Various factions of Berkeley protestors have banded together to combine their respective causes under the blanket “Anti-War” banner in an all-purpose protest movement that promises to attract far more attention than any one group could muster on its own.
“For so many years, we thought activism in Berkeley was dead,” explained protest organizer Cole Gutierrez. “It turns out, there were just never enough people pissed off about just one thing.”
United under the Anti-War banner are activists decrying Muslim defamation and U.S. foreign policy, as well as those advocating Socialist revolution, the abolishment of the death penalty, and the reinstatement of affirmative action, along with countless other assorted left-wing causes. Many individuals in the Anti-War movement are also believed to oppose America’s recently-declared “war on terrorism,” though details on this point are unclear.
