MAKING RESISTANCE VISIBLE

On Feb. 8th after the sun goes down a new city will arise in the night.
Will you join us?

As the United States wages a campaign of war and terror against
Afghanistan and elsewhere and targets civil liberties here at home, the
corporate controlled media would have us believe that all is fine within
the walls of this country. Catch phrases such as "America United" flash
from our TV screens as we are assulted with image upon image of flag
waving patriots and vengeful politicians. The powers of babylon would
have us believe that America is entirely devoid of any opposition to
these atrocities. Yet, as we all must know - opposition is everywhere.

We are disgusted by the landscape that surrounds us. It is time
transform this city, to transform this world. Since we live here,
Washington DC must be our starting point. It is time for a concentrated
effort to make our opposition and resistance visible. Imagine if you
walked outside one day, and instead of seeing images of blind
patriotism, war and greed you were met with images of a beautiful and
creative resistance. Images of hope and our dreams for a better world.
The seeds for a new world will be planted when we dig out the roots of
the current one. We are calling for a worldwide effort to make this
vision a reality. These acts will be in solidarity with the people
rising up in Argentina and the thousands confronting the WEF coke party
in NYC.

Everywhere we look is a potential canvas. Every bridge and overpass are
just waiting for a banner to drop. Every lamp post is just waiting for
wheatpaste and posters, or even to come down and block the road to
demand the people stop, wake up and rise up. It is time to make it
happen.

During the week of February 8-16 we are calling on people everywhere to
began to saturate our cities and towns with evidence of our resistance
and continue these actions long after the 16. Just as unlearning the
lies of America is a lifelong process so is the resistance to those
lies. Though the visual and physical transformation of our cities may
start on the 8th in a concentrated way it can not end till the social
make up is transformed as well. But by coming together in a concentrated
effort we can make it that much harder to wash away our art, to take
down our banners, to tear up our flyers, and to rebuild the pieces of
institutions that have broke so many hearts and dreams themselves.

In the coming months, Washington DC will be alive with our messages of
resistance. Join us everywhere in a collective escalation of opposition
to capitalism, war and domination of any kind, and don't stop untill the
whole bloody system is on it's knees!

Create alternatives. Destroy capitalism.

Don't get caught and never let anyone tell you the fight isn't worth it.

Anti-War Working Group
Anti-Capitalist Convergence, Washington DC

DO NOT TALK ABOUT PEACE UNTIL WE ARE FREE FROM THIS ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT
CREATES AND DEPENDS ON HOMELESSNESS, POVERTY, PRISONS, BORDERS, SLAVES,
ECOLOGICAL AND POLITICAL IMPERIALISM, AND MURDER. DO NOT TALK ABOUT
PEACE UNTIL WE ARE FREE FROM THIS ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT ENCOURAGES
SEXISM, RACISM, HOMOPHOBIA, ANOREXIA, AND RAPE. DO NOT TALK ABOUT PEACE
UNTILWORLDWIDE CAPITALISM, GOVERNMENT, AND HIERARCHY ARE DESTROYED. DO
NOT TALK ABOUT PEACE UNTILL YOU ARE READY TO BRING THE WAR HOME!

What can you do? Tell your best friends. Get them together and make
plans in secret. Not in your house, not in your car, not on the internet
and not on the phone. Tell no one of your plans except those you wish to
act with. Walk around the city, and think about what angers you, what
would you tear down? What would you put up? What do you want people to
see on their way to work? While they are thinking about this world and
the city they live in? What do
you want them to know? To learn more about? About Capitalism? About the
intentional communites we could be building instead? About the suffering
people being devastated by the US in Afghanistan? About our civil
liberties being trampled and ripped away from us? About liberation?
