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.
The only way to end the 9 years of war is a ceasefire, negotiations and the withdrawal of all NATO and US troops.
EndAfghanistanWar.com is a new website launched by US national peace groups, to help organize and publicize local events to voice our opposition, educate our neighbors and continue to pressure our elected officials to end the war.
