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.
