A Yemeni child was among those who addressed a protest in New York City on October 7, the 17th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan.
Activists from Yemen, Syria, Iran, Palestine, Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, Korea and the Philippines were among those who gathered in Herald Square to demand an end to the so-called “war on terror,” which in reality is war for corporate profits against oppressed people around the world.
The protesters then marched through crowded streets to the U.S. Army recruiting station in Times Square. The rally and march were called by the International League of People’s Struggle and the United National Antiwar Committee.
