A Call For Decentralized Protests The Day After the Elections
21 Oct 2004
Denounce the corrupt elections!
We live under a corrupt and undemocratic political system. Signs of systematic disenfranchisement of voters though discarding of registrations, illegal purging of voters with names similar to those on felon lists, unreliable voting machinery, intentionally misrepresentative polling and skewed media coverage all point to one undeniable conclusion: the elections will be a farce NO MATTER WHO WINS.

After the previous presidential elections we sat quiet while an illegitimate and corrupt president was installed. For nearly four years we have witnessed an unprecedented erosion of our civil liberties and a blatant disregard for the Constitution. These are the losses we earned by remaining silent: NO MORE!!!

On November 3, 2004 it is time to rise up in massive protest and direct actions. We must denounce the electoral process NO MATTER WHO WINS.

If you are a member of an organization, please discuss the call for protests with your fellow members. Resolve to take a stand! If you are an individual, plan some act of defiance on November 3 and carry it out!

We are not lemmings. On to revolution!

Protesting is a good idea- but why nov. 3? I think inaugaration day makes a whole hell of alot more sense if you want to protest the new guy, or Nov.2nd if you want to protest the electoral process, that's when people will be thinking about it, that would be the DIRECT way of doing it.

I think a centralized and violent Blitzkrieg protest using dual-use consumer goods, cell phones, and everyday vehicles would be much more effective. So many people are expecting a chaotic, disorganized mess that an organized one will throw them off guard. Remember, impotent, slow, lagging, chaos is the locall state paradigm.

I noticed that once I mentioned violence nobody touched this thread. That leaves only the author of the thread and myself having made posts to it. We have one person exhorting the Parsons crowd to act like disorganized blithering idiots, and another, myself, exhorting them to put up or shut up.

They appear to have shut up. Anyone who knows me would know that I have visited numerous so-called militant or progressive organizations to see if they were for real or not. I have determined in my travels that the Harvard Zapatistas, the NBPP, Nation of Islam, ARA, and NEFAC are not bonafide organizations. They respond favorably to the idea of disorganization, not fully comprehending chaos theory, and are inert groups.

I am not an inert group. I openly sided with Timothy McVeigh for a solid year after April 20th. Few agreed with me, and all of those were NRA members. This indicates that organizations like the NRA are more "real" than the local progressive organizations. That means that they are not tea cozy wearing whatreallyhappened surfers who are shitscared of agent provocateurs.
