Announcement :: Peace & War : Resistance & Tactics

ORANGE FRIDAY: 24 Hours to Resist the Occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan

ORANGE FRIDAY is a day of learning, a day of reflection, a day of resistance. For twenty-four hours we skip class, we skip work, we leave our cars at home, we buy nothing, we fast. For one day we set our lives aside to examine and understand this occupation; professors hand over their podiums to discussion about peace and justice; teach-ins spring up across our communities; businesses close their doors; our cities shut down.
*Post Far and Wide*
National Day of Action to End the Occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and the “War on Terror?

Friday, September 30
ORANGE FRIDAY
Call for Actions in Communities Across the Country

Twenty-four hours to learn, to mourn, to organize, to resist

ORANGE FRIDAY is a day of learning, a day of reflection, a day of resistance. For twenty-four hours we skip class, we skip work, we leave our cars at home, we buy nothing, we fast. For one day we set our lives aside to examine and understand this occupation; professors hand over their podiums to discussion about peace and justice; teach-ins spring up across our communities; businesses close their doors; our cities shut down.


Why ORANGE?
The media and the government are pretending that there is no war. Every day we wake up without thinking about the occupation is a day we ignore hundreds of deaths, thousands of captives, and millions of lives turned upside down. To date, no unifying symbol calling for the end to this occupation has been cultivated. ORANGE is what our peace movement needs to be: bright, bold, and impossible to ignore.

Orange is the color of the racist zionist colonist movement in gaza and the franchised "revolution" in the ukraine. What is with the color coded, theam and costume protest? are you trying to send the wrong message? i cant believe that cornell college eliets could be this niave.
