NO JUSTICE NO BART - SECOND ACTION scheduled for ROCKRIDGE BART
by nojusticenobart
Wednesday Mar 18th, 2009 11:58 AM
TOMORROW: THURSDAY MARCH 19th.
Rockridge BART at 4 PM.

Action in solidarity with UFPJ BART demonstrations across the Bay Area!

No Justice No BART demands an end to occupations and police execution, from Oakland to Iraq!
On the anniversary of this war we need to remember that the war at home is part and parcel of the war
abroad. We need to get strategic as a movement, and a society, and realize that we have to wake up,
challenge, and rid ourselves of oprressive structures at home (e.g. the prison industrial complex,
the police state, economic and environmental racism)... and that those are the same structures that
support US imperialism abroad. Given that a lot of this shit exists in our own back yards, we should be
thinking locally and fighting locally, its the logical place for us to put our collective foot to the ass of
this war machine.

to "fix" gaza... it's for us to work in solidarity with palestinians by ending u.s. military aid to israel, raising awareness and changing the acceptance of israel's murderous ways. it sounds kind of patronizing to say tha the u.s. is going to "fix gaza." but tthe spirit of what you say that we have to deal with our own backyard is someting I agree with. we have to do both because both are important and we are responsible for our own backyard as well as where we are fucking up other peoples'. tristan anderson is just one example of the many activists comitted to both.

Until you recognize the occupation in gaza is the same occupation of Indigenous territories here, you continue not to get it.

so much easier to not acknowledge the occupation that you help to participate in?
