This event will benefit World Can't Wait-Drive Out the Bush Regime, and build for massive demonstrations on October 5th. This event will take place at the Grand Lake Theater at 3200 Grand Avenue in Oakland.
Through words and art, those with the power to move us raise diverse voices to say:
"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....If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, 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 to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop. The 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.
The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US."
