Please Take Action*
Against Escalating the Afghanistan War!

GLN permalink 11-28-2009

This Tuesday night President Obama looks set to announce a dramatic U.S. “surge” in the war in Afghanistan.

Tens of thousands more troops for a war that is over 8 years old and a certified disaster for Afghani civilians and Western troops alike.

Despite a growing anti-war majority in the United States, many of whom voted for him, a few days ago President Obama promised to continue the war until “victory.” All the while supporting a thoroughly corrupt local government detested by many of the people it claims to represent.

Please join the Gay Liberation Network and dozens of other Chicago area organizations in Emergency Response Actions demanding:

Bring all the troops home now!
Funding for human needs, not war!

5 PM, Wednesday, December 2nd
Federal Plaza
(corner of Adams & Dearborn Streets)
In response to the President’s “surge” announcement the night before

…and a follow-up action:

12 Noon, Saturday, December 5th
Federal Plaza
(corner of Adams & Dearborn Streets)

Please help spread the word by joining our Facebook event group for the actions: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=167820978446
