Wall Street Is War Street
On the 10th Anniversary of U.S. War in Afghanistan
NO to Endless WARS!
Sat. OCT. 15,
Noon Rally at Wall Street and Broadway
March to Occupy Wall Street Encampment
Liberty & Broadway
Oct. 15 is a day of nationally coordinated antiwar actions in cities across the U.S., the 10th anniversary of the massively destructive and criminal U.S. war on Afghanistan.
When the U.S. government began its attack on Afghanistan 10 years ago, President Bush called it a “war on terror.” It was followed by 8 years of U.S. war in Iraq and now war in Libya and drone wars on Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Sudan under Pres. Obama. These are all wars for oil, resources, and markets in the interests of corporate power.
At the same time, the U.S. government is carrying out attacks on working people within the U.S., cutting back on health care and education while bailing out the Wall St. banks and insurance companies. Every time people call for money for social services, we are told there is no money, but the government always finds money for its wars. It is increasing repression on Muslims, on Black and Latino youth, and on those who protest, as the FBI raids on anti-war demonstrators and the NYPD attacks on the peaceful Occupy Wall St. demonstrators show.
Join us in a march to demand an end to U.S. wars in Afghanistan & Iraq, an end to U.S. aid to Israel, an end to U.S. bombing and destruction in Libya, and an end to the growing repression at home.
