SAT: 22nd Anniversary of US Invasion in Afghanistan – Protest Endless War!
October 7 @ 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM
Join us for a vigil and walk to protest ENDLESS WAR on this anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. October 7, 2001, beginning the so-called “war on terror,” which has continued for 22 years with U.S. covert and overt military actions in multiple countries. The heightened militarism around the world and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has renewed fears of nuclear war.
The protest begins at noon on the 14th Street steps in Union Square (Manhattan), following the 11 am Yemen vigil in the same location.
