Millions of Americans voted for Barack Obama in November hoping for an end to U.S. wars in the Middle East. But Washington is sending more troops to Afghanistan and continues to bolster Israeli apartheid. The occupation of Iraq is not being ended, but repackaged. And the military budget is bigger than ever!Added to the calendar on Friday Apr 10th, 2009 3:13 PM
The Campus Antiwar Network invites all student activists and groups to participate in the Bay Area CAN Conference.
