Denouncing Torture and "Zero Dark Thirty" in Hollywood

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 22 February 2013

Debra Sweet, Director, The World Can't Wait                          It happened on The Hollywood Walk of Shame. World Can't Wait joined with ICUJP and other groups in a march and vigil that took over the intersection at Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave for about 45 minutes on Sunday, Feb 17. This is the famous scene where Oscars will be awarded in one week. Actor David Clennon spoke at a nearby church and then led the group of about 40 people, all ages, down to the Avenue of the Stars.

The group took over 4 corners of this famous intersection, passed out fliers denouncing the film's justificiation of torture and the degradation and horrible abuse of human beings as a feasible option in the US war of terror on the world. We met people who eagerly took up the fliers and thanked us for taking a public stand. Others wordlessly stared at the jumpsuits-many took pictures-some looked shocked or taken aback to see this display of renunciation in the heart of Oscar land... and others shouted their support of the movie and support for torture.
