About World Can’t Wait

World Can’t Wait is a national movement formed to halt and reverse the terrible program of war, repression and theocracy that was initiated by the Bush / Cheney regime and the ongoing crimes that 

continue to this day

. Founded in 2005, the original mission of The World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime was 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.”


Through protests in hundreds of cities involving tens of thousands of people, this movement was launched. Tens of thousands signed and many donated to publish the 

Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime

 (which was printed as a full-page ad in The New York Times, USA Today, and multiple local papers in 2005 and 2006). 

More on the history of World Can’t Wait.


Based on the truth and holding to principle, the organization has continued to mobilize serious political resistance aimed at actually stopping the “war OF terror” with all its associated outrages of political repression, brutal torture and more which continue under the Obama administration. In 2010, World Can’t Wait published the statement 

Crimes are Crimes – No Matter Who Does Them

 in The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, The Nation, The Humanist, and Rolling Stone online. In 2013, World Can’t Wait published the statement 

Close Guantanamo Now

 in The New York Times and The Progressive.
