Upcoming Actions for January 2009

JANUARY 19/20 JOIN us in Washington

Are you thinking that no one will speak up for the interests of the people in stopping the wars & torture, and that we must be quiet about Obama's invitation to Rick Warren, a leading homophobe being elevated to the status of a Billy Graham?

Are you thinking that if we protest against Obama's escalation of the war in Afghanistan, no one will see us, or we will be challenged?  That the only choice is to "go along?"  World Can't Wait will be there next week.  JOIN US!  If you can't come along, send some funds our way for materials and transportation.  You'll get a full report on January 23!

World Can't Wait organizers will be protesting in Washington on January 19 and 20.  Bush may issue pardons on Jan 19 or 20, including possible blanket pardons covering torture.  We will be in the news, and around the White House, to demand prosecutions.  We want to be among the crowds with the message, "Stop the US war OF terror and torture...the world can't wait!"


January 19 (Monday - MLK holiday) 

11am  SHOE BUSH rally/march.  David Swanson, Debra Sweet, Adam Kokesh speaking at DuPont Circle.  March to White House to demand Prosecute the War Criminals!   http://shoebush.org/

Ken Theisen, "Obama gives Number 2 job at Pentagon to Raytheon lobbyist!"


Barack Obama, who during his campaign promised to lessen the influence of lobbyists in Washington, chose William J. Lynn III as his deputy secretary of defense at the Pentagon. Lynn just happens to be a senior vice president in charge of lobbying with Raytheon. Raytheon in turn just happens to have billions of dollars in Pentagon contracts and is the maker of the Army's Patriot Missile system and the Navy Tomahawk missile. Raytheon is also developing a global positioning satellite communication system for the Air Force. Lynn's new post would involve him in the process of budgeting and acquisitions.






In just the first three months of 2008, Lynn's Raytheon lobbying team spent at least $1.15 million to influence issues regarding missiles, sensors and radar, advanced technology programs and intelligence funding."

YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.
Monday, January 19th, 9AM
Ebenezer Baptist Church
(Auburn Ave. and Jackson Street)
Rick Warren is a Biblical literalist. Just as some used the Bible to defend slavery, Rick Warren uses the Bible to promote hate and discrimination against gays and lesbians. He backed Proposition 8, a California constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages, and equates homosexuality with pedophilia and incest. He upholds war and capital punishment while declaring abortion as murder and promotes women’s subservience to men.
Rick Warren is the keynote speaker for the MLK Day commemoration at Ebenezer, and to deliver the invocation at Barack Obama's inauguration. This is outrageous! Seeking “common ground” with hateful theocrats is unacceptable! As the World Can’t Wait Call says, “That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop – you will learn or be forced to accept.”
