(Read Jeff's reports from Gaza) The New England United business meeting will follow at 1:45 p.m Please join us: Iraq's Prime Minister admitted that US troops may be asked to stay beyond 2011. The expansion of the war into Pakistan has displaced millions of civilians and deepened the possibility of civil war. The troop surge in Afghanistan is creating only more opposition to the US presence. We will come together to discuss fall antiwar action proposals and need your input!
