Civilian casualties are commemorated in Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan, a traveling exhibition coming to the Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College for the second stop on its cross-country tour. The show features fifty 4’ x 6’ panels on parachute fabric made by an international group of artists, including participants from Queens College. The exhibition also introduces images collected by Zahir Wahab, a professor of education at Lewis and Clark College who visited Afghanistan and asked high school students to draw images from their daily reality.
The American Friends Service Committee (Kansas City, MO) has recently issued a “Report Card on Performance and Progress for the U.S. War in Afghanistan.” As with all report cards, to be meaningful, this report card must offer comments that provide details of how things are going. It must offer practical suggestions for improvement, when improvement is necessary. The AFSC report card does an excellent job, in my opinion, of providing important details and of offering sensible, practical recommendations for improvement.
WarNewsRadio, a college station in the Philadelphia suburbs, covers the opening of "Windows and Mirrors" the traveling art exhibit that draws attention to the enormous human cost of the war in Afghanistan. The AFSC's Karen Light weighs in.

AFSC's contribution to the Mission Cultural Center's Day of the Dead exhibit by Art Hazelwood and Juan Fuentes. The boots and names on the wall represent Latino Californians killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
More than 200 pairs of boots belonging to Illinois soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq will be onstage as part of Harper College’s fall production of “Bury the Dead,” a play offering perspectives from major U.S. military conflicts dating to World War I.
The production, which opens a day after Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 12 tells the story of six dead soldiers who rise from the grave, asking to rejoin the living.
Today, on the 9th anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan, we began to receive reports of banners carrying messages of resistance against the seemingly endless war and occupation being dropping in prominent spots around the city. Many of the banners where made during a series of art parties that we hosted to help promote a day to defend public education in Georgia.
While the AFSC does not encourage the illegal dropping of banners we also do not condemn it.
