For a Global Disruption of the Empire

A Call for decentralized, local actions around the world on J20


In Solidarity with the DAWN (DC Anti-War Network,
//www.dawndc.net/) call for groups to converge from around the country and around the world to converge on DC, we call on those who cannot make the trip to DC to organize local actions in their own communities.

Why This Call to Action?

The empire can only function with the complicity of its populace, and the empire we face is global in nature. As a result, our resistance must be as global as the empire we are opposing. The war, neo-liberal economic policies, increased militarization and border controls, the manipulation of the media only for propaganda are faces of the empire that we are facing all over the world. We make this call because our opposition is not only about stopping the inauguration of one president, but about creating a world of dignity, freedom and equality for people all over the world who are currently being crushed under the boot of global capitalism.

We make this call in the spirit of many global calls to action that have come before us, in the spirit of an open invitation. This is an invitation to join in a global insurrection and absolute rejection of the U.S. policies of torture, disappearances without trial and preemptive war, which under the guise of legality and legitimacy threaten to spread around the world and endanger the freedom and safety of all people.

Our Rejection

We call on people around the U.S. and around the world to join in our rejection of the U.S. policies, but also in a rejection of illegitimate elections. Widespread election irregularities and the
systematic disenfranchisement of people of color have damaged any hope of a legitimate election in the United States.

Moreover, we reject an administration built on lies and illegal policies which violate not only the U.S. constitution, but violate the inherent dignity of the people of the U.S. and the people of the world.

We look to the traditions of Bolivia and Argentina who ousted their criminal presidents through non-violent mass mobilizations of people and we hope to do the same.

What Will J20 Look Like?

We call on the people of the empire to use their privilege of living within the empire to stop it from functioning on January 20th, 2005, the day that George W. Bush is to be inaugurated the next president of the U.S.

Together, we can stop the gears of global capitalism from turning. We call for actions across the U.S. and around the world which are focused on stopping the machinery of war and global capitalism. These actions include both mass mobilizations, street parties, Civil Disobedience and Direct Action as well as Assembleas Populares, Encuentros and other forms of real, direct democracy.

Alongside the bodies in the streets, we also call for networks of electronic civil disobedience, hacktivism, and tactical media to join in the struggle. Against the bio-electronic forms of empire dominating the conduits of capital, media, and everyday life, we make this call in the spirit of the Critical Art Ensemble, Conglomco, RTMArk, and all the radio pirates and Indymedia centers worldwide.

Who is making this call?

This call comes from that intersection of absolute militarism, indigenous resistance and the natural, organic movement of people that is known as the U.S. Mexico border. The call comes from a region which used to be part of Mexico, but is now known as San Diego, California. Living on the border, we have an influx of inspiration both from Seattle, San Francisco and Quebec City, but also from Chiapas, Buenos Aires and Cochabamba. We have seen both how war tears families apart as it sends our generation off to die and how occupation at home is very real and operates in our very neighborhoods.

We see hope in the People's Global Action hallmarks and we make this call under those hallmarks.

HALLMARKS:

1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism; all trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive globalisation;

2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and discrimination including, but not limited to, patriarchy, racism and religious fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full dignity of all human beings.

3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying can have a major impact in such biased and undemocratic organisations, in which transnational capital is the only real policy-maker;

4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which maximize respect for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as the construction of local alternatives to global capitalism;

5. An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation and autonomy.
