No U.S. Attack on Syria!

On Friday afternoon, September 6th, about 20 people responded to World Can't Wait Hawai`i's call to protest U.S. plans to bomb Syria. Some came with their own signs; others picked up signs that had been made by World Can't Wait. One young woman said she didn't know it was happening but was so angry she was just carrying her sign with her when she heard we were protesting at the Federal Building and joined. A man who was driving by saw the protest, found parking and joined up.

Standing along Ala Moana Blvd during Friday afternoon rush hour, thousands of people stuck in stop-and- go traffic had time to read signs and respond. Some people honked their car horns, others held thumbs up or gave us a peace sign; others shot a shaka, while the majority passed by without indicating whether they agreed or disagreed.

For news of further protests be sure you're on the world can't wait mailing list. Just send an e-mail to and ask to be added to the e-list.

No U.S. Attacks on Syria!

Signholding and Protest!
Friday, Sept 6, 4-6pm
at the Federal Building along Ala Moana Blvd.

Vigorous protests raising the demand “No U.S. Attack on Syria!” are planned across the U.S. in the next few days. World Can’t Wait and dozens of other organizations are taking to the streets from New York City to Honolulu, and from Portsmouth, New Hampshire to Seattle.

World Can't Wait will have signs or you can bring your own.

The National Office of World Can't Wait said today: “Any U.S. military attack upon Syria would be the supreme international war crime of a war of aggression upon a country that has not attacked and does not threaten the United States. Obama's unverified claims of nerve gas being used are merely an excuse for the U.S. to try to dictate the terms of this civil war that has already cost 100,000 lives. Any attacks would greatly increase the killing and destruction and likely provoke a wider regional conflict. These attempts to justify and carry out war crimes in our names must be opposed vigorously and with determination by all those with a conscience.”

Even if Congress Says It's Legal, It's Still WRONG to Attack Syria;
Congress Can't Make a War Crime Moral;
OBOMBA Targets Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan….Syria?
