actions & protests

Sept 11 convergence, Eugene OR

Lets get a ton of people down to Eugene for September 11
Eugene activists are planning a week (or so) of workshops culminating in a mass demonstration against state terrorism, the Bush regime, capitalism and all the other stuff that sucks (organizers are trying to make the focus as multi-issue as possible to attract a broad spectrum of people) on September 11. The current flyer is downloadable at  http://portland.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=17003&group=webcast
Lets cover Portland (and Salem, and Albany, and Corvalis, and Astoria, and Ashland, etc, etc) in flyers. Lets use indymedia to coordinate which parts of town are getting covered like we did with the Bush protest.

Please start forming affinity groups now. Autonomous action is encouraged. Come prepared.

and remember: The images and ideologies currently associated with Sept 11 have been dictated to us by the ruling class. Instead of letting that fact scare us away from dissenting on that day, lets transcend our fear, and be more bold than ever before. Let's be really creative about what kind of images and ideas we what want to share with people and reclaim September 11!!!!

More info soon.

Let's turn out for this one, Portland. As far as I've heard, there is no major organized resistance in our own city (besides some lame attempt to fit in with the corporate "commemoration" downtown.) Hey, Eugene, keep the info coming.

what's wrong with showing up at their little corporate melodrama on 9-11? the real voice that has not been and truly needs to be heard is that 9-11 was a sham from the beginning. it's called Problem-Action-Solution, i.e. those in power come up with some new world raping idea and want a way to get "their" folks behind it. So, they create a problem, such as, making big buildings fall. Then they get all their people behind some Action, an action that we simply MUST TAKE! and the solution, well, they already new that one from the start, and it is of course....

WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT.

new world order
religion for all
pollute more for less
etc.

i say, show up at their stupid rally, and let them know how you feel about the events of september 11th and all that have followed. the longer we are complacent to their brainwashed "grieving" the longer these and other lies will persist and grow.

or just go out in your own neighborhood, make a cool sign and march around. eggs don't hurt that much
