Call for Spanish Translators
We are calling on bilingual people to help us translate World Can't Wait
materials into Spanish. We have already developed a small team, but we need to
expand so that more gets posted on the Spanish website and in a more timely
manner: all the calls, reports and summations of actions, statements from the
national committee and prominent supporters, as well as the many articles that
give depth to why we need to "Drive Out the Bush Regime". Once these appear on
the website, they can be downloaded by English and well as Spanish-speakers and
distributed wherever Spanish is spoken.
It is clear that a major feature of the Bush program is to round up and
deport immigrants from south of the border. Warrants for a few "undocumented
criminals" turn into raids of buses, neighborhoods and factories that sweep up
everyone with a brown face that can't prove at that moment that they have
a right to be in the country. This is part of the fascist program. La Opinión
reports (4/23/08) that the Bush regime even has a little-known plan called
"Endgame" that will span 10 years and aims to throw "all removable undocumented"
people out of the country. This must stop!
We have seen in the massive immigrant rights protests of a few years back
that when this "sleeping giant" awakens, it can inspire people of all
nationalities and all walks of life. Oftentimes in the last few years, the
Spanish media has given more and better coverage to World Cant Wait events than
the mainstream English media. Let's make sure that the Spanish media has access
to World Can't Wait materials and that Spanish-speaking people are able to take
up the politics of this movement and contribute to it.
So far, we have developed an audience for the Spanish website that extends
beyond the borders of this country. We have received emails from people
internationally who demand to know why we haven't gotten rid of Bush already and
are willing to do what they can in their country to make that happen. Let's make
sure that they get the information and materials in their language to do
If you want to contribute to the clamor --in different languages and
different countries-- to drive out the Bush regime and reverse its program,
please volunteer to help translate. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
