Sustain World Can’t Wait

By Debra Sweet
Today is the last day of World Can't Wait's Sustainer Fund Drive. We've topped 40% of the goal needed to pay the bills for our national efforts.  While that's far short of what is needed, we've met many new people, received great comments, and some former donors are back. 
You all know what you've done to keep this movement going. 
Tell someone else, and ask them to sustain here.

Changing the Dynamic - Because the World Can’t Wait

By Debra Sweet

 World Can’t Wait activists are intensely committed to stopping the “Bush” program.  Though we didn’t succeed in our collective efforts to drive out the Bush regime, we set a standard, on principle, for challenging the government not to carry out crimes in our names.
But having principles is only a start.  We want to stop the crimes.

Let me follow out one example.  We’re paying the price for not having forced Bush and Cheney from office in disgrace once the Abu Ghraib abuse became public. We were all against the shocking memos of the Bush legal torture team; the snarling Cheney refrain that water-boarding is a “no-brainer” and keeps “us” safe; the branding of every Muslim as a “terrorist”.  Torture opponents had the moral high ground during the Bush years.

Yet, we’ve allowed Bush to say, first, “We don’t torture;” then to get away with the legal cover-up.  And now the message from the neo-cons is open: “We must and will torture.”  14 months post-Bush, the Cheney approach sets the agenda, despite President Obama’s promises, and intentions, to shut down Guantanamo.


Main Calls to Action


World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
