Call to Arms
**A Call To Arms**Not the only way to Feel**But for those who have
become sick and tired of comlacency, pacifism, and inactivity
in your name, thousands of civilians are murdered annually, if not by our government, by our allies with our financial backing. We play a part in this, however small. We live unwillingly in this faux democracy. And no matter how radical our principles, through inactivity we become complicit in these atrocities. We can not allow this fucked up cycle to continue unabated. Tens of thousands take the streets in europe to protest the practices of our illegitimate government. We don't have those numbers... so it's up to us.
1.) the next couple of months are not going to pass us by in a drunken stupor; the summer time is electric. It's the season where the greatest influx of 'kids' come to portland, you know, lots of people with plenty of time on their hands. You and two, three, or twenty of your friends can come up with something to fill up some empty afternoon or evening and make this town more exciting for everyone. We have come to the realization, however late, that no one is going to create an active threat to the power structures in this system. There will not be a single, pivotal event that brings the injustice, killing and ecocide to a screeching halt. Its up to us, as individuals, as autonomous cells, groups of friends etc... this summer is going to be off the hook, and its up to us, its up to YOU.
2.) There are multitudes of fun projects that people have taken part in in the past, with varying degrees of illegality. here are a few ideas, but don't feel limited to what we suggest, start small, plan ahead, and if all goes well you'll never see the inside of a jail cell.
[FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. WE WOULDN'T WANT ANYBODY ACTUALLY GOING OUT AND DOING ANYTHING... WOULD WE?]
a.] does it frustrate you that one can only display art publicly if one has the resources to rent 'advertising space' on a billboard? Make art a threat again. Alter any billboard sponsored by multi-nationals or corrupt gov't organizations [all of them]
b.] drop banners from every smog-choked overpass in this carsick town, say something intelligent, say something stupid, fuck with their heads.
c.] show a sign of defiance to the growing military industrial complex, redesign the offices and windows of all the recruitment centers in your area of town.
d.] any property destruction, slash tires, break windows, spray paint anything and everything, start fires, stop traffic, whatever you can think of, its definitely needed
3.] we have caught some disease, actually we have diagnosed it, and the cure is in each one of our hearts, it courses through our veins every morning, it burns our lungs when we breathe, it makes us think we are powerless sometimes, but right now it feels like
we are not going to become quickly complacent, or become frustrated with past failures, this is our city, our world, and the time for us to show some resistance, in any and all ways, is now, today, tomorrow, and every moment until we die, or the state ends our lives prematurely
**frustrated, fed up, and fuckin' ready to start some shit**
