Countless Reasons to Sign this Statement

Some examples of why hundreds of people, including Cornel West, Cindy Sheehan, Blasé Bonpane, Paul Roberts, Chris Hedges, Carl Dix, and others are signing this statement. What about you?

One day we will have to explain to our children how we could have allowed such atrocities to occur and what, if any action, we took to oppose it! Tomas Olmos
I sign this to speak out about the injustices that I see every day being carried out by my government. I am outraged and disgusted when I consider all that horror that is done in the name of democracy. That word has no meaning in this land anymore. Paul Candler
I am adding my name to this list because this issue is not about right or left; it is about right or wrong! We cannot try to claim the moral high ground if we are doing such things. I do not want such More....horrific actions taken in the name of national security or for any other reason. Mary Whitmore
How did German citizens in the 30s allow the Nazi regime to gain and manifest power? Look in the mirror! Bernie Kellman
That the Obama administration is not only continuing but expanding the illegal, immoral and outrageous breaches of US and International law is unacceptable and must be stopped. Brian O'Keefe
I'm sick and tired of the way the government is stepping beyond the law. Rea Petersen
I object to the overreaching of any political office as well as Congress' apparent inability to hold the executive office accountable to the Constitution and the laws of the U.S. as well as International law to which the U.S. is a signatory. This needs to stop. Susan Aker
These actions, which are done in our name, are those of a king or dictator. They cannot be tolerated, whether conducted under a Democratic or Republican mask. Chris Weaver
US exceptionalism and imperialism have lead to atrocities and crimes against humanity. I don't think most Americans want to be the person our country has become. Judith Bello
I want the U.S. to stop committing WAR CRIMES in my name! Julia Brandner
I still can't believe that in the United States of America, I have to sign a petition declaring my opposition to state-sponsored assassination, massacres, kidnapping, detention by fiat, torture, and the covering up of these crimes. Stephanie Remington
I agree totally with the statement. We are now living under a monstrous administration and a corrupt Congress, and now about to see it backed up by a retrograde Supreme Court. A nation in decline morally and economically, if not militarily. M. K. Brussel


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.
