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.

Bring this Campus Speaking Tour to Ohio...

Mission of a Generation: Stop the War Now!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!

The World Can't Wait is launching a speaking tour to campuses and military bases across the country. We are leaving immediately. This is an emergency. We are counting on everyone who knows that the arrogant escalation of the Bush war is a turning point-- and how we respond will impact the whole world, one way or another, for years to come.

When Nixon said he’d end the war by escalating it to Cambodia in May 1970, campuses across the nation were shut down in the largest student strike in the history of this country. This is something the purveyors of war for empire fear...

In the wake of Bush's recent speech, the campuses are appallingly quiet. But it is an intense calm. This tour aims to lift the lid by bringing the truth, including an eyewitness report on the debacle in Iraq from recently returned Marine, Liam Madden.

"Mission of a Generation" will also take its daring message to military bases around the country. It's an open secret that there are countless soldiers who want to connect with GI's who are refusing to be mercenaries for empire and are saying no …

The "Mission of a Generation: Stop the War Now! Drive Out the Bush Regime!" speaking tour will put out the challenge directly to youth and students:

Will we be remembered as the generation who sat back and allowed illegal wars to spread throughout the Middle East, torture legalized, the rights of women and gays eviscerated, and a fascistic police-state constructed? Or will we refuse to go along with this? Will we lead millions to erupt in political protest and defiant truth-telling? Will we make it our mission to bring the crimes of the Bush regime to a halt!?

The Tour began at New York University and other New York City campuses as part of building for the January 27th anti-war protests in D.C. From there it will travel to Chicago, the Bay Area, the Los Angeles area, Washington State, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta, Wisconsin, Texas, Virginia and North Carolina.

If you are in one of these areas and would like to book or help promote an event OR if you would like to bring this tour to another area, contact us immediately at or

There is little else that will have greater impact in bringing millions out into the streets to stop the war and drive out the Bush Regime than rousing a determined political movement among students and young people.

This could be the tour that unlocks our moment, bridging the gap between 70+% who hate where things are going, but are not yet acting.

Speakers on the Tour include:

LIAM MADDEN, a 22-year-old Marine Corps Sgt and co-founder of the Appeal for Redress-- the call signed by more than 1000 active-duty soldiers demanding withdrawal of all troops and bases from Iraq

SUNSARA TAYLOR, writer and member of the Advisory Board of World Can't Wait-- Drive Out the Bush Regime.

ELAINE BROWER is the mother of a Marine recently returned from Fallujah. She is an activist against the war with World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime and Military Families Speak Out.
