Update on leftist ANSWER March in DC on April 12

Posted on 04/10/2003 9:43:24 AM PDT by Gopher Broke

OCCUPATION IS NOT LIBERATION: Why We Are Marching on April 12

March Will Target Corporate Profiteers, Fox News and the Pro-War Media

Having slaughtered and maimed thousands of Iraqi people, the U.S./British invasion forces are celebrating the use of their massive, overwhelming and brutal military power to crush resistance to their invasion of Iraq. The images portrayed in the U.S. media conceal the reality. While hospitals are overflowing with civilians and soldiers, the streets of the country are littered with incinerated bodies, destroyed homes and families buried alive. (See "Amid Allied Jubilation, a Child Lies in Agony, Clothes Soaked in Blood," Robert Fisk, The Independent (UK): http://news.independent.co.uk/world/middle_east/story.jsp?story=395117 )

The Bush administration is moving rapidly to impose a colonial-style occupation government on Iraq. This is not liberation. It is the use of overwhelming firepower to seize the land and resources of Iraq, and eliminate Iraq's sovereignty, while violating the most basic principles of self-determination. This is a war for Empire. The Bush administration, having carried out a war of conquest in Afghanistan and now in Iraq, will now step up its plans for future wars of aggression in the Middle East and elsewhere.

The people of the United States and the world must stand together with all of those who resist in the Middle East to say no to imperialism and to Empire. The occupation of Iraq will be used to set the stage for intensified war planning against Syria, Iran, southern Lebanon, North Korea, the Philippines, and against the Palestinian people who continue to resist occupation in their homeland. On Saturday, April 12, people in Washington DC and around the world will continue the mobilization against the invasion and the occupation in an international day of action with demonstrations in major capitals around the world.

The global movement that suddenly emerged in the past six months in opposition to Bush and the U.S. war drive is a singularly important development. People all over the world, in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America, in the United States and in Europe marched in coordinated action. These movements have now defied borders and built an international voice of solidarity. Even the New York Times on February 17 referred to this movement as the second "superpower" in the world.

This movement represents the hopefulness of the planet that war, imperialism, oppression, racism and any form of colonialism can be overcome through the globalization of human solidarity.

It would be the most tragic and wasteful outcome if this movement ­- less than a year old ­- decided that its efforts had failed because Bush and the Pentagon proceeded with their slaughter in Iraq. The war on Iraq does not prove the failure of the anti-war movement. If anything, the war on Iraq proves only that the economic, political and military authority in the United States is morally bankrupt. It is nurtured by a system that has become addicted to militarism and war.

Dick Cheney, speaking on behalf of the administration, promised after September 11 that there would be "endless war" and a war lasting a lifetime. These were neither idle comments nor rhetorical flourish. Since then, the administration has been absolutely brazen about its planned military adventures abroad and its systematic war against Arab Americans, Muslims and civil rights and civil liberties at home.

While they will never admit it, this planned "endless war" is a class war waged by the U.S. government on behalf of corporate and banking elites against all those governments in the formerly colonized world that have dared to maintain nominal independence and control over their natural resources. Bush put it succinctly when he said to the world "you are either with us or with them." Working people in the United States have nothing to gain from this war for Empire. It is for the enrichment and power of the same corporate and banking circles that have engaged in mass layoffs, union busting, wage cutting, elimination of healthcare and other benefits. In fact, Bush's war for Empire requires a massive transfer of wealth from social service programs to fund the Pentagon's rapidly expanding budget.

The Bush administration's plans for world domination are based on a fantasy entertained by the right wing and neo-conservative movement and corporate thieves that military power alone is the ultimate arbiter in world politics. The New World Order that they aspire to is similar to the Old World Order of 19th Century colonialism. The people of the world aspire for freedom, justice, equality and self-determination. Brute force alone will not reverse the long historical process whose necessary outcome is liberation. The essential element in this struggle is to maintain and build the global movement -- the force that has always and can win against military and economic might.

*** CHANGE OF LOCATION ***

The assembly site for the April 12 demonstration will be at 14th St. and Pennsylvania Ave. NW on the east side of the White House ("Freedom Plaza/Pershing Park"). This is a change from the Washington Monument grounds. The monument grounds are muddy from rain throughout the past week. We are expecting dry weather on Saturday.

MARCH ROUTE

The April 12 demonstration will include a brief rally and then a march that will target the offices of the corporations and mass media that have either profited from the invasion and occupation of Iraq or served as the principle purveyors of the lies and misinformation in service of the war machine.

Our march route takes us to the Carlyle Group, Fox News, the Justice Department and FBI, the White House, Bechtel, the Washington Post, the New York Times and the offices of Halliburton. Marchers will disperse at Farragut Square and take the metro from the Farragut West stop to RFK Stadium to get on their buses.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BUSES COMING TO DC:

*Bus Drop Off*

Bus drop off will be on 14th St. south of Pennsylvania Ave. South. (between Pennsylvania Ave. and Constitution Ave. -- drop off on the north part of the block closer to Pennsylvania Ave). Buses should go to the bus drop off / rally location, drop off passengers, and then proceed to parking (see below). After the rally, passengers will take the metro from Farragut West to RFK Stadium/Armory (the bus parking location) to get back on the bus (details below).

