IRAN: Internal Resistance & U.S. Interventions
On Thursday Sept 20 Saman Sepheri, an Iranian activist, spoke at Wellington Ave. United Church of Christ on IRAN: Internal Resistance & U.S. Interventions. The talk was given in the atmosphere of ever increasing threats of an attack on Iran by the U.S. and/or Israel. The event was sponsored by Protest Chaplains Chicago, World Can’t Wait, American Friends Service Committee, Buddhist Peace Fellowship and more. You can read more on the event here http://protestchaplainschicago.blogspot.com/2012/09/iran-internal-resistance-and-us.html
We in Chicago World Can’t Wait believe that a climate crisis summit can attract both activists and (non-activist) people who are concerned – even distraught – about the devastation of our planet but have not seen a way to act to stop it. By coming together, we can form a network in this area and a foundation for coordinated actions, locally and even nationally. Follow our blog and stay tuned for the next meeting.
Welcome, new friends in Wisconsin!
Chicago World Can’t Wait welcomes dozens of new friends we met last Saturday at the Fighting Bob Fest in Madison, where our friends in No Drones Wisconsin put the issue of drones and this administration’s extrajudicial killings front and center – literally! We had deep conversations with many people who are wrestling with the pull of voting for the ‘lesser’ of two evils. Please stay in touch and let us know what you’re thinking and what we can do together to stop the crimes of our government.
