26-05-2004 11:45

Dear friends,

We don't want to go to political discussions, or sit
through political speeches, stand with placards
outside the town hall, or watch as the various leftist
sects recruit, sell, and shout their crap. We want

revolutionary, anti-capitalist PARTICIPATORY event
that would be a space to inspire ourselves and others,

collective decisions. Commune with our earth our
MOTHER, folow her wisdom love and understanding:
