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.

Report back from IMPEACH! Day
April 28 Cleveland

click for short movies of A28 in Cleveland

In Cleveland A28 went well, the weather started out nasty, cold and wet earlier in the day.

At 1 p.m. we connected with local environmentalists from Ohio Citizen Action who were doing a bike ride fundraiser for their local clean air campaign. We showed parts of 'Voices For Impeachment" at Visible Voices Books and a news clip about O.C.A's clean air campaign. They brought their folks to the film showing and we joined forces. It was good because we also were helping out this new progressive bookstore by bringing folks in. Everyone cooperated with each
other and many people from different peace and justice groups and political perspectives (as well as individuals) participated throughout the day..

After that we several of us went with some SDS youths to the local recruiting station and held up an impeachment banner and did some street theatre with a "detainee".. We shut the recruiting station down and plastered the windows with "Impeach Bush and Cheney for War Crimes" and "Not Our President" signs and copies of the WCW call before we left.

Much to our delight the weather cleared up with blue skies and warmer temperatures as we were going back to Lincoln Park . We decorated it with orange Impeach balloons to the delight of all the children in the playground who were running around with them. About 100 people trickled in and we held up large letters , banners and signs along the main drag and did some strong agitation and open mic to an audience that formed across the street by a local church. We recieved many honks and thumbs up. I also recited the Pledge Of Resistance.

Some of us formed the word impeach in the grass (on top of plastic) while others kept the vigil at the street going.A group of us then marched to Pat's In the Flats with 911Truth folks and did some strong agitation outside of local yuppie restaurants ...some folks and shop keepers came out and clapped while a few others yelled at us but we held our positions and had really good agitation going on the whole time. We also had a "detainee" in jumpsuit with us doing stress positions which always gets attention.

At Pat's In The Flats we tabled, danced and listened to Anti -Bush bands until the wee hours of the morning.We also did some impeach petitions and made new contacts.
It was a successful day and we met many new faces and activists..

Folks really liked the idea of being part of a national movement happening all over. Some folks suggested we all join forces and do impeachment actions like this every week!
