Upcoming demonstrations against the escalation of the Afghanistan war

The ANSWER Coalition has joined with six other national anti-war organizations and issued an appeal asking people to take immediate action in their communities against the war in Afghanistan the very day that the Obama administration announces its plans to expand the war. In some cities, actions are planned for the day following the announcement.

The following is a list of actions currently planned. Please let us know of demonstrations being organized in your area by clicking here.
