Are you sick of all those boring, jingoistic July Fourths you've 
suffered through? Do the red, white, and blues bring you down? Left cold 
by summertime glorifications of militarism and empire? But you still do 
love grilling and relaxing with friends, don't you? Well then, the 
Anti-Imperialist Picnic is for you! On July 4th at 12 Noon come on out 
to the Allston/Brighton Charles riverside. It will be right next to the 
canoe and kayak rental place.

People will meet up to have a picnic and NOT partake in the July 4th 
spectacle. We meet on this day to say NO to the U.S. government's 
imperial intentions, its war on working people worldwide, and its 
exploitative economic system. We come together to show solidarity with 
people who are fighting against capitalism, colonialism, imperialism, 
racism, patriarchy, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and all other forms 
of oppression!

Wed. July 4th   Noon to 4 PM

Meet Boston's Anti-Imperialist Activists
Celebrate Independence for All Peoples
Celebrate the Movement for World Peace

We will be there early to stake out a picnic table and set up.

endorse and bring food or beverages to share!

Directions: Head west on Soldiers Field Road. After the Eliot Bridge,
the Charles river will be on your right. Look for the first parking area
to pull off the road. We will be near the Kayak rental area.
If you are coming by public transportation, take bus 70 to Western Ave.
