(A)nti-Capitalist Christmas/Holiday Season – Tomorrow! 3PM

Hello all our dear elf friends! Tired of Santa getting all the profit from our handiwork?

The holiday season is rapidly approaching and some of us elves couldn’t help but think that with all this Occupy business happening across the U.S., maybe it was high time we occupy something ourselves! Santa has commodified and profited from our jolly nature and nimble hands long enough. So, we invite all of you to join your elven friends and comrades on December 17th, 2011 at 3PM in Hungarian Freedom Park (Speer & Downing) where will we gather and then proceed to march directly to where Santa resides next to the beating heart of capitalism and consumerism.

We’re elves right? So bring your holiday spirit, magic, and mischievous nature!

Our demands are simple: Elves desire everything for everyone. We desire liberation. We will stop at nothing to gain it.

Occupy Wall Street has captured the imagination of the humans for the last two months. There have been moments of inspiring victory, like the General Strike in Oakland, and then moments of gut wrenching repression, like the lethally armed eviction of the Occupy squat in Chapel Hill. Victories and losses. Steps forwards and steps back. This is the nature of the social war for humans and elves alike. Our collective capacity to dream outside of our own alienation and commodification is awakening from a long slumber!

Capitalism is taking its dying breaths. These are the death rattles our fallen comrades dreamt of years ago.

There are some who refuse to awaken their humanity and instead choose to continue their participation in systems of oppression and state funded violence. Some of those people might be just a moment away from opening their eyes and waking from the nightmare that is the American dream. Others may be all too blinded by their addiction to the crisis and that which they can gain from it.

Elves and humans are not so different from one another, though those who hold us in subjugation would have us believe otherwise. Our differences are our strength! Regardless of whether you’re a self-proclaimed anarchist elf or a human who voted for Obama and is feeling regretful, you are welcome here! Elves from the North Pole refuse to believe that elves from the South Pole are illegal and stand in solidarity with their migrant elven comrades! Those in power wish to divide us and segregate us from one another. They use false divisions like species, race, sexuality, gender, and others to dismantle our collective power. No more! We will break our own chains by dismantling the lies we’ve been fed our whole lives. We will create a liberated world of equality.

Join others in solidarity against capitalism. December 17th, 2011 at 3PM. Hungarian Freedom Park. Downing and Speer.

Bring signs, banners, voices, jingle bells, and big dreams of liberation ready to become a lived experience!

RALLY TODAY!!!!!!!!!!Tell Denver DA Morrissey: Drop the charges against Amelia Nicol!

Come out today from 2-5pm at the Denver District Attorney Office at 201 W. Colfax

Join other outraged community members outside Denver District Attorney Mitchell Morrissey’s office as we demand that he immediately drop the charges against Amelia Nicol and free her from the Denver County Jail!

On May 6th, over one hundred people marched against the wave of terror that has plagued our neighborhoods at the hands of Denver area law enforcement agencies.

As the march ended, a small firework was thrown into the air. …Police used this event as a pretext to chase and tackle a march participant, later identified as Amelia Nicol, and arrest her.

Days later, the media spun the story of the march, and the small firework became a deadly explosive. Amelia was accused by the District Attorney of throwing the “improvised bomb” at police officers. She has been subsequently charged with the attempted murder of two police officers and a host of other serious felonies. She faces over 90 years in prison for an action that dozens of witnesses claim never even happened.

The allegations against Amelia are completely fabricated. The police and District Attorney are attempting to stifle and destroy a growing social movement that has risen to challenge the ongoing police terror plaguing our communities.

This attack on Amelia is an attack on every single one of us who struggle for a world based on justice and freedom.

The Denver DA has made it clear that he will sit by and watch as police officers murder, beat, and brutalize members of our community, but that he will instead go out of his way to imprison those of us who stand up against these atrocities.

Stand with us on June 8th.

Demand freedom for Amelia!
Demand justice for Marvin Booker!
Demand justice for Oleg Gidenko!
Demand an end to police terror in Denver!

Please note that if you can not join us on the 8th, that Amelia has court the following day on June 9th at 9 am at the Van Cise Simonett Detention Center. Please join us there if you cannot join us on the 8th.

If you wish to support Amelia, but cannot attend either rally, please visit denverabc.wordpress.com for support info and updates on Amelia’s case, or contact Denver ABC at denverabc@rocketmail.com
