Or we can show the people living in the Middle East, and the world, that in the U.S. there is a difference between the people and their government, and that the people are taking responsibility to end an unjust war and the war crimes that have been carried out in our name. We can act like we care about the whole planet."
Visible action is urgently needed. Plan Now:
The USA PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions Act, and Obama's FISA Act must be repealed; the U.S. torture state must be dismantled, and secret rendition ended.
*Visible - orange - protests on Sunday, January 11, the anniversary of Guantanamo.
Prosecute the war criminals and STOP the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan!
*The first anti-war protest of the Obama administration January 20, 2009, Washington DC,
Six Years of Illegitimate War - Resist the Recruiters!
*Wednesday, March 18 "We Are Not Your Soldiers" Day of resistance to recruiters;
*Thursday March 19: Local protests including school walk-outs.
*Saturday March 21: United mass protests.
We in World Can't Wait pledge to work with everyone who wants to build an ANTI-war movement. Real change happens when people take independent action - outside the confines of government and in their own interests.
If we want to stop the continued horror of the largest imperialist power on earth dropping bombs, sending death squads and torturers anywhere with impunity - in our names -- the only way is to face up to reality, tell the truth, and get out to the people with the message that we must stop the crimes of our government.
