Southern NE: A Call for a Weekend of Dissent!
15 Mar 2005
Providence and Boston Anti-War Weekend!
A Call for a Weekend of Dissent!
Protest two years of this bloody mess!

Two years of this bloody mess and look where we are: Occupying a country that is self-destructing in order to rid itself of our infection. Eyeing Iran, Syria, and anyone else who isn’t “with” us. Claiming we’re spreading democracy when in fact we’re trying to spread free-market capitalism (we seem to think the two are inseparable). A ballooning Defense and Security budget that leaves our Schools, Health Care, Libraries, Public Transportation, and other social services gutted. And wealthy elites who are gaining more power and money while the rest of us at best have no control over our lives and at worst have no food, clothes or shelter.

These issues are all interconnected with the WAR on IRAQ and this weekend we will take to the streets to express our desire for fundamental radical change in the United States. We’re calling on all anarchists, anti-authoritarians, anti-capitalists, poets, lovers, radicals, artists, drunks, homeless, punks, students, hippies, activists, trouble makers and lovers of freedom of all ages to join us!

***FRIDAY 3/18***
Critical Mass - Meet at Pineapple Park on Friday at 4:30. The ride will begin at 5pm.

***SATURDAY 3/19***
Meet downtown at Waterplace Park Stage at Noon. There will be Street Theatre and other creative actions. Bring drums, pots and pans, buckets, instruments, music, voices, banners, creativity, spontaneity, and your spirit of revolt!

From there a march will leave to converge with the Community Coalition of Peace March [CCP -] which begins at 1pm at Memorial Park.

2pm: When the CCP March enters Beneficent Church at 2pm, we call on those who wish to stay in the streets to regroup there before continuing through the city.

***SUNDAY 3/20***
All out to Boston!
Call for a Boston Anti-Authoritarian & Anti-Capitalist Convergence on the Third Anniversary of the Invasion of Iraq

Sunday, March 20, 12:30 pm
Across from the Armed Forces Career Center at 141 Tremont St.
On the Boston Commons, Park Street T

On March 19th and 20th, popular movements across the world will march to commemorate the invasion of Iraq two years ago and to oppose all ongoing occupations worldwide.

As the state continues to send thousands of Iraqis and young working class Americans to their graves for profit...As it looks to expand its empire to Iran and Syria and Latin America...As it tramples on immigrants and women and people of color in our land and on the life and dignity of people everywhere...We must be ready to resist harder than ever.

We are Boston anti-authoritarians, anti-capitalists and anti-imperialists. We are sick of feeling powerless and demoralized as we allow ourselves to be herded into permitted routes and lame rallies by joint council of the police and the self-appointed leaders of the anti-war movement. It's time to open up the space for people to protest in their own ways and give voice to their own languages of resistance.

On March 20th, we will take the streets on our own terms, and in solidarity with the call from People's Global Action, we will seek to take our actions straight to the Boston homes of the war profiteers, state agencies and media outlets responsible for perpetuating this war. We will invite everyone who wants to join us in a public act of mutiny against the war machine.

Bring your drums and buckets, pots and pans, banners and black flags!
Bring your plans to push through the boundaries of the typical protest!
Bring your uncontrollable spirit of defiance!

On March 20th, the whole city of Boston will be our Free Speech Zone, and the warmakers and ruling classes will tremble at the sound.
