Alright occupiers, trick or treat,

Let’s all go to Washington, DC, and have a Halloween night party!

Let’s celebrate the wonderful Coke/Pepsi presidential election now in progress … and the honest, feisty way our elected reps in Congress have conducted our nation’s business … pay tribute to the bold visions they’ve put forward.

At dusk on October 31, let’s gather on Capitol Hill, trick or treat Congress and party like we’ve never partied before.

Bring mask!</td><td><img title="What if they threw a stupid and nobody was stupid?" src=""></td></...


PS And if you cannot make it to DC then party in front of your city hall.



Yeah, we just need a different sort of soft drink OTHER THAN Coke or Pepsi. Maybe something like Orange Soda, since that may have calcium or something in it. I mean, it's not like there's anything inherently wrong with soft drinks; it's just the major corporate ones that make life bad.


can't read sarcasm, eh?

social war is like faygo, but faygo is not like social war.

Hello, this is mask.

Hey mask, you should come to DC on Oct 31 at dusk to trick or treat Coke and Pepsi. Bring Congress.

This got picked up in Athens pretty quickly...πάρτι-των-αγανακτισμένων-φέρτε-τη-μάσκα-σας

Yes well I'd imagine that there is some magazine distribution company that sells adbusters to Greek liberals. Cool story bro

is that how you think things really work?

Bring delusion!

My delusions, Dad. You don't have time for my delusions.

I've read Deleuze too!

Creepy Occupy plots Halloween havoc. Masked activists to trick or treat Congress, ‘party like we’ve never partied before’

In a creepy posting, the Occupy group has called for a “Halloween night party” in Washington, DC next month in which protesters are asked to wear masks to “trick or treat” Congress and “party like we’ve never partied before.”

The odd event is slated for dusk on October 31. It was announced on the Adbusters website, which serves as one of the main planning hubs of the Occupy movement.

The dictate for Halloween protesters to bring masks may be telling. This past May, Adbusters announced a shift in Occupy tactics away from routine protests and toward anarchy actions, including what is known as Black bloc tactics.

Black bloc is a tactic whereby protesters wear black clothing, scarves, ski masks, motorcycle helmets with padding, or other face-concealing items. Black bloc anarchists use the concealment to commit violent or illegal acts.

In an article entitled, “Battle for the Soul of Occupy,” the Adbusters activist magazine hailed May Day strikes last May, noting the “May Day General Strike was a surprising and bold success for the visceral side of the movement,” referring specifically to anarchy groups using Black bloc tactics.

Adbusters criticized Occupy’s collaboration with unions and labor groups as too mild to make progress, while crediting anarchists with taking the Occupy movement to the next stage of revolution.

“While most of Occupy put its energy into building coalitions with ’legacy progressive groups,” labor unions and immigrant rights organizations, these efforts did not yield the anticipated results. In New York, for example, despite amassing a coalition of over a hundred organizations and rallying a crowd of more than 30,000, occupiers were thwarted in their attempts to shut down banks or re-occupy Wall Street. And some Zuccottis have complained that union representatives actively blocked an attempt to lead the crowd toward direct action at the end of the night.

“Meanwhile in Seattle, Oakland, San Francisco, New Orleans and elsewhere, anarchists using Black Bloc tactics stole the show.”

Abusters stated that “for many, the Black Bloc represents a tactical innovation that suggests the future of Occupy.”

Continued the rag: “And Black Bloc tactics are just one aspect of the overall rejuvenation of anarchism that is happening right now including the increase of infoshops (there are two near Occupy Oakland: The Holdout and The Longhaul); the creation of bottom-up solidarity networks to replace top-down unions; providing free food on the model of Food Not Bombs; offering a compelling DIY aesthetic.”

Abusters declares that “anarchist occupiers are energized and their visceral tactics are attracting members.”

“Now, the power of the Black Bloc is growing within Occupy and pushing the movement in unexpected directions,” the magazine added.

Adbusters has been behind Occupy since the movement’s onset. The radical publication is reported to have come up with the Occupy Wall Street idea after so-called Arab Spring protests toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.

The Adbusters website serves as one of two central hubs for Occupy’s online planning. Adbusters is funded by the George Soros-financed Tides Center.

In April, WND reported that Occupy had partnered with anarchy groups to engage in joint “direct action” at the May Day protests this past May.

I dare someone to put out another call that takes this thing seriously.

do it. that is how ows started.

...and we all know how that turned out.

pretty well I'd say... damn closer to an insurrection now than in 2010.

^Being as no one who knows how to do it cares about Adbusters, and know one who cares about Adbusters knows how to do it.
