises and actions intended to curtail China's influence in the region. .

As the world already could be destroyed with nuclear weapons from submarines, there is no reasonable rationale for nuclear weapons onboard surface ships.” In the interview, I said there was no rationale for ANY nuclear weapons but they left that out..

Largest Ever US & NATO Naval War Drills in Pacific a Threat to Both Peace and Marine Life
June 20, 2022.
Military posturing in the Asia-Pacific also risks nuclear war and the potential extinction of the human species. Military responses to perceived national security issues by any of the countries in the region whether it be North Korea, China, Russia or the United States will be disastrous for peoples over the entire planet.We citizens must not let our governments continue confrontation instead of dialogue to resolve national security issues. The lives of people around the world are at stake. We must not let those who make money and political status out of war win...AGAIN...and start another horrific war for "peace." .

Wright addressed other issues related to US foreign and domestic policy. These include Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, the environmental impact of militarism, and of course, the US invasion and occupation of Iraq..

RUSSIANS SAY, DON’T HATE US FOR WHAT OUR LEADERS HAVE DONE, “…We Didn’t Hate You For What Bush Did To Iraq!”
March 8, 2022.
As a U.S. diplomat who resigned from the U.S. government in 2003 in opposition to Bush’s war on Iraq, I hoped at the time that all Americans would not be vilified by the world for the actions of the Bush administration. As hard as it might be for some, I plead that we not vilify Russians for the actions of their political leaders. I hope that we can be as generous to peace-seeking Russians as the world was to anti-war Americans. I have visited Russia twice in the past six years and I know the Russians I spoke with, and I would guess that most Russians, do not want war and object to Putin’s war on Ukraine..

Women Appeal for a Ceasefire, Ending the Threat of Nuclear War and for Peace, Wtonl_banner_with_text_cutout Women Transforming Our Nuclear Legacy
March 8, 2022.
We are women who are heartbroken over the war in Ukraine and deeply concerned about the risk of catastrophic nuclear war. We are mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and we are sisters, one to another. Today our hearts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine and with everyone suffering and traumatized by this war. We appeal to world leaders for the sake of humanity to implement an immediate ceasefire. We appeal to you to stop the killing, stop the bloodshed, and to resolve this conflict through dialogue and diplomacy to put an end to this war. We need more diplomacy, not more weapons and war. We are in the most dangerous moment of the nuclear age since the Cuban Missile Crisis, with extreme tensions between the United States and Russia who together possess over 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons. A nuclear war would mean the end of life as we know it, of all we love and cherish on this planet. We worry that events could spiral out of control and lead to an escalation to nuclear war due to accident, blunder, miscalculation or mistake. For the sake of our children, for the sake of future generations, we women appeal for peace. #WomenCall4PeaceUkraine Please join us..

Independent American and Russian Women Call for Peace
Ann Wright is one of the signatories of the letter..
February 15, 2022.
This letter came about through the work of American and Russian women participating in a dialogue and peacebuilding initiative found in 2021 by Women Transforming Our Nuclear Legacy and the American Committee for US-Russia Accord. We are women from the United States and Russia who are deeply concerned about the risk of possible war between our two countries, who together possess over 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons. We are mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and we are sisters, one to another. Today we stand with our sisters in Ukraine, East and West, whose families and country have been torn apart, have already suffered more than 14,000 deaths. We stand together and we call for peace and diplomacy, with respect for all.We stand together and we call for peace and diplomacy, with respect for all. We are united in the belief that diplomacy, dialogue, engagement and exchange are urgently needed to end the current crisis and avert a catastrophic military conflict that could spiral out of control " even push the world to the precipice of nuclear war. For the U.S. and Russia, the only sane and humane course of action now is a principled commitment to clear, creative and persistent diplomacy" not military action. At this perilous juncture, rather than allocate blame, we should be seeking 21st century alternatives to senseless military conflicts and wasteful spending on war. It is a time to redefine security so that women, families, and our children, can live in peace. At a time when we find ourselves in perhaps the most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis, we call on the media in both our countries to stop fueling the flames of war. We call on the media to fulfill their ethical responsibility as journalists to remind us of the price of war, the bloodshed and loss of human lives, to demand evidence when claims are made that can escalate tensions, and to have the courage to sound the alarm on the risk of escalation to a nuclear war that would mean the end of life as we know it. These are times of fear but also of hope and possibility.At a time when poverty is increasing in the U.S., Ukraine and Russia, when the world collectively faces the existential threat of climate change, a pandemic that has taken 5.8 million lives and caused rising “deaths of despair,” declining life expectancy and extreme inequality, isn’t it time to think anew? How might we seize the day and lay out a 21st century vision " that not only advances peace and security, but can unite the world " essentially a new realism? What could creative, humane diplomacy look like? If done thoughtfully, it could do more than resolve the standoff in Ukraine " it could pave the way for broader cooperation between the U.S., Russia, and Europe and beyond on climate, disarmament and more. It could lay the seeds for a new, demilitarized and shared security architecture. We independent women, seekers of peace and security, understand the vital importance of engaging minds and hearts. We call on you to share this call for peace and urge our governments to keep talking, to pursue clear, creative and persistent diplomacy. These are times of fear but also of hope and possibility. The world is in motion, the future is not written. As Americans and Russians, we have a compelling stake in deescalating tensions between our countries. The approach we suggest surely is more realistic, more wise, than preparing for a military conflict that could lead to unthinkable nuclear war. We stand together and we call for peace. Stand with us..

