What You Won't See In Boston: Protest Police


They Are Coming To Build A Wall

When the Democratic National Convention comes to Boston in late July, they will build a massive wall in the streets of our city.

Officially referred to as the 'Hard Zone,' it will be yet another divide between those who hold power, and those who do not.

This wall will separate supposed rulers and supposed subjects.

From Berlin to Palestine to the Vietnam Memorial, we have all grown tired of their walls, their empty promises, and their wars.

Come resist the DNC. For a world without fences or wars...

Who is your enemy?

Who is Black Tea protesting at the DNC?
From a quick glance it looks like ANSWER.

If ANSWER wants a protest without smashed windows, why is that a threat to the peace movement? Isnt the so-called Democratic party a more powerful enemy of humanity?

Do not forget the wall on the Mexican border.

Peace, Terry

Actually at a quick glance, you will see that the Bl(A)ck Tea folks are the only people who have actually spent time preparing logisitics for this massive convergence. With just a quick glance you can clearly see who is doing all the grunt work. Why? Because they care about thier community.

And i can just guess who will be there to try and take all the credit and usurp our organizing efforts.
Fuck Protest Police

Right On Black Tea!!!
ANSWER is notorious for bossing around protesters, being a top down heirarchy, and basically using the model of the system to form their organization.

We don't need them!!! Despite what people may think.

When I was in Boston, I picked up a Spare Change, and read about the Black Tea. It seems to me, atleast the reporter seemed to state this, that this whole DNC protest is being organized by a small group, and not some top down organization like ANSWER.

Keep up the good work.

Oh, and to all the protest police out there, expect resistance! Quit telling us what to do!!!

This is awesome! I am getting so damn sick of going to rallies and having to deal with the cops in blue on one side of us and the cops in orange on the other! Right on!

So tell me, which branch of homeland security is this so-called "Black Tea Society" working for?

So tell me, how much money did WWP/ANSWER/IAC get from North Korea and the CIA this month?
