Thursday, October 06, 2011: Protest to End 10 YEARS of US Occupation of Afghanistan

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 18 August 2011

by Debra Sweet, Director of World Can't Wait                                                                                                                                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.  It's a "work" day, and a day we can expect maximum coverage of the war.  Join World Can't Wait there!  On the website:

"I pledge that if any U.S. troops, contractors, or mercenaries remain in Afghanistan on Thursday, October 6, 2011, as that occupation goes into its 11th year, I will commit to being inFreedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., with others on that day or the days immediately following, for as long as I can, with the intention of making it our Tahrir Square, Cairo, our Madison, Wisconsin, where we will NONVIOLENTLY resist the corporate machine by occupying Freedom Plaza to demand that America's resources be invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation. We can do this together. We will be the beginning."