Honolulu Star Advertiser. EDITORIAL | INSISLAND VOICES Column: For the sake of innocent civilians, stop the next war now by deploying true dialogue and diplomacy
January 30, 2022.
We’ve seen this before. The U.S. creates a situation, digs in its heels and makes ultimatums " and tens of thousands die. We’ve seen it in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now it may be over Ukraine or Taiwan. U.S. politicians, think-tank pundits and government war makers have created a war atmosphere on many fronts. From the U.S. military policy makers in Washington, to the boots on the ground in Europe and the Middle East, to those in ships and aircraft in the Pacific, the U.S. military is under great stress from multiple crises that did not have to happen. Instead of slowing down and backing off, the Biden administration is led by a very aggressive Secretary of State Antony Blinken and a go-along Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. President Joe Biden seems to have given a dangerous green light to escalation on all fronts at the same time. In response to U.S. war-mongering on steroids, both Russia and China are calling the diplomatic and military hands of the United States at the same time. Russian President Vladimir Putin deployed about 125,000 troops to the border of Ukraine, bringing to a head the Russian Federation’s demand that the U.S. and NATO formally declare that Ukraine would not be recruited into NATO military forces. This, after 30 years of the U.S. poaching former Warsaw Pact countries into NATO despite President George H.W. Bush’s promise that the U.S. would not do so. On the other side of the world, in the Asia-Pacific region, President Xi Jinping of China is responding to the U.S. “pivot to Asia” that has withered the 50-year U.S. policy of diplomatic recognition of the People’s Republic of China " while continuing economic and military support of Taiwan. The “One China” policy was begun decades ago in the 1970s under the Nixon administration. The innocuous sounding “Freedom of Navigation” naval missions to stake out U.S. domination of the South China Sea have morphed into a NATO naval mission with ships from the United Kingdom and France joining the U.S. armada in China’s seaside front yard. Today, two U.S. Navy carrier groups, each with an aircraft carrier and five to eight accompanying ships, are in the South China Sea. U.S. diplomatic missions to Taiwan that had not happened in 50 years began under the Trump administration and now have the highest-ranking U.S. government officials in five decades making highly publicized trips to Taiwan as a stick to poke in the eye of the Chinese government.

January 5, 2022.
Episode 125: Our CODEPINK Wish List for 2022: CODEPINK Congress co-hosts Medea Benjamin and Marcy Winograd discuss what President Biden could do with a stroke of his pen to alleviate much of the world's suffering. From Yemen to Afghanistan to Cuba to the U.S., we discuss the impact of U.S. militarism poisoning water in Hawaii, arming right-wing police forces around the world and imposing war-like sanctions that hurt vulnerable populations and weaken civil society. Demand executive action now! Featured guests: Colonel Ann Wright, who resigned from the State Department to protest the 2003 US invasion of Iraq; Pat Elder, author of "Military Recruiting in the United States;" Danaka Katovich, CODEPINK organizer of the Youth Peace Collective; John Lindsay-Poland, coordinator of Global Exchange's "Stop U.S. Arms to Mexico" project..

