Although the main point of demonstrations against NATO summit in
Prague is for sure militarism and upcoming war in Iraq, these
protests are aimed also against capitalism itself. Protests in Prague
therefore give us an opportunity to loudly manifest international
solidarity with similar anticapitalist demonstrations over the world.

One example which deserve international support is Argentina, where
protests which were anticapitalist in nature turned into real
uprising. The majority of world corporate media told us about massive
street battles and several government abdications in one week of last
December. But this media are not interested in following situation,
which have been continued to nowdays. We, anarchists, are.

Barricades were extinguished and street protests scattered by police
and military, but the resistance continue. People don't trust any
government and create "neighbourhood assemblies" which are not
controlled by official state power. Through this assemblies people
try to manage their local issues. There is also a big
"inter-assembly" where all "neighbourhood assemblies" are represented
and where bigger issues are solved. But not only this - also street
protests cacerolas and highway blockades of unemployed Piqueteros
still continue.

As the act of solidarity with Argentina protest we decided to call
Anarchist Solidarity Block with Argentina during demonstrations in
Prague. We first meet on November 17 demo and even on November 21 on
the main action day, but our loudest protest will be heart on
November 20 during demonstration before the place of luxury dinner of
summit delegates (Obecni dum).

This luxury dinner is the best opportunity to show solidarity with
those dying by hunger because of capitalism. In the same time, our
block will say them: WE ARE EVERYWHERE.

The meeting point of Anarchist Solidarity Block with Argentina is
each time at the banner "V¹ichni jsme Argentinci" (We are all
Argentineans). Bring everything, which could be eaten from and which
make noise: pots, pans, mess-tins... It's the noise by this stuff
which became the symbol of traditional street protests cacerolas. If
you would like to wear the mask, bring a T-shirt - traditional way of
masking in Argentina.

Show people of Argentina they are not alone! Support the Anarchist
Solidarity Block with Argentina!
