Will you join us in a resolution for the coming year to do everything we can to end the war for empire and uproot the system behind it? On January 10, 11am-5pm at St Boniface Church DASW is hosting an assembly to take stock of the past year’s actions, get reacquainted with one another, strengthen our network and sculpt plans of action for 2004. Come and share your vision and ideas with other bay area activists. In 2003 DASW brought together many of us, our organizations and affinity groups in the strongest creative direct action resistance against the invasion of Iraq within the US. When the US invaded, 20,000 of us shutdown the San Francisco Financial District. As the invasion continued and became an occupation, DASW coordinated actions linking corporate power and profit, the Bush Administration’s empire building policies, and the “war at home” impact on our local communities. Bechtel, ChevronTexaco, SSA, APL, Autonomy Corporation, Carlyle Group, and the Pacific Stock Exchange were among our targets. During these actions we established continuing relationships with community groups like PUEBLO (People United for a Better Oakland), ILWU local 10, Communities for a Better Environment, West County Toxics, and the Richmond Greens. We have also networked with groups nationally and internationally against the WTO and FTAA at the recent protests in Cancun and Miami. We believe that DASW has a key role to play in 2004, and we need you to join us. Let’s think proactively and consider longer term plans that break out of the action-to-action cycle. Gather up your friends and affinity groups and start thinking about ideas and proposals to share at the Assembly. Together we can strengthen our networks, organizations and create a remarkable resistance. Please join us in challenging empire http://www.actagainstwar.org/article.php?id=346
