ANOTHER FULL-PAGE AD IN NEW YORK TIMES CALLS FOR
OCTOBER 5 PROTESTS TO DRIVE OUT THE BUSH REGIME
Nationwide Organizing Meetings September 7

Today, for the second time this month, World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime published a full-page ad in the New York Times calling for massive protests across the country on OCTOBER 5. The ad reads: 'ENDLESS WARS! TORTURE! KATRINA! THEOCRACY! BRING THIS TO A HALT! We must act now-- The world's future is in our hands."

The ad calls for nationwide unconventional protests: "Walk out of school! Refuse to work! No shopping on Oct. 5! …March through the streets calling on millions more to join us in repudiating this criminal regime with the mobilization of massive political opposition!"

Similar ads are appearing today in the LA Weekly, Chicago Reader, San Francisco Bay Guardian, and the DC City Paper. And on Air America radio, national 30-second spots will begin this week featuring nationally known signers of the World Can't Wait Call. The message: " Face it. The Bush regime is remaking the world, very quickly, in a fascist way and for generations to come. Denial won't help. And the Democrats aren't stopping them. But WE must. And we can. There are millions of us…"

On the evening of Thursday, September 7, there will be simultaneous meetings in cities and towns nationwide to organize for October 5.

World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime, a nationwide movement, brought together tens of thousands in protests on November 2, 2005 and January 31, 2006 during Bush’s State of the Union Address. HARRY BELAFONTE, SEAN PENN, LEWIS LAPHAM, U.S. REP. JOHN CONYERS, SUSAN SARANDON, NILES ELDREDGE, MARGARET CHO, CORNEL WEST, HOWARD ZINN, GORE VIDAL, JANE FONDA, CINDY SHEEHAN, PAUL HAGGIS, ALICE WALKER, REV. JESSE JACKSON, and many others have signed the Call for the World Can’t Wait.

In New York City, the September 7 meeting (7-9:00 PM) will be at Metropolitan Community Church, 446 W 36th St. Check http://www.worldcantwait.org for Sep 7 meetings in other cities, and the locations for October 5 actions.
