Protesing Karl Rove in New York

 On Wednesday evening, March 10th, Karl Rove gave a talk to push his new book, Courage and Consequence, at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.  About a dozen people picketed outside with a banner, posters and leaflets identifying Karl Rove as a war criminal and calling for his prosecution.  Many of the passersby had been unaware of his presence in their community.  For the people going in to the Y for a number of events and activities taking place that night, this was also a surprise - for some, not a pleasant one.  The following is a report from a World Can't Wait activist who went inside the event.

It's kind of a surreal feeling to be sitting inside an auditorium with a few hundred people who decided to buy a ticket for a night out to hear someone speak who is responsible for the death of over one million people.  As if the metal detectors and x-ray machines on the way in weren't enough there are security officers in every corner of the room continually scanning the audience along with a wall of police officers, with flex-cuffs dangling from their belts, lined up in the back of the auditorium.  It's a true testament to the system of oppression under which we live when city-paid police officers are ordered to protect a war criminal with my tax dollars.

 From World Cant Wait San Francisco chapter

 
Friday 5/14/10, 7:30 AM -- two groups were assembling before the commencement ceremony for UC Berkeley Law’s Class of 2010. 
 
Up at the stadium, World Can’t Wait was gathering around a 9-foot mobile “Abu Ghraib prisoner” with UC’s gold “Cal” logo emblazoned across his chest, setting up photo displays and posters dramatizing the torture unleashed by Bush-Cheney and their entire torture team, including Berkeley Law professor John Yoo.

Austin Texas: Protesting a Mass Murderer

By Gail Alfar

A "Family-Friendly" Community Center in Austin Texas recently hosted a War Criminal. Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) Colonel Bentzion Gruber spoke at the Austin Jewish Community Center on March 4, 2010. 

Protesters started gathering outside the center about an hour before his lecture, carrying signs "Judaism-Yes, Zionism-No" and "Bentzion Gruber, WAR CRIMES are not ethical." 
 
The controversy arises from the fact that a community center such as the JCC-Austin would allow, and even co-sponsor, the lecture of a man who is directly involved in the violation of International Law and is responsible for directing 18,000 soldiers in human rights abuses in Occupied Palestine.

War Criminal Karl Rove Chased from UCSB Campus

 

Feb 25, 2010 was a good day at UCSB. Criminal Karl Rove was vigorously protested, walked out on, and pursued by student demonstrators who refused to remain passive while the university hosts, and the Obama admin protects, people like Rove. Below are only a handful of the media outlets the event was covered in. It sparked broader debate about the viability of protest and resistance to what's done in our names, and started to get a better "polarization" going, keeping in mind the contradictory sentiments among students that recent investigations in Revolution newspaper have been portraying and analyzing.

The Torturer’s Book Tour: Protests Greet Yoo in Austin, Houston

From a letter by an Austin activist: I just left the John Yoo protest at University of Texas...There were at least 25 protesters, possibly more after the campus police made me leave the event. When I got to the other side of the building, where I stood with a protest sign facing street traffic throughout the Yoo event, the campus newspaper Daily Texan interviewed me about the police claim that a peaceful protest by non-students was illegal....and why this John Yoo event that was supposed to be open to the public was changed to only those who were given tickets.
