Anti-War? Don't Raise the Red,White & Blue - Wear Green & Black
24 Oct 2001
Modified: 31 Oct 2001
The U.S. flag and its colors are being used in an attempt to whip up patriotism and convince people that there is a "ground swell" of support for the U.S.'s "War on terrorism". People who want to express their grief for the victims of the 9/11 attacks, as well as the victims of the current bombing campaign against Afghanistan, should put down their flag and instead take up the GREEN & BLACK campaign
WHAT CAN YOU RAISE INSTEAD OF THE U.S. FLAG?
--WEAR GREEN AND BLACK
The U.S. flag and its colors are being used in an attempt to whip up patriotism and convince people that there is a "ground swell" of support for the U.S.'s "War on terrorism". People who want to express their grief for the victims of the 9/11 attacks, as well as the victims of the current bombing campaign against Afghanistan, should put down their flag and instead take up the GREEN & BLACK campaign

GREEN has been used in areas around the country to support people who come under racist attacks. It identifies us as allies so that people know who to go to for protection should they need it.
BLACK symbolizes loss of life, sadness, mourning. In this case, the loss of life of thousands in the 9/11 attacks, the current bombing raids, as well as the thousands more innocent people who die at the hands of U.S. imperialism around the world every day.
We call on you to stand with the people of the world against this war

WEAR GREEN AND BLACK!
The Arab People are Not Our Enemy They Are Our Sisters and Brothers
Our Grief is Not A Call to War

More Leninist front groups...
24 Oct 2001
If its not the Stalinists from the Workers World Party (WWP) and their front group International ANSWER, it is the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) and their front group Vietnam Veterans Against the War. The anti-war movement should be weary of all authoritarian intrigues by these organizations and their front groups.
A Sectarian by any other name...

I know I am certainly weary of anarchist sectarians, and I am not even a Leninist.

Don't be so Sectarian

I know these veterans. They have members of alot of ideologies included. They aren't sectarian like some of you.
There are pacifists, anarchists, leninists, maoists ect.

Isn't the point the message? You don't even say what you think about the green and black?

Check this group out. They are anti=imperialist but they don't advocate any solution. They let their own members do that in their own ways.
