In a power grab as transparent as Bush Inc.'s illegal oil war in Afghanistan, the Eugene Anarchists are seizing control of the proposed Eugene Indymedia web site. Using a congressional filibuster style tactic, progress towards getting the site up and running has been stalled for over four weeks as the anarchists browbeat, insult, accuse, alienate, name call and call out anyone who does not subscribe to their particular form of revolution.
Pity the few non-anarchist activists with thick enough skin to be left on the committee, for they must endure hours of j'accuse while frustrated by a complete lack of forward motion. Pity also the few non-anarchist activists who have been dragged down to the level of adolescent bickering that characterizes these meetings. Perhaps the participants in this tantrumic methodology are infiltrators, because they are most effectively preventing the Eugene Indymedia site from going public.
By engaging in this coup, the anarchists have revealed that they prioritize their own personal power and aggrandizement above the overthrow of the capitalist system and the removal dictator Bush and his corporate cronies, because as they sit squabble, the army bombs and rapes Afghanistan, opportunists level the forest and violate the earth, and business rapes and exploits an ignorant american public, as yet unenlightened by the accurate news that a Eugene Indymedia site may some day publish.
