March on Obama 2012 Headquarters To Protest the Wars!!

October 8th Protest Marks 10 YEARS Of America's Longest-Ever War

GLN permalink 9-28-2011

October 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the United States invasion of Afghanistan - America's longest war - the "good war" that President Obama counter-posed to President Bush's "bad war" in Iraq.

The overwhelming majority of Afghanis are sick of the death and destruction in their country and want the U.S. out now. The American war on Afghanistan is bankrupting the U.S., with soaring military budgets and record deficits since 911, and the hollowing out of jobs-producing industries and social services. Yet the callous response from many politicians to these problems has been to scapegoat working people – immigrants, teachers, and public sector workers in general.

This march -- and forthcoming actions against the G8 and NATO in Chicago next year -- are part of an effort to organize a genuine alternative to the broken promises and lies of politicians from both major parties.

With that in mind, we invite you to join the Gay Liberation Network and over 50 other endorsing organizations to participate a march on Obama 2012 National Campaign Headquarters in Chicago on the 10th anniversary of America's longest war beginning at 12 noon, Saturday, October 8 at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Congress Parkway demanding:

U.S./NATO Out of Afghanistan NOW!
