Revolutionary community statement on the August 21st Bush demonstrations.
Portland Anti Capitalist Action, Queer Revolution and the Portland General Organizing Group of the Federation of Northwest Anarchist Communists (FNAC) endorses, supports and calls on everyone to attend the demonstrations coming up the 21st of this month to protest George W. Bush. We feel that this demonstration is crucial towards illustrating the resistance to his regime, but also to draw attention to the bigger picture of what the system Bush is upholding is all about.
Portland's anti-authoritarian revolutionary community calls for a highly visual and organized presence at the upcoming visit. We call on other revolutionaries to march together in a solid presence. We ask other groups to arrive with a strong visual attendance, flags, banners, drums and most importantly, literature and an enthusiasm to engage the rest of Portland's left community in revolutionary discussion surrounding issues of capitalism, hierarchies and oppression. We aim to legitimize anti-authoritarian revolutionary thought and resistance, not only against the Bush regime but also against the tyranny of the entire american social, political and economic structure. We understand the problem does not lie solely with the current administration but with a society based on white supremacy, classism, patriarchy, heterosexism, ableism, ageism and capitalism.
Portland Anti Capitalist Action, Queer Revolution and the Portland General Organizing Group of FNAC support Diversity Of Tactics. Diversity Of Tactics is simply respecting the rights of all others to act autonomously and express their love and their rage as they see fit. No one should hold another's passions back. No one should police the power of the people in the streets. Additionally, no one should compromise the safety of unarrestables. Coming together in the streets is as much about solidarity and communication and respect for one another as it is about illustrating our ideas and protesting against this (and all) oppressive institutions and regimes.
Calls are being made from all walks of life to protest this man and what he stands for. We support and respect all on them on their own accords.
Towards disrupting business as usual, illustrating the strength of our movement, and showing the world how it's done.
Love and Revolution
