We will tell President Obama "No You Can't!" send more US troops to Afghanistan
Anti-War Rally set for Saturday, December 12th from 11:00 am to 4 pm at the White House
Washington, DC - Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) will join former Rep. Cynthia McKinney, former Sen. Mike Gravel, Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly, and a host of antiwar leaders for an emergency rally in Lafayette Park this Saturday.
We will demand that President Obama announce an immediate ceasefire in Iraq and Afghanistan to end the wars and order our troops home. The President must stop Predator drone attacks and covert operations in Pakistan, and begin immediate reconstruction and recovery in war torn regions. Too many people have suffered and died.
If the President does not meet these demands, we promise intensified opposition, with anti-war candidates prepared to defeat his war policy.
We are a new coalition of antiwar organizations, peace and justice advocates, and citizens of conscience who challenge our elected leaders to end the US wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq and bring our troops home. See our website, http://www.enduswars.org for more information on the protest and a complete list of speakers.
