(en) US, March 18, Call for an Anarchist Contingent in Hollywood - 12 noon, Hollywood and Vine

Date Thu, 16 Mar 2006 21:06:15 +0200

Across the globe the United States colonial machine has raped
innumerable lands and cultures to pursue its ever-expanding
imperialist policies. Displaced people flee their lands in
search of better lives in the first world, but upon arrival
find themselves once again trapped under the system that on
one front, bombs lands and murders the innocent, and on another
economically enslaves billions of us, while we are forced to bow
to our landlords, bosses, and politicians.
As we ascend upon three years of occupation in Iraq, it
becomes more evident to all Americans that not only have we been
manipulated into war, but that our entire social structure is
failing, and it is time for an international movement to rise up
and begin to build a new world, whilst struggling against the old.

March 18th, 2006 we call on all those who oppose war, capitalism
and the state to join us in a revolutionary anarchist contingent.
We will march arm-in-arm and in solidarity with the Youth Justice
Coalition (YJC), an organization made up of young people directly
affected by California’s prison industrial complex. The California
Youth Authority and the greater Prison Industrial Complex are just
constant reminders of the war on the poor that the state wages on
us each and every day, and we believe it is crucial to march with
the YJC and their families who are some of the first casualties of
this war on the poor. We welcome all families, students, and workers
as well as all those interested in learning more about anarchism to
march with us. Look for the red and black flags, and join us!

This March 18th demonstration, we wish to take an otherwise passive
protest, and make it into a participatory event, with varying actions
people can engage in. We will be involved in the following,

-Contingent against Imperialist War, Capitalism, and Authoritarianism,
in all forms.

-The Anti War Strategizing Discussion. We believe it is crucial to
strategize and graph the possibilities of resistance living under what
is becoming more and more of a fascistic state.

-Literature distribution. We can no longer rely on conventional methods
of organizing or education, and must promote alternatives to the corporate
and state’s monopoly on education and propaganda.

-Other activities for all those attending the demonstration.

What to Bring: Banners, Flags, Anti Authoritarian Literature, Water, and
Everyone you know.

Note: This is a call for a non-black bloc anarchist contingent for the
March 18th ANSWER demonstration in Hollywood. We do not wish to be a
confrontational element at this march, for we do not believe that our
regional movement has reached the point where we can be successful in
that arena. Our goal at this march is to be educational and accessible.
As anarchists we recognize that we cannot directly change the mechanisms
of our current system through legal permitted marches alone, but we do
believe that our presence at such marches are a vital way of recruiting,
educating, and networking with others that may share similar values. This,
in turn, will help us grow to the critical point in which we can be
effective in forms of protest that go beyond the legal boundaries outlined
by the state. We must think tactically and act accordingly.

>From the war abroad to the war at home, social injustice is all around
us. It is time to build great walls of resistance and STOP THIS WAR.
