Now we find out why #AfghanistanTuesday is so important.
The 10th anniversary of the start of the Afghanistan War is behind us, with massive protests in Chicago and elsewhere. Occupy Wall Street has gotten people into the streets in cities across the country and around the world. In short succession, we will confront the 10th anniversary of Guantanamo, the anniversary of the Iraq invasion and the that of the Libyan intervention, the NATO/G8 protests in Chicago, and the 2012 presidential election. And on top of all of this, daily outrages continue, like the Awlaki extrajudicial execution and the introduction of U.S. military "advisors" into Uganda.
But our work with respect to Afghanistan is far from over. Now, more than ever, we need to assemble every week -- in growing numbers -- to lift our voices together in opposition to continued U.S. occupation of Afghanistan.
It may get loud . . . .
