A 2018 May Day Call for the Triangle, NC

The following is a call for decentralized May Day actions and events in North Carolina.

We (1) address this call to any and all abolitionists, anti-capitalists, angry workers, anarchists, inside and outside agitators, daytime dreamers and nighttime ne’r-do-wells. After several ongoing conversations and the most recent triangle autonomous assembly, we are proposing a series of decentralized daytime actions on May Day, prior to folks converging at the 6pm march starting at the new DPD HQ.

You could picket a shitty restaurant that has screwed you or your coworkers, drop a banner over a highway overpass, make a scene at the office of a real estate company profiting off of gentrification, flyer the names of people killed by the Durham jail, host a call-in day for a political prisoner needing extra support, or a hundred other ideas.

Days like May Day are a time for finding new accomplices, new tactics, and new ideas–think of it as practice, or as a very old, now very dead comrade once said, “revolutionary gymnastics.” So start talking with your friends, comrades, local organizations, etc., and make a plan! And by all means, take a pic, write a statement, and (safely!) blast it out in whatever social media avenues you have available. News throughout the day will be available on twitter via @NC_autonomy.

See you on the first of May!

Drop a banner! Hell yeah! What awesome revolutinary gymnastics! The revolution is around the corner!


edit: I see it has been fixed. All is right in the world.

Is "autonomous actions" the facade of a small and networked conspiracy that will perform a handful of planned deeds and claim success for a illusory decentralized revolt?

Uhhhhhhh....no coment? I mean it's on the internet, so it will definitely spread...

So the autonomous assembly let a workers world front group control the media for the day of action? Gross

that twitter doesnt appear to be that or am I wrong?

No the person running it definitely works for WWP.

I plan on handing out some pamphlet forms of John Zerzan's "You May Be an Anarchist - And Not Even Know It" wherever I can.
