As Americans increasingly turn away from news of war with feelings that range from hopeless to despair over their government’s murderous drone strikes, war crimes that are normalized and accepted basis for unwarranted invasions, The World Can’t Wait is like our voice crying in the wilderness - STOP! Debra Sweet’s steadfastness is an anchor of courage and conviction remembering us to care, to not let our friends and neighbors slip away from the struggle. Sustaining World Can’t Wait is supporting hope for why else would World Can’t Wait continue to expose the depravity of the military attacks and our debased national politics that assumes we all want more killing more war!

Participating in the action at Hancock made me more certain that bringing visible street protest in Chicago when NATO meets May 20/21 — and in the week leading up to the meeting — is essential. The international press will be there. Afghan President Karzai will be there, along with the leaders of the best-armed countries of the world’s strongest military alliance, currently occupying the world’s poorest country.
