Troops Home Now from Afghanistan!
Stop the Escalation!

[image: Say No to Escalation]
President Obama is considering sending more American troops to fight in
Afghanistan.

But this war isn’t making Americans safer. It is not bringing development,
democracy, security, or women’s rights to Afghanistan. It is killing Afghan
civilians and U.S./NATO troops. It is stealing badly needed funds from
housing, jobs, health care, and climate protection.

Call the White House Comment line 202-456-1111 and call your Congressperson
at 202-224-3121 or 202-225-3121.   Tell them NO to escalation and withdraw
U.S. troops.

If President Obama announces an escalation of troop levels in Afghanistan on
Tuesday night, peace and justice activists will protest Wednesdaay from 5-7
p.m.

Fountain, near Park Street Station.  Bring banners, signs, costumes, musical
