A coalition of London activists is hoping that this year's Halloween
will be one to remember, for politicians at least. Disobedients, a
newly formed network of anarchists and other anti-militarists, has
issued what its members said last week was 'an audacious
challenge' to the government. They're calling on people to meet
outside the Houses of Parliament on 31st October, dressed in
white ...

"We are all ghosts, phantoms of the periphery, the discarded, the
dead of all wars. We are those who are invisible and voiceless,
those who are ignored by the charade of 'democracy' which beats
the drums of war that lead us without consent towards untold
destruction and global chaos.
But on Halloween, long known as mischief night, a time of change
and transformation, the ghosts will take to the streets and become
visible again. On that night everyone is invited to dress in white,
disguised as ghosts, and converge on parliament, which we'll
occupy in order to participate in a mass popular assembly.
Through this act, we'll desert their 'democracy' and take back our
voices, reclaiming direct control of our lives. We'll show that
politics isn't made by the few but by the many, and we'll declare
our disobedience publicly. On Halloween the ghosts will become
the 'disobedients'.
We'll pledge to do everything in our power to stop the threatened
war on Iraq, by direct action and sabotaging the war effort.
Hundreds of thousands of us marched against the war last month,
but traditional demonstrations alone won't stop the warmongers.
In Britain, we're in the unique position of being able to stop a war
from happening. The government is the major international backer
of the US administration and, if it pulls out, the US will be
completely isolated. We can force the British government to
withdraw its support. We can stop the seemingly out-of-control
juggernaut dead in its tracks."

Meet outside the Houses of Parliament, 6pm, Thursday 31st
October.
The Stop the War Coalition has designated this year's Halloween
as a day of direct action against war.

Sunday 20th October at 3pm: Organising meeting of the
Disobedients Network, Conway Hall, Red Lion Square WC1
(nearest tube Holborn)
Thursday 31st October at 2pm Halloween Critical Mass 'ride
against death', meet by the peace camp outside the Imperial War
Museum, Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, Lambeth Road SE1.
Dress scary.
At 5pm Demonstrate against the war, Brixton Oval.
