EUGENE ANARCHISTS ENDORSE JIM TORREY

EUGENE ANARCHISTS ENDORSE JIM TORREY


We, Anarchists residing in the Eugene/Springfield area are endorsing Jim Torrey for Mayor of Eugene in the 2008 election. We hold that a Torrey regime would be sufficiently brutal and unresponsive to drive hordes of otherwise apathetic citizens to our cause. To this end we have resurected Eugene Anarchists for Torrey (EAT).

Anarchists seek to replace the vertically organized, representative structures that dominate our society with horizontal, directly democratic ones. To achieve this requires a massive, popular rejection of the existing political and economic system. We hope that the election of Torrey will strip away the kind liberal veneer of the city government and re-energize the anarchist movement in Eugene. EAT member George Hayduke says, "The best political leaders are the ones who are lazy and corrupt."

Though we will not actually be voting, anarchists have been long standing supporters of Torrey endorsing him in the 2000 mayoral race. Historical documentation of our support is available here: http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=18Nh0fdbZ5o.
We wish him the best of luck in 2008.
