STOP THE MACHINE! CREATE A NEW WORLD!
CALL TO ACTION!
DOWNTOWN PLAZA IN ASHLAND, OREGON
October 2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan and the beginning of the 2012 federal austerity budget. On October 6, 2011, we will stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Washington, D.C., where a huge rally will be taking place. We stand with them for a better world, for a world which refuses to sit in drugged silence as the system around it perpetuates oppression and the illegal wars that impose it. We will stand together against economic exploitation and demand that our economy meets human needs instead of Wall Street profits.
For too long we have stood idly by, hiding our faces from the suffering around us, hoping that it will disappear on its own or that some mythical Other will save us from our own society. It is time for us to wake up, to wake up to the fact that we create the substance of our society and that against the determined will of the people nothing can stand; we must take courage and act. Neither time nor a different president will heal the wounds in our world; only we the people can. We are up for the task. Together we can create the future we envision of peace, justice and equality.
