Today, in honor of the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s decision to speak out against the Vietnam War, has been declared a day of action for bloggers to speak out against the escalation of the U.S. war in Afghanistan.
Progressive bloggers across the United States will be taking the opportunity today to speak out against the war and President Barack Obama’s plan to escalate it.
There are already some great posts circulating online:
- Raping Afghanistan
- Time to Break the Silence on Afghanistan Escalation
- Obama’s Afghan Escalation In Hindsight…
- Obama and Afghanistan Between the ‘Center-Left Experts’ and Right-Wing Hawks
- Obama: Nation Wants Taliban Talks, Not Military Escalation, in Afghanistan

Folks are also encouraged to call their representatives to oppose Obama’s plan.
