Special solidarity statement against FBI harassment of anti-war activists.
In December the Obama Administration will conduct a review of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. This follows the announcement at the November NATO conference that the war will continue for perhaps years to come.
Over the past year, the U.S. war in Afghanistan has dramatically escalated, with huge increases in civilian and military casualties. The U.S. is now deploying battle tanks to Afghanistan. The war is also expanding into Pakistan.
It is estimated that the escalation of this war costs $57,077 per minute. At the same time, millions of people in the U.S. are facing unemployment, the loss of their homes to foreclosure and drastic cuts in needed human services.
The majority of the people of the U.S. are against the war. It is up to us, the people, to insist that this war end and that the troops and war dollars be brought home NOW.
Join with others in Minneapolis on Saturday, December 18, to say: End the War in Afghanistan! The December 18 event will be a visible display of peace and anti-war sentiment with signs, banners and anti-war holiday carols.
December 18 Peace Action. Initiated by Iraq Peace Action Coalition for more information, call 612-522-1861 or 612-827-5364.
