We've reached a very sad milestone in the war in Afghanistan: 1,000 U.S. troops have now been killed in that conflict.
To mark this tragic occasion, the American Friends Service Committee is organizing vigils around the country. These vigils are intended to "bear witness to the human and economic cost of the Afghanistan war" and to call on the Obama administration for:
• No additional troops to Afghanistan
• Talks with all parties to the conflict
• Generous civilian-led development funds
