The R68 Alliance is made up of activists locally known as the All Nations Alliance. The All Nations Alliance sponsored the Denver City Council resolution that made Denver the first major city in the country to take a stand in opposition to the Patriot Act and was also instrumental in exposing the Denver Spy Files and the JTTF’s and FBI’s role in those files, in addition to organizing numerous anti-war, anti-racism, anti-imperialism rallies actions and protest, including the G-8 protest in Denver!
We believe that actions can best be coordinated by local grassroots
efforts. We encourage national organizations’ efforts during the
convention, but we ask that you please respect the proud and rich
history of organized resistance that exists in Colorado.
Uncoventional Action (MySpace)
Anarchists and Anti-Authoritarians: join us in Denver, Colorado, August 24th-28th as we engage in coordinated Direct Actions against the Democratic National Convention, its corporate sponsors, and the military/police occupation of public space. Respecting diverse tactics and the autonomy of affinity groups and individuals, Unconventional Action has created the following framework to maximize our impact as we disrupt the DNC.
Unconventional Action's strategy at the Democratic National Convention will hold the Democratic Party accountable for promoting unjust policies: environmental degradation, the enforcement of arbitrary borders, attacks on the poor, complacency in war, and racist policing. We will expose to the nation that the Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin, both parties funded by the same corporations and upholding the same unjust political system which fails to meet the needs of the vast majority of people. Anarchists and Anti-Authoritarians are urged to engage in a broad variety of tactics to disrupt fundraising events and prevent Democratic delegates from voting for no-choice candidates. Unconventional Action will honor and support autonomous actions while coordinating a highly publicized assault on the pageantry, violence, and abuses of the Democrats and the two-party capitalist system.
Unconventional Action will target a variety of the 1,500 proposed
fundraisers, countless delegate hotels, and designated institutions
perpetuating global injustice. Using space reclamation, street theatre,
direct confrontation, positive action, and a broad array of other
tactics, we will force the national media to question the Democratic
Party's failures, hold Democratic candidates accountable for their
abuses of power, and engage in direct actions that reflect our ultimate
goals of joy and liberation through creativity and confrontation.
Unconventional Action is an emerging network aiming to complement the work of local organizers in Denver and the Twin Cities with regional organizing throughout the rest of the country. Our goal is to build a horizontal, inclusive framework for protests that will disrupt the upcoming Democratic and Republican National Conventions. We are currently organizing meetings, propaganda, and consultas in our communities and encourage those in other regions to do the same.
We aim to organize militant direct action that manifests
opposition to both the Democratic and Republican Parties. As
anti-authoritarians, we oppose so-called representational politics, but
even those who still believe in it must understand that we can only
have leverage over our rulers by showing our own power, that we must
back our demands by demonstrating that we can interfere with their
business as effectively as they interfere with our lives.