Hawaii’s water protectors lead a growing movement to close Navy fuel site after poisonous leak
January 3, 2022.
Ann Wright quoted extensively: Antiwar veteran and O’ahu resident Ann Wright, who has been active in the Shut Down Red Hill movement, says that the economic role of the military has kept the state government complacent with the Navy’s presence. “Besides tourism, it’s Department of Defense money that runs the state, so all of our Congress people are the big pork barrel people getting military projects here,” Wright said. “So the state has gone along with it and has not really kept good investigations going and made sure permits are issued.” “If it had been over at the part of town where I live, the Navy wouldn’t have given a rat’s ass about it,” Wright said. “But because it’s military families, and those military families have wives, there’s nothing worse than an angry military spouse. Having been in the military 29 years I know, when things go wrong on a military base and the wives get mad, all hell breaks loose.” Both Muneoka and Wright explained that, while much of the ongoing activism is challenging the Navy’s desire to leave the fuel tanks in place, the military will likely only shut down Red Hill if they are ordered to do so from President Biden. “When the Secretary of the Navy says to the governor’s order that the tanks should be shut down and drained, ‘I consider it a request,’ that gives you the idea of what’s happening,” Wright said..

While the U.S. Navy continues to argue that U.S. national security requires that its 80-year-old leaking 20 story underground jet fuel tanks remain open, I argue the opposite"that for U.S. national security reasons the 200-million-gallon facility be closed down before a catastrophic leak destroys the potable water supply for 400,00 residents of Oahu, including 100,000 US military and their families..

Ann Wright Speaking on Hawaii Public Radio for the return of 30,000 acres of Hawaii state land from the US military
August 25, 2021.
Wright says the military should return the land to the state. "I'm very well aware of the national security concerns of our country. However, I'm also very well aware that the U.S. military generally wants as much as it can get on anything, whether it's weapons or land or whatever. "It's not like not leasing these 30,000 acres means that the U.S. military is being kicked out of Hawaiʻi, at all. The fact [is] that it got a free deal 65 years ago. And it's time that a rational look is made at what is really necessary for military exercises. The U.S. needs to be looking more on diplomatic ways to resolve situations rather than using our U.S. military,".

Webinar for UN Commission on Status of Women. Military Women- At Risk from Fellow Soldiers
March 23, 2021.
Militaries have violent missions. Members are trained in state-sponsored and state-regulated violence toward persons in other countries. However, violence all too often is turned on fellow military members, their own families and their communities. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence and murder are tragic and criminal aspects of military life. Despite Congressional mandates for senior military leadership to implement programs to stop these criminal acts, they continue unabated. Citizen organizations such as Service Women’s Action Network and Protect our Defenders provide assistance to survivors. Veterans For Peace members speak in high schools about the dangers of military service. Panelists-all veterans: Ellen Barfield, Adrienne Kinne, Natasha Erskine and Ann Wright all from Veterans For Peace and Lory Manning of Service Womens Action Network.

Letter from the Gaza Freedom Flotilla to Secretary of State Pompeo
July 28, 2018.
July 26, 2018 Secretary of State Mike Pompeo US Department of State Washington, DC The 2018 Gaza Freedom Flotilla after a 70-day trip from Scandinavia stopping in ports in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Italy, departed Sicily and is now heading across the Mediterranean to Gaza to challenge the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza. The representative of the United States, U.S. Navy survivor of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty ship, Joe Meadors, is on board the ship Al Awda with a number of other prominent human rights advocates from around the world. The flotilla carries 116 boxes of urgently needed medical supplies, primarily sterile gauze and sutures, to be gifted to Gaza's over-stretched health services due to the execution of 140 Palestinians in Gaza and severe injury to over 16,000 Palestinians by the Israeli Occupation Forces in the past two months during the Friday Great Return Marches. The three boats of the flotilla will be gifted to Gaza's fishers who are now having to fish within three miles of the shore due to Israel's lethal enforcement of a Israeli declared fishing zone in Gaza waters. One boat is a fishing trawler and two are sailboats. Like previous similar humanitarian missions, this flotilla with unarmed, civilian human rights activists poses no threat to Israel. Israel's own actions toward Palestinians is what causes Israel to feel threatened. However, in light of Israel's unwarranted and illegal interception and seizure of previous Gaza-bound civilian boats in international waters, with this open letter, we call on the Government of the United States to urgently demand that Israeli authorities end their inhumane blockade of the Gaza Strip and allow the 2018 Gaza Freedom Flotilla safe and unhindered passage to their destination -- the port of Gaza City. .

