January 20th Revolutionary Anti-Authoritarian Bloc, Update

by Barricada Collective Sunday, Dec. 24, 2000 at 8:25 PM
barricadacollective@hotmail.com Barricada, PO Box 73, Boston MA 02133

A CALL FOR A UNITED REVOLUTIONARY PRESENCE AT THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION WE ALREADY KNOW WHO WON… CAPITALISM AND THE RULING CLASS TAKE TO THE STREETS OF WASHINGTON AGAINST CAPITALISM, AGAINST THE STATE, AND AGAINST THE DEATH MACHINE OF GLOBALIZATION CLASS WAR NOW...FOR A CLASSLESS, STATELESS SOCIETY SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 2001. WASHINGTON D.C. 10 A.M, PENNSYLVANIA AVE. AND 14TH ST NW

errorThe Revolutionary Anti-Authoritarian Bloc has been working hard to make the January 20th mobilization a success, and so far it looks like interest is high, as we are currently networking with people from all over the USA who plan to come to Washington and march with us. In order to keep people up to speed on what is being planned and other information as it becomes available we are posting the following information, as well as re-posting the call for those who may not have seen it.

We strongly encourage people to help spread this information as much as possible, by forwarding it to lists that they may be on (especially city or regional lists) or by printing it and distributing it, in order to help continue to get the word out.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The RAAB plans to take part in a variety of actions during inauguration day. For a variety of reasons, we cannot at this time disclose the details for all the events planned for the course of January 20th. For the moment the initial assembly point is around the large Class War banner that will be at Pennsylvania Avenue and 14th St. NW. However, amongst other things, there is currently talk of a march which will start earlier than the International Action Center March. This is however not yet confirmed. Therefore, for regular updates on this as well as other events please send a request to be subscribed to the Barricada e-mail list to barricadacollective@hotmail.com

Also, we would like to take this opportunity to make it clear that the decision to march at the IAC march does not represent an endorsement of the IAC. We are simply choosing to use the IAC march as the initial assembly point for the bloc because of issues of safety and convenience, as the IAC meeting location will be legal and crowded. We will however be an independent bloc with our own banner and our own revindications. During the course of the march For Class War, For a Classless, Stateless Society, information about the rest of the days events will be distributed through fliers and word of mouth.

Needless to say, Washington on January 20th will be a city swamped with all the branches of the repressive forces of the state, including over 4,000 policemen. Therefore, we are providing some information that we feel it is important for people to have in order to minimize the risk of unwanted run-ins with police and to help those who come to Washington for this day.

-There will be what is being termed a Hub, for meeting during the day, although not necessarily a convergence center. Again, for the address once it is available, contact Barricada.

-Groups of 25 people or less do not need a permit to demonstrate along the inaugural parade route. Inaugurauction intends to eventually disperse into groups of 25 or less along the parade route and have a presence by being spread out around the city. The bloc will decide, through consensus decision making when the time comes, what direction to take once the march has ended. However, it is important that people who intend to come in black bloc are dressed in a manner that would make it at least to some extent feasible to mix in with the crowd. For example, patches and easily identifiable pieces of clothing are not suggested. This is always the case, but even more so for January 20th.

-Banners and flags our obviously suggested and welcome, but they may become a nuisance later in the day if you do not have a place to leave them and they are large and/or heavy. Therefore, think about whether you want to have them with you or not.

-A legal team is in place in case it comes to be needed on the 20th. Unfortunately, the exact phone number that people need to have on them in case of an emergency is not yet available. Once more, for information as soon as it becomes available, contact us.

-A final note, for those who receive Barricadas monthly magazine: In the January issue there is a text very similar to this one. However since going to press we have decided to no longer work with the Justice Action Movement. They have been showing themselves to be increasingly dominated by centrists and reformists, collaborating with police and welcoming even Democrats who clearly state that they are protesting simply because they feel Bush should not be president in their desperate pandering to the mainstream. There has also been a lot of anti-anarchist, anti-Marxist, and pro-patriotic talk on their discussion list. Therefore, while we wish them the best of luck, we are separating ourselves from them as, while we attempt to be inclusive and non-sectarian, we have to draw the line somewhere.

A CALL FOR A UNITED REVOLUTIONARY PRESENCE AT THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION
WE ALREADY KNOW WHO WON CAPITALISM AND THE RULING CLASS

TAKE TO THE STREETS OF WASHINGTON AGAINST CAPITALISM, AGAINST THE STATE, AND AGAINST THE DEATH MACHINE OF GLOBALIZATION

CLASS WAR NOW
FOR A CLASSLESS, STATELESS SOCIETY
SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 2001. WASHINGTON D.C. 10 A.M, PENNSYLVANIA AVE. AND 14TH ST NW



On Saturday, January 20th, 2001 thousands of people from all over the United States will converge on the streets of Washington, D.C to protest against the dictatorship of the corporate class, the circus of US representative democracy, and the international death machine that is the US government.

The demonstration in Washington the day of the presidential inauguration is a great opportunity to demonstrate our opposition, not only to whoever it is that may eventually win the presidency, but to the entire state system, from the dictatorship of capital, to the sham of representative democracy by making Washington ours during inauguration day and disrupting the ceremony of the ruling class. In the spirit of the mobilizations of the past year, from Seattle, to Washington, to Cincinnati, and everywhere in between, we are calling for revolutionaries to stand together as a bloc and refuse to serve as mere numbers for reformist and authoritarian organizations that dont represent our desires, aims, or aspirations. Instead, we propose a demonstration that not only highlights our opposition to the present order, but also puts forth revolutionary anti-authoritarian alternatives.

Therefore, we are calling for anti-authoritarian revolutionaries to bring their banners and flags, be they black, red, red and black, black and green, or whatever else and gather in Washington at 10 am on Saturday, January 20th, 2001 at Pennsylvania Ave. and 14th St. NW under the slogan Class War Now...For a Classless, Stateless Society. We are not calling for any particular tactics, simply for revolutionary anti-authoritarians to come prepared to march on the Presidential Inauguration and for a festival of resistance, struggle, and revolutionary alternatives to the capitalist system.

It will take a lot of work to make this mobilization a success and a show of force for the North American revolutionary movement. If you wish to help make the January 20th initiative succeed , spread the word, organize caravans to Washington, copy and distribute this call, make banners and flags, keep in touch as details of the mobilization become available, contact us to endorse the call, and come to Washington on January 20th ready for a festival of resistance.
