Announcement :: DNC
Please Send Money!

We are accepting money in order to get ourselves, in a van, to Boston so that we may cooperate with Black Tea Society, participate in the Boston to NYC radical peace march, and be at the RNC Robospectacle in NYC.
Warm spiritual greetings, I am asking for money donations so that my friends and I can drive to Boston in a van, and be on the east coast into September. We wish to cooperate with the Black Tea Society in opposing the stupidity of global corporatization at the DNC, and then do as much as we can to make the radical peace march from Boston to NYC a success, and then be in NYC in solidarity with radical environmental and peace and justice participants, in opposition to the increasingly insane Robo agenda of materialism.

At present, I am sleeping in bed # 20 of Berkeley, California's Veteran's Hall shelter. This is after 30 years of unpaid radical environmental and peace and justice organizing, and frontline activism. I pushed my spiritual life to such a successful extent, that the Berkeley Police Dept. told me that they recognize that I have a "legitimate spiritual life", and that I am "not welcome in the Berkeley jail".

I am telling you that I am unable to raise any money in hyperconsumerist California, in spite of putting out a request on every California IMC, plus my own west coast emailing. Do you want to know why there has been no response? The reason is NOT because the seventh largest economy in the world is too poor to make a modest contribution. (There is a huge amount of disposable income hereabout). The reason that I'm not receiving anything, is because Californians in general do not value me and my friends going to the east coast and intervening in this weird, extreme materialistic, national journey to nowhere's history. That's why I'm living in a shelter, and have four cents plus two NYC subway tokens as my total financial resources at the moment, and am posting this message on the Boston IMC.

If you agree that this takes the award for the most idiotic social situation of the week in America, I want you to wire me some money. I will use it to get the heck out of Berkeley, and get myself and my friends on the road to the east coast, where we look forward to working with other spiritually sane individuals soon. Love, Craig Stehr, craigstehr (at) resist.ca
