Protest the escalation of the Afghanistan War
Federal Bldg, 200 El Liberty, Oct 7, 12 noon
We will gather on the steps of the Federal Building to raise our voices against the imperialist war led by the US on Afghanistan. Activists wishing to speak will be welcome to do so but are asked to limit their speeches to 3 minutes.
Sponsored by Washtenaw Reds.
For more information: Catherine Wilkerson
Friday, Oct. 6 from noon to 1 PM, at Trump Tower in downtown White Plains, NY
Please join us to protest the U.S. war in Afghanistan, a war that began on October 6, 16 years ago, and a war that has become, in many ways, a forgotten, permanent war.
Although every day Afghan people are being killed by U.S. ground and air attacks, and the social life of the country is being ravaged, the Afghanistan War is blacked out from U.S. television screens. Even on MSNBC, the supposedly progressive channel, there is essentially no mention of this expanding war, as it is buried under layers of reporting on hurricanes, deportation of “dreamers”, Trump’s legal and emotional problems and Congressional shenanigans.
In protesting the Afghanistan War, we are demanding that attention be paid to the relentless day-to-day U.S. slaughter of Afghan people. Surely, there is a place for this in the American consciousness.
