Mass Worldwide Protest
2004 Republican Convention in New York City

In the last three years, George W. Bush has presided over a radical right-wing takeover of the U.S. government, the ramifications of which have been felt all over the world. Not only has he waged two wars, killing thousands of innocent people, during his short time in office, but he has also implemented a policy of pre-emptive war that violates international law and threatens global security.

On the home front, unemployment soars, the federal budget deficit swells into the billions, and states prepare to slash funding for everything from healthcare to education. Yet, Bush responds with two huge tax cuts that will primarily benefit the wealthy rather than the people who are most in need.

On every issue from environmental regulations and international treaty participation to workers' rights, civil rights and civil liberties George W. Bush has pushed for unprecedented and destructive changes in U.S. foreign and domestic policy that even more sharply favor corporations and the wealthy, especially Bush Administration supporters, at the expense of the people of the world and our environment.

Meanwhile, the Bush Administration shamelessly uses the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001, to justify its aggressive and militaristic policies.

In its most recent attempt to exploit the grief and fear that were provoked by September 11, the Republican Party pushed back its 2004 convention to August 28 through September 2, 2004, and will hold it in New York City, not far from Ground Zero.


On February 15, 2003, millions of people all over the world took to the streets in protest with the message, The World Says No to War. On August 29, 2004, we will come together in New York City and in cities throughout the world to declare, The World Says No to Bush!

We are also organizing a protest for Thursday, Sept. 2, 2004, the day of Bush's official selection as the presidential candidate of the Republican Party.

Initiated by United for Peace and Justice, a U.S. anti-war coalition with more than 600 member groups. UFPJ looks forward to working with many other organizations on these days of protest, so please contact us at if your group wants to work collaboratively on these actions and also to let us know about other actions being planned to coincide with the Republican Convention.

Mediocre times produce the very worst that the world has to offer: Reagan, Bin Laden, Bush, Hussein, Sharon, and Blair. None but the feeble minded could draw inspiration from such a ghastly lineup of "leaders".
