A call to action: SHUT DOWN BOSTON

THIS WAR MUST BE STOPPED NOW. IF WE WAIT UNTIL AFTER IT STARTS THE THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE WILL BE DEAD. WE MUST ACT NOW!!!!!

This is a call for autonomous acts of Civil Disobedience all over the city of Boston in order to stop business as usual.

call in sick of war, take the state house, surround the federal building, take over the interstate, grab ten of your closest friends and take over an intersection, do anything that will let the government know that if as long as they are at war this city will revolt!!!!!

shut-down the city (english)
17 Mar 2003
Go ahead, call in sick of war... I'm sure the Bush Regime will be so saddened.

What is it with the logic that blocking intersections will be so fabulous and shut down the war?

I do understand the concept, make it impossible for the average American to block out what our government is doing, and I don't disagree that it's important to make sure there is no way that people can go out without being aware.

But at the same time, have we learned nothing when it comes to protest movements?

As I said in an earlier response to a similar post, is it catharsis you're after, or ending the war?

So go ahead, ring Federal Bldgs, take over the Common, make real statements, bring your grandparents! Just do me one favor, before you block the Central Artery, think what that will truly accomplish, blocking a highway, or ending a war?

PS- if your grandparents are willing to help block the expressway, that'd be different.


"there are those who can tell you how to make molotov cocktails, flamethrowers, bombs, whatever you might be needing. Define your aim clearly, choose your ammo with that in mind. It is not a good idea to tote a gun or a knife, unless you are proficient in it's use. All swords are two edged, can be used against you, by anyone who can get them away from you. Success will depend mostly on your state of mind. Meditate, Pray, be prepared, at any time, but don't get uptight. The guns will not win this one, they are an incidental part of the action, which we better well damn be good at. What will win is the sustenance we give eachother, the energy we plug into, the fact that we touch, share food, the buddha nature, from everyone friend and foe, like a million earthworms, tunneling under the structure until it falls"
