Vivid, insightful, and often in the participants’ own words, Beyond the Green Zone goes past the polished desks of the corporate media and Washington politicians to tell first hand of the reality of life under U.S. occupation.
From the Foreword by Amy Goodman and Dennis Moynihan:
“Dahr Jamail is truly courageous. He has taken great risks in the service of the truth. He has tirelessly told the stories of the victims, proud people in dire straits, writing with poignancy and immediacy, with eloquence and accuracy. If only the corporate networks would devote a small percentage of their resources to the type of reporting that Dahr Jamail accomplishes with next to nothing. The prospect of such a media system depends on the demands and activism of the public, a public that holds the networks, the reporters, and elected officials accountable, and a public that supports independent media.”
Dahr Jamail's reporting from Iraq has been published in newspapers and magazines worldwide. He has appeared on Democracy Now! as a regular guest, as well as BBC, Pacifica Radio, and numerous other networks. In June 2006, Dahr was a featured speaker at the World Peace Forum in Vancouver.
