US-Led Forces Accused of Executing Schoolchildren in Afghanistan

This is the what our War Resisters have refused to support. They face prison and separation from their children because they refuse to participate in terrorizing children in Afghanistan and Iraq. Support our War Resisters - help them escape the cycle of terror. Help them preserve their own families.
In Afghanistan, hundreds have taken to the streets of Kabul and elsewhere to protest the US killing of civilians. The incident that has sparked the most outrage took place in eastern Kunar on December 27th, when ten Afghans, eight of them schoolchildren, were killed. According to the Times of London, US-led troops dragged innocent children from their beds and shot them during a nighttime raid. Afghan government investigators said the eight students were aged from eleven to seventeen, all but one of them from the same family.
