(en) US, San Francisco, : Revolutionary Anti-Capitalist Convergence Against the War 11am 16th & Mission Plaza September 24

Date Sat, 20 Aug 2005 19:08:34 +0300

The fires of war rage in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and across the
globe. The United States empire continues to murder hundreds of thousands
of people the world over, establishing regimes and destroying peoples to
satisfy a never-ending lust for wealth, resources, and global power. A
program of U.S. bombings, economic sanctions, and occupation has had
genocidal consequences in Iraq. The Empire now has its sights set on Iran.
Inside the heart of the empire, the rich are slashing workers’ real wages,
benefits, pensions, and social services. Here in San Francisco they are
reaping the benefits of burdening the working class by raising fares and
cutting services on MUNI public transportation. They too are ripping
communities apart through greedy redevelopment schemes and gentrification.
Down on the border, racist, white nationalists, the Minutemen and their
politician allies are mobilizing forces using the social atmosphere of
nationalist racism that was whipped up by 9/11 and the Iraq war to justify
their vigilante actions and racist legislation. This is the same racist
and anti-immigrant social atmosphere, created in large part by the
corporate media that is controlled by the government, that has led to
thousands of hate crimes, including violent ones, against Middle Eastern,
South Asian, and Muslims.

On Sep. 24, A.N.S.W.E.R., UFPJ, and others are calling for mass protests
against the war, which will remain largely routine and symbolic.
Coincidently Sep. 24 is when the major capitalist financial institutions,
the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, are meeting in
Washington, D.C. to make plans for further corporate and imperial control.
Anarchist Action is calling for a revolutionary Anti-Capitalist Convergence
Against the War that same day - take the streets to resist the war and the
system behind it! As long as there is capitalism - and the state to
support it - this perpetual state of war, racism, sexism, and xenophobia
will continue.

Anarchists are involved in building a mass revolutionary movement and are
using direct action to resist capitalism, war, the state, and all forms of
social oppression (such as racism, patriarchy, heterosexism, etc.). The
mainstream anti-war movement has been stuck in routine, boring, and
reformist models that have not provided a serious threat to the war and,
more importantly, the system behind it. Symbolic marches and petitioning
legislators have not proven effective in stopping the war. Unlike the
established Left, we do not seek to control or lead protesters or the
movement. Instead, we seek to provide a directly democratic space where
people can use a diversity of tactics in autonomous resistance and be
actively engaged in the fight for freedom, liberation, and social

Converge on 16th and Mission Plaza, 11am, September 24 to resist the state
of perpetual war and the system behind it!

Anarchist Action
is an open forum for the facilitation and coordination of autonomous
revolutionary anarchist resistance. Autonomous initiatives exist across
the West Coast and Midwest - check our contact page to get involved!
