“We Can Make Change” Debra Sweet on Rochester Indymedia

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.

Watch now!

Video: Andy Worthington Discusses the Horrors of Guantánamo at Aafia Siddiqui Protest in London

Dr. Aafia Siddiquiby Andy Worthington

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.



World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
