SF Protest on 8th Anniversary of the War in Afghanistan
On October 7th, over 250 people came out to the New Federal Building in San Francisco on the 8th anniversary of the war and occupation of Afghanistan. While the Obama Administration, the Pentagon Generals and Congress argue over the degree to expand the war they are losing, this protest called to end the war now. The demonstration was called by the ANSWER Coalition and supported by many Bay Area progressive organizations. Among the speakers at the rally was San Francisco 8 defendant Francisco Torres.
