End the Afghanistan War

On October 7, 2001, the U.S. launched a military strike against Afghanistan. Now 17 years later, tens of thousands are dead, even more wounded, millions displaced, and more than $2,400 billion spent, this war — the longest war in U.S. history — shows no sign of ending.

Assemble at noon for a vigil on this 17th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, followed by a solemn march to the Times Square military recruiting station for a demonstration against endless wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, northern Africa with U.S. special forces operating secretly in dozens of other countries.
