  1. Please join the St. Louis Instead of War Coalition for a demonstration to stand against Obama's decision to deploy more troops to Afghanistan.

    Gather in front of Sen. Claire McCaskill's office (5850 Delmar) Wednesday, December 2, from 4:00 to 5:30 PM.

    We will gather not only to protest the decision to escalate the war bu...t also to urge Senator McCaskill not to approve funds for this war.

    We will have signs, but you are welcome to bring your own. Our hope is that the crowd will build during rush hour, as people leave work and school to join us.
