U.S. Troops Need to Leave Afghanistan. Now. Stop the Occupations. Pay Reparations.
World Can't Wait and others are responding to the killings yesterday in Afghanistan that at least one US Army staff sergeant is alleged to have carried out. 16 Afghan civilians including children were killed inside homes, in 2 villages, in completely unprovoked aggression, according to witnesses.
Here, villagers protest outside the U.S. base in the Panjwai District of Kandahar Province, Afghanistan.
We are devoting full attention today to this incident, because it so embodies what's wrong with the US occupation of Afghanistan. Join a vigil, write to the media in response to this coverage - speak out. Even if you're on spring break! Send your post and we'll publish more.
