DNC2RNC call to action - a call to be ourselves

Enough is Enough! March for Direct Democracy! Todo para Todos!

What: DNC2RNC Arrival March from Columbus Circle to Union Square
Where: Columbus Circle
When: 5pm, Thursday, August 26th

Rather than representing the interests of the people, both Democrats and Republicans choose to build systems of violent exploitation. We have walked 258 miles from the Democratic National Convention and now we arrive at the Republican National Convention to say "Ya Basta!" Enough is Enough! As a symbol of reclamation of our city space, and as a gesture of solidarity with those silenced and oppressed, we will march for those who cannot be present, we will give a voice to the voiceless, a face to the faceless, and struggle to build direct democracy. In the spirit of Zapatismo we seek dignity, justice, housing, autonomy, education, health care, work and food for all.

We invite all people of varying risk levels to join us on Thursday, August 26, as the march reaches its final destination.

Permits have not been requested or granted because we do not need permission to unite as civil society. We will not take power, but exercise it to build democracy. After a brief gathering with food at Columbus circle the march will proceed down Broadway past Madison Square Garden, concluding at Union Square. The march will be escorted by a bike bloc organized by Times Up! bicyclists and accompanied by an inspiring and creative street theater piece performed by DNC2RNC marchers and allied affinity groups. In order to clearly present our message and to minimize harm to participants, we will act in the spirit of non-violence. We will attempt to de-escalate violence and, if we need to defend ourselves, we will do so non-violently.

The culmination of our march will be celebrated with rhythm, voices, and imagination. Please show your support by bringing friends and family to our arrival.

Throughout our month long march we have participated in a broad range of community events. As a characteristic finish to our march we will support South Bronx residents who are fighting to keep their community gardens from being bulldozed to make way for unaffordable housing. We will then march from Cortland Ave. and 159 St. in the South Bronx to Columbus Circle for the Arrival March.
