Add comment on:Afghans for Peace Rally on the 11th Anniversary of the Afghanistan War, Oakland, 10/7/12: video & photos
With a series of actions on both sides of the bay, Decolonize the New World 2012 highlighted the history of resistance to colonialism and imperialism in the 500 years since Christopher Columbus landed in the "new world". On the third day of protests, falling both on Indigenous People's Day (Columbus Day) and the 11th anniversary of the Afghanistan war, Afghans for peace called for solidarity with a rally and march in Oakland. Speakers at the rally confronted injustices and inhumanities from the half a millenium of violent oppression and economic exploitation of indigenous peoples in the Americas to the U.S. military and capitalist occupation of Afghanistan (full video below).
