Afghanistan Occupation 10th Anniversary Protest



The Waco Friends of Peace took a stand for peace on Thursday October 6, tenth anniversary of the US occupation of Afghanistan. We stood in solidarity with the www.october2011.org movement in Wash. DC and around the country. And in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement which is growing across the nation as well. Thanks to FOP veteran Harrison Ward for leading this action and the 15 or so other folks with courage to witness for peace. I can't remember all the names so I thank everyone in unison. The quotation from Rev. King on back of the FOP t-shirt says it all: "There comes a time when silence is betrayal." The Waco Friends of Peace will not keep silence as long as the military industrial congressional complex wastes lives and trillions of dollars.
