March 18: Chicago to Protest Ongoing WARS!

A march will take place on March 18 in Chicago's leading South Asian neighborhood to protest ongoing U.S. wars:

3 PM, Sunday March 18
Devon Avenue & Hoyne Street
Chicago
The event is cosponsored by: Pakistan Federation of America, Pakhtun Jirga, Pakistan United Parade Committee and the Midwest Anti-War Mobilization. Please "join" the Facebook page for this event and "invite friends" as widely as possible!


A particular focus of this march will be the militarization of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other countries by U.S. drones. I have written frequently about the threat of drones:

The Obamoid and the Eva Test
Obama Nobel Peace Prize - REVOKED!
VAU Afgh 101: Extrajudicial Executions
Not Your Father's Antiwar Movement
I { love | hate } the Chicago Air & Water Show
Drones, Dronespeak, and Death TV: "Intense"
The Drone-Pandora Connection (and I'm not talking about music)
Drones, 1984, and Foucault's Panopticon

So ... on March 18 ... please plan to participate in this important event!

And DRONES are just part of the larger problem: the urgent need to DEMILITARIZE Afghanistan!
