"Army of One" vs. "Army of Fun"
The Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) occupied the
The Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) was out in force in Oakland today. Inspired by another group that played music and blockaded the recruitment center a few weeks ago, we decided to pay it a visit of our own.
We went to see if us clowns could fly big planes and drive big cars too, but the army people were too serious and tried to kick us out. Once we played some games and explained consensus to them, they were a little happier with us. We decided their army was boring and set up our own recruiting table for the "Army of Fun" outside while the rest of us tried to get them to laugh.
After like 45 minutes, the Oakland Police showed up and made us all leave. We were sad to leave the fun party inside, but I think the army people just wanted an excuse for a day off, because right after we left, they shut down the office and headed home. We stuck around and convinced a number of pedistrians to join our army, then marched around downtown Oakland spreading an anti-war message.
Thanks to the Permaculture Army and Copwatch for their support.
Entering the recruitment center
First the recruiter wasn't so happy...
But after falling all over ourselves,
And showing our toughness,
He looked a little happier.
We decided we looked better than the army of one,
So we started clown-ter recruiting,
Including the military themselves.
After a long consensus meeting,
And much more silliness,
The police finally came,
And kicked us out.
They shut down the building
We made our own sign which was better,
And had a dance party as they left.
