Occupy Against U.S. Occupying the Globe

By Debra Sweet

On October 6, 2001 George W. Bush announced to the world that the U.S. was poised to invade Afghanistan. On October 6, 2011, the world must know that there’s a section of people in this country who are determined that we will not allow these wars to continue in our name.

Think about this decade of war and torture. Understand that on the current trajectory there is no end in sight. Think of the world you would want yourself and others across this planet to live in. And express those thoughts – by being in the streets and on the campuses protesting on October 6, by unleashing a crescendo of creative opposition, by expressing yourself in song, in poetry, in art, in whatever form you can.

October 6, 7, 8 and on!

Protest 10 Years of War and Occupation!


For ten years, the richest country in the world has been "at war" with the poorest country in the world.

Full list of local events and protests.


Coming to Washington DC?

Look for our bright and visible presence at Freedom Plaza. Volunteers still needed to help with an array of tasks: sign-making, participating in street theater, photographing, fliering, and much more

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.
