On the 11th Anniversary of the War in Afghanistan, SDS Demands an End to All Wars and Occupations. All Out the Week of Oct. 7th!

For too long the United States and allied forces have been fighting an imperialist war in Afghanistan. Today, most children born in the United States the year of the invasion of Afghanistan are beginning 5th grade. The murder of countless Afghan people in this imperialist war is a crime against humanity. The amount of resources that have been expended to crush Afghanistan, one of the poorest nations in the world, is truly staggering.. Students for a Democratic Society demand the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghan soil.
