ANTI-WAR RALLY
MARKING THE 11TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE AFGHANISTAN WAR

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2012

4:00 – 5:30 PM AT THE FEDERAL BUILDING

•       Obama “ended” the war in Iraq…but an army of US contractors
remains – and violence in Iraq has hit a two-year peak, with 88 people
killed  in 30 attacks across the country in a single day.

•     84,000 American troops remain in war-torn Afghanistan. Every day one U.S.
soldier is killed in combat and another commits suicide.

•       From June 2004 til mid-September 2012, between 2,562 and 3,325
people were killed in drone strikes in Pakistan alone, including 474
civilians and 176 children.

•       We are spending $2 billion dollars per week on war in Afghanistan –
instead of on our devastated communities, our schools, our jobs, our health care.
