Protesting the 10th year Anniversary of the US Invasion of Afghanistan
by Debra Sweet, National Director of World Can't Wait For Ten Years the Richest Country in the World Has Been "At War" With the Poorest Country in the World
Several thousand people have signed up to be at Freedom Square in Washington DC on Thursday October 6. This day was chosen because it's the precise 10 year anniversary of Bush's invasion of Afghanistan and the launching of the whole "Global War on Terror" which has resulted in over a million deaths in Iraq, untold thousands of deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan, millions displaced from their homes, and institutionalized torture. We will never be at peace with being at war and pledge to the world these crimes will be stopped.
October 6 is a "work" day, and a day we can expect maximum coverage of the war. Join World Can't Wait there!
