the Corporate Crackdown

We've all seen thousands
converge at roving trade
conferences to protest corporate
globalization. Now activists have
set a date to mark that spirit of
resistance year after year - July
4, naturally. A blast of symbolic
disobedience on this occasion
will force America to think hard
about the meaning of its original
revolution, and its subservience
to corporations today. And
though we're aiming at the
heartland, the question is global. What counts as "independence"? And
when will we win it back?

Where yesterday flew the Stars-and-Stripes, today will fly the
Brands-and-Bands. Some will wave it at the head of parades, some will
swap it for Old Glory in front of the Wal-Mart or City Hall, some will unfurl
it from highway overpasses. Some have even promised to paint it on the
side of their houses.

The spectacle of these flags snapping in the wind across the country
and even abroad is sure to raise sparks. Traditionalists will be pissed ("A
desecration!") But many may look at the flag and think, "Dammit if that
ain't the truth."

This Fourth of July - Declare Independence from Corporate Rule. The 2nd American Revolution will be Party in the Streets for Life, Liberty, and Happiness.
