Alternative Remembrances of September 11 in NYC and Elsewhere

Global Indymedia | (from Global Indymedia)The dictum "Remember 9/11" has been emblazoned across t-shirts, signs and bumperstickers across the U.S, ever since the horrific day in which four airplanes were hijacked and thousands of U.S. civilians were killed. While September 11 may be nearly impossible to forget, the right-wing in the U.S. has seemingly dominated the significance of that memory, equating it with the imperative to invade and occupy other countries, and to maim, torture and kill civilians abroad.

On September 11, 2004, actions will be held in various cities in the U.S., resisting the notion that the memory of September 11 legitimizes State-led and corporate-sponsored terror.

"Alternative remembrances" and a Day of Resistance will be held throughout the U.S. this Saturday, with actions taking place in Austin, Buffalo, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle and elsewhere.

Sybil Liberties | I can't think of more PROOF of the emerging corporate police state & media. The blimp is the perfect symbol of this. Your gov't is spying on you. Companies are spying on you. Your credit card and shopping card are spying on you.
