imperialism & war

Tired of marching in circles? Join the anti-war network

An invitation to people who are tired of wars to get involved in building a more effective alternative to meaningless marches around the White House.
Are you tired of marching around in circles at symbolic protests in Washington, DC? Are you tired of boring rallies and activism that never involves civil disobedience or direct action? Are you tired of fake coalitions run by the Democratic Party or some obscure Marxist-Leninist party? Are you wondering why there weren't any national anti-war protests last year? Do you want to put an end to imperialism, the war machine, capitalism, and the right wing religious extremists running this country.

It's time to start building a better alternative. Join the Anti-Authoritarians Against the War Network which consists of hard-working grassroots people who are fighting against the war in your community or a city or town near you. We operate an egalitarian, cooperative network where the agenda is set by people like you. We want to end the U.S. occupation of Iraq and stop any future wars from happening. The War Against Iraq and other imperialist wars can only be stopped by a network of committed people working together, not by the same old rallies in Washington parks.

.

You don't just have to stop marching in circles. like carnival targets.

You have to talk to your neighbours, and become targets for real guns.

You become a real target when you become a real dissident.

Be all you can be. Join the anarchists.

Those anarchists sure do exhort each other to talk to somebody's neighbors quite a bit.

But they've never talked to me!

Maybe they live in some other neighborhood.

Or maybe it's all bullshit and they only talk to each other.

Anarcho, your idea seems to be good, but you do not need to 'put down' the mass protestation in order to promote it. There are a lot of diverse things need to happen to change the American Society and under the great umbrella of mass movement a lot of different initiative can co-exist, including the one you promote.
