Enough is Enough! March for Direct Democracy! Todo para Todos!
What: DNC2RNC Arrival March from Columbus Circle to Union Square
Where: Columbus Circle When: 5pm, Thursday, August 26th
Rather than representing the interests of the people, both Democrats and
Republicans choose to build systems of violent exploitation. We have
walked 258 miles from the Democratic National Convention and now we arrive
at the Republican National Convention to say "Ya Basta!" Enough is Enough!
As a symbol of reclamation of our city space, and as a gesture of
solidarity with those silenced and oppressed, we will march for those who
cannot be present, we will give a voice to the voiceless, a face to the
faceless, and struggle to build direct democracy. In the spirit of
Zapatismo we seek dignity, justice, housing, autonomy, education, health
care, work and food for all.

We invite all people of varying risk levels to join us on Thursday, August
26, as the march reaches its final destination.

Permits have not been requested or granted because we do not need
permission to unite as civil society. We will not take power, but exercise
it to build democracy. After a brief gathering at Columbus circle the
march will proceed down Broadway past Madison Square Garden, concluding at
Union Square. The march will be escorted by a bike bloc organized by Times
Up! bicyclists and accompanied by an inspiring and creative street theater
piece performed by DNC2RNC marchers and allied affinity groups. In order
to clearly present our message and to minimize harm to participants, we
will act in the spirit of non-violence. We will attempt to de-escalate
violence and, if we need to defend ourselves, we will do so non-violently.

The culmination of our march will be celebrated with rhythm, voices, and
imagination. Please show your support by bringing friends and family to
our arrival.

Throughout our month long march we have participated in a broad range of
community events. As a characteristic finish to our march we will support
South Bronx residents who are fighting to keep their community gardens
from being bulldozed to make way for unaffordable housing. We will then
march from Cortland Ave. and 159 St. in the South Bronx to Columbus Circle
for the Arrival March.

"conceit, arrogance, and egotism are the essentials of patriotism. Let me
illustrate. Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little
spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who have had the fortune
of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler,
grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other
spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to
fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all the
