Last weekend’s actions to demand an end to the ten years of US/NATO war against Afghanistan had a new energy and, here in Chicago, our protest was larger than in years. See photos on our Chicago World Can’t Wait Facebook page, a slideshow on the Sun-Times website, and reports from around the country.
Today, October 15, is another day of nationally coordinated anti-war actions marking the tenth anniversary of relentless US attacks on Afghanistan. In New York, there will be a “March to Wall Street = War Street.” Here in Chicago, we will be joining Global Occupy Day with Occupy Chicago, saying “No More Wars on the World’s 99% – Stop The Crimes of the US Government” with our new flyer. Come join the celebration, starting tonight at 6:30 pm at Jackson & LaSalle St. in Chicago. Meet up with us to spread the World Can’t Wait anti-war message.
The Chicago chapter of World Can’t Wait will be meeting this Monday evening, October 17, at 6:30 pm at Nesh Cafe, making plans to spread resistance and end the occupations of empire. December 10 is International Human Rights Day, and January 11, 2012, is the tenth anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo. Far from closing it as he promised, Pres Obama has announced that military commissions are back in operation and one detainee will even face the death penalty. A national mobilization has begun to demand its closure, an end to indefinite detention, military commissions, and torture. Sign up to participate in a human chain of 2,771 people in orange jumpsuits in Washington, DC.
