As the 11th anniversary of the U.S./NATO occupation of
Afghanistan nears, the danger of new and wider wars in the
Middle East is on the rise. In Afghanistan and neighboring
Pakistan, the death toll continues to mount. In April,
Washington announced a plan to stay in Afghanistan until 2024.

Persian/Arabian Gulf, and leaders in both Washington and its
main regional ally, Israel, threaten Iran with an all-out

other countries on Earth combined!
Only a powerful people’s movement can turn this situation
around. Join us on Oct. 7 in the streets of Chicago and many
other cities across the country and around the world.
