(en) US, Seattle, GREY COAST ANARCHIST NEWS*: Decolonize the New World 2012

Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 12:11:59 +0300

CALL TO ACTION – Columbus Day marks the 520 year anniversary of the genocidal and ecocidal project of Empire building and colonial expansion that began with the conquistador invasion of this continent and continues to this day through the daily violence and exploitation of global capitalism. ---- It also marks the 20 year anniversary of the first American Black Bloc which disrupted the 1992 Columbus Day Parade in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. ---- This year during columbus day weekend, a West Coast Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist convergence is being organized in San Francisco: ---- http://decolonizethenewworld.noblogs.org/sat-oct-6/ ---- In Solidarity with this effort, we are calling for friends and comrades to gather at 2pm Saturday, October 6 for an Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist march on the heart of Seattle’s shopping/financial district, including the Mexican and Canadian Consulates that reside within our city.

We draw inspiration from the countless struggles of indigenous resistance to capitalist projects of development and expansion: from the mountains of Black Mesa, where elders fiercely protect their way of life in the shadow of a coal mine, to the rebel autonomous municipality of Chéran in Michoacán, México where both the repressive forces of the state and the drug cartels have been expelled while loggers infringing upon indigenous territory have been chased off communal lands, to the far north of Canada where indigenous peoples block roads and disrupt plans for expanding resource extraction while students and radicals in Montreal riot outside the gates of the Plan du Nord summit. These brave fighters motivate us to spread the fires of resistance in the ongoing struggles against colonialism and capitalism.

We will honor the memories of all those who fought back and resisted the onslaught of empire over the past five centuries by unleashing the power of our own resistance in the various hearts of capitalism on the West Coast. We are proud to stand in solidarity with others whose fierce struggles continue to hold off the machinery of domination and exploitation.

It is also fitting that October 7 marks the 11 year anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan, another brutal example of colonial domination’s recent manifestations. We invite all those who stand in opposition to Empire and in solidarity with the struggles of the Afghan people to join us on this march.

The Decolonize the New World 2012: Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist Action will gather at Westlake Center Park for a rally at 2pm and the march will begin at 3pm sharp. Stay tuned for additional details and ways to get involved.

Please Invite Friends, Family, Lovers & Revolutionaries!

This action, to take place in Seattle, is in Solidarity with Decolonize the New World 2012: West Coast Anti-Colonial, Anti-Capitalist Convergence in San Francisco, CA. during Indigenous Peoples Day (columbus day) weekend. The convergence is being called for by Decolonize and Anti-Capitalist comrades in the Pacific Northwest and Bay Area. Spread the Word!!!
* Grey Coast Anarchist News (greycoast.wordpress.com) is a Northwest anarchist resources site. The focus is on spaces and groups that can be connected with, for interconnecting our struggles bio-regionally. It will take some time to develop the links, similar to Infoshop.org’s “Anarchist Neighborhood” wiki project, but you can help by sending anything relevant. We’ll include links to local anarchist projects in as many places we can link to, as well as resources and ways to find out what’s going on in the Northwest. Check out the new films made by anarchists page at the top, and the music links.
