CALL 4 BLAC BLOCK IN OC & LA WHEN WAR BREAKS OUT

by . Saturday, Mar. 08, 2003 at 5:13 PM
. . .

.

BLAC BLOC – THE DAY THE NEW WAR ON IRAQ STARTS: Anti-war groups have
called for a protest the day the new US war on Iraq begins. The
protest will meet at 5pm the day the war starts in the following
locations:

ORANGE COUNTY: Bristol & Anton, Santa Ana CA (take the 405 and exit
BRISTOL)

LOS ANGELES: Westwood Federal Building (11000 WILSHIRE BLVD)

RECONVERGENCE POINT: We are calling on all people who missed the original 5pm meeting point, or who just want to see the resistance continue in the street to meet at the next day at 12:00 PM (noon) against at the following locations:

ORANGE COUNTY: Bristol & Anton, Santa Ana CA (take the 405 and exit BRISTOL)

LOS ANGELES: Westwood Federal Building (11000 WILSHIRE BLVD)

EMERGENCY ACTION FOR ORANGE COUNTY & LOS ANGELES WHEN THE U.S ATTACKS

ANTI-WAR ACTION CALLOUT

BRING THE WAR HOME (THE DAY THEIR WAR STARTS)

A CALL FOR BLAC BLOCKS IN ORANGE COUNTY & LOS ANGELES

In Afghanistan, the US military has killed thousands of people. The US spends billions funding genocidal policies against the Palestinian people. In Colombia, the US is escalating a civil war in which thousands of labor activists and peasants have been murdered. In Iraq, economic sanctions and radioactive weaponry have killed hundreds of thousands in the decade since the last war. The US “War on Terror” keeps expanding, threatening millions around the world. This is not a war between the people of the US and the people of the world. It is capitalism—a war on the poor. Investors in US oil companies will get a new pipeline through Afghanistan and increased access to the Iraq’s oil reserves (second only to Saudi Arabia). The weapons manufacturers will get new contracts and the US politicians
will have an excuse to increase their power. Meanwhile, the poor and working people of America will definitely not be better off.

We continue to live in a world of unemployment and minimum wage jobs, of racism and harassment, of surveillance and prisons, of impossible rents and evictions—a world not built for us, but on top of us. The brutal displays of the police in Oakland or L.A. bring to mind images of the Israeli Army in occupied Palestine. The thousands of Arab and South Asian desaparecidos in the US since September 11th recall the US-supported fascist regimes of Latin America. Even the foot soldiers the government uses to expand its empire will come home, as they did in the last Iraq war, with diseases from depleted Uranium ammunition.
For us, the poor and working people living in the US, the war is not in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan or Colombia. It is right here at
home, against the rich.

The growing anti-war movement has called a number of demonstrations in the upcoming weeks and months. We will be there in solidarity. But we are worried that our protests have become nothing more than parades. Protest isn’t protest if it doesn’t threaten the established order or physically disrupt the functioning of the war machine.

So let’s use our collective power to change things directly. Wear
black in mourning for the victims of capitalism, racism, state
violence. Let’s stick together and watch each other’s backs. Let’s
fight back.

Join us for a creative rampage.

LOOK FOR THE BIG BLACK “ANTI-WAR ACTION” FLAGS
