From A Buenas Noches Brigade...

by The Buenas Noches Brigade Thursday, Sep. 08, 2005 at 7:27 PM

...to a Buenas Noches Army! A Call for Autonomous Direct Action to Smash the Rise of Fascism and Racism In Our Communities A Call for Autonomous Direct Action to Smash the Borders That Capitalism Depends On This is a call to all people who will be converging on the San Diego/Tijuana, Campo and Calexico/Mexicali regions to engage in autonomous direct action to stop the Minutemen, document it and share it with the world.

The Minutemen have demonstrated that they are willing to change their

plans out of fear of disruption by Anarchists. The Minutemen have

experienced continuous disruption from the Buenas Noches Brigade in

Campo, and are changing the way they operate as a result.

In July and August, our affinity group, the Buenas Noches Brigade,

successfully engaged in night time interventions using sound, music,

light, anti-racist literature and poetry to completely disrupt the

activities of the Minutemen. In Arizona over a hundred migrant

people were caught. In California, only two migrant people were caught,

and they were picked up hitchhiking. Nevertheless, in California two

migrant people were mysteriously shot in the area where the Minutemen

were patrolling, while the Minutemen operation was going on. Although

Mexican authorities claim that it was a "bandit", nothing was stolen and

the assailants used laser scopes.

Every time we interacted with the Minutemen, we had multiple video

cameras with us and some of the footage was sent to and aired by the

corporate media. Even a small group with some bullhorns, video cameras,

cell phones and determination can destroy the silence and darkness that

the Minutemen need to hunt migrant people.

In September, starting on Mexican independence day, September 16th, the

Friends of the Border Patrol, a vigilante group with ties to the

Minutemen, have announced that they will be patrolling three locations:

Calexico, Campo and "Smuggler's Gulch", near Border Field State Park.

In addition, the California Minutemen will begin a patrol on September

11th in Campo, California, playing on the anti-terrorist rhetoric which

has drained our country's resources and heightened anti-immigrant and

racial tensions.

As it will be difficult to organize mass numbers of people to intercept

the Minutemen in these various areas, we are calling on people to

organize themselves into small affinity groups and do autonomous direct

action to disrupt and stop the Minutemen patrols. For more info on

affinity groups, try this: http://www.rncnotwelcome.org/agroups.html

Also, here are some more ideas for organizing autonomously:

Consider this an invitation. Consider this a list of targets. Consider

this a playbill. Do as you will. Come up with the tactics you and your

group are comfortable with, and which fulfills your feelings towards the

racist vigilantes.

Take some good photos or video. Wear a sexy mask. Be safe. Don't get

caught. Or do! Whatever you think will be the most effective to stop

these racist vigilantes from ever coming out of their holes again. Smash

the Minutemen. Or, just read them poetry at 3am. Or, cross the border

and shine lights back at them. Fireworks are interesting at night as

well. We must let them know that we will do what it takes to stand up

for the human rights and the freedom of migrant people.

Some good places to share the stories from your actions are

http://sandiego.indymedia.org, http://deleteTheBorder.org,

http://anarchistnews.org and http://infoshop.org.

As we see more refugees and more internally displaced people all over

the world from economic disasters, natural disasters and war in all its

forms, we must all defend their right to migrate, to stay and to go as

they please, and to be treated with dignity and humanity.

There will also be more centralized actions that you can take part in. In San Diego and Calexico, there will be large marches and rallies and a No Border Camp. More information about these events is available at http://deleteTheBorder.org .

We will take action for Freedom of Movement, Autonomy and Dignity for

all people in September. Join us, to end the rise of fascism in our

communities.

From A Buenas Noches Brigade, to a Buenas Noches Army!
