If you're not already, it's time to get organized. The Republican
National Convention is coming to NYC in less than a month and
already hundreds of affinity groups are getting it together to make
trouble during possibly the most militarized Republican Convention in history.
Trouble for whom??
For war profiteers, for donors to the RNC, for those who are driving
this system of prisons, profit and war, and trouble for the global Elite.
Philly is getting it together to co-ordinate plans for direct actions
in NY! We’ve been meeting as a miniature spokescouncil for
the last few weeks, but we’re few and need critical mass. So
far some creative ideas have been brewing including plugging
into some bigger actions like:

AUGUST 29
Reclaim the Park
In response to Republican and city efforts to close Central Park
to protests, thousands will converge on the park to take back
public space.Join the Philadelphia cluster of affinity groups in the
Kick the Heads of State soccer game (only symbolic
representations this time).

and at night, Chaos on Broadway
Republicans imagine they will be carousing on Broadway,
watching shows, drinking martinis, and laughing at anti-war
protesters coralled safely away from delegates by police. Or so
they think. In the meantime hundreds are gearing up for creative
and militant direct action to spoil their parties.

AUGUST 31
A day of non-violent civil disobedience and direct action against
the RNC
Tentatively planning on actions focusing on detentions of
immigrants since 9-11 and the death of Palestinian activist
Farouk Abdel Muhti, Philly will be planning on representing as a
distinct part of a much bigger day of resistance against
Republicans and Empire!

We’re also in the process of co-ordinating Philly affinity
groups with our own own legal support, medics, media, bail
funds as well as housing and a common plan of action.

"defenestrator the a newspaper of refusal and optimism"
"Us here at defenestrator don't adhere to a strictly defined
ideology, but we generally derive our ideas from an anarchist
or autonomist tradition, which proposes a revolutionary
transformation of society, the abolition of property and of
all hierarchies and coercive power."
