This interview was conducted by Antiwar Radio producer Angela Keaton.

Debra Sweet, National Director of World Can’t Wait, discusses her participation in the White House antiwar protests; the pro-WikiLeaks ads in major US papers sponsored by the Australian activist group GetUp; how the candid statement of Defense Secretary Robert Gates dispels the illusion of representative government in the US; Obama’s continuing rightward drift; how the “material support” of terrorism statute criminalizes political speech; and the secret US war in Pakistan revealed by WikiLeaks.

MP3 here. (16:55)

Debra Sweet is the National Director of The World Can’t Wait. The World Can’t Wait organizes people living in the United States to repudiate and stop the fascist direction initiated by the Bush Regime, including: the murderous, unjust and illegitimate occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan; the global “war of terror” of torture, rendition and spying; and the culture of bigotry, intolerance and greed.

This direction cannot and will not be reversed by leaders who tell us to seek common ground with fascists, religious fanatics, and empire. It can only be possible by the people building a community of resistance – an independent mass movement of people – acting in the interests of humanity to stop, and demand prosecution, of these crimes.

But Mr. Maliki was eager to draw a line in his most definitive remarks on the subject. “The last American soldier will leave Iraq” as agreed, he said, speaking at his office in a leafy section of Baghdad’s protected Green Zone. “This agreement is not subject to extension, not subject to alteration. It is sealed.” Let’s start with World Can’t Wait‘s Debra Sweet being interviewed by Angela Keaton (Antiwar Radio). [...]
