"Drive Out the Bush Regime" Protests

The marxist-dominated World Can't Wait organization scheduled to major protests in Washington, D.C. on January 31 ("Bring the Noise and Drown Out Bush's Lies"} at the Capitol and the Feb. 4th "We will take our demand to the White House" demonstration demonstration behind the White House.

They took out to full-page ads in the Washington City Paper (1/26 and 2/06/06) to promote these demonstrations and listed some of the protests signers of "The Call" "World Can't Wait: Drive Out the Bush Regime", which is reproduced below.

The January 27, 2006 ad's text is as follows:[3]

January 31, 2006: President Bush gives his State of the Union Address. The State of the Union is a STATE OF EMERGENCY! We Demand: BUSH STEP DOWN & Take Your Program With You!

DEMONSTRATE: Tuesday, January 31, 2006, 8:00 PM Protest on the West Side of the U.S. Capitol. Bring the Noise and Drown Out Bush's Lies. In large cities and town squares across the country - we will rally one hour before Bush's address. At 9:00 PM let the world hear us as we symbolically drown out Bush's lies - bring your own noises - drums, pots and pans, musical instruments - your voices. In DC bring flashlights to shine on Bush's lies. Let taxi horns blare and church bells ring, as we bring our own state of the union message: BUSH STEP DOWN!

Saturday, February 4, 2006, 11:00 AM, Washington, D.C. at 17th & Constitution. We will take our demand to the White House. This regime is immoral, dangerous and indictably criminal. Bush Lied. Bush Spied. Bush Step Down. 2006. 2008. Too late. Turn your outrage into mass political action.

The Call

"We Demand BUSH STEP DOWN and take your program with you!"

"World Can't Wait Drive Out the Bush Regime!

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 jial 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.

People look at all this and think of Hitler - and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is seeting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.

Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge, and people sense this.

There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing." People who steal elections and believe they're on a "mission from God" will not go without a fight. There is not goign to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into "leaders" who tell us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, and actually servies to demobilize people.

But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That will you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn - or be force - to accept. There is no escaping it; the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it.

And there is a way. We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world. We need more than fighting Bush's outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush's regime's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history.

Acting in this way, we join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.

This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we cat, they will try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out tot he people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.

This point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined.
