World Can't Wait, Drive Out The Bush Regime - Nov 2nd

by Eric Einem Monday, Oct. 03, 2005 at 5:41 PM
eric@lapostcarbon.org

We believe that as people living in the United States it is our responsibility to resist the injustices done by our government in our names. Let’s unite to drive out the Bush Regime! We are ogranizing actions in Los Angeles as part of the resistance called for by The World Can't Wait & Not in Our Name.

The World Can't Wait
Drive out the Bush Regime Actions of Protest and Resistance in Los Angeles and accross the Nation on November 2nd Called for by national orgnaizations: The World Can't Wait and Not in Our Name.

Why the World Cant Wait?

Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

Your government  is openly torturing people, and justifying it. 

Your government  puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night

Your government  is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule. 

Your government  suppresses the science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price. 

Your government  is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.

Your government  enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

How Do you Drive out a Regime?

To the thousands we spoke to at last weekend’s anti-war protests:

You met us. We listened to you. Almost all of you loved the idea of not waiting until 2006 or 2008, but the question you asked over and over again was: “How do you drive out a regime?” Here’s what we have to say:

In recent years, millions have spoken out, protested, refused to comply with outrageous new repressive measures, given money, voted, and more. Still, the Bush juggernaut of war, repression and hurtful fundamentalist morality has rolled ahead. All this has shown two things:

1. There are indeed tens of millions who are deeply disturbed by and opposed to the whole direction that the Bush administration is dragging our world into.

2. The will of the people means nothing to the Bush regime. The people’s will must be forged into an organized political resistance which repudiates and reverses the whole direction of society, and forces Bush himself from office.

Of course, everyone wants to know exactly what steps will be taken to create a political situation where these things happen. But setting out to drive out a regime, in particular this regime, in this country has never been done before and it is not possible to say exactly what steps will be required or what its final days will look like.

The future is unwritten. Right now, we need very urgently to start writing a new chapter.

Think about this: When four young people sat in at a lunch counter in the South, they didn’t know exactly what forms of struggle the Civil Rights movement would develop or how many and who would join them. When women and doctors developed networks to provide abortions and held speak-outs to make it legal, they didn’t know exactly what court ruling or piece of legislation would codify this right.

They did these things because living one more day without resistance was intolerable. And, by doing what was right and not compromising, they set new terms for society, changed what was deemed possible and realistic and were able to galvanize and activate many thousands more in ways that couldn’t have been predicted.

Today we are facing an unprecedented situation. The challenge is bigger, the stakes are higher, and the window of opportunity is being hammered shut rapidly. There is a moment to seize right now while public support for Bush is at its lowest and millions are seething with anger and aching with desire to affect things. The world cannot wait. The Bush regime must be driven from power. But, we must leave the comfortable ruts of familiar territory and politics-as-usual if we are to stand a chance.
