The World Can't Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!
San Francisco Civil Center

November 2 must be a massive and public proclamation that WE REFUSE TO BE RULED IN
THIS WAY. November 2 must call out to the tens of millions more who are now
agonizing and disgusted. November 2 will be the beginning -- a giant first step in
forcing the Bush regime to step down, and a powerful announcement that we will not
stop until he does so -- and it will join with and give support and heart to people
all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped. Endorsed
by Not in Our Name, CODEPINK, and many others.
