The World Can't Wait, and neither can PDX!
PORTLAND IS UP AND RUNNING!

Go to the National Website for daily updates: www.worldcantwait.org

The Organizing Meeting for World Can't Wait, Drive Out the Bush
Regime/Portland will be Saturday September 9th from 4pm-6pm. This will be
in conjunction with the Nationwide October 5th organizing meetings held
this week.

The Portland WCW organizing meeting for the October 5th day of resistance
is happening at the following location on Saturday (not Thursday!)

September 9th:
Flying Pie Pizza
7804 SE Stark St. in Portland
4pm to 6pm

Now is the time for you to step forward and become a part of organizing
for this historic day.
Here is the original idea put forward by the National Office of World
Can't Wait:

In every city where World Can't Wait has organization, and in many cities
where it doesn't yet, people will gather simultaneously at 7pm on Thursday
September 7 to get organized (AGAIN, FOR PORTLAND, THE DATE HAS BEEN
CHANGED TO SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 9TH FROM 4-6PM) They'll hear from leaders
of the movement, and meet others in their area ready to organize for a day
of mass protest exactly 4 weeks later. Then, on Thursday October 5, in
those cities, and more, people will make a huge political statement that
cannot be ignored by massing in large numbers to say: "Bring This to a
Halt! The World Can't Wait! Drive Out the Bush Regime!"

Speakers at Sept. 7 meetings will include: Father Luis Barrios, William
Blum, Larry Brinkin, Elaine Brower, Henry Chalfant, Kathleen Chalfant,
Chris Daly, Jesse Diaz Jr., Daniel Ellsberg, Esther Kaplan, Mark Crispin
Miller, Chris Owens, Malik Rahim, Jean Rohe, Jed Stone, Jonathan Tasini,
Rev. Charles Tigard, Bob Watada, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, & Kevin Zeese.

An organizer for the Seattle chapter of WCW will be on hand at the
September 9th meeting in PDX to assist with organizing ---but come
prepared to get into how you are going to make October 5th happen in this
area!!
If you have any questions, please call Maggie Lawless at (206) 427-8955.

See you Saturday!!
