Crashing The MoveOn Party, A Call For You To Show Up To The 99 Percent Spring

Occupy Wall Street

A few things first. This is NOT about "saving Occupy from the Democrats," we already accomplished that months ago. This is also not about convincing the reader that the 99 percent spring has motives that do not jive with the sort of society we all want to help create. Look at the endorser list, we know the kind of society they want, Democrats in control of congress, blah. And lastly, this is not asking the reader to save the liberals from their own misguided ways.

It does require radicals to move a bit out of their comfort zone.....into the homes, offices and meeting places of your local MoveOn chaper. Why?

The MoveOn plethora of organizations has redefined the 1 percent to include a "small portion" of the 1 percent. Along with this they have redefined direct action to include only nonviolent civil disobedience that is only somewhat disruptive within the confines of state power. It is all in their training manual for the 99 percent spring teach ins they are holding over the next two weeks, that you can participate in. The exact details for your location are below, most events are on April 14th and 15th:

We should go for a couple of reasons:

They are on the defensive. Why the hell else would they care about the definition of direct action and class composition?

People are going to show up. They did the legwork, lets assume 10% percent of them go to May Day, a few donate some money to your local radical shop and a handful are trolled. Worth it.

Moving away from the keyboard to stop writing/reading a self defeating argument about why this is a bad idea will give your skin the sunlight that it so desperately needs.

Let's not pass up this opportunity to make enemies with the Obama re election team and make friends with folks looking for the alternative.

Training in what? Singing and assuring the cops that nothing substantial will be happening? 

Just another attempt by the status quo to lull the left into remaining ineffective with "non-violence" training.

Direct Action gets the goods.
