Anarcha-La is calling on our anti-authoritarian sisters and brothers to join us on Saturday, March 20th for the anti-war march starting at noon at Hollywood and Vine.

As revolutionary anarchist-feminists and anti-authoritarians, we see the expansion of US militarism and occupation into Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and Palestine as the logical expression of a system built on racism, imperialism, and patriarchy.
As revolutionary anarchist-feminists and anti-authoritarians, we cannot separate our struggles in the US from the struggles of all oppressed people abroad. Our eyes are open to their lies! They try to sanitize and justify their state-based violence by claiming that war is the unfortunate, inevitable path towards peace. They cover up the slaughter of millions of innocent people and the human and ecological destruction it creates with such felicitous phrases as “spreading democracy,” and “protecting human rights.”
But the truth cannot lie buried….
The American empire is committed to dominating the world economically, politically, and militarily. We have over 800 military installations in 130 countries and our Special Forces operate in nearly 170 nations. We spend more on the military than the next eighteen nations combined. If nations won't let us in, we invade them or we tell them we'll boycott them out of our market. We have overthrown twenty-five governments since 1945, but would take a dim view if any nation tried to overthrow ours.
We use the language of women’s rights to sell war in Afghanistan. Since the occupation of Afghanistan seven years ago, the situation for women has worsened. Violence against women has increased to the point that statistics now show over 70% of Afghan women and girls are victims of violence; girls' schools are regularly bombed, teachers shot in front of their students, one if four Afghan women die in childbirth, and widespread campaigns exist to make vocal women's rights voices vanish.
By exposing the economic motives behind the invasions and debunking the myth of ‘liberation through occupation’, Anarcha-La is taking to the streets with an anti-racist feminism that can support the survival and self-determination of Afghan, Iraqi, Palestinian women and men!
We revolutionary anarchist-feminists and anti-authoritarians must oppose these wars. To oppose these wars means we must participate in and shape the broader anti-war movement and build anarchist contingents in mass marches. The success in defeating the US empire lies in our ability to create a mass-movement of black, brown, red women, youth, immigrants, poor who are willing to take to the streets to demonstrate the strength and power behind the anti-war movement. Without this people power, there is no hope that this government will alter its course in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and Palestine. We, as the authors of these movements, are the radical social change we seek.
Come join Anarcha and help build this movement on March 20th. We’ll be marching in the streets, armed with our vast knowledge, talent, and creativity. You can’t miss us! We’ll be marching as the PINK BLOC as a way to raise awareness to the human cost of war, namely that the greatest casualties of modern war are civilians, with a majority being women and children.
