New Movie: Stealing America - Vote by Vote

Over the last decade, millions of votes have disappeared. A nation can be stolen without guns or tanks. A nation can be stolen vote by vote.

First-person stories from the election trenches paint a chilling picture of problems affecting election outcomes, "glitches" and "irregularities" which cannot be explained away as random errors.

Successful Freeze Action at Grand Central Station:

175+ declare "No Attack on Iran!"

Next freeze action: Monday, July 21st - Penn Station

(details and other plans below)

At 5:00 pm on Thursday, July 10th, people started to gather on the corner of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. We each put a sign or large sticker saying, "No Attack on Iran!" on our clothing, even if we were already wearing T-shirts calling for impeachment or an end to the war in Iraq. Excitement mounted as more and more people arrived and passersby looked, stopped, asked questions and, in some cases, joined in to go inside to freeze. At 5:25, we entered Grand Central Station. Over 175 of us walked around the main concourse. Then at exactly 5:40, as marked by the clocks in the center of the station, we froze, like statues, wherever we were. We stayed that way, completely frozen, until 5:45. People in the station stopped and stared and took pictures. Some tried to talk to us. At exactly 5:45 we broke into a loud, echoing, and long chant of "No Attack on Iran!" A significant number of the commuters clapped and joined in the chant. We left with a surge of enthusiasm that many agreed hadn't been felt at a demonstration for a long time.

This successful action, initiated by World Can't Wait, became a joint effort of many organizations with Activist Response Team (ART), United for Peace and Justice, Code Pink, Brooklyn For Peace, and members of Peace Action joined, playing important roles in mobilizing for this. Granny Peace Brigade, and Theater Against War were there. In fact, we are still learning of groups that spread the word to their email lists and came.

Laura Flanders sent her GRIT TV crew who interviewed several people, and will be airing the footage on her show on this weekend.

For most who came, this was their first taste of such creative "theatrical" political action, but won't be their last. Many expressed hope that this action would spark many more types of creative and determined actions against a possible attack on Iran. In that spirit, plans were announced at the end of the action to do this creative and thrilling action again:

Another "FREEZE" Action: No Attack on Iran

Monday, July 21st at Penn Station (and more)

Meet up at 5:00 PM at 32nd and 7th Avenue, "Freeze" at 5:30 pm.

Those who want to participate should email to sign up.

Volunteers are needed to help make this happen, as well for organizing "premier" showings throughout the area of the new film "Iran is not the problem", mobilizing for "No Attack on Iran" contingents at demonstrations on August 2nd, and developing a rapid response textmail network to swifly respond to any major moves towards an attack on Iran. Interested volunteers should email, and please include your telephone or cell number with your message so we can quickly pull organizing teams together.

Come to Denver August 25-28 when Democrats meet

Be there to make your sentiments loud and visible:

If you think no government should be allowed to do what the Bush regime has done the past 7 years, come to Denver and join others building a movement to that end.

  • If you are sickened by your government waging an endless, illegitimate, immoral war and occupation in Iraq, with ominous and immediate threats on Iran, and demand that U.S. aggression in the Middle East be stopped now, come to Denver and say it loudly to the world press.

  • If you don't buy the justification of your government spying on private calls and mail, no matter which party makes it, come to Denver to repudiate the new FISA law. . If you're tired of politics as usual selling “change”; while Obama refines the Bush program from “faith-based” initiatives to 80,000 troops “stabilizing” Iraq, and refuse to settle for less and less, come to Denver make a moral and political declaration.

  • If you know it's up to the people to take responsibility for the future we want,

  • Then join with all of us in Denver to politically fight for it.

World Can't Wait, other national organizations, and thousands of Denver activists will march against the war & torture, attacks on immigrants & women's rights; gather in parks with permits, drop banners, and be in front of DNC delegates and world press with our demand to bring the Bush program to a halt, no matter who is president.

Sign up & coordinate: / 866-973-4463.


Bush May Be on His Way Out, But the Nightmare is Not Over!

We Need a Movement to Bring All This to A Halt!
