People Opposing War, Empires and Rulers
WHEN: Monday April 8, 2002
WHERE: Long Beach Infoshop
LOCATION: 684 Redondo Ave. Long Beach CA
TIME: 8:00 PM
PHONE #: 562-434-1649
Some of the things that we will be discussing will be Know Your Rights workshop that POWER is presenting at Mosques in April, setting up Middle Eastern Womens Poetry night, Solidarity demonstrations with Long Beach Truckers and LAX workers. Please feel free to bring your agenda items and discussion topics to our meeting.
The US war drive is not over, the International campaign against "terrorism" has killed so many and is planning on striking once again. More than ever we need to stand with one another in solidarity, to organize, to let our voices be heard loud and clear. We OPPOSE 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, and anti-authoritarians 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 of 9-11 as an excuse for war against Afghanistan or any other country that is deemed to be a "terrorist" regime or part of the "axis of evil" by calling them that the Bush Administration is clearly trying to gather and build public support for a huge military campaign in those regions of the world. If those countries cannot be tied to the acts of 9-11 in any sort of way, then they are subjected to US "rule" that silently threatens that no state, except for the US is allowed to buy or construct "weapons of mass destruction. The main victims of the type of war the Bush Administration is planning will be ordinary people, workers and peasants. It will be the millions of children, like those of Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan who are already suffering in the Middle East, it will be the the farms, homes, hospitals, and schools that have been built and cultivated by families and communities over many generations. The ruling elite in those countries 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 Jihad, Mojaheddin, and Taliban groups will also be unaffected.
We oppose, will organize and speak out in clear voice against 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
