The ANSWER Coalition has joined with six other national anti-war organizations and issued an appeal asking people to take immediate action in their communities against the war in Afghanistan the very day that the Obama administration announces its plans to expand the war.

The war in Afghanistan is a colonial-type war. There are more than 140 armed organizations fighting against the occupation. That is a clear indication that the Afghan people view the U.S./NATO invasion as colonial-type occupation force.

The U.S. war effort is doomed. Tens of thousands more troops will be sent into the country because the Pentagon cannot figure out what else to do. The continued war and its escalation threaten the lives of untold thousands of Afghan people and U.S. soldiers.

The ANSWER Coalition is demanding the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan as well as Iraq.

SF protest is co-sponsored by Bay Area chapters of World Can’t Wait, Code Pink, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition and others.
