call to action for all over the northwest.
Call for Another Massive Convergence at Port of Tacoma on Monday Night (3/12/07)

Hello everybody,

We need people from all over cascadia (northwest)! we appreciate people coming from around the northwest for friday. we need people again! now is the time to act against the military machine and police violence.

As you may or may not know, the boat is in and the Strykers are being loaded onto it. We had one intense night in Friday but after Friday things fell apart. There was no plan, no definite meeting spot and no communicaton between different affinity groups. But on Friday the one thing we did was pick one solid location.

Being that we cannot get close to where the Strykers are, there is no point in doing anything symbolic that the longshoreman who are driving the military vehicles would see.

We will meet at the corner of Lincoln and Milawakee, the intersection where everyone got gassed. Let's show these rutheless, bloodthirsty pigs that we are not afraid of going back to where the confrontation happened and that we will not stop. The boat will be gone soon and if we do nothing, especially after what they did to us, we will all regret it later. Bring all of your friends, tell them to bring all of their friends, and be there at the corner of Lincoln and Milawakee at 9pm. From there, after or before, we will figure out what to do on Tuesday, but let's just worry about being there tomorrow.

Please spread this widely.

Meetup: Corner of Lincoln and Milawakee @ 9pm.

Take 136B exit off of I-5
Follow Port of Tacoma Road towards Port.
Take a left on Lincoln.
Follow Lincoln until you hit Milawakee.
At intersection, take a left.
Parking will be to your right immediately after taking that left. Consider parking a little farther down milwaukee, away from barricades.

Once there, wait for enough people.

And then the magic will start...

Come prepared, and bring whatever you feel necessary for protection and action. Medics are appreciated. If you need a place to stay overnight, ask for tacoma folks and we can help you out.
