The Newark-based People’s Organization for Progress (POP) did not wait for President Barack Obama’s announcement on December 1 concerning his decision to send or not to send more troops to Afghanistan. On November 28, POP gathered at the intersection of Broad and Market streets in Newark and called the first Black president out.
“One of the purposes of this demo is we want to send a message to President Obama that we don’t want a troop increase and we want an end to the war in Afghanistan,” stated POP State Chairman Lawrence Hamm.
“A lot of people felt the president would pursue a policy that would lead to a lessening of tensions in Central Asia,” Hamm told the AmNews. “Instead, the White House and the Pentagon are increasing tensions with their troop escalations and the continued occupation of Iraq, and the drone planes being sent into Pakistan, which may be killing innocent people.”
“Saturday was one of biggest marches held in Newark for a long time,” said Hamm. “I thought it sent two strong messages. The first is it said to the Bush administration that we want a change in spending priorities in this country, from the war in Iraq to the needs of people here at home. And we want the war to end. We want the troops to come home.”

‘The people must know that nearly $530 billion has been spent by this president on war, while cuts have been made in domestic programs dealing with education, health and housing.’
