Another high-tech massacre
Occupation soldiers stand around a group of Afghan civilians, including several children.
Yesterday, 27 Afghan civilians were killed and 14 wounded in yet another round of NATO airstrikes. Their convoy of three vehicles, which included women and children, was hit on its way to Kandahar province. The massacre comes just a week after 12 Afghans were killed by a missile, and another five in an airstrike.
The Pentagon has been bragging about new rules of engagement designed to "protect civilian lives," yet more than 50 Afghan civilians have been killed by U.S./NATO forces during the past two weeks. As long as Afghanistan is under occupation, the bloodshed will continue.
On March 20, people across the United States will converge on Washington, D.C. There will be joint demonstrations in San Francisco and Los Angeles. We will demand, "No Colonial-type Wars and Occupations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Haiti!" We will march together to say, "No War Against Iran!" We will demand money for jobs, free and universal health care, decent schools, and affordable housing.
