Fuck July 4th Mission District Protest!!

by fuck the 4th of july
Looking to express your outrage, burn some amerikan flags, and participate in a diverse and serious opposition? Come to the Mission.
Don't celebrate Genocide, Slavery, and Brutality! The United Front calls all to make some noise to protest on the forth of July! We call all people of good will to stand with the people of the world on this forth of July in San Francisco at 24th and Mission st at 11 am, where the march will begin. We will peacefully, non-violently but militantly march, demonstrate, speak out, possibly burn flags, do street theater, leaflet, build our collective family of movement, and much more.

Why the forth of July? To quote Frederick Douglass:
"What to the American slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody, than our the people of these United States, at this very hour." (December 8, 1850)

What is the united front? It is newly emerging coalition of people including representatives from AIM (the American Indian Movement), The People's Resistance, Students for Justice,and others, who recognize that we must build mass movement in this country to end the terrorism being perpetrated here in the USA and around the globe!

Since September 11, the US government, who is the greatest terrorist in the world today, has been trying to convince us all that they are the victims. Objective reality tells a much different story. We know this will most likely be the biggest celebration since the bi-centennial. They are working overtime to rally as much patriotic spirit they can in hopes that we will forget the genocide and horrific crimes against humanity they have perpetrated and continue to lead. The forth of July in America is the greatest hypocrasy holiday in the world. The America ruling classes have bombed, killed, hung, incarcerated, enslaved, colonized and perpetrated more campaigns of genocide against the people of the world more than anyone. Here are some of the innumerable examples of their crimes, always framed in the name of freedom and justice.

Hundreds of millions of native Indian's killed in five hundred years! The greatest land theft in all of history. The extermination of the majority of our ancestors who are the original inhabitants of this land. The forcing of survivors onto and into reservations, concentration camps Nazi-style.

400 plus years of African enslavement, lynchings, institutional racism, mass incarceration and forced oppression! It is the stealing of African and Indian babies, raping of our womyn, and the terrorization for people!

America is responsible for stealing half of Mexican lands and the killing of hundreds of millions of la raza!

They have mass-murdered Haitians, Cubans, Guatamalens, Puerto Ricans, Chileans, Peruvians, Columbian s, Indian's, Africans, Arabs, Asians, aboriginals, Europeans, and species.

They have created all kinds of fascist movements all over Latin America complete with death squads, mass rape, mass disappearances, and mass graves. They have colonized the whole of Latin America and forced imperialist chains on the hundreds of millions of la raza.

They have dropped the atomic bomb twice on Japan and her people killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese! They have murdered hundreds of millions of Asian people in the last 500 years!

The American imperialists have conquered many populations of Asians, like south Korea, south Vietnam, the Philipeans, Taiwan, killing and raping millions!

The rulers of America are presently at war with the Arabs, Palestinians and the majority of the muslim world. They have rounded up 1400 people of Arab decent who were living in the US and disappeared them! They have murdered millions of Arabs and still are killing the people in mass.

America means the rape, exploitation, conquest, and institutionalized gender oppression of women!

America is today the greatest terrorist, the greatest killer, the greatest enslaver, the greatest evil in the whole history of the worlds peoples!

This is why we must take a stand on the forth of July and show the people of the US and the world that the spirit of the Movement is alive and growing and raising it's brilliant head all over the world!

Please join us to demonstrate on this day of hypocrisy and take and further the movement of resistance!!!!!!!

Fuck the 4th of July!

The United Front
