I couldn’t help thinking of Chris Baker, one of our local A.M. radio talkshow hosts, when I saw this. Chris is always ranting about the anti-war crowd being full of Marxists. Well, heres some evidence (as if ANSWER isn’t enough) from Houston IndyMedia to support that argument:
The LoneStar Radical Marching Band is calling for a music-drum-noizemaking bloc to join the F15 [Feburary 15th - J.L.] anti-war march. Bring your real and make-shift insturments. We will be there around 1230.
Black Bloc Ballet!!!! Marxist-Leninist Psycho-Rhythm!!!
Anarcho-Punk Folk Drum Circle and March!!!!
JOIN THE FEBRUARY 15 ANTI-WAR MARCH
–JUST SHOW UP AND JOIN THE BAND–
The Montrose Art and Resistance Collective is calling for a critical mass of drummers, musicians, noise-makers marchers and puppetistas to join the Febuary 15th anti-war march. The collective will begin assembling @ Tranquility Park @ 12:30 pm for the 1:30 pm march against war in Iraq and repression @ home. We will begin with a drum circle @ Tranquility Park, then we will continue with a raucous spirited walk through downtown Houston to Eleanor Tinsley Park.
All particpants are encouraged to bring real instruments, make-shift instruments, costumes, puppets and props. The LoneStar Radial Marching Band will contribute rhythm, dance, music and noise-making to this march. The louder the better. The more the merrier.
Furthermore, as we are a financially lean and mean collective and essentially live off the land in our activities we also are having a make-shift/real instrument drive and need all the help possible. If you have old pails and buckets or insturments and noize-makers no longer being used, please contact us and we will be glad to take your music making donations.
We also plan to have another organizing meeting on February 9th. Please contact us if interested.
Blissfully yours, the Montrose Arts and Revolution Collective.
