NO TROOP SURGE IN AFGHANISTAN! How about some peace with that Nobel Prize?!

PROTEST: Tuesday, December 1, 2009
RALLY: 11:45 AM, WWU Red Square
MARCH: 12:45 PM

Initiated by the Bellingham Socialist Alternative, co-sponsored by Whatcom
Peace & Justice Center, and endorsed by Food Not Bombs.

President Obama will be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10th --
he is leaning toward sending more troops to Afghanistan, escalating the war!
After 8 years of war, $228 billion has been sunk into Afghanistan, 920 U.S.
soldiers have been killed and thousands wounded, and thousands of Afghan
civilians have been killed or permanently disabled.

--Do NOT send more troops into an unjust, unwinnable war!
--Bring all the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan NOW!
--Money for jobs and education, not war!
