Announcement :: War and Militarism
Not One More Death, Not One More Dollar for War!
19 Feb 2010
All out to commemorate 1000 US servicepeople dead in Afghanistan.
After the 1000th death occurs -
5pm at Park Street Station.
998 U.S. service men and women have died so far in the U.S. war in Afghanistan. Boston area peace advocates, military family members, and veterans will gather to remember the Americans, Afghans and others who have lost their lives in this futile conflict, and to call for an immediate end to the war. The timing of the event will be announced after the 1000th death occurs, but it will probably be Monday or Tuesday, February 22 or 23, 5pm at Park Street Station.

In the ninth year of war, increased foreign troop levels and increasing national resistance to their presence has escalated the violence in Afghanistan, making life less safe both for the occupied and occupier. Almost one-third of the 998 U.S. deaths, 317, took place last year, and deaths this year are on a pace to record even more.
