(en) US, Palo Alto, California, News: March Against War, Empire, & Capitalism

Date Fri, 03 Jun 2005 17:59:48 +0300


Meet 7pm . Saturday . June 25 Lytton Plaza in downtown Palo Alto University Ave. at Emerson
Fight Bush ---- There's a war on - a war between the United States government
and the vast majority of the world's population. This war has many
faces - the struggles over globalization, corporate empire, and the
invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan - but everywhere
the same lines are drawn. Everywhere the US government is acting
in the interests of corporations, and everywhere people are being
slaughtered, are starving to death, and are watching their lives be
torn apart and sold for profit.

Stop the War
This war has to stop. The occupation must end, neoliberalism
must be buried, and any attempt to invade Iran must be prevented.
The prediction that the US may not have the military or political
capacity to wage another war must be fulfilled. Already well over
five thousand soldiers have deserted and recruitment is falling far
short of the military's goals. It's our responsibility to insure that the
US government does not maintain a political or social capacity to
continue its war on the world's population.

Destroy Empire
What does this mean? This means we need to step up our
resistance - and we need to do it now! The US can only continue
its devastating economic pursuits if it can rely on our complacency
and the safety of the corporations which it serves. If we act together
to take back control out our own lives, environments, and relations,
present a serious challenge to government power, and inflict
serious economic damage upon the corporations responsible for
this war, they won't be able to invade Iran or even continue the
occupation of Iraq - and they'll be in a lot more trouble than that!

Dismantle Capitalism
It is not enough to oppose one piece of this horrible puzzle - what
we win one place will be taken away somewhere else. From war to
globalization, occupation, and all other attacks on working and
poor people around the world, to their architect, the G8 - it is the
system itself which must be destroyed. As hundreds of thousands
converge on Scotland to prevent the leaders of the world's 8
wealthiest countries from meeting to plan their next attack, we
must mobilize here to resist it. Converge on downtown Palo Alto
this June 25th - destroy their nightmare, make your dreams
possible!


Reclaim the Streets!

A Revolutionary Streetparty, a Suburban Insurrection
On May 20th, hundreds of rebellious youth, students, and workers
converged on downtown Palo Alto. United by an effective critique
of global capitalism - weaving together the dominance of the G8,
the monotony of modern urbanism, and alienated suburban
boredom - local youth, joined by a small number from around the
Bay Area and Central Valley, successfully reclaimed the streets.
Marching behind banners exclaiming "Reclaim the Streets!",
"Resist the G8, Empire, and Global Capital", and "Live Without
Dead Time!", approximately 250 demonstrators (by police and
media estimates) left Lytton Plaza on a march which shutdown the
entire downtown Palo Alto commercial district for well over an
hour.

Reclaim the Streets! Palo Alto
