CALL FOR A REVOLUTIONARY ANTI-IMPERIALIST BLOC
Ohio Statewide Anti-War March - November 9, 2002

On November 9, 2002, a call has been issued for a diverse coalition to
descend on Columbus, OH to protest the upcoming war in Iraq.  We as
revolutionary anti-capitalists support this call and are in solidarity
with this demonstration and the groups involved.   At the same time, we
feel like we need our own space to promote our own politics, and are
calling for a Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Bloc.  The Revolutionary
Anti-Imperialist Bloc will act as a separate feeder march, which will
begin at the gates of Columbus State Community College and join up with
the larger anti-war demonstration at the Ohio Statehouse.

As revolutionaries, we have a different perspective on war, capitalism,
and the State.  In addition, we choose to use different tactics to
confront and dismantle these actions and institutions.  The looming war
with Iraq will only be thwarted through material interference in the
capitalist war machine - we recognize that direct action is a key tool
for mounting resistance to the war.  We believe that only the complete
overthrow of capital and the State will prevent imperialist war.

We feel that the real â??Axis of Evilâ?? is right here in our own country
- from the military and prison industrial complexes, to the current
police state and the erosion of our civil liberties, to the current
administrationâ??s alliance and complicity with Big Business.  Not to
mention the fact that it exists in our own backyard; what with Battelle,
a major weapons-grade anthrax production and research facility, and one
of the lead bidders to bring the Office of Homeland Security to Columbus,
headquartered right near the OSU campus.

The â??War on Terrorism,â?? currently rearing its ugly head as an attack
on Iraq, is a naked land grab for regional control over Middle Eastern
and Central Asian oil resources.  In the last 11 years, more than a
million Iraqi civilians, mostly children, have died as a result of our
slow strangulation of the country.  It is clear that George II intends to
complete his fatherâ??s destruction of a whole country.  In order to not
be complicit in further acts of genocide, people of conscious within the
U.S. must begin anew to build resistance to this everlasting war.  The
pace of events and the human cost of our governmentâ??s policies require
firm direct action to stop the death of a people.

It is important for revolutionaries to define our oppositions in our own
terms, with our own words and actions, our own organizations, and our own
politics.  We are calling for all revolutionaries - no matter what
radical flag you may wave - to participate in the Revolutionary
Anti-Imperialist Bloc on November 9, 2002.  We are putting out this call
to start building revolutionary opposition to the war in the state of
Ohio.

Please join us on November 9, 2002 at the corner of Spring Street and
Cleveland Avenue on the Columbus State campus.  We will be meeting up at
12:30 PM and leaving at 12:45 SHARP (this is NOT activist time).  Hope to
see you there!
 
Please stick around after the march, as we are also calling a general
meeting to form a radical anti-war coalition.  More information to
followâ?¦

No War Between Nations, No Peace Between Classes!
Against Fascism, Against Capitalism, Against the State!
For a Free Humanity!

Signed,

Columbus Anti-Racist Action
