Debra Sweet

National Director World Can’t Wait

Previously Aired On: Wednesday, June 18, 2008 – Listen to the Show!

Debra Sweet is the National Director of World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime. Richard Nixon refused to speak to the press for six months after the US invasion of Cambodia. When he finally appeared before the White House press corps, it was to make awards for service and bravery to Young Americans, whom he said were “not out protesting.” I was 19. When he handed me the award, I told him that he was responsible for killing millions of people in southeast Asia. He got angry, turned and left the room, making a front page story and international news.

Antiwar sentiment had seeped into the Blue Room and was pervading every part of US society – not to mention the world. The Emperor had no clothes, and when someone says that; an Eartha Kitt, a Debra Sweet, a Cindy Sheehan, it can galvanize others to speak and act on the truth. There are millions out there who can take inspiration, and act.

Debra has been active for 40 years against U.S. military intervention into other countries, and in support of women’s access to reproductive rights, particularly in defending abortion providers. She has studied and opposed the rise of the Christian fundamentalist theocracy in the U.S., and is committed to critical thought and a secular society.

  1. Debra is the most honest, kind, thoughtful, and perceptive leader working as an activist. We learned when she was 19 (as did Nixon) that she was invariably correct and we would do well to listen to her, and we thought Bush would take heed. World Can’t Wait through her leadership and use of orange as the symbol for torture at Abu Graib and Quantanamo has inspired thousands to wear orange and protest the illegal occupation of Iraq and call for Impeachment of Bush and Cheney.

  2. Debra has been an inspiration to me. I’ve come into activism late in my life and can say with great assurance, it’s never too late. I wear an orange ribbon every day to support impeachment of the war criminals, to say end torture, and to say RESIST. I’ll be going to Denver in August to protest at the DNC the direction this country has taken. Join me. RESIST what is evil in this world.

  5. Nice info! Would you believe I found this site by mistake. I was doing research for tonsil information and stumbled across this page. LOL… I don’t know how but then couldn’t help but read over it. I’m going to add this blog post on my bookmarks website so my visitors can see it. Tonsil stones are often handled as a health practitioner problem or maybe a dental care make a difference since it is within the mouth.

  6. Affiliate marketing is an elaborate job which can give you lots of big paychecks if you do it right. Many people aspire to get into this business but if you don’t know the right way to do the job you’ll be just like them, failures. So if you want to succeed, read on below for some tips on how affiliate marketing works:

    Make your webpage unique for each product you want to market. It won’t do you any good if you choose to lump them all together in one site, not neat and not user friendly, it’s doubtful that you can attract any customers with these strategy. It is greatly advised that you take one webpage and use it to promote just one product. Make your webpage attractive, easy to follow and with links added at the right places; a webpage where when your viewers sees it they won’t get bored and continue reading on your sites content until they get interested in the product you market and eventually buys it.

  7. Look it up on any forum and you will see many positive results. There have been a few side effects posted but that is due to overuse and not sticking to the recommended dosage. You may however experience slight dehydration even with the recommended dosage but that’s not surprising considering the ingredients include creatine
