World Can't Wait, OHIO

World Can't Wait is organizing people living in the United States to take responsibility to stop the whole disastrous course led by the Bush administration. We seek to create a political situation where the Bush administration's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking U.S. society is reversed.

Sun and Mon, Dec 10 and 11:
International Human Rights Day activities

On December 10th and 11th, in honor of International Human Rights Day, take a stand against the legalization of torture. Spend the whole day wearing what Guantanamo detainees have to wear everyday. Dress in the orange jumpsuit, hood, shackles, etc. Wear it to school. Wear it to work. Wear it to church or religious services. Detainees at Guantanamo Bay are shackled, held in cages, dressed in orange jumpsuits and sometimes kept hooded, and subjected to torture. In September, Congress made all this legal with the Military Commissions Act (MCA). And in the wake of election promises to bring about a "new direction", no one in Congress is even talking about repealing the MCA and stopping torture.

Sunday, December 10th: Human Rights and Impeachment Day
Join with World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime in a film showing, part of impeachment town hall meetings on Dec. 10th across the country. We will be showing a film by the Center for Constitutional Rights, "How to Impeach a President." And join the discussion about what it will take to drive this regime from power.
