Join the War Resisters League in saying “No to War in Afghanistan. No to Torture and Vengeance.” The War Resisters League is standing with other organizations and communities to mark eight years of war and destruction in Afghanistan, to say no to war and torture, and to call on the Obama administration to listen to the Afghan people, to surge peace and development and justice, not war and troops.
