We cannot let the government desire to sabotage us allow us to become as intolerant and prejudiced as they are!!! Since the beginning of Occupy, many of us experienced activists have been concerned about the presence of undercover officers and the use of COINTELPRO-style methods to divide and coquer us.
It may be no strange coincidence that just as the Occupy movement is consolidating around the principle of non-violence--something we women are naturally good at--International Women's Day has arrived. LET'S SHOW SOME SOLIDARITY AND ATTEND THESE ACTIONS EN MASSE (Some of them overlap on March 8th, so try to attend some of both!):
WED., FEBRUARY 29TH: 6:30 pm WOMEN OCCUPY/CODEPINK 3/8 COSTUMING 2010 LINDEN, VENICE 90291
For eternity, people who were opposed to their governments or oppressors have united against them. In a democracy, we are theoretically allowed to peacefully throw off an unwanted government by voting them out. However, most of us of any experience or knowledge of our vertical political process in the U.S. know that in our country, the political process is rigged against the people.
