Commemorate 10 years of the war in Afghanistan
Thursday, October 6, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
At the corner of Georgia & Hamilton (in front of the main CBC Building)
On October 7, 2001, the US-led bombing of Afghanistan began. Ten years later, the disastrous NATO war and occupation continues, taking a heavy toll in human life. Contrary to some media coverage, Canada’s role in the occupation of Afghanistan *is not over*, with approximately 1,000 military personnel still stationed in the country.
So we will gather on this 10th anniversary of the war to remember all the victims and to renew our call for an end to the war, and for a real and complete end to Canadian involvement in the occupation of Afghanistan.
Our event will take place on Oct. 6 in Vancouver, which is early morning Oct. 7 in Afghanistan, the day of the first bombings in 2001.
