J20 International General Strike & Bush Inauguration Day Protest (diverse links)

by Yammy Monday, Jan. 10, 2005 at 4:00 PM

Collected, reposted, and forwarded everywhere -- the volume of protest information becomes the story (the media becomes the message) and then the protest itself is better understood even if the mainstream corporate journalists don't give it the attention it deserves. Cut, paste & please forward in solidarity -- everywhere!

Be part of he first worldwide general strike in history. Call in sick. Take a personal day.

Blockade the imperial procession.

Protests everywhere.


Please forward this along! Inauguration protest information --

Independent Media Converges to Cover Bush Inauguration

We are contacting you as an important member of the independent

media community to ask you to participate in, support or promote

independent media coverage of the upcoming presidential inauguration

in January.

From Jan. 10 through Jan. 24, independent media makers will converge

in the nation's capital to provide continuous coverage of the

inauguration through video, photography, radio, print, and web


We are a group of independent media makers in Washington, DC that

has formed to help facilitate and coordinate coverage of the


For more information, please visit our website at A list of our needs follows at the end

of this letter, along with information on how to join out listserves.

Information about specific media projects during the inauguration

will be available on our website in the coming weeks.

If you are in the DC area or coming to town for the inauguration,

we ask you to contact us to help coordinate independent media


We intend to provide a media workspace with broadband Internet

access, telephones, a limited number of computers for public use

and Internet radio facilities. Although we will appreciate and

request donations for use of the space, no one who legitimately

wants to use the space to create independent media will be turned


If you cannot come to Washington for the inauguration, please help

promote and distribute the independent media that is produced. For

example, post a link to our website on your site.

Repost or re-air content produced during the inauguration. Use

whatever forum you have to discuss and promote the independent media

produced during the inauguration. Share this letter and the existence

of our media center with your readership, listenership, viewership,

fellow journalists, photographers, filmmakers, and writers. Also,

consider sponsoring a trip to Washington for someone else who wishes

to create media.

Finally, we ask everyone to review the list of needs at the end of

this letter and help us however you can.

This year's election was won by a razor thin margin.

Indeed, almost half of those who voted did not vote for Bush. The

same was true of the last election. Despite this, the mainstream

media provided almost no coverage of the protests and general dissent

surrounding the 2000 inauguration. We do not want this situation

to occur again, and we are determined to use our voices and the

voices of others around the world to ensure that independent messages

are heard.

The success of delivering these messages depends upon how much unity

we can create in the world of independent media. One person acting

alone is one voice. Acting together, we are many voices, and can

pool our resources to rise above the din of the mainstream media.

With your assistance, we can ensure that the voice of independent

media is heard loud and clear.

Thank you for any support you can offer us.

DC Inauguration Media Group


We are a not-for-profit coalition of independent media makers working

on an entirely volunteer basis. Any money we receive in the form

of contributions will go directly towards supporting the creation

and distribution of independent media. A list of participants is

available on our website,

contribution of any amount. All contributions are tax-deductible

through the DC Independent Media Center. Complete information on

tax-deductible as well.

General Strike - USA author: Fed Up General Strike Thursday January

20, 2005 Inauguration Day

Show George II, "The W", how much we support his reign, by supporting

a General Strike on Thursday, January 20, 2005.

We must show the world that we are not satisfied with "black box"

voting, where there is no paper trail of the votes cast. Over 8,000

votes in precincts of less than 700, voting machines counting

backwards, misallocating the votes from Kerry to Bush. Dozens and

dozens of instances of unquestionable vote fraud aided and abetted

by Republicans both in the Corporate world and the Political.

We must show that "We the People of the united States of America"

are out here, are sovereign, and that we will no longer stand by

while our basic rights and liberties are ripped away from us like

bloody swatches of skin.

A "General Strike" means:

No Economic Activity Whatsoever for examples (list not all inclusive):

=B7 NO WORKING =B7 No buying gas =B7 No buying food =B7 No fast

food =B7 No paying bills =B7 No use of US Postal Service =B7 No

movies, Pay-Per-View, or video game rentals =B7 No taking public

transportation =B7 No paying of tolls (bridge, turnpike, etc.)

If we all, those who do NOT support the regime of George W. Bush

(et al), stay away from any economic activity on Inauguration Day,

we will hurt his supporters in the most significant way - in their

pocket books!

Imagine, millions and millions of folks missing work, holding

rallies, and not spending a dime that day (!!!). OhMyGod, the sky

will fall!

Repooplicans mobbing DC for the festivities, depending on the

'plebes' to be there serving them, and on Inauguration Day, everyone

is marching to a different drum! Who will wipe their - - noses? Or

gather laurels for them to rest upon?

Of course, a person needing medical attention, or ongoing care (i.e.

dialysis) is exempted.

Otherwise, we need to Shut the Country Down on Inauguration Day!

Get your family, your friends, your co-workers - women, men, black,

brown, WHATEVER! It doesn't matter your background; if you value

your freedom, and want to resist the fascists who are taking control,


Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike!

Strike! Strike!

J20 FLASHMOBS #1 Bush Contributor Exxon/Mobil 01.Jan.2005 20:01

Depending on the number of participants in your city, two or more

flashmobs could descend on various locations and then converge with

the main counter-inaugural protest (before moving elsewhere).

Esso/Exxon/Mobil provides an internationally unifying group of

landmarks and could provide a clear link between Bush, corporations,

oil, war, and the system in general.

Flashmobs could be a great way to rally the troops. It may not be

easy but it's also not to late (and might be fun) -- so get busy,

get active, get revolting!
