Calll for RNC Solidarity Actions in Boston on Wednesday
01 Sep 2004
Call for solidarity actions to support RNC protests. Let's show our support for those on the streets and in the jails of New York.
I don't know what people should do or where they should go. Let's here some proposals.

I'm making leaflets promoting NYC Indymedia so people can access the truth.

Pirates Against Bush is putting out a call for direct action (particularly in Boston) in solidarity with those protesting the RNC. We suggest sit-ins, banner drops, protests, posters, leaflets, or anything else you come up with.

i dont think anyone would notice if it is at the Fox station since it is near the highway, unless Fox brings out their own cameras to film. i think the pirates against bush idea is pretty good. there are lots of rooftops and balconies in boston with public access for a banner drop

There were a few thousand leaflets describing the conditions at "Guantanamo on the Hudson" distributed on the red line today. Somebody threw a couple hundred from the balcony in Quincy Market down onto the crowded area where everybody eats. Many people were reading them.

and the leaflets directed people to Nyc Indymedia so they could find more info.
MA Republican HQ
02 Sep 2004
the republican HQ is on 85 Merrimac street. I checked it out personally because i thought it might just be a mailing address.

Here's what i found.

There is an electronic intercom system for all the tenants in the building. The intercom is accessable from the sidewalk.

The intercom has a phone keypad. There are instructions on how to use the system.

Pressing the 3 key scrolls through the tenants of the building. Press the 3 key 11 times and you see the "Republican Party" on the screen.

Press # key to call them. When they answer, tell them to fuck off...or whatever else is on your mind. Whistles or airhorns would be a nice touch as well.

This could provide hours of entertainment.

Great job to those who dropped the leaflets! For an action, a firm suggestion of a location would probably be more useful than a call with no specifics. Yes, the police will know about it, but so will your comrades! The most the police will likely do is stand around and maybe bug you a bit.

It sounds like most people are out, but not all, including at least one with Boston ties. And then come trials. So there's still much work to do!

No need to announce your actions unless you plan on getting arrested.
