NYC: Mouse Bloc takes Broadway on August 29!!
by Mouse bloc
Tuesday Jul 27th, 2004 2:19 PM
As the Republican elephant tramples into our city,
thousands of mischievous mice will confront them in
the streets! On August 29 at 5PM, over 13,000
Republican fatcat delegates will be attending eight
Disneyfied Broadway shows in Midtown Manhattan.

Every good little mouse in NYC knows the Republicans
are only here to steal our cheese.
Mouse Bloc takes Broadway on August 29!!

"If one mouse can scare an elephant,
what can thousands do?"

As the Republican elephant tramples into our city,
thousands of mischievous mice will confront them in
the streets! On August 29 at 5PM, over 13,000
Republican fatcat delegates will be attending eight
Disneyfied Broadway shows in Midtown Manhattan.

Every good little mouse in NYC knows the Republicans
are only here to steal our cheese. This is our city!
These are our theaters! Thousands of mice will swarm
the streets to remind the forgetful old elephants that
they are not welcome in this town. They will not be
able to have fun at our expense without facing
thousands of pissed off mice in the streets.

The idea is simple: show up at 4:00 at one of eight
theater locations and be ready to topple the elephant
to the ground. Mice love nothing more than theater in
the street, loud drums, music of all kinds, radical
cheerleaders, marching bands, anti-capitalist
preachers, dumpster divers, bike blockers, pissed off
workers, disrupters, rowdies, "out of town"
troublemakers", roving affinity groups, pink bloques,
kissing queers, clowns, pirates, khaki-clad yuppies,
radical gardeners, puppetistas, pagans, samba bands,
chicks with dicks, revel-utionaries, fire-eaters,
throwers & spitters, drag kings and queens,
billionaires, punks-be they crusty or clean!,
zapatistas, autonomistas and of course, your friendly
local ANARCHISTS! They claim the people of NYC are a
'threat to the city'-we say the Republicans and their
agenda are the real threat.

Do bring-->friends, family, affinity groups, bikes,
costumes, mouse ears, tails and whiskers. cheese (soy
or otherwise), anything you need for a good action.

Don't bring-->Padded blocs-cuz its the NYPD and this
ain't Italy! Black Blocs-->cuz this ain’t Seattle and
its 2004! This is a tactical opinion only.

Come join us on the 29th for some action outside of
the NYPD-approved 'frozen zone'. Solidarity to the
August 31 actions! Updates will be posted to the NYC
Independent Media Center site at
