Let car horns blare and church bells ring as we declare that the state of the union is a STATE OF EMERGENCY.

If you can come early, there are a thousand things that need to be done to make this day as powerful as it can be: come to our office to phone bank; make organizer’s kits; pick up leaflets and posters to saturate the city with word of the protest; help with set-up at the beginning of the march and the rally at the end. And we need to raise $$$$$ and more $$$$ to reach–via ads on the radio, TV, in print–the millions of people who hate this regime as much as we do and need to know there’s a movement that is going to drive this Regime out and isn’t stopping until we do.
Finally, after drowning out the State of the Union, come to DC to take our protest directly to the White House! On Saturday, Feb. 4, people from all over the country will be converging in the very seat of power of this regime in DC to demand that Bush Step Down and Take His Program With Him!
For details and news from all over the country, visit the national website of World Can’t Wait at www.worldcantwait.org. Or come by our office at 5507 Santa Monica Blvd. #207 (northwest corner of Santa Monica Blvd. & Western Ave.); call us at 323-462-4771.
On Sunday there will be an organizers’ meeting to make plans and immediately maximize and organize coming off of the protest on 1/31. This important meeting begins at 1pm at the Peace Center, 8124 W. 3rd Street, L.A. (west of Fairfax and just west of Crescent Heights); park and enter through the back.
Tomorrow, be a part of making history! Drown out Bush’s State of the Union on January 31st! On to D.C. to Surround the White House on February 4th!
Hello Progressives of District 31.
In the annual State of the Union speech, the President outlines his agenda for the year to Congress and the American public. In 2002, President Bush gave us the “axis of evil”, in 2003, he provided false information about Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction. In 2004 and 2005, he argued that the war on terror was working, and we were making progress in Iraq.
What ridiculous statements await our ears in 2006?
To find out, join CA Peace Action and other progressive organizations at a State of the Union viewing party to watch the speech, and take action to stop this administration’s reckless agenda. You can’t watch it alone!
We’ll have drink specials at our no-host bar, complimentary light snacks, and three big TVs to watch the speech. A short response panel will follow, with time for discussion.
