Ever thought that protestors and squatters and activists of all stripes
could use a boost every now and then in their fight for their freedoms?
Personally, it pains me every time I see someone on the streets using a
frs radio or a cell phone to communicate with their friends or affinity
groups or when the fascist state uses new exotic weapons for defeating
dissent easily.
For the past couple of years there has been several of us that act under
the banner of ahas (anarchist hackers against the state) and we have
spent many days and nights racking our brains on how we can at least better
defend our autonomy or even make active attacks against the authoritarians
that would rather see us lying in puddles of blood. We deny the notion
that protests, or random acts of sabotage can do anything to make a dent
in state oppression; although it is fun! ;) What we need is to fight
fire with fire and obtain the means to communicate, travel, organize,
etc. safely and efficiently. Enter the information age where wars are
fought with televised propaganda and many lives revolve around cell
fones and the internet, where many many anti-authoritarians wish to
destroy or at the very least not utilize these tools. However, it is
with these tools and more that we are presented the blade that can cut
through the heart of the state. How much money can be lost on the NYSE
or the federal advantage system (where trillions of dollars are traded
each day!) before severe economic problems are had by the state? What
happens when you start stealing as much electricity as you want or need from
power lines by inducting it via coils of wire? What happens when prisons
start crumbling because their resonant frequencies have been hit and our
comrades can escape from their hell holes? What happens when millions of
people who are expecting Bill O'Reilly on Fox see an expose on what
really happened on 911?
To this end the como ahas collective has been organizing for the past
year an entirely free, autonomous, horizontally organized
anti-authoritarian festival in the missouri forests this March 25th -
April 2nd, 2005. This festival, started out as a simple diy skillshares
and werkshops campout involving things from biodiesel to pirate radio to
circuit-bending and everything else anyone would want to do. Since it's
original announcement last late summer/fall now it looks like a huge pot
of stone soup with everyone throwing in their own special ingredient.
Many musical groups have stepped forward including rave/hiphop djs,
hardcore/crust bands, flutists, and others that will undoubtedly show
up. However, word has spread to MANY people including traveller kids,
university kids, hackers, hippies, etc so it will be extremely
interesting to see such a wide diverse group of people gathering for the
Our main info page is up at www.ahas.net and sometime before two weeks
of the festival (to leave plenty of time for those travelling) we shall
post the directions on the page to the site, as well as our toll free
infoline. We will also be providing free shuttle service from a couple
of towns to the site--as sometimes those last 20-30 miles are hard to
hitch ;)
So tell your friends and find a ride to central missouri. While there
might be a chance of either snow or rain during the week dress
appropriately cause we are doing this fest regardless of weather, or the
state interfering.

no coast like the no coast,
