An Evening of Mobilization Against the War in Afghanistan
15th St Friends Meeting House (15 Rutherford Place)
Malalai Joya, the outspoken female politician and member of the Afghan parliament,
and American combat veterans from the conflict in Afghanistan,
will discuss the reality of the war, its consequences for the Afghan people and the effects on our troops.
Sponsored by The Nation Institute, Iraq Veterans Against the War, Mark Kurlansky (author of Non-Violence: The History of a Dangerous Idea) and Veteran war correspondent and Institute Fellow Chris Hedges, (author of War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning)
At a time when our military commanders concede that we are rapidly losing ground to the Taliban insurgents, it is vital that we recognize the consequences of the war and the dangerous direction it could take if we permit further military escalation.
The event is free and open to the public.
