The Enduswar Coalition:

About Us

We are a new coalition of antiwar organizations, peace and justice advocates, and citizens of conscience who challenge our elected leaders to end the US wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq and bring our troops home.

Our Purpose

We call for active, non-violent non-cooperation with US war policy. As we vigorously oppose a military escalation in Afghanistan, we encourage mass political mobilization and high-profile antiwar political actions across the country. As America continues to commit war crimes for the profit of the few and at the expense of the many, we engage and energize our fellow citizens to become disablers of war party mentality. We reject defeatist thinking and futile rationales by promoting effective war protest. We break cycles of hopelessness by engaging in immediate and direct actions, consistent with our commitment to non-violence. We believe our actions will produce the best methods for securing peace in our country and the world, and we direct our allegiance to that end.

Our Demands

  • Reject any troop surge in Afghanistan.
  • Declare an immediate cease-fire in Afghansitan and Iraq.
  • Bring all US troops home in the fastest way consistent with the safety of our forces.
  • Stop Predator drone strikes that kill civilians.
  • Stop all covert CIA and private black operations in Pakistan and elsewhere.
  • Stop extraordinary renditions. Shut down all CIA black sites/secret prisons once and for all.
  • Stop torture of any kind.
  • Treat all detainees according to the Geneva Convention.
  • Close Guantanamo.
  • Investigate and prosecute all war crimes to the fullest extent.
