World Can't Wait and Others to Protest War Criminal Condoleeza Rice in San Jose

Rally: Torture is a War Crime, Condoleeza Rice is a War Criminal!

When: 9:30 a.m, Thursday Sept 17 (Rice speaks at 10:15)
Where: San Jose California, Fairmont Hotel 170 S. Market., San Jose Ca.
We especially hope that friends in, and near, the South Bay and the Mid-Peninsula can join us to speak out about the torture and other war crimes of the Bush/Cheney regime in which Rice was such an instrumental player.  Rice shouldn't be teaching at Stanford - she should be facing prosecution for war crimes and crimes against humanity!

Rice is a featured speaker at a conference, "SAP World Tour 2009." ***  SAP's agenda says:  "Effective Leadership and Global Diplomacy . . . Condoleeza Rice provides a sweeping look at global affairs during her tenure as secretary of state and national security advisor. She shares compelling stories of her experiences, which illuminate the interrelationship of global events and leaders."

"Compelling stories?" "The interrelationship of global events and leaders???????" What wise words, what "illumination," can we expect from a Bush/Cheney official who continues to say that any enhanced interrogation technique including waterboarding is by definition not torture, and therefore not illegal, if it is authorized by the President?  For this and more, when Rice was caught on videotape being challenged by students last spring, go here.

Come out to the San Jose Fairmont this Thursday and speak your mind.  Be prepared to give a clear message, including to the conference go-ers as well as the press, with clear signs, jumpsuits and other visuals.

For more info, and to carpool from San Francisco (Mission District hook-up) please reply to this email with "San Jose Thursday" in the subject line.  Or phone 415-864-5153 and leave a message.  We have a limited number of carpool seats still open.

*** SAP, the sponsor of this, calls itself "the world's leading provider of business software.  SAP information can be found here, including more about this Sept. 17 conference," SAP WORLD TOUR 2009: See Your Way Clear - Strategies for Success in the New Reality."

"New Reality?"  Please.  Here's a dose of what's real:

The World Can't Wait!



World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
