Join the Iraq Vets and Afghan people against the war in Afghanistan

October 14, 1972, San Francisco Peace March Against the Vietnam War

This link contains a video that was made about the May, 2012 march against war during the NATO meeting in Chicago.  The march was co sponsored by Iraq Veterans against War and Afghans For Peace .  It includes statements by veterans who tore off their medals and threw them over the fence.  It includes a poem by an Afghan woman activist that is moving and strongly felt.   The above picture, taken by Harvey Richards on October 14, 1972, shows a similar alliance that occurred during the Vietnam war between the victims of our aggression and our peace movement.  It is a powerful coalition that pierces the lies of patriotism and shows the deep desire for peace in the world.