Response Mixed to Hawaiis Second Nuclear AirRaid Siren Test
January 3, 2018.
Here is Ann Wright's quote: Retired Army Col. Ann Wright, who is with Veterans for Peace, said the sirens are a kind of warmongering. I think the probability of the North Koreans firing a missile to the United States is zero, Wright said. I mean, they know exactly what would happen if they would do that. Their country would be obliterated, and that is not what they want. Wright, a Honolulu resident who was in North Korea two years ago with a group of 30 women who met with 250 North Korean women on the issue of peace on the Korean Peninsula, said the North wants a peace treaty. The United States and international community have to negotiate with North Korea, she maintains. We (the United States) are so belligerent on so many things, Wright said, that we do have to swallow a little crow. How did the Vietnam War end? Crow-eating. All of these endless things will stop when we get ourselves out of the corner we have backed ourselves into..

Diplomats Dissent Over Syria Widens Policy Split Between Obama and Clinton
US News and World Report article that quotes an interview from Ann Wright.
June 17, 2016.
Regardless of politics, the next president is likely to increase the use of force in Syria, and that could mean more difficult times ahead for the Syrian people, according to Ann Wright, a former State Department official. "Unfortunately, I think from the rhetoric of Donald Trump [who favors sending ground troops to fight the Islamic State group but not Assad] and Hillary Clinton and their known stances on the use of military power to resolve essentially political issues, I think both of them will be strong for military operations in Syria to affect the change and that would be the overthrow of the Assad government," Wright said in an interview with RT cable news network. "The U.S. government still has major policies to overthrow other people's governments," she said. "And we can certainly see that that does not result in peace and tranquility for the civilian population, whether it was in Iraq, whether it is in Syria, and it will not be that way for Syria." .

March 19, 2003 -- Thirteen Years Ago Resigning Due to President Bush's War on Iraq
March 19, 2016.
When I resigned from the U.S. government 13 years ago, I had no idea where my life would go. Thirteen years later, I want to thank those in the communities of peace and social justice in the United States and around the world for welcoming me and providing me a remarkable education in the role of citizens to challenge any government's dangerous and destructive policies..

Remarkable article by the Association for Diplomat Studies and Training about my decision to resign from the U.S. Diplomatic Corps and my work as a peace activist!

UN/US intelligence got it wrong--on who was meeting-not militants, but elders! As the chief of the UN's Justice Division in Somalia, I wrote a letter to the head of UNOSOM stating that the military operation violated international law--among many other aspects of the UN's mission in Somalia..

January 12, 2016.
"The human rights violations committed against us were the illegal boarding of a U.S. flagged vessel in international waters, the assault of civilians on a U.S.-flagged vessel, physical injuries, and psychological and emotional injury," Wright, a retired U.S. army colonel and former diplomat who resigned in opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, told Common Dreams. "Some of us were assaulted, thrown onto the deck, and our faces smeared into glass blown out by Israeli grenades," Wright continued. "One person had a concussion grenade go off close to his head and is suffering eye injuries six years later. Another woman was fired at by the Israeli army with a paint bullet between her eyes, giving her a concussion.".

Interview on Hawaii Public Radio on US military bases on Okinawa & North Korea nuclear test
January 7, 2016.
From Hawaii Public Radio: Earlier this week, we talked about the opposition to the building of a Marine base in Okinawa, where there are already dozens of military bases. Shortly afterward, Retired Col. Ann Wright contacted us that she was back home in Honolulu and that one of her recent stops had been Okinawa. The former Army veteran and career diplomat became an activist after her resignation from the government in opposition to the war in Iraq in 2003. We periodically check in with her about her activities and she joined the show with her thoughts on a potential military base in Okinawa..

