International Conference on Afghanistan in London: CODEPINK in Solidarity with London Protests
January 27th, 2010
The International Coordinating Committee (ICC) of "No to War --
No to NATO" has
just issued a statement regarding the Afghanistan Conference. This
conference was summoned by Brown, Sarkozy, and Merkel, and a key topic
of debate will be the Obama administration's request for additional troops
for Afghanistan from NATO allies such as Germany and France. The German
government has said that it will only consider increasing German troops
in Afghanistan following the discussions in London.
We would like to invite all of you to join the manyfold protests around
the international Afghanistan conference and would like to ask you to
support the enclosed statement; spread it throughout your networks, send
it to the media of your county and place it on your website homepages.
