All of you who have said over the last two years...that you would BE THERE if ever there is a protest against George Bush on a WEEKDAY when we can make a difference, this is for you:
PROTEST Wednesday MARCH 19
Too Many Years of a Criminal Regime! 5 Years of Illegitimate War! End It! Drive the War Criminals from Office!
On March 19, the World Can't Wait, along with other organizations, plans to disrupt business as usual in Washington, D.C. Come to the home of the criminals! Events are happening all day sponsored by many groups.
World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime calls on you to gather in Lafayette Park at 1:30 pm with people in a sea of orange jumpsuits, in solidarity with and representing those that are being tortured in Guantanamo Bay Prison, Abu Ghraib, Bagram in Afghanistan, and CIA "black sites" around the globe. A demonstration showing that waterboarding IS TORTURE, is planned directly in front of the residence of the biggest war criminal in history. Join in acts of creative non-violent civil resistance!
The Park will become a rallying point for those determined to put an end to this illegitimate and immoral war, and who demand justice by driving the war criminals from Office now, not waiting until 2009! We are done with secret renditions, spying on people, lying to the public, using hundreds of signing statements to disobey laws, rounding up immigrants and detaining them in facilities still being built.
REGISTER HERE to let us know you're coming. Legal observers and jail support is planned for all protesters who need it. World Can' t Wait and the Washington Peace Center are providing permitted space for those won't be risking arrest. There are effective ways for everyone to join the protest. More info at 866 973 4463
Iraq Veterans Against the War Brings Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan will feature testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground.
