We are grandmothers committed to ending
the military presence of the United States in the Middle East and Afghanistan. That presence kills and maims our grandsons and
granddaughters, escalates death and destruction in several countries, and
impedes our ability to deal with our own country’s social and economic
needs. Our military interventions lead only to more military intervention
and improve nothing for the people in the affected areas. Nor do those
interventions keep the United States safer. To the contrary, the U.S.’s military behavior inflames and encourages
radical anti-U.S. attitudes.
We invite all like-minded people to
join us in protest.
