Families who lost loved ones on September 11 responded with, “Our grief is not a cry for war!” and “War is not the answer!” That was true then and even truer now. Take action right now by sending a letter to Congress, urging your representatives to support legislation for U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
And on October 7 – 10, members of the War Resisters League along with people and organizations all over the world are marking the commemoration of the nine-year U.S.-NATO occupation of Afghanistan by taking internationally coordinated action in their own communties.
What can you do?
