A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

On the evening of May 20, Direct Action anti-authoritarian activists
from the White Mountain Autonoma, AnarchoNinjas, and the Trained
Monkee Collective came together to 'tag' every pay phone in Nashua,
NH with a sticker that reads, "This Phone is Bugged" in large letters,
citing the relevant section (Section 215) of the Patriot Act 2001
authorizing this in smaller print. An example of the stickers may be
viewed at http://www.crimethinc.com/cards/28_med.gif. The stickers
are placed upon the telephone receivers.
Intended to create situations where the average mass media-deadened
citizen of Nashua is confronted with the current political reality of life
under Bush II and his attack dogs of Homeland Security,Nashua was
chosen as the introductory site for "Operation Wake The Fuck Up" due
to its large population, strategic location on the NH-Massachusetts
border (thousands of Bay Staters shop in Nashua daily to avoid
Massachusetts sales tax), and the critical role it plays in the NH
Presidential Primaries as the first large population block to report its'
poll returns.

There are approximately 400 pay phones in Nashua, locate in the
various shopping malls, pubs, public buildings, stores, restaurants, and
hotels - including the 8 pay phones in the lobby of the Sheraton Tara,
preferred home-away-from-home for Bush II when in the greater Boston
area, due to its isolation and 'security'.

Additional activities are planned for the near future, including mock
"stop-and-search" actions, imitating the activities of Homeland Security
and its componant bureaus and agencies. These will be very similar to
the mock "search-and-destroy" missions used to great effect by
Vietnam Veterans Against The War during the anti-Vietnam War years,
in which activists, dressed as ordinary people, are pulled out from the
innocent spectators and are mock-abused in true government style.

Activists wishing to join the fun may contact the White Mountain
Autonoma at wma@datasquire.net.
