The Occupation of Harvard Square Continues (english)
05 Sep 2003
Modified: 06 Sep 2003
The sixth consecutive week of Harvard Square occupation begins this Saturday at 12:00 noon. Bush bashing, dissent, protest, street theater, literature, music, and revolution are all welcome.
Come one, come all to the weekly occupation of Harvard Square. Express your dissent as you see fit! This is a disorganized call for individuals and groups wishing to express their dissatisfaction with the fascist government.

If this week is like other weeks, all who come will have a good time ridiculing the idiot emperor. Free poster boards and markers will be available for those that wish to make their anti-Bush/anti-Government/anti-War protest signs on location (sorry, Bush supporters must pay a $1,000.00 donation for the same poster board given to anti-Bush protestors for free - capitalism sucks, doesn't it).

Also available for use will be fabric markers for writing your dissent on your shirts. If someone has body paint, please bring it along and paint your skin (or the skin of others) with messages of revolution.

Bumper stickers are usually available as are anti-Bush PsyOps stickers for plastering the world with messages against the idiot sleeping with president's wife.

The even usually runs between 12:00 noon and 8:00. When you show up, don't expect organization or some leader with a clipboard taking down names and telling you what to do. This is a disorganized protest for the bold and courageous. However, don't worry about the Bush fascists, we outnumber them. The people of Harvard Square are 90% behind us.

Bring a digital camera or digital video camera if you have one. Cop watching is in vogue.

Hasta la victoria, siempre!

Right on...for the most part. (english)

Hey, right on with the protest, sounds good to me. I'm just a bit turned off by the extensive hyperbole (fascist government, emperor). It just concerns me that we're resorting to using hyperbole to promote our ideas. That should be something left to the capital-controlled media. I mean, if it were truly a fascist government, I don't think we'd be allowed to gather in Harvard Square in the first place, and if we did, I don't think the reaction would be pretty.

Sorry, I'm trying not too sound hostile or anything, just a few suggestions. See you saturday.
right Veritas! (english)

Because most people in public are on our side anyway, we should tone it down a tad, emphasizing the thought provoking over the merely provocative. Just a thought. In any case, we want to attract participants, not just attention. Fight on, everyone!
