International Days of Action to End the Afghanistan War

9 Years: War is not the answer!

On October 7 – 10, peace and justice groups around the world will mark the 9th year of the launch of the Afghanistan war with internationally coordinated local, grassroots, and community events.

Families who lost love ones on September 11 responded with, ”Our grief is not a cry for war!” and “War is not the answer!”

That was true then and even truer now. Now a growing majority believes that war in Afghanistan is and was a mistake and must come to an end.
