26-05-2004 11:45Dear 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
instead to be involved in a dynamic, horizontal,
revolutionary, anti-capitalist PARTICIPATORY event
that would be a space to inspire ourselves and others,
to meet the movement on our own terms and not whilst
staring at a platform of would be leaders. We want a
space to discuss, argue, socialise and act upon our
collective decisions. Commune with our earth our
MOTHER, folow her wisdom love and understanding:
