Local Actions Show Grassroots Support for Ending Afghanistan War

Posted by robertgreenwald on August 10th, 2010

The movement to rethink the Afghanistan War is picking up steam, as demonstrated by the local Veterans for Peace chapter’s action on the beach in Santa Barbara on August 8.

From the KEYT story:

The recent wave of violence and rising American deaths in Afghanistan are causing many people in Santa Barbara to rethink their attitude toward the Afghan War.

That was the theme of a major demonstration at the beach today.

More than 1,200 crosses were set up on the beach next to Stearns Wharf. And the strong public reaction to the memorial may be an indication that more and more Americans are actually beginning to rethink Afghanistan.

Way to go, folks!

If you want to get together with your neighbors to organize against the war, join or host a Rethink the Afghanistan War Meetup. Hundreds of Meetups are already planned, but it will take all of us working together in our communities to end this costly, brutal conflict.

You can plug into the larger Rethink Afghanistan movement on Facebook. We hope you’ll join us.
