> posted by Shirts Off Coalition on
Anarchist Events call to action for weekend of April 12-14.
The Shirts Off Affinity Group of Washington, DC will be
supporting the call for anti-capitalists and anarchists to
meet on Sat April 12th as a contingent in the March
Against the War on Iraq. We'll meet on Saturday at 12
noon at 7th street and Madison avenue NW in the
Sculpture Garden just across the street from the National
Gallery of Art (West building). We hope that
anti-capitalists, anti-authoritarians, and revolutionaries
will join this call to create a sea of hope and resistance for
a better world.

The Shirts Off Affinity Group will also be marching as a
Revolutionary Anti-Capitalist Contingent in the March
Against Military and Economic Intervention in Latin
America and the Caribbean. Starting at Malcolm X Park
on Sunday April 13th. ?TIME?pm We'll meet at the corner
of the park closest too 15th and Euclid Streets. Look for
Anti-Capitalist banners and black flags.

While Bush continues his endless war, waging death and
destruction on the people of Iraq, sending U.S. troops and
bolstering repressive forces throughout Latin America,
waging a war on the poor in the U.S., and moving closer to
Free trade Agreements in Latin America. A storm is
brewing to the South. From Argentina to El Salvador, from
Bolivia to Immokalee, Florida, the people of the Americas
are rising to challenge US Imperialism and global
capitalism.

This weekend, thousands of people from across the United
States and Latin America will converge on Washington,
DC to stand in solidarity with the people of Latin America
as we say: "No to Military and Economic Intervention:
Autonomy and Self Determination for Latin America and
the Caribbean! Stop the War on Iraq!"

Now is a particularly important time to stand in solidarity
with peoples movements in the Americas. It is a time of
great repression but it is also a time of great resistance. In
Bolivia spontaneous rebellions are erupting in response to
structural adjustment programs, in El Salvador health care
workers are challenging healthcare privatization with
takeovers and blockades, in Argentina the popular
assemblies and worker controlled factories continue to
blossom, in one of the most significant demonstrations of
non-hierarchical organization and resistance to capitalism
in recent history. As Anti-Capitalists and
Anti-Authoritarians, its crucial for us to support the people
of Latin America who are, in many ways, leading the fight
against imperialism and global capitalism.

The Shirts Off Affinity Group will be marching as a
Revolutionary Anti-Capitalist Contingent on Sat April 12th
against the War on Iraq. We'll meet on Saturday at 12
noon at 7th street and Madison avenue NW in the
Sculpture Garden just across the street from the National
Gallery of Art (West building).

... And in the March Against Military and Economic
Intervention in Latin America and the Caribbean. The
rally starts at 11am at Malcolm X Park on Sunday April
13th. We'll gather to march 30 minutes before the march
leaves, meet at the corner of the park closest too 15th and
Euclid Streets. Look for Anti-Capitalist banners and black
flags.

On the 13th, we'll march respecting the LASC call for a
non-confrontational march, and encourage all those
interested to take direct action at other points during this
weekend and during the mobilization. In particular we
encourage autonomous direct action on strategic targets in
the capital of the war machine on Monday April 14 in
Solidarity with the LASC call.

We invite all those down with Revolution, and an end to
the state and capitalism to join us in these marches. Check
out our points of unity:

*For Struggles of Liberation and Against Imperialist War!*
*Pro-Community, Anti-Capitalist!* *For Creativity, Direct
Action and Visible Resistance!* *For Revolution, Against
the State!*

*For Struggles of Liberation and Against Imperialist War!*
*We are in total opposition to all imperialist wars, which
are waged for economic superiority, the exploitation of
labor and the resources of a foreign land, and the
repression of dissent. We are equally opposed to wars
intiated by a state communist regime, a state capitalist
regime or a religious fundamentalist regime. However, we
believe that people who are fighting against oppression
have a right to self-defense and a right to resist their
oppression by any means neccessary. We support
oppressed peoples' struggles for liberation from
colonization, domination and exploitation.

*Pro-Community, Anti-Capitalist!* *We are anti-capitalist,
and denounce all forms of exploitation and oppression,
including sexism, racism and hetrosexism. We reject a
system driven by an exploitative logic that sees and treats
human beings as tools and machines, ecosystems as
resources, and culture as simply a commodity. We reject
the idea that the world is only valuable in terms of profit,
competition and efficiency. We assert a worldview based
on the respect of our differences and the autonomy of
groups, individuals and all peoples to determine their own
liberation.

*For Creativity, Direct Action and Visible Resistance!*
*Respecting a diversity of tactics, we use a variety of
creative initiatives, ranging between popular education to
direct action to make resistance visible. We will not allow
the state to dictate or control our forms of resistance.

*For Revolution, Against the State!* *We are
revolutionaries, and stand in defiance of the current
political system. We are anti-authoritarian, use consensus
decision making and are non-hierarchical.
