Let's tell Senators Kerry and Brown:

  • Bring the troops home in 2011
  • Move money from the Pentagon to our communities
  • Hands off Social Security

Tell our Senators that it is unacceptable to make our armed forces, their families, and their friends wait any longer to bring the troops home from Afghanistan.

Demand that the hundreds of billions of dollars pouring into the coffers of war profiteers be redirected where they're needed—to create jobs, save jobs, and sustain the public services we need.

Social Security is the cornerstone of a just and fair society. Very few people can afford to be without it.

Brown Bag Vigil, Boston, October 2010

President Obama says the Afghanistan war will continue until at least 2014.   Peace Action delivered letters to Sen. Kerry at the October and November vigils calling on him to hold hearings and turn US policy toward negotiations and troop withdrawals.   And he has agreed to do so -- but he's targeting the wrong topics. We will continue to press the point.

Sponsored by UJP Afghanistan Task Force, Massachusetts Peace Action, Progressive Democrats of America, Veterans for Peace/Smedley Butler Brigade, and Fund Our Communities/Cut Military Spending 25%.    Email us at ujpcoalition@gmail.com.
