A Call for a Revolutionary Anti-Authoritarian Bloc Against the War and Capitalism

anarcho | On September 24th, Anarchist Action, an autonomous network of groups and
individuals, has called for a Revolutionary Anti-Capitalist Convergence
Against the War in San Francisco. Over the summer, Anarchist Action has held
several successful (sub)urban insurrections, militant street parties, and
marches in and around the Bay Area. We are inspired by our comrades from the
West coast, and as they converge on the streets in San Francisco, we too
will take to the streets of Washington DC!

We are calling for a Revolutionary Anti-Authoritarian Bloc Against the War
and Capitalism. Meet on September 24th and bring flags, sturdy banners,
clothes to blend in at the march, and other defensive items you might need
to oppose the war and the system behind it!

THE WORLD CAN'T WAIT to Drive Out the Bush Regime! Volunteer Now.

Wat Stearns, WCW T-shirt Coordinator | The World Can't Wait (www.worldcantwait.org) believes there are at least 100 million people in the U.S. who are disgusted and angry enough about the Bush regime to take some action to get rid of them and their toxic politics. Help us provide the channel for 100 million voices, wallets and feet to accomplish this goal of driving out the Bush regime. We're not waiting for the Democracts, Congress, Election '06 or anything else. We are a resistance organization, not a protest organization, and we will achieve our aim through work stoppages and other tactics. more...  6 Comments
