Protests this weekend demand the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of US-NATO troops

This 13-year-old Afghan boy named Saalem earns the equivalent of US 30 cents for every 2.2 pounds of plastic he collects for recycling. Thousands of Afghan children orphaned by the US-NATO bombing & occupation of their country have to earn their own way to survive. One of the most noted features of undocumented immigration into Europe is the huge number of unaccompanied Afghan minors. Their fate is a matter of  indifference to US-NATO governments but it is surely one of the most egregious crimes against the people of Afghanistan. There are antiwar protests in many US cities as well as in London, England & Islamabad, Pakistan. Information on the protests is available at:
