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.

Hook up with World Can't Wait beginning at 9am Saturday, Jan. 27, at 4th Street and Madison Drive, at the edge of the Mall, across from the National Gallery of Art east building (click here for a map). This is a 5-block walk down the hill from Union Station (Red Line Metro Stop) and about the same distance from the Smithsonian Metro stop (Orange and Blue Line).

The Jan. 27 protest is being organized by the United For Peace & Justice Coalition, of which World Can't Wait is a participant.

George Bush has a dramatic and risky plan to escalate and expand the war, not all of which he’s revealed. As he was speaking last Wednesday, US forces went into Kurdish territory, broke into an Iranian diplomatic building, and seized files and people, in violation of the sovereignty of both Iran and the Kurdish region – a clear provocation. Now, 3 aircraft carriers are in the Persian Gulf. As someone said at the World Cant’ Wait national meeting this past weekend, “this is the start of another war, not just the expansion of this one.”

There is no way a president who has committed war crimes and crimes against humanity should be in office. Now he’s pledged to commit more and worse – he is moving towards war with Iran. A president who has no popularity and little legitimacy should have none.
