Talk by Ann Wright
"Shut Down Guantanamo NOW!"

On the 13th Anniversary of the opening of the notorious Guantanamo Prison, Ann Wright will speak about the current status of the prison, the condition of the remaining prisoners, and the U.S. government's "torture report".  Her talk will be preceded by a showing of the short video:  "Where is Fahd".  For more facts about Guantanamo read Things People Should Know About Guantanamo

Film Screening:  "Obvious Child"
at Revolution Books

January 22 is the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision and the right-wing fanatics are gearing up to use the full power of a Republican House and Senate to overturn it.   World Can't Wait-Hawai`i will have a march on the 22nd (see below) but we urge you to join us at this totally hilarious and heartbreaking abortion-themed film.   If you've seen the film, see it again!  If you've never seen it, don't miss it.

Monday, January 19, 9am at Magic Island
Join our Contingent in the MLK Day Parade!
Ferguson is Everywhere!
Black Lives Matter!
#We Can't Breathe!

Outraged by police brutality and police murder?   Encouraged by the emerging movement of resistance?   Be part of it by joining our contingent at the MLK Day Parade! 

Gather at Magic Island by 9am.  We'll have a flatbed truck with big blue earth flags so we'll be easy to find.  You can ride on the flatbed, walk in the contingent, skate or skateboard.   Bring your family!   Make signs and put together a huge crew of friends, neighbors and family members!  If your kids are too small to walk the route bring  stroller or wagon.   Bring your drums and noisemakers and join an impromptu drumming group on the truck.   Make this fun, visible and energetic!

The parade goes from Magic Island to Kapiolani Park on Kalakaua Avenue.  There's a Unity Rally at the park with entertainment, booths and food.   However, our truck will also be returning to Ala Moana Park immediately after the parade if you want to go back to get your car. 

Remember your water and sunscreen!

Thursday, January 22, 4pm-6pm
Gather in front of the State Capitol
Signholding from 4pm-4:30
March through downtown begins at 4:30pm

Across the country, women's right to abortion is in a state of emergency – and the future of women hangs in the balance. Having and raising a child can be a wonderful thing. But, forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement.

This January 22nd, the anniversary of the legalization of abortion, there will be huge “March for Life” actions in DC and San Francisco.   Anti-Choice forces will also be holding a rally at the State Capitol on the 22nd and we'll be holding signs along Beretania.   Then at 4:30 we'll leave the Capitol and head for Bishop as people leave their office buildings with our demand:  "Abortion On Demand and Without Apology."   Join us!  Refuse to allow the right-wing fanatics to claim the high moral ground or go unopposed in the broad stage of society and calling out to millions to join in this fight for a woman's right to choice!.
