Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorBarbara Hayes
Oct. 7th marks the anniversary of the day that the U.S. and British launched a military offensive in Afghanistan. President Obama has expanded the U.S. military presence there by 21,000. His military advisers want to send even more troops and there is no exit strategy in sight. What is really needed in Afghanistan? Has the U..S. presence there helped to halt the resurgence of the Taliban or to fuel it? Stephen Zunes, will put the conflict in historical perspective and speak to the issues involved. Shamsia, who works with orphans in Kabul, will talk about the conditions and needs of civilians.

Local artist Eiljah Pfotenhauer will paint the event as it is occurring, which will be sold by auction after the speeches.

Sponsored by the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and the Resource Center for Nonviolence.
