On Saturday, October 17, the antiwar demonstration at Copley Square made a loud and proud statement that the peace and justice movement is alive and well! We were joined by 40 peace actions throughout the United States yesterday and by Afghanistan-themed demonstrations and events on October 5 in Washington and on October 7 throughout the nation.
The Afghanistan war was in the forefront of everyone's minds, based on the signs, banners, tables, songs, and speeches. By calling for "Troops Out now" we registered beyond question that there is organized opposition to this war, a movement that is determined enough to dig in for the long haul.
