John Ashcroft is not welcome in Boston. (english)
23 Aug 2003
Modified: 24 Aug 2003
The Resistance declares John Ashcroft Unwelcome.
John Ashcroft, usurper of Constitutional rights is declared persona non grata by all Bostonians loyal to the tradition of liberty established in this Commonwealth by New Englanders that gave their lives more than 225 years ago in the struggle against tyranny. We urge all patriotic Bostonians to exercise whatever powers available to them, within the bound of the law, to refuse to cooperate, facilitate or permit passage of John Ashcroft to or through the area around and within Boston. We urge all transportation workers to refuse cooperation with any requests by authorities to alter the normal transportation patterns of the city and its surroundings for the purpose of facilitating passage for John Ashcroft upon public roads or transit ways. We request all hotel workers to refuse lodging or assistance in any way for the visit of John Ashcroft. We request each and every patriot within the Boston area to exercize their right to refuse to cooperate with any request as service or assistance to John Ashcroft made by any authorities or employers.

This is a call for legal non-violent non-cooperation only.

The date of John Ashcroft's visit has been kept secret. We expect an announcement soon as to the date of his unwelcome visit. We request all patriots to wear only black on the day of his visit as a sign of mourning for the US Constitution.

Ashcroft (english)
24 Aug 2003
Thanks for posting....I've been thinking about Ayatollah Ashcroft's tour schedule, and wondered if he'd come to New England. Any idea WHERE in Boston he's going to speak? Or if plans for a rally are already in the works? I'm down in New Bedford,MA, but plan to go up there if something's scheduled. I'll keep checking back.

"Stand your ground...let it begin here."

Once again Americans are being terrorized by their own government. Let's show General Ashcroft that we don't buy this government's excuses. What better way to register our disapproval (in an assertive but non-violent way) than to "greet" him with hundreds of Bay Staters prepared to speak Truth to Power?
