They Are Lying To You.. Challenging The Media Slander
09 Jun 2004
Despite what the media tells us, anarchy isn't violence or chaos. Anarchists are committed to creating a world where everyone is free and equal -- not just those who have money or political power. Anarchism is a vision of a society based on cooperation, independence, and equality.

Despite what the media tells us, anarchy isn't violence or chaos. Anarchists are committed to creating a world where everyone is free and equal -- not just those who have money or political power. Anarchism is a vision of a society based on cooperation, independence, and equality.

Unfortunately, the media and the police would like to use scare tactics to pit the community and local anarchists against each other. Anarchists have been organizing to protest the Democratic National Convention, and others will come to Boston to participate in protests. But a campaign of lies and fearmongering has already come to town. The Boston Herald and Fox 25 News have ran stories filled with lies about anarchists that were intended to scare the public. The main motivation for discrediting and attacking anarchists is to provide justification and cover for massive police and state brutality against protesters and community members.

The truth is, most of the time you'll find anarchists outside of protests. You can find us in community groups fighting for rent control, giving away free food in Central Square and on the Boston Common, reclaiming space for community gardens, supporting local labor struggles, and working toward equality for all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or abilities. We will hold a free festival on the Boston Common on Tuesday, July 27th (12pm to 8pm) to celebrate our resistance and seek alternatives. Don't believe the media slander, come see for yourself!

Who, in their right mind, would believe FOX News? Or for that matter, the Boston Herald? (Brain washed right wingers and sports nuts.)
Two right wing, neo con, propaganda media outlets.
The BEST information is on-line by independent web sites.
How many right wingers read Boston Indymedia? (NSA, FBI and police.) Not many.
I'd blog the information on a Republican web site.
They wouldn't buy it anyway. (Like a horse with blinders on!)
Too bad you can't hold that meeting on a weekend. I'd show up.
Good luck with the recruiting!

this 1/4 sheet is going to be distributed in major transit points leading up to the dnc. park st-north station-downtown crossing etc..

so we aren't relying on the internet to get it to mainstream folks, but mostly to let activist type know it is there. And they can download it and distro it themselves as well!!! Hint hint.
