Peace Action Wellington invites you to mark the 10th anniversary of the start of the bombing of Afghanistan on Saturday, 8 October at 3pm at the Cuba Mall stage. There will be speakers and Food NOT Bombs, and an open mike for anyone to talk about the issues.

The war on the people of Afghanistan is New Zealand’s longest-ever foreign war. It has devastated the Afghan people, ruined the countryside and poisoned the environment. It has resulted in the deaths of an estimated 30,000 Afghan people. It has caused unimaginable suffering and horror.

It has done all of these things based on lies and deliberately misleading propaganda. The war and occupation of Afghanistan must end, and the people of Afghanistan must be given our support and solidarity in order to rebuild their lives and their country.

Peace Action Wellington calls for the withdraw of all troops from Afghanistan and an end to the counter-productive “war on terrorism”.

Please help to spread this event to your friends, family and co-workers.

  One Response to “Peace Action Wellington Event – 10th Anniversary of the Bombing of Aghanistan”

  1. Members of Wellington’s 9/11 truth group will be in Cuba Mall on Saturday giving out 9/11 information to the public as part of our usual monthly street actions. We plan to support Peace Action Wellington after and remind those participating that 9/11 truth is a practical path to peace. And that we are part of a growing number of people world-wide who are determined to expose the facts that dispute the legitimacy of the official story of 9/11!

    We will continue to demand that NZ troops are immediately removed from Afghanistan until 9/11 is properly investigated and evidence is produced to demonstrate Afghanistan is not responsible in any way for those attacks!