June 17, 2015.
Colonel Ann Wright quoted: The letter is signed by 45 veterans, the highest ranking of which is retired Army Col. Ann Wright, who also served as a diplomat in Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and elsewhere. She reopened the U.S. Embassy in Kabul in December 2001 and later resigned from the U.S. government in 2003 to protest the Iraq war. Wright told Air Force Times that she signed the letter because she is concerned about civilian casualties from drone strikes. "I have travelled to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Gaza to do talk to victims of US and Israeli drones," she said in an email to Air Force Times. "Because of the number of civilian casualties, I firmly believe that this weapon system is jeopardizing US national security and creating large numbers of people who despise the United States (and Israel for the drone use in Gaza). "I have worked with our latest generation of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and know the suffering that many of them are enduring -and I know several drone operators who tell stories of their nightmares.".

But the attack in the Gulf of Tonkin, which was used to justify the escalation of the war in Vietnam, was fabricated; we know that now. We were told we had to go to war in Iraq because of the imminent threat posed by weapons of mass destruction, which turned out not to exist. Our leaders continue to pursue illegal policies, such as rendition and torture, and then pass laws to protect themselves from prosecution. It's up to citizens to challenge our leaders..

Turkey puts Israeli Generals on Trial for Mavi Marmara Attack
The Real News 10 Minute video with interview with Ann Wright.
November 12, 2012.
Ann Wright, "The commandos coming in with violence, it's human nature if somebody's coming at me and going to beat the hell out of me, I'm going to pick up that camera right there and try to stop them. That's what people were doing on the Mavi Marmara. They had no weapons, they used chairs, they bent some poles off things, but when you're facing a force that's shooting and has already killed people, and you don't know whether they're going to kill you next, one can understand why there were some people that tried to resist. There were people who were killed on the top of the boat, on the Mavi Marmara, that were killed by snipers that were shooting from the helicopters. There was no resistance there. They were just standing there, and all of a sudden they were lying in their own pool of blood." Hassan Ghani Passengers on other boats, where there was no resistance, say they too were shot with plastic rounds, tasered and severely beaten. Many of them have been testifying in Istanbul. Ann Wright "This is the first time the evidence has been brought to a court. And it also sends a signal to other Israeli government officials, that if you follow the dictates of a political administration, and you attack and murder others, you are going to be held accountable for this - so this is a very important trial.".

November 7, 2012.
Ann Wright, a former colonel in the U.S. army, who was on one of the smaller ships, described how Israeli troops had boarded their vessel, firing paint bullets and tossing stun grenades. "After serving 29 years in the U.S. army, I retired in 2003 in opposition to the Iraq war," she told the court. "One of the reasons I went on the flotilla is that I felt compelled to challenge Israeli policy to impose an illegal blockade on Palestine and the U.S. policy to support Israel's illegal actions," she said..

November 6, 2012.
Among the plaintiffs testifying in court Tuesday was retired U.S. Army Col. Ann Wright, who was a passenger on a ship in the convoy that sought to break through the Israeli blockade around Gaza in May 2010. Speaking outside the court, Wright said she witnessed the Israeli military take over the Mavi Marmara from a different ship in the flotilla. She also described her own experience in Israeli custody. "They did everything to intimidate and humiliate us," Wright said. Tension grows between Turkey, Israel U.N. releases report on flotilla incident Read more: Flotilla raid 'regrettable' but legal, Israeli commission finds "If there is a judgment against these four people, then it really sends the signal to other Israeli officials that if you implement the criminal policies of your government that are violations of your own laws as well as international laws, then you may be held accountable. And that is a major move. That's really big," she said..

October 18, 2012.
Article by Jon Letman quotes Col Ann Wright "Retired U.S. Army Colonel Ann Wright sees RIMPAC and the growing number of multi-national joint military "exercises and engagements" in the region as an opportunity for the United States to test (and show off) its next generation of weaponry: laser-fueled, computerized, and submarine-launched drones. It's also a chance to closely assess regional capabilities while positioning the United States to more effectively "push around" other countries and persuade them to do the foreign policy and military operational bidding of the United States, Wright says. Wright, who resigned in protest of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, points to the South Korean naval base on Jeju which, when finished, will house AEGIS-equipped destroyers linked to U.S. missile defense as an example of how the United States pressures its allies to follow certain paths.".

