On Super Tuesday . . . Meet Senator MIKE GRAVEL in person . . . WORLD CAN’T WAIT OPEN HOUSE This coming Tuesday evening, as the national results from the “Super Tuesday” primaries roll in, don’t sit at home yelling at the TV! Come spend a few hours with World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime! activists and many other friends over pizza, politics, and lively debate! We’ll watch the network and on-line media coverage, and talk about the politics of these elections, and the building of resistance. We are very happy to announce that Senator Mike Gravel will join us. Many of you have been following his presidential campaign, and you've seen his courageous stand on impeachment: “I want to unequivocally state: without Impeachment first, what I or any other worthy Presidential candidate wants to accomplish is very unlikely to happen. Our words will in fact become another empty campaign promise and another sad political fantasy . . . “ However, some of you may not realize that it was Mike Gravel who as a senator waged a fierce fight to get the Pentagon Papers released to the eyes of the world. To read more from WCW about the current leading Democratic candidates, including a comment by Mike Gravel, ["If a Democrat Wins: When Do U.S. Troops Leave?" read here: http://www.worldcantwait.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4275&Itemid=222] Some of you who follow WCW’s national website and the discussion there have written to tell WCW you strongly agree with our perspective on the various candidates, or about the elections more overall. And others write to say the opposite. There is a huge tidal wave of people talking, thinking, arguing about the direction of their own society. What is being decided through the 2008 elections? What potential change are the leading candidates representing -- or not? For all who want to see the Bush regime’s agenda not only halted, but repudiated and reversed – what should we be doing, in the coming weeks and months of 2008? We would love to sit and talk with ALL of you about it ALL! Please join us Tuesday at Spud’s to have that conversation, to meet and hear from Mike Gravel, and to connect with other people who – unlike your government -- want what you want! Your government does not want what you want! You want: an end to illegal wars, torture and indefinite detention, raids on immigrants, assaults on women’s rights, the moves towards theocracy, the fostering of a climate of greed and bigotry, and non-action in the face of a global climate crisis . . . Stephanie and Sabrina, SF Bay Area WCW Chapter
