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.

We are dedicated on working with our Middle Eastern

brothers and sisters not just by telling them how to

organize but actually by listening and working along

with Middle Eastern cultural groups and Islamic

centers in educating ourselves and one another, and

building a strong resistance against the war and US

military occupation.

people of Islamic and Middle-Eastern descent

Middle East and the Islamic world