April 16, 2012.
Our Trifecta was proposed in February by Col. Ann Wright; the weekend had earlier been intended for only the nuke-parts plant protest. Ann, now at home in Hawaii for physical therapy, joined our Trifecta on 4/15 by phone, saying, “Thank you for supporting Bradley Manning and/or whoever released documents to Wikileaks. … (At the nuke-parts plant) you are protesting the hypocrisy of U.S. policy in saying Iran and North Korea cannot have nuclear weapons. … As drones fly over Somalia, Pakistan, and the U.S., right here in Hawaii we have drones practicing flying between two sacred islands. And today, for the first time, drones are being protested at Whiteman AFB. Blessings to the beautiful kites and balloons as they fly over Whiteman Air Force Base, hopefully changing the views of the men and women who operate the drones.”.

Press Release from CODEPINK for International Delegation Travels to Guantanamo, Cuba to Protest Infamous US Prison
January 3, 2007.
International Delegation Travels to Guantanamo, Cuba to Protest Infamous US Prison Delegates include mother of current prisoner, former Guantanamo detainee, and high-level US peace activists On January 9-13, a first-ever international delegation of former prisoners, families of current prisoners, US lawyers and human rights activists will travel to Guantanamo, Cuba to hold a conference on prison abuses and march to the Cuban-side security gate of the US Naval Base to call for the closure of the illegal prison. The protest in Cuba is part of the January 11 International Day to Shut Down Guantanamo, the day that marks the 5-year anniversary of the first prisoners being sent to Guantanamo. “I am traveling all the way from Dubai because my heart is overflowing with grief over the abuse and ongoing detention of my son,” says Zohra Zewawi, who claims her son has been tortured and blinded in one eye during his detention, and has never been charged or tried. Her son was imprisoned in September 2002 and is still a prisoner in Guantanamo. Asif Iqbal, a former detainee who was freed on no charges after years of abuse, is coming to show his support for the basic rights of detainees. “All prisoners deserve humane treatment and fair trials, which is not happening in Guatanamo,” says retired US Army Colonel and delegate Ann Wright. “US federal courts, not military commissions, should hear the cases against those charged with terrorist acts and the infamous prison in Guantanamo should be immediately shut down.” The group, organizing by US groups CODEPINK: Women for Peace and Global Exchange, will hold a press conference in Havana on January 9, a conference in Guantanamo on January 10 on prison conditions and international law, and then on January 11 will march from the center of Guantanamo to the security gate of the US Naval Base where the prison is located to hold an interfaith service and call for the closing of the prison. The group will then travel to Havana to debrief the press on January 13. A smaller group will then travel to the US to lobby Congress to shut the prison, restore Habeas Corpus, repeal the Military Commissions Act, and give all detainees fair trials or release them. In both Guantanamo and Havana, the award-winning film Road to Guantanamo will be screened, with a post-showing dialogue with e film co-producer Mat Whitecross and former prisoner Asif Iqbal, whose horrific story of detention is portrayed in the docu-drama. The 12-person delegation also includes renowned US “peace mom” Cindy Sheehan whose son was killed in the war in Iraq; Adele Welty whose firefighter son was killed on 9/11; US human rights/peace leader Medea Benjamin of Global Exchange and CODEPINK; retired US Colonel and diplomat Ann Wright who resigned over the invasion of Iraq; and legal director of the US Center for Constitutional Rights Bill Goodman who has taken the cases of Guantanamo detainees to the US Supreme Court. On January 11, the International Day to Shut Down Guantanamo, protests will be held all over the world, including England, Australia and Holland. In the US major protests will take place in Washington DC and New York City, plus dozens of cities throughout the country, including outside the US Southern Command in Miami. For interviews with delegates traveling to Cuba, contact Medea Benjamin by phone or medea@globalexchange.org. For information about US and other international protests on January 11, see www.witnesstorture.org or contact Matt Daloisio, 201-264-4424. .
