People Opposing War,Empires, and Rulers.
The September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre (WTC) and the Pentagon by suicide bombers, leading to over 3,000 deaths have grabbed world attention.
We anarchists, anti-authoritarians and socialist libertarians condemn the attacks and extend our condolences to the families of those injured or killed. The death of thousands of ordinary civilians - including many ordinary workers - is not acceptable. The use of civilian aircraft for such an operation is authoritarian and coercive and shows the contempt of terrorists for human life.
It also shows that the terrorists are anti-working class: attacking people just because they are "American" regardless of their class position is reactionary and xenophobic.
At the same time as we oppose the terrorism of the bombers, we oppose equally the terrorism of all states, especially the US government This capitalist military-industrial machine has been involved in more than 216 armed interventions against other countries and regions. We condemn any and all attempts by the Bush regime to use the attacks as an excuse for war against Afghanistan or any other country that is deemed to be a "terrorist" regime. The main victims of such a war will be ordinary people, workers and peasants. The ruling elite organized in the Taliban will be mostly unaffected because they have the money to hide and to protect themselves. Bush and the US elite were hardly affected by the WTC attacks, equally, the Jehadi and Taliban groups will also be unaffected.
We are also totally opposed to any attempt by the US capitalist class to build a global "anti-terror" coalition or to increase their repressive powers. We are against the Bush campaigns of extending police powers of arrest and surveillance
