ALL WELCOME!



The September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre (WTC) and the Pentagon by suicide bombers, leading to over 4,000 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 ?Increasing military spending ?Increasing spending on intelligence services such as the CIA ?Building a US-led global military force against "terrorism"

SO WHO ARE WE?

For the most part we are Youth, Students,workers, parents, sons and daughters..plain people! from all over the Country who want to fight in this anti-war movement, in our communities and schools from an anti-authoritarian perspective.

We believe that the main task as anarchists during this period is to stop the war drive and growing political repression, and to fight racism against ordinary people of Middle Easstern, South Asian, Muslims, or Arab decent, and others who are wrongly blamed for the attacks. People of color are the ones directly affected during this time, and will continue to be attacked even when we are told this war is over.

We ALSO call for support for Middle Eastern, North African, Central/South Asian and Indonesian workers against the fundamentalists. These goals can only be accomplished through mass action by the working class itself.

OUR DEMANDS:

* We call on US soldiers - particularly those from the oppressed minorities in the US - to refuse to fight Bush's imperialist and capitalist war

* We call for a campaign of rolling mass action - in both East and West -against Bush's war

* We call for proletarian risings in the Muslim world against capitalism, fundamentalism, terrorism and the US attacks

* Freedom and democracy for Palestine/ Israel and withdrawal of all US forces from the Middle East

* No compromise to our rights as indiviudal human beings. We refuse to sit still and live in a police state.

* We call on workers, activist and revolutionaries to mobilize against the war, and all consequences and actions that are taken by this war

* working class action and working class autonomy!

Our group is a National network of people, we are completely open group for discussion and dialogue and are going to be building and organizing around the anti-war/anti US Military Occupation movement from a non hierarchal, not patriarchal, anti-authoritarian/anarchist prespective. We would like for YOU individuals to get involved and plug in to help start up a group on your campus or in your community. The point of this group is to bring people together those who oppose the US military war drive and help empower individuals and one another in doing activism and organizing around these issues. We want to encourage more people nationwide to get involved, hold meetings and start organizing. We are in the process of settingup a nationwide web page that people can plug into to see how meetings, and events that this group does are going.
