The keep dying....
On October 7, 2001, the U.S. and Britain invaded Afghanistan--and the war on Afghanistan continues today, with President Obama, the "anti-war candidate," increasing the number of troops. In early October the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance (NCNR) will mark the anniversary and speak out against the war with a permitted rally and march on October 4, followed by direct action risking arrest on Monday, October 5. Activists will attempt to deliver a petition asking President Obama to end the war. The petition will include the following points: remove all troops; assist with international efforts to rebuild the severely damaged infrastructure; increase medical support for those injured by our war on the population; close Bagram Prison; and end torture. We are in the early stages of planning this event and more information will follow. If you would like to be involved or help with the planning, please see: www.nogoodwar.org or www.iraqpledge.org
