An e-mail from World Can't Wait Los Angeles dated 12-31-05
Friends and fellow organizers
Attached is a PDF of the LA Times article in Friday's
California section. Also, attached is a copy of the
student petition created to build support for the
students that walked out of school on Nov 2nd.

the movement to drive out the Bush Regime on the map.
It's important that our media supporters grasp the
significance of this movement. We are more than just
another anti war group. We are calling for Bush to
Step Down and take his program with him. Please send
your comments to the LA Times right away so as to

office so we know what has been sent to the Times.
Also, please download and make copies of the student
petition. Get your friends and co-workers to sign it.
Use it as an opportunity to talk about the need for
this movement and the special role that youth and
students are playing within it.
Let's get moving and build for the State of the Union
(emergency) and the demand in Washington DC that Bush
