World Can't Wait Agenda For Teens

Parents what will your teens be doing on November 2nd? Will they be in school learning or will they be demonstrating by walking out of class because they have listened to the wrong ideology on how to right the world?

It's time to have a real discussion at the supper table that doesn't involve homework, the mall, sports, or upcoming weekend events. Talk to your kids tonight about a group of people who are attempting to use our kids to promote their cause. The name of the group is The World Can't Wait. Here is what they want your kids to believe and do tomorrow:

Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

Your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it.

Your government
puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

Your government
is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

Your government
suppresses the science that doesn't fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.

Your government is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.

Your government enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.

People look at all this and think of Hitler— and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.
There is more...read what "their kids" are telling your kids to do:

November 2nd marks Bush's reelection, but after 2005, it will be remembered as the beginning of the end of the Bush regime. On November 2nd thousands of people will be leaving jobs, leaving schools, and taking to the streets. This is a time to take action. What else needs to happen before we act? Go back to segregation? New Orleans, the war in Iraq, and these Supreme Court nominations are proof enough that this regime must go.

Bush is a threat to society. He is drifting society towards fascist theocracy with its roots in the Bible. Bush is letting people die in Iraq. He'’s against abortion. He wants to take women'’s rights away. He hasn'’t said anything about the minutemen on the border. He'’s a threat to our future.

We as high school students not only have the right to join this movement, but responsibility to do so. We are going to have high school walkouts all over the country on November 2nd.

In Los Angeles, principals and administrators are trying to stop us from doing this. At Locke, the principal threatened to expel a student because she was passing out posters telling about the genocidal comments of William Bennett and how this is part of why we have to drive out the Bush regime. At Banning, the principal forced a student to walk around the school and take down all the stickers and posters about November 2nd. Then he cancelled the speakout she was working on, which she had permission to schedule at the school. At Reseda, school police told a student she would get a $700 ticket if she walked out of school on November 2nd. And at Fairfax, some teachers started scheduling tests for November 2nd and telling students their grades would be lowered if they missed the test.

Our answer to all this is: F*ck their threats, we'’re changing the world!

The administrators are using the same tactics as the Bush administration: fear. They are trying to scare us so we'’ll back off and not walk out or go against Bush. What are these threats compared to what Bush is doing? They are nothing.

On top of this, their own policy says we students have the right to walk out of school and the administrators are not allowed to try to stop us! This was in a memo from the Los Angeles Unified School District that was sent to all the principals on October 26, 2005. That memo should be made public to all students and parents. People should support the high school students and make sure these administrators don'’t try to punish any students for walking out on November 2nd.

We owe it to the millions of people that are getting tortured, getting murdered, and suffering around the world to do this. Resist or Die - it has come down to that slogan. If we don'’t resist right now we won'’t have a chance to again. Right now the future is in everybody's hands. It is up to us. The question is what kind of world do you want to live in? Will you accept everything this regime stands for? If you don't, then you must join this movement. Join the school walkouts. Join us on Wilshire Blvd. at 12 noon on November 2nd and in Westwood at the Federal Building at 5pm.

-Sara Escudero from Reseda High School and LJ from Los Angeles High School
This is going on across the US. In Tulsa, Oklahoma the self-proclaimed local organizer is a twenty-something "mobile" DJ who works in local clubs and has signs up all over town for his website to promote the school walkout tomorrow. Don't let your kids be led down the wrong path by this modern day Pied Piper or his associates, who believe disorderly conduct and chaos is the way to change the world. Talk to your kids tonight.
