Surging on or Droning on?
ALERT: Street Protests & Die-Ins on the evening President Obama announces the plan to expand the occupation of Afghanistan. That's the night the media will be looking for response from the people. Get signs and banners ready, and make your gathering plans now.
Whether Barack Obama announces a troop increase to Afghanistan, or chooses the covert operations & unmanned drone option to try to "win" in Afghanistan, we should be in the streets opposing any escalation.
The only acceptable announcement to come from the administration would that they're withdrawing combat troops, support troops, CIA drones, covert operations, and all private contractors NOW.

We're extending the invitation to this meeting far beyond activists already working with World Can't Wait. Everyone will contribute; everyone will learn a lot and be part of bringing this movement forward in 2010 toward more decisive and determined resistance.
Writers, students, thinkers, non "activists" all welcome at this meeting. Register now. Details forthcoming.
Debra Sweet, Director, The World Can't Wait----------
