Description

We have decided to use the popularity of the video of us taking down the "No" posters as a platform to publish a communiqué explaining our actions. Firstly, let us state clearly that these posters are homophobic propaganda, offensive not only to queers, but also to single parents, and anybody who wasn't raised by their biological mother and father. This is a simple fact and nobody can reasonably argue otherwise. Next we must ask a question about public space. Who owns public space? Who decides what posters, or advertisements, or billboards that we, the public, have to look at? As anarchists, we believe that anybody should feel empowered to alter public spaces however they see fit. Do we want our public spaces to be forums for the dissemination of homophobic propaganda? Why should you, I, or anyone tolerate our public spaces littered with homophobic, racist or sexist propaganda? Besides, we don't think people should be taking this whole “democracy” thing very seriously anyway. It's a fucking joke. The society we live in is obviously not a democracy: we are asked every five years which representative of the ruling class we want to make decisions on our behalf, all the while the real decisions are made by those with economic power anyway. Sometimes we get to have referendums, but only at their discretion. So when the fuck are they going to give us a referendum on abortion? And with regards to this referendum, what kind of fucking democracy is it where people can vote on whether or not they think you should have freedoms that they already have? As such, we have embarked on a campaign to tear down every last "No" poster in the city! We are actually just one group of many who are participating in a competition to see who can collect the most "No" posters. Tearing down "No" posters is fun, and we encourage everybody to do it! Once you have your posters, don't just throw them away! They're actually quite a versatile building material. We're using them to fix a roof, but we've also heard of people using them to build a dog house, or a shelter for their bikes. Be creative! There is a grand mystery prize awaiting the group who collects the most "No" posters, so get cracking! Be warned though, it'll be difficult for anybody to beat us ;)
