To our friends everywhere:
Yeah it’s overwhelming, but what else can we do –
search idiotically for nonexistent jobs in offices and wake up for the morning news?
Begin and act from our own conditions.
November 2009, this is what is happening: we have found each other, and we are learning to act,
This means developing close bonds,
learning what it truly is to say ‘comrade’;
someone who shares your conditions, shares your enemies,
and who you trust with your life.
Someone who knows that it is always necessary to take sides.
We have learned what it means to say we.
Now more than ever is the time to experiment, to try and try again.
To learn how to make better barricades, to discover our courage, to fight without end.
Of course we’ll make mistakes – we are only just beginning to wake up.
We’ve got the vision
We’ve got each other
Now let’s have some fucking fun.
We are with those barricaded in buildings, throwing rocks in the
streets, and drinking their Chancellor’s champagne.
From now on, this is all solidarity means.
To our comrades: multiply, expand, deepen what we have begun.
To our enemies: have fun with your ruins.
TOTAL SOLIDARITY WITH BERKELEY, DAVIS, UCLA, FRESNO, FULLERTON, NAPA VALLEY!
FREE THE ARRESTED!
DROP ALL CHARGES AND RESTRAINING ORDERS!
ADMINISTRATORS AND COPS OFF CAMPUS!
