Kimberly Rivera, a conscientious objector and Iraq War resister, is currently on base at Fort Carson, Colorado, awaiting information on her case as well as further orders from her commanding officers.
Last month, Kim complied with the Canadian government’s deportation order and spent time in the Lewis County Jail in Lowville, N.Y. She was arrested after voluntarily crossing into the U.S. and detained at Ft. Drum, N.Y. She had been in Canada since 2007 with her family.
“Kim Rivera’s refusal to participate in an ‘illegal’ war and her courageous decision to come to Canada was not only an act of peace, it was her duty,” Ken Marciniec, a spokesman for the War Resisters Support Campaign (WRSP), said in a statement.
