In late July, the Democratic National Convention will descend upon Boston. With
their corporate vanguard will come street closures, mass arrests, blockades,
walls, militarized police, and a clear demonstration of force by henchmen of
capitalism. Those of us here, who are ignored by the mathematics of power, are
preparing to resist this invasion. For months now, we have been working
feverishly to setup the logistics for this carnival of resistance. Based upon
discussions during a Consulta held in early February, we are proposing a
three-pronged plan of action for the convergence.
Plan of Action
1. The first leg will be an open-air bazaar and concert. The underlining purpose
of this public event will be to demonstrate that corporations do not hold a
monopoly on entertainment, and that participation is more empowering than being
a spectator. We can organize and celebrate without the influences of profit.

2. The second aspect will be a diverse convergence center that will
also support independent media resources, medical aid, food not bombs
and many other community services.

3. The final prong is a call for massive decentralized actions in opposition to
the DNC. This format will not only allow for a full spectrum of tactics and
messages, but also serves as the most logical advancement in a continuing
evolution of ideas and strategies for direct action.

We will resist the DNC with all of our might. We will make the delegates realize
we do not want them in our fair city. We will refuse to recognize the State and
we will continue to fight against the crook that is nominated. We will not ask
for freedom, we will demand it. In order to extend our base of support we have
added a link to donate money to the Bl(A)ck Tea Society on our website. This
will allow even those who cannot make the journey to Boston this summer to
support us in demonstrating our dissent. This money will allow us to organize a
convergence center and autonomous zone; host a free open-air bazaar and
concert; and fund the legal defense of our comrades arrested by police
repression during the convention. For those who come aid in the defense of
Boston, we will welcome you with open arms, as we join together in resistance.
Your support is deeply needed and appreciated.
