Celebrating the Holiday

International Human Rights Day, that is!

In observance of the day, The World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime called for people to wear orange jumpsuits at work, at the mall, on the bus to raise consciousness not only about American abuses at Guantanamo, in Iraq, and internationally with the practice of "extreme rendition", but also with the essential legalization of torture with the passage this fall of the Military Commissions Act of 2006.

With Corpus Delicti, I performed on Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica in an orange jumpsuit. Here are a few pictures (thank you James):

It was amazing the number of people who had no idea what the orange jumpsuits meant. I've had a number of people tell me lately that there's no point to political education or teach-ins, because everyone already knows what's going on. If random people making comments at us last night are any indication, a substantial number of people are clueless. (How to educate them is another question...)
