Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, to say, “Bring the Troops Home Now! We need jobs, not war!”
More than 40 years ago, in the midst of another U.S. colonial war, Dr. Martin Luther King said, “The bombs in Vietnam explode at home; they destroy the hopes and possibilities for a decent America.” This is even more true today, as working people face the largest financial crisis since the Great Depression.
The Office of Management and Budget has determined that the escalation will cost up to $1 million dollars per additional troop — another $35 billion on top of the billions already spent on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need this money for a real jobs program and health care, not more death and destruction in Afghanistan.
All progressive and antiwar organizations are invited to come, bring signs, speak, and join in in a united effort to demand, “Troops Out Now!”
Called by the International Action Center and the Troops Out Now Coalition
