POWER! (People Against Opposing War, Empires and Rulers!) meeting
POWER is a group that we started and we have been meeting and have done
actions against the war. Our group makes decisions and approaches the anti
war movement from a non hierarchal, non-vanguard/sectarian form of
organizing but actually from an anti-authoritarian/anarchist point of view.
If you are against the war, opposing the US oil driven war machine, and want
to help organize with groups all over the nation, please join us.
