We are calling on West Coast anti-authoritarians and anti-capitalists to join us on March 19th, and help us bring the operations of these war profiteers to a standstill. We will be meeting on March 19th at Market and Sansome in San Francisco, beginning at 7:30 AM. Actions will be ongoing throughout the day.
ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN CALL TO ACTION
MARCH 19, 2008
SAN FRANCISCO

March 19, 2008 is the fifth anniversary of the U.S. government’s brutal invasion and occupation of Iraq. Five years in which over $2.8 trillion dollars has been spent on a bloated U.S. military. Five years in which hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been killed by brutal U.S. aggression. Five years in which U.S. capitalists have raked in profits at the expense of the Iraqi people.

On this date, Direct Action to Stop the War – a decentralized, unaffiliated, and anti-authoritarian network of Bay Area activists which organized the shutdown of the San Francisco financial district on March 20, 2003 – is organizing a day of direct action against corporate war profiteers and government agencies in downtown San Francisco.

Over the past years, mass protests – organized and tightly controlled by socialist front groups – have dwindled in size, and have become exercises in passivity. We believe that the time is long overdue for a radical, anti-authoritarian anti-war movement to step up, and send a clear message to the economic and political elites that control this country: No business as usual until all U.S. troops are withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan!

We are calling on West Coast anti-authoritarians and anti-capitalists to join us on March 19th, and help us bring the operations of these war profiteers to a standstill. We believe that warfare is a systemic problem, and that the only way to rid the earth of this problem is to remove the structures of capitalism and authority.

We are calling on you to come to San Francisco on March 19th – whether to organize your own decentralized and independent action, or to join other anti-authoritarians in taking a stand against capitalism, authority, and endless war.

We also ask you to respect local activist communities, and to remember that the effects of your actions endure long after you’ve left town. Please act strategically, and avoid endangering those who are participating in lockdowns.

We will be meeting on March 19th at Market and Sansome in San Francisco, beginning at 7:30 AM. Actions will be ongoing throughout the day.

Join us, and help us make March 19, 2008, a day that the ruling class of this country will not soon forget!

Hi gang!

The MaStars (Mothers Against Stuff That Ain't Right) (anti-capitalism-ists) are with you in spirit and thoughts! We'd be there in person, but the free-marketeers pyramid scheme of servitude infestation (capitalism) has put blockades/ration-gates of capitalists-only PRICETAGS... on all the survival goods, and we Christian socialists are not allowed to have competer's AmWay coupons, because we don't compete. We only cooperate, so we can't join the competer's church. Its against our religion to compete. But, we HAVE resisted the "join capitalism or starve" felony extortion forcings that our parents and cap-society tried to pull on us when we turned 18 years old. We work HOURLY and DAILY... to get a cease and desist order on the felony called capitalism, which is caused by rat-racing for coupons and coins created via the cancerous tumors called economies. (and ownership-ism) (titling/en-titling)

God's love be with you all. Tell the story of the felony servitude-infested free-marketeers pyramid scheme... whose symbol is on the back of the USA one dollar bill. Do a Google IMAGE SEARCH for "pyramid of capitalist" and print that picture on every poster and banner. Remind the world that pyramid schemes... are EXACTLY like the farmyard pyramids we tried to erect as children. While the upper 1/3 of the pyramid scheme has their heads in the clouds, the kids on the bottom ALWAYS GET HURT from the weight of the world's knees in their backs. Inequality and servitude infestations like capitalism... are as illegal and immoral as it gets. Chicago mob-grade "pay up or lose your wellbeing" is felony extortion, but we have no Elliot Ness to help us bust this "billing" mob.

If the AmWay (American Way) buy-ins... can't see the The Great Pyramids out in the dessert, reminding us ALL that we WILL have a "tendency" to stack people into pyramids of empowerments and inequalities on this planet, then they are pretty blind, God love 'em. Try to rescue those people from the pyramid scheme just the same. Keep in mind that there is nobody to linch for the free-marketeers pyramid scheme, as all its inventors are long dead. We just need to escape it, now. Best of luck and safety... with the rally, gang. Our hearts and thoughts are with you!

So i've decided to come to the Bay Area for the anti-war actions and the anarchist bookfair. I've contacted many of the people i know when i used to live down in "The Bay". They're all either full, or inaccessible, either too far away, or up steps (i have a disability and use a walker). What's an activist to do? I'm sure i'm not the only person in these circumstances.
If anybody has any individual offers or suggersitons, or if you want to figure out the more general problem, please write me at deanosor [at] mailup.net
