– It’s what happens in war: Civilians get slaughtered; troops get killed, maimed and traumatized; and connected corporations get rich –
For weeks, U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan have denied they killed several dozen civilians in Sangin District of Helmand Province on July 23. But our new video exposes the truth about one of the worst civilian casualty incidents of the war. Watch our exclusive interviews with survivors and demand that your elected officials act to prevent future catastrophes like this. http://rethinkafghanistan.com
First, NATO denied knowing anything about the incident.
Then, they said only six people were killed and that most of them were insurgents.
They can’t deny it anymore. http://rethinkafghanistan.com/
Working with a brave team in Afghanistan headed by Anita, Brave New Foundation’s Rethink Afghanistan project sent an intrepid local blogger into Sangin District of Helmand Province–one of the most dangerous areas of the country. He brought back extraordinary first-person accounts from survivors of the Sangin catastrophe. Thanks to his work, there’s no doubt anymore: as many as 52 people were killed by a rocket fired by NATO forces.
Survivors tell of a scene of absolute carnage and despair, and when the smoke cleared, according to one local, “They [NATO] did nothing and afterwards they said nothing, just like nothing ever happened.”
But something did happen, and we have to act.
Watch our new video and send it to your elected officials: http://rethinkafghanistan.com
Tell them you’ll remember how they reacted to Sangin when you enter the voting booth this November.
