AMERICAN FRIENDS SERVICE COMMITTEE, GREG COLERIDGE (Sorry about tech./ sound difficulties midway through)
WHERE: The Federal Building, E. 9th and Lakeside
WHY: It's been nearly ten years that we have endured, and the world has endured, the U.S. "War on Terror." With 100's of thousands killed; millions displaced, injured, raped, or tortured; and trillions of dollars wasted on wars, it is time to rethink the violent military strategy of our government. Now, with the announced death of Osama Bin Laden, the embodiment of the pretext for the "war on terror," there have been national calls to bring the troops home!
SAY WHAT? A message to our elected officials, that we want the troops home;economic conversion from a war economy to a domestic economy, for jobs, education, health, and infrastructure; and an end to the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Columbia, and Libya.
