On April 18, 2013, Rochester Indymedia interviewed Debra Sweet, an anti-war organizer and director of The World Can't Wait. She will be going to Syracuse, NY on April 26-28th for the “Resisting Drones, Global War and Empire" convergence (see the Facebook event).
In this interview, Debra talks about her entry into the peace movement, the problems with drones and the PTSD that pilots experience, the detainees in Guantanamo, who are on a hunger strike, and Bradley Manning, among other topics.
The biggest question for anybody watching this is what difference can you make? what can be done? is it possible to change anything? And I just want to tell you that it is and it's not only hugely necessary, but it's possible. The only thing that ever changes what a government does is the action of the people under it. Very fundamentally.

On Sunday, in torrential rain, I cut short a dry afternoon in the Catford Bridge Tavern — a formerly notoriously rough pub reborn after its recent takeover by the Antic group, which is spacious, friendly, well-decorated, and which also does excellent food, including Sunday roasts — to take my bike on the train to Charing Cross, and, from there, to cycle up to Piccadilly and through Mayfair to Grosvenor Square, to speak at a protest outside the US Embassyto mark the second anniversary of the sentencing, in a court in New York, of Aafia Siddiqui.
