AFSC Atlanta blog: Banners Invade the Atlanta Sky

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.

Lost in the debate over the U.S. role in Afghanistan is the significant toll the war has taken on Afghan civilians. The American Friends Service Committee hopes Thursday’s “Windows and Mirrors” art exhibit will help to shine a light on the thousands of Afghan civilians killed since the U.S. attacked Afghanistan nine years ago.