*Bus parking at RFK Stadium*

We have arranged bus parking at RFK Stadium. Buses can park in Lot 8A. The cost of parking for the day will be $30 and buses must pay when they enter the parking lot. The bus drivers should indicate that they are with the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition event.

A map of RFK stadium showing the parking areas can be found at http://www.dcsportscommission.com/directions/dcsec_parking.pdf

*After the rally*

The march will end at the Farragut West metro station. Volunteers will be on hand to help direct people. Bus passengers will take the metro to RFK Stadium/Armory on the blue/orange line. There will also be volunteers on hand at this end to direct everyone to the appropriate RFK parking lot. Buses will be parked in Lot 8A. It will cost $1.10 for each passenger.

If your driver needs to sleep during the day, we recommend that he/she park at RFK and take the metro to the hotel listed below which has given us a special day-rate. Details can be found at http://www.internationalanswer.org/campaigns/a12/logistics.html#dc1

If you are in the D.C. area, show up for the "Rally for the Troops, Rally for America" Saturday between noon and 3 p.m. on the mall between 3rd and 4th streets. We need to get more people there than show up for this pathetic A.N.S.W.E.R. march.

Rally for the Troops, Rally for America - Saturday, April 12, 2003

Truly pathetic people. They are truly an arm of the Democrats. Many high profile Democrats have recently blasted Fox News and incredibly claimed that the media is biased to the right (what a joke!) In addition, Waxman and Dingell are trying to investigate American Corps. (ones that have tangential ties to the Bush Administration) that might be involved in reconstruction. It is clear that the DNC and its Big Labor, Big Hollywood and Big Enviromental Wacko coalition were financing this fifth column.

The truth must come out, and when it does the Left is going to be so damn discredited.

How can a country be addicted to imperialism and war if it has a war, oh, once every ten years or so?

I plan to get video of the LA protest on 12 April for my protest documentary. I'm going to be going mostly incognito (at least until I finish all the protest video I need), but if anyone happens to be wandering by there we might meet up. Freepmail me with cell phone numbers and I'll be in touch.

Other than the "empire" propaganda, the rest of the sentance is a good thing.
We're not a socialist country. We're a free republic.
Federal taxes should only be used for the security of the nation.
Liberals are truely bottom feeding idiots. They need to get JOBS. They can pay their own bills for a change.

IMHO, this is the reason the anti-war freaks have their panties in a knot over Iraq. They hate seeing another socialist state bite the dust.

A year from now when troop removal begins as the new Iraqi parliment implements their own domestic security force, I bet these goons will claim to be responsible for ending the US presence in Iraq.

LOL. They have to protest something, don't they? Anything will do for now. LOL.
Seeing they don't have to be concerned about going to work, they've taken up protesting as a hobby.
"We want all YOUR stuff" protesting is the new "groovy" thing to do I guess.

Three questions.

Is this event going on at the same time the answer protest?

The release from answer states that the protest location was changed from the mall due to ground conditions. The Support Our Troops Rally is being held on the mall. Did answer have to move the site because of a posible conflict?

If I attend the Support The Troops Rally will there be enough time to get over to the answer rally protest in order to beat the dog out of those idiots?

These folks have been all but irrelevent. This is simply the same hyperbole they have used in the past.

If the war had turned out badly (and it still could although it is less likely) then all this garbage they are spouting would seem prophetic not pathetic as it is now.

If they are wrong on this they can claim the only reason the US is out and NOT an occupying force is because "THEY" had the forsight to challenge the US and "GET THEM OUT" using these protests. Its a win win for them.

Judging by most recent polling, only 1 in 6 Americans opposes our action in Iraq -- consisting of aging hippies, ego-driven celebrities, leftist apparatchiks and brain-dead college kids. Their protests have zero effect in Congress. So let's just hope they continue to squander their time and resources like this.

They lie. This organization has been doing things like this for a very long time.

They are anti-American and have an anti-American agenda.

People have figured them out. Sure, there will still be uneducated people who attend. But I do not think we will see the numbers you saw before.

Look at the desperate appeal to "NOT let the US winning the War to liberate the Iraqi's" stop people from marching!! Pathetic.

In a video you see signs telling people "sign up here for classes on Marxism".. now "that" is their "real" agenda.

If you have a chance.. look at the video made by these intelligent BRAVE young people at an International A.N.S.W.E.R sponsored rally. Also, listen to a woman describing how she loves dictators!!

These people have provided hilarious programming on C-SPAN in the past so they are good for something. Unfortunately I find it difficult to practice debating when they rarely make a coherent point. What was the name of that hotel who cut them a deal? I don’t want any money going to Communists because they are supposed to be able to function in a cash-less society.

