World Can't Wait activists old and new, come to this important discussion:
Preparing for World Can't Wait National Conference, May 3-4 in Berkeley, CA
This will be our first conference to be held on West Coast, on the UC Berkeley Campus!
It is a time of decision: You are Invited!
WCW organizers and leaders from all over the country will spend two days delving deeply into the challenges facing our movement, sharing experiences and setting the direction for the coming months of 2008.
Everyone who has been part of and/or supporting the World Can't Wait movement is urged to come take part!
- We'll be making bold plans to repudiate the program still firmly in place under George Bush.
- We will discuss factors that may yet make it possible to drive Bush and Cheney from office, and the need for people to act independently of the politics defined and allowed by the coming election (witness the fact that no campaign is making the obvious moral call for impeachment based on lying to Congress or war crimes). We'll tackle assessing the Bush program; the disparity between the hopes people have in the presidential candidates, and the candidates' actual political programs; the possibility of a Bush attack on Iran.
- We'll dig into World Can't Wait's work against military recruiting and torture, and make concrete plans through the fall for spreading the movement among youth and students.
- Most importantly, we'll discuss our responsibility as people living in this country, to bring a halt to those actions most associated with the crimes of the Bush regime: the illegitimate war and occupation of the Middle East, the torture state assembled at the highest White House level and the fascist remaking of the society for generations to come.
Whether you can make the trip to California or not, join us to discuss these issue and others that you want to bring into this important meeting!
Can the world wait? Our movement will discuss the demands placed by history on those who have identified the Bush regime as a danger to the world which can and must be isolated, its program defeated and the basis laid for a movement on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world.
