Rosemarie Milazzo.

Maryknoll Sr Rosemarie Milazzo recently returned to the U.S. after spending three months in Iraq with the international organization Christian Peacemaker Teams. Milazzo was part of a four-member team based in Sulaimani, in the autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq. The group documented human rights violations against women and ethnic Kurds, accompanied villagers living in conflicted border areas, protested against oil drilling on traditional farmland, and joined local partners in Iraq to demonstrate against violence and injustice throughout the region. Milazzo said, "You can't call yourself a Christian if you don't spend as much time and money on making peace as is spent on making war"
