Announcement :: DNC
Sponsor An Activist (it might be you)
12 Jun 2004
When the Democratic National Convention (DNC) invades the city of Boston this summer (July 26-29th) our comrades will be accused of absurd and unsubstantiated charges. Regardless of the merit of the arrests, our friends will still be sitting in a jail cell as a result of these despotic acts. For months now, the Boston Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) has been actively building a fund to help provide for bail during the DNC. Today, we are asking for help in this collection.

Sponsor An Activist (it might be you) http://baamboston.org/abc/ldf.html

When the Democratic National Convention (DNC) invades the city of Boston this summer (July 26-29th), we naturally can expect a handful of things to happen: Huge amounts of taxpayer money will be funneled to corporate interests, the public transportation system will be rerouted and disabled, police will roam the street dressed like Ninja-Turtle Storm Troopers, local businesses and communities will be stepped on, and large numbers of our fellow activists and citizens will be arbitrary arrested to maintain the state monopoly of power and force.

Inevitably, our comrades will be accused of absurd and unsubstantiated charges. Regardless of the merit of the arrests, our friends will still be sitting in a jail cell as a result of these despotic acts. For months now, the Boston Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) has been actively building a fund to help provide for bail during the DNC. Today, we are asking for help in this collection.

In Massachusetts, the minimum bail is $40, and upon release it is forfeited to the state. As a result, it is crucial to collect funding prior to the convention. We are asking for people to help us in this campaign by "Sponsoring an Activist." While $40 is certainly not a minimum, it is a good yardstick for measuring how expensive it will be to free our friends and lovers from the state. And hey, the activist you sponsor might just be you.

For tomorrow's struggles, Boston Anarchist Black Cross

FREEDOM FIGHTERS OF AMERICA
13 Jun 2004
I read the N.Y. Times on line, Saturday, June 12th.
An article about the RNC. The Times labeled Anarchist the "troublemakers"!
Since the Times and other mainstream media types are labeling Anarchist troublemakers. Why not change the name from Anarchist to Freedom Seekers? Or something besides Anarchist.
I know why...
Whatever the name may be? The media will attack. For the sake of Corporations and mind control.
The enemy of the 21st Century is Media. If we can get media back? We'll win.
