We Want Peace: Afghan Marchers Head to Kabul to Denounce War and Occupation

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Demanding an end to war, dozens of Afghans are making an over 400-mile trek on foot from Helmand to Kabul.

"We are tired of this war and bloodshed," Zaheer Ahmad Zindani, who was blinded in a roadside explosion, told Agence France-Presse.

You won’t see any U.S. politicians in this march. Neither reactionaries and fascists (the vast majority) or liberals and “progressives.” Calling out Bernie, Liz, Kamala, Corey and all the other pissants to get off the wagon of empire and come into the peoples’ world to fight for democracy, human rights, peace and prosperity. Oh never mind…

That’s a good thing. The Afghan peace movement doesn’t want American participation.

That’s absolute BS. U.S. citizens and organizations often go to Afghanistan to SUPPORT Afghan movements, not dominate them. Politicians could do the same, but since they are white supremacists and imperialists (in their actions if not attitudes), they don’t. Just think if Bernie (who has a global identity) did something like that and called for an end to the U.S.-led occupation. Oh, never mind
