Afghan activist M. Shalalemi and children from the Poor Peoples’
Economic Human Rights Campaign led a march in Philadelphia on Oct. 16 calling
for an end to the war. More than 100 people marched from City Hall to a rally
at the Federal Building around the ninth anniversary of the start of the U.S.
war in Afghanistan. Several speakers addressed the impact of prolonged military
spending on the economy at home, as well as recent FBI raids against anti-war
and solidarity activists.
