June 25: March Against War, Empire, & Capitalism in Downtown Palo Alto

Destroy the War Machine!

Meet 7pm . Saturday . June 25
Lytton Plaza in downtown Palo Alto
University Ave. at Emerson
2 Blocks from Palo Alto Caltrain

Fight Bush

There's a war on - a war between the United States government and the vast majority of the world's population. This war has many faces - the struggles over globalization, corporate empire, and the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan - but everywhere the same lines are drawn. Everywhere the US government is acting in the interests of corporations, and everywhere people are being slaughtered, are starving to death, and are watching their lives be torn apart and sold for profit.


Stop the War

This war has to stop. The occupation must end, neoliberalism must be buried, and any attempt to invade Iran must be prevented. The prediction that the US may not have the military or political capacity to wage another war must be fulfilled. Already well over five thousand soldiers have deserted and recruitment is falling far short of the military's goals. It's up to us to ensure that the US government does not maintain a political or social capacity to continue its war on the world's population.




Destroy Empire

What does this mean? This means we need to step up our resistance - and we need to do it now! The US can only continue its devastating economic pursuits if it can rely on our complacency and the safety of the corporations which it serves. If we act together to take back control out our own lives, environments, and relations, present a serious challenge to government power, and inflict serious economic damage upon the corporations responsible for this war, they won't be able to invade Iran or even continue the occupation of Iraq - and they'll be in a lot more trouble than that!




Dismantle Capitalism

It is not enough to oppose one piece of this horrible puzzle - what we win one place will be taken away somewhere else. From war to globalization, occupation, and all other attacks on working and poor people around the world, to their architect, the G8 - it is the system itself which must be destroyed. As hundreds of thousands converge on Scotland to prevent the leaders of the world's 8 wealthiest countries from meeting to plan their next attack, we must mobilize here to resist it. Converge on downtown Palo Alto this June 25th - destroy their nightmare, make your dreams possible!

P.A. police gear for protest

HORSES, HELICOPTERS WILL HELP MONITOR ANARCHISTS' MARCH

By Dan Stober and Anna Tong

The anarchists are coming! And Palo Alto police, who haven't seen a major protest since the Vietnam War 30 years ago, are calling in horses and helicopters to deal with what the police chief says could be a violent protest by 800 anarchists marching past downtown restaurants on University Avenue on Saturday night.

But the young self-described anarchists who dress in black and hang around downtown's Lytton Plaza held a press conference to say that they won't be the first to disturb the peace.

Re: June 25: March Against War, Empire, & Capitalism in Downtown Palo Alto

hi palo alto friends, keep strategies on your mind. if there's a throng of well-equipped cops. embarass them in front of the media by showing there's no reason for them to be there.

this type of police repression of marches is unconstitutional and needs to be displayed as such. confrontation has it's place, but consider strategies to effectively use the corporate media to get your points across.
 

Re: June 25: March Against War, Empire, & Capitalism in Downtown Palo Alto

Tonight will be just another example of the systems violence. Whether they use their weapons or not, Palo Alto will be a police state.

Be careful, think tactically.
 

newswire

Hey, there is a phoned in Newswire report at www.indybay.org sC.indy will probably catch up tomorrow. Apparently the excessive police declared the assembly unlawful within about half an hour and is arresting people. 10 people were sitting in the street in the style of the last 'breakaway march' that sort of fizzled out in San Francisco

So, how did this march help "destroy the nightmare" and "make our dreams possible"? Does a *symbolic* act of resistance actually "present a *serious* challenge to government power," or is it just the perpetuation of a rigid, ideological ritual? Political protest may rock the boat a little bit, but I don't feel that it will ever sink the boat (i.e. "destroy empire" or "dismantle capitalism").

Careful there, at some point the silent majority may not tolerate such shenanigans...
