President Obama is likely to announce on Tuesday, December 1, an escalation in Afghanistan

SDCPJ calls for a Demonstration The Day After his announcement

35,000 new US occupation troops next year

$35 billion more to pay for the war and occupation

We don’t yet know the details of the Afghanistan escalation, but these headlines are the best guess we have now, based on White House leaks.

We are in the deepest economic crisis in over 70 years, with the highest unemployment rates in living memory, and deep cuts in education and social services. We should not be forced to tighten our belts to pay for their imperial adventures.

Do you think things are headed in the wrong direction? We in the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice think so, and we know that many of you agree with us.

Join us on the day after Obama announces his war escalation plan. We will gather in front of Congressional Representative Susan Davis‘ office to demand that she oppose any funding for the wars and occupations.

The Day After
(probably Wednesday, December 2)
5-6 pm

in front of Susan Davis’ office
University Avenue and Fairmount Avenue
City Heights , San Diego

End the Occupation of Afghanistan Now!
Healthcare, Jobs and Education – No to War and Occupation!

Tell you friends, coworkers, neighbors and fellow students! Bring your signs and banners! Spread the word! Bring candles and flashlights! Be there!

San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice –

I would support this if we were conquering other nations and not just wasting money. We should take over an oil bearing nation or two and be done with it.

Hell, let’s take over everything. That is what large military is for. For making other nations pay tribute by choice or by force.

Give me a few weeks at the big ole red button and you will see the strife end. It’s like out military is the World Police and our police are citizen harassers.

Hel-looo Jon Quate – haven’t heard from you in quite a while. These are strange and difficult times. Please read my “Dilemma of the Disenchanted Progressive.”
