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.

Human and Immigrant Rights groups around the nation will join in solidarity demonstrations on Wednesday, September 12 at immigration offices to demand an end to:

* Raids on Central American and Latino workers undocumented in the US
* Racial Profiling
* Use of Severe, Terrorizing Tactics with Immigrants
* Separation of Families

Bring a sign - "STOP THE RAIDS"

Cleveland is about to take a stand against the harsh policies targeting immigrants. We want advocates from all over Ohio to represent at this rally. We need to make a strong statement NOW.

· 180 workers in a chicken plant were arrested in Butler County , Ohio , last week. Many face months in prison.
· 45 men, women and minors arrested in sweeps in Painesville since May 18. Most were low-wage field and factory workers. Some are still in jails around Ohio , or permanently deported.
· Congress has approved 45,000 new detention beds for immigrants, including children.
· Families are being separated by the thousands.
· Hundreds are dying at the border.
When we will stand up and say, “Enough!” ?
It’s time to let our elected officials know we will no longer stand by as our communities are destroyed.