Thanks. I think we should all call the management and warn them that this group "International ANWWER" is the same group that had the VIOLENT WTO protests in Seattle.

They are admitted Marxists and are anti-American. Does their hotel really want to offer discounts to them??

Time to give a call to these people!! If they know then continue to offer discounts and to accomodate this group.. then they loose my business.

Here is what I sent:

Comments or Questions: On April 11th and 12th, it is being publicly stated that your hotel is offering discounts to a group called "International ANSWER". Do you know who this group is? They are the same organization that had the VIOLENT protests in Seattle at the WTO meeting. They are admitted anarchists and marxists. They organized the huge massive anti-war/America rallies around the world. They are extremely well organized.. but have an anti-American agenda. We visit DC on business and pleasure. We will be watching closely to see if you are promoting groups like these by offering them discounts. I'm sure our friends in the area would like to know of this developement too.

I got this from one of their other sites, VoteNoWar.org (time to update that name DUmmies.)

It is the power of the global anti-war movement that held back Bush's carnage for months, isolated him and his war plans, and now people are in the streets in huge numbers around the world to bring and end to this war. We are organizing the demonstrations in the U.S. for April 12 - the International Day of Action to Stop the War.

My GOD you people are pathetic. Take heart, for once you might have slipped in details of something that actually happened. People are in the streets in huge numbers, in Baghdad, to say something you can't; "Thank you Bush"

Don't these fools comprehend that when the IRAQI's are saying Thank you to him, its because they knew the personal pressure he was under from the likes of ANSWER? I mean, could this filth possibly do anything more shameful than protest this war?

Three answers.

Yes.

No.

Number three answer is long...

Speaking as a DC Chapter member who has gone up against these America-hating leftists at least 10 times since September 29, 2001 - we never resort to violence; we always beat them with the truth.

I think it hurts them more when we greet them with signs that: mock their lunatic causes, ridicule their puppet shows, identify their communist leaders, point out the governments around the world (Cuba, N. Korea, Communist China, Iraq, PLO, etc.) who help fund their "peace" rallies, praise OUR leaders, encourage them to move to Cuba (and elsewhere) for the free medical care, etc. --- not to mention all the fun we have turning their asinine chants around on them.

There will be time to do that kind of thing. DC Chapter members would be deeply disappointed if we didn't have time for that.

International ANSWER "resembles" this comment from your home page:

"He observed the invasion of his country by barbarians while the leadership spent time deciding what not to do with the unannounced visitors".

Only the "invasion" is being done "worldwide" by these anarchists. Many of us have studied these groups well, and are exposing them for who they are. That is the beauty of a FREE country. The truth CAN get out, don't you agree?

We can excercise our freedoms to spend money at certain establishments, and to promote or rally against companies or individuals that we either agree or disagree with. The beauty is it works for EVERYONE. But better yet it "keeps" us ALL free. Even the marxists who would destroy us. The problem for them, is they underestimate us, the MAJORITY of Americans. They may have pulled this last one off, in getting huge rallies around the world simultaneously.. by taking advantage of a horrible situation and using that to promote thier kind of hate, their agenda.

But Americans are intelligent and savvy. They underestimated that aspect of our nation. I can assure you that we are equal to their kind of activism. We have exposed them for who they are. It may not have been in the streets preventing others from moving about freely, or trying to stop supplies from getting to our troops, but we did it. We got the word out..and they are known for who they are.

Would you agree that was a good thing?

This is what I sent:

re: anti-war and peace protests.

You might take a look at the url's I've offered and decide if those organizations are the type you wish to provide aid and comfort to.

They each provide links to the other. Don't forget N.I.O.N.

Peaceful protest is the right of every American. When those protests turn violent and advocate the overthrow of the government during a time of war, something must be said and done.

For your consideration:


U.S. Constitution

Article III, Section 3: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.










Sedition: rebellion or incitement: actions or words intended to provoke or incite rebellion against government authority, or such a rebellion.


The U.S. Sedition Act

Whoever, when the United States is at war, shall willfully...promote the success of its enemies, or shall willfully...incite insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or shall willfully... utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the...military or naval forces of the United States...or advocate, teach, defend, or suggest the doing of any of the acts or things in this section enumerated and whoever shall by word or act support or favor the cause of any country with which the United States is at war or by word or act oppose the cause of the United States therein, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment for not more than twenty years, or both.

I am in full agreement that the truth is the best weapon for changing the minds of the protesters. However, I have reached the end of my rope with these morons. I do not have the energy to debate the subject of freedom and rights. I served, I bled, I will NOT back down! As an active duty grunt it was my duty to protect and defend these aholes, but I'm retired, old, and do not have any tolerance for these fools.

I sure if you mass manufactured signs that said "A prison for Every Child" or "Statues are People too" and handed them out at their rally the morons would carry them without even knowing what they said.

LOL. Have you seen the protestwarrior.com website? They have pictures of a protest that they crashed and had signs like the one you suggested.
