Local San Francisco anarchists and anti-authoritarians
have put together a ballot initiative to have San
Francisco seceed from the US. It's registered with
city hall, everything's legal, we just have to get
10,000 signatures in the next month and a half or so
and it will go on the november ballot. If the majority
approves it in november, San Francisco will legally
and peacefully declare itself absolved of all alligience
to the United States, and the Board of Supervisors will
be instructed to amend the city charter accordingly.

This is 100% serious. Our goal is to use the legal
system to legally and peacefully seceed from the US.
The federal and state governments do not represent the
people, so it's time for us to represent ourselves.
This has an obvious bearing on all elements of
struggle, from racial and economic justice issues to
immigrant rights to enviornmental policy to gay rights
to womens rights - this is something that will help
all of us.

The implications of such a legal action - in terms of
directly attacking the authority and sovereignity of
the US Federal government - should be obvious.

We're organizing a group of people to canvas
door-to-door all over the city in order to raise money
and collect signatures. If you're down to put in some
time or donate money, hit us up at
