Demonstrations

Protest
19 Years of U.S. War in Afghanistan
October 7, 2020

This will be an in-person demonstration
Wednesday, October 7, 2020
4:30 to 6 pm
Manhattan Bridge Plaza at Canal and Bowery
(just two blocks from the WRL office)

On this 19th anniversary of the U.S. war in Afghanistan, we will demonstrate our opposition to it as well as all other U.S. wars and the government’s war on the climate, the economy, and the poor. We demand the Pentagon budget be slashed to pay reparations to victims and for other human needs.

Please join us on the Manhattan Bridge Plaza at Bowery and Canal as we hold banners and signs facing the evening rush hour traffic across the bridge and pedestrians in the neighborhood. Bring your own signs and banners but make sure they are simple and clearly lettered enough to be read by car traffic.

Sponsors: NYC War Resisters League, Brooklyn For Peace, Peace Action New York State, Peace Action of Staten Island, World Can’t Wait, Catholic Worker NYC, Kairos Community, Peace Action Bay Ridge, Veterans for Peace/Chapter 34, NYC Metro Raging Grannies, Granny Peace Brigade NYC, Green Party of Brooklyn (list in formation)

On our Facebook event page, selection “going” if plan to attend.
