Happy International Day of Nonviolence (and Happy 146th Birthday to Gandhi)!
Click here to be part of the October 7 thunderclap for peace.
On October 7, as the U.S./NATO war in Afghanistan enters Year 15, with new U.S. troops just deployed, but also as we mark the anniversary of a popular revolution without war in the Philippines, the world’s social media (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr) will be flooded with the message that we’ve had enough of war and are ready to move beyond it.
But you can’t wait for October 7th. To be part of a thunderclap you have to sign up beforehand. Just click this: http://thndr.me/NChhRE
If you indicate now that you will support the thunderclap on Facebook or Twitter or Tumblr or all three, your message will automatically go out on October 7th along with everyone else’s, flooding social media with this message from Afghan Peace Volunteers:
“Oct 7 begins year 15 of war on Afghanistan w/more US troops just deployed. Join Afghans who say #Enough! to all wars! http://thndr.it/1O6BXZG”
