INFORMATION IN ACTION

Join us in Berkeley, on world-famous Sproul Plaza when World Can't Wait brings the "detainees" in orange jumpsuits to bear witness to the presence of a torturer - John Yoo - on the UC Berkeley campus.

During the busiest time of the campus day, we'll display this reality. And we'll give out our new brochure, "The Truth About Torture: Why John Yoo Should be Fired, Disbarred, and Prosecuted", and talk to everyone we meet.

August 27 is the second day the campus as a whole returns to classes. Read our report about the action at Boalt Hall on the law school's first day back, and think about why it's crucial for students to take up the challenge of saying NO to torture. How important is it for every student to have the information they need to understand why torture matters and what it means to take responsibility for stopping it - or not?

All ages welcome. Take an hour or two of your Thursday and wear a jumpsuit, or pass out flyers, and meet students. The more of us take part, the more people we can reach out and talk with. We'll have a brief orientation at 11:45 - meet at the Sproul Hall steps - then put on the jumpsuits and begin.

UC can not be allowed to harbor a war criminal. People of conscience have to step forward, have to stand up to the great crimes being committed in our names. And we have to resist.
