Event: Crash the tea parties! – Infoshop News [UPDATED]

On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers.

The following call to action and editorial opinion has obviously generate a bunch of controversy, both among anarchists and within the tea party movement. Infoshop News would like to make it clear that we did not write or author this call to action. It was authored by somebody anonymous and unknown to us. Infoshop News is an independent news service that publishes news and opinion from a variety of viewpoints. We are very open to publishing different opinions and rely heavily on user-submitted stories. The viewpoints published by Infoshop News don’t necessarily reflect those of our editorial collective or even most anarchists, anti-authoritarians and libertarians. In fact, many anarchists think this call is rather liberal in tone, but it should be noted that anarchists have a variety of opinions about this call and about the Tea Party movement in general.
