War Resister Kimberly Rivera released from prison

December 15th, 2013

War resister Kimberly Rivera was released from prison on December 12, 2013. Kim was sentenced to 14 months in prison, and served 10 months, for her refusal to participate in the US’s invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Kim came to Canada seeking refuge, but was forced out by the Conservative government in September 2012. She was immediately arrested at the border, then court martialed. Now Kim will finally be reunited with her young children who she has not seen since her arrest.
