Anti-Capitalist Action in Support of Intifada
02 Apr 2002
From April 19th to the 22nd thousands will be protesting in the streets of DC. Only one demonstration will be directly confronting a racist machine of death, the American Israeli Political Affairs Committee and it's guest of honor Ariel Sharon. Militant Anti-Capitalists form your affinity groups and support poor workers in Palestine.

Over the last three years many mobilizations and mass actions have targeted with varying degrees of success the machinery of capitalism, war and profiteering. As we have continued to build successes, notably in Europe, we continue to see how with little accountablity how the elites in America can dictate to the peoples of the world their terms for occupation and rule. Only Americans, Canadians and other priviliged peoples can put an end to this unfettered ability to enslave thousands under the physical and psychological weights of occupation and servitude to the market and it's interests.

A prime example of the coincidences of corporate globalization and military conquest is that of Palestine. As an outsourced army for American business class interests the Israeli Defense Forces keep the Arabs divided and at war with a proxy imperialist army while the United States oil interests, like the Bush family, wreap the profits off of cheap oil and enlarge their market share by creating "oppurtunities" in the Saudi market, check the Iranian market and sanction the Iraqi market while enlargening their interests in the Caspian Sea Basin (i.e. Afghanistan). This is just one of the many easy examples of how politics, business interests and proxy militarization benefit the ruling elites. While we may write off the national aspirations of Palestinians as authoritarian and nationalist, something most anarchists do not easily apprise, although one could easily point to famous Italian anarchists that rushed off to the aid of Egyptians when fighting the British Imperialists, we have a duty to aid those that seek our help and to stand up to our own ruling elites here in America.

I could launch into a tirade of emotional arguments for militant anti-Capitalists to take action against the business class proxy war against the workers of the world in Palestine. I will not because the real pain of the situation can not be penned, I leave that to IMC-Palestine ( We have been called to action by the Committee in Solidarity with the People of Palestine. They have asked us to take action against the occupation of Palestine from April 19th-22nd. Sisters and Brothers in the fight for a libertarian socialist, democratic socialist or simply autonomous communities, we should take up this cause because it is our cause: the promotion of justice and equity. We continue to witness how our own communties deteriorate under the guise of corporate globalization, we continue to see that these ruinous capitalist expeditions take our brothers and sisters and throw them into the fires of war. We have a chance to push back the tide of conservative and fascist swelling in the earth this day. I ask you to take action in solidarity with the CISPP. Form your affinity groups and head to DC. March with those fighting the same entities and interests in Columbia on April 20th. And on April 21st and the 22nd help shut down Sharon and his American allies in the Zionist group the American Israeli Political Affairs Committee, a pro-corporate globalization group as well. We need militant Non-violent Direct Action to shut down the war machines. This may be the time for us to put up a front against this inhumane catastrophe being levied against the people of Palestine. This is our oppurtunity to stand up and say no more to the unchecked ruining of the earth and it's peoples.

Please checkout the CISPP call to action at

There will be an Spokes Council that weekend. Form your affinity groups. Come to DC. And reclaim some abandoned buildings in the process or camp in the luxuriant green hills of Maryland, Virginia or West Virginia. Now is the time. Now is the time to continue the fight and push back the tide of corporate colonization.

In our diversity of tactics is strength.
