Can't Make It To Washington D.C. on Saturday? (english)
by Random and mysterious anti-authoritarian.
22 Oct 2003
Alternative to Saturday's mega-protests.
Can't Make It To Washington D.C. on
If you can't make it to Washington D.C. on Saturday,
you're not alone. Many of us wishing to go cannot attend due to
constraints such as work schedules, finances, familiar responsibilities, and so
on. However, that does not mean you cannot participate! While
concentrated dissent benefits the movement as a show of strength, it is not
necessarily the best means to inspire the general population to dissent.
Large protests such as those planned for D.C. and San Francisco rely upon
corporate media coverage to get their message out. Corporate media, by its
very nature, is not receptive to our message. Consequently, the message
will be watered down, obfuscated, or distorted, if it is presented at all.
There is an alternative! If you are unable to
attend the mega-marches this weekend, come to Harvard Square on Saturday,
October 25, between 12:00 Noon and 8:00 PM and join the DisOrganized resistance
for a day of local dissent against the Regime. Saturday is the three month
"anniversary" of our occupation of the square. We have
maintained a weekly presence since July 25.
The DisOrganized resistance is not an organization,
it is a movement. We have no leaders, meetings, or structure. Most
of us are anti-authoritarians. Most of us believe that the best way to
change our society is through direct contact with the people. We engage in
impromptu dissent. Nothing is too outrageous or too laid back. Come
as you wish, do what you wish, and most of all, express your disdain for the
See you there!
