Why is the U.S. in Afghanistan and Iraq? What is the effect on those societies? When, if ever, will the U.S. leave? As we prepare to protest 10 years of US war on Afghanistan, let's wrangle over a question a lot of returning soldiers say they can't answer: Why is the US there?

In preparation for protesting on the 10th anniversary of the US bombing Afghanistan, we'll have people on the phone with answers. Join us. Write for a reservation.
Ten years. Ten long years of invasions and occupations, drone bombings and night raids; of torture chambers, “enhanced interrogation techniques” and indefinite imprisonment without trial. Ten years, and the number of dead is over a million. Ten years, and more than four million people made refugees. (More on WHY these protests must be as powerful as possible).
At the protests beginning in Washington DC on Thursday, October 6, and over the following days around the country, World Can’t Wait will be dramatically and boldly presenting the human cost of 10 years of the US/NATO war on the people of Afghanistan. Public protest art, guerrilla theater, orange jumpsuits, the museum of torture... resisting the crimes of this government on October 6th in Washington, DC at Freedom Square needs YOUR participation.
Our audience will be the people watching from the sidelines, or at the other end of the camera. Your participation will be amplified as we act together. Sign up now to be part of teams:
► Dramatizing drone bombings on civilians; showing the public the Bush regime torture museum of “enhanced interrogation techniques”; facilitating public interaction with the memorial to civilian and military victims of the US war on terror. There are many ideas and possibilities, costumes and scripts existing and to be developed, even on the spot.
► Tabling and meeting new potential activists. There’s a role for everyone in stopping the crimes of our government.
► Virtual presence on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and in the media to publicize not only the protests, but the underlying reasons for our demand to end the aggressive wars and occupations. Photographers, videographers and bloggers needed.
