Video: Speakers From Portland 10 Year Anniversary of War in Afghanistan

Dynamic speakers from the October 15, 2011 Portland 10 Year Anniversary of War in Afghanistan Rally and March. Rally was held at the South Park Blocks, where a large crowd gathered and then marched through the streets of downtown Portland, cruising by the Occupy Portland sites.
Speakers addressed the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as the immoral and illegal actions of the United States regarding drone attacks on Pakistan and Yemen.
The many reasons for the Populist Occupy Wall Street Movement were also enumerated. This 1984-ish Endless War is only one reason among many demonstrating how our country has been moving in the wrong direction for decades, swerving from a Democracy into Empire.
This is addressed from many angles: from the soldiers who fight the wars; from those who assert the rights of the Palestinians to survive and have their own country: from the Socialist perspective analyzing the evils and greed of Capitalist economies.

Most remarks are brief, under ten minutes in length.
