Who Is the "We"?

Interpersonal racism, when it exists, is only one part of the equation. Another part is systemic, structurally racist policies, and yet another is class conflict between the police and the poorest, most dangerous communities they patrol, and between those who are better off and those who are not...

Will people living in the United States "shelter in place," speculating on possibilities to reform an illegitimate system? Or will they work to create a political situation where war for empire is repudiated, and the interests of humanity and the planet come first?

Why we're going to Philadelphia and how you can help

The ruling class faced fresh challenges to U.S. terror policy last week following the murder, by police, of two more men of color trapped in a brutal system of repression and displacement. Public outrage over the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile was substantial, spontaneous and determined. Government response to national protest has been two-fold: intimidation of participants with militarized police forces, and fabrication of a false "security" paradigm -- that suspension of civil rights is sometimes necessary, even desirable. 

NO! We reject the lie that a police state keeps us safe. The Obama administration would have you blame a "lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve" for the violence perpetrated by killer cops. The reality is that distrust of police is well-founded.

We recognize that American lives are not more precious or deserving than others. The gratuitous violence visited on challengers to U.S. domination must stop. This will require a committed core of truth-tellers with the means to challenge politics-as-usual. World Can't Wait has a plan to accomplish just that; a Call for Action has been answered by a group of 14 representatives of that vision. We want to enable others to join events surrounding the Democratic Convention:

Join us in bringing the anti-war message to the DNC. It's up to us to deliver a message to the world that there are people living in this country who represent another way, giving them heart, courage and common cause. Resistance to U.S. war on the world is needed more than ever. Sign up to join us in protest and let us know your availability. If you're part of an organization, bring them along.

Can't come to Philadelphia to protest? Donate to support someone else to be part of visible resistance at the DNC. Funding is needed to transport model drones and produce materials and visual displays.

U.S. Executioner-in-Chief Barack Obama gets away with murder on a daily basis. His killer drones program administers the death penalty without trial, accountability, transparency or justice. The wars of aggression on seven sovereign states -- Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen and Somalia -- have contributed to more than 4,000 deaths by drones. 

When all the world's a war zone, civilians find little refuge. The President's loose definition of "enemy combatants" discounts the true human cost of U.S. hegemony over so-called "areas of active hostilities."  

"The only thing those numbers tell us is that this Administration simply doesn't know who it has killed," charges Jennifer Gibson of the international human rights group Reprieve.
