Join coordinated actions across the U.S. in October marking the 9th anniversary of the Afghanistan war

March 20, 2010 - End the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq

Actions initiated and supported by the ANSWER Coalition will take place to mark the ninth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan.

The war in Afghanistan, like the war in Iraq, is a colonial war to secure massive profits for a handful of bankers and corporate owners. It is also a war that the Pentagon will allow to drag on endlessly if we don't continue to fight back.

Every day of this war is a catastrophe for the people of Afghanistan. Every day of this war is also a catastrophe for many U.S. troops. The troops being killed in Afghanistan are young people who had no access to a college education, working people put out of a job in the unemployment crisis, and parents who need health care and housing.

Please see below for a listing of events. Email [email protected] to have the event in your city listed on the ANSWER website.
