Revolution Summer

Another American revolution is coming...

Revolution Summer San Diego is an attempt to promote the revolutionary spirit in San Diego, in order to also promote that spirit nationally and globally.

The revolution we wish to promote is simply the revolution of the many oppressed and suffering people over the few elite who are profiting on a grand scale from the current world order.

The organizers of Revolution Summer San Diego see the many activist struggles as the same struggle: a struggle against the order that is currently imposed on the world which places more importance on the wants of a few, at the expense of the lives and freedom of the many people and animals of the earth, and of the earth itself.

In an effort to strengthen and intensify the many activist struggles, Revolution Summer San Diego will consist of educational events, and related nonviolent protest actions, all summer long.

Throughout the summer months of 2003, thousands of people people are planned to gather in San Diego, CA to protest and take direct action against the many issues and facets of the system that maintain a world based on power, class, race, sex, and species. We invite everyone from all over the world to come to San Diego for the events of this summer, as well as for an international protest against the WTO meeting being held in Cancun, Mexico at the end of the summer. That international protest will be held on the Mexican border, just a few miles from San Diego.
