October Actions Against the War in Afghanistan 2009

October 5, 2009: Direct Action at the White House

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.

A Benefit for the War Resisters League

WRL Track Club Invitation

War Resisters League Track Club logo

War, Empire and the Economy Got You Down?

We have the Solution!

Don’t Just Stand There…. Run!

The War Resisters League Track Club is committed to building community and building muscles, and we want to run with you.

After a decade long (or so) hiatus, we reformed in 2009, and ran the Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon and two winter 15Ks in New York City.

Now we’re gearing up for another year of running and resisting war.

Afghanistan Escalation 2009

As the war in Afghanistan has entered into its ninth year and as President Obama has issued orders for a swift deployment over the next six months of 30,000 additional US troops, WRL calls on its members and supporters in a moment of national urgency.

By promising a timetable for troop withdrawl alongside an escalation of war in Afghanistan, Obama has made no decisons to end war and it is clear that timetables are not enough. Join WRL in sending a strong message to the Obama administration that war is not peace!

CALL TO ACTION:

Join Witness Against Torture January 11-22, 2010 in a Fast and Vigil to Shut Down Guantanamo, End Torture and Build Justice

"I believe strongly that torture is not moral, legal or effective." Guantanamo is "a damaging symbol to the world... a rallying cry for terrorist recruitment and harmful to our national security, so closing it is important for our national security."
-Admiral Dennis Blair, January 2009.
