Stopping War at the Point of Production


Thursday, December 18, 2008, 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. If you could actually take action that would impact the U.S. war effort in a tangible way, would you?

Hidden away in Northwest Missouri, the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant is one of the most integral mechanisms of the U.S. war machine. Producing over 90% of all small arms ammunition for the U.S. Military, Lake City is a linchpin in the U.S. war effort in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries.

In March of 2009, opponents of war and militarism are planning for the first of what will become several targeted disruptions of Lake City's ability to maintain the war and occupation.

Disrupt! Lake City is a grouping of anarchists, anti-capitalists, and anti-war organizers working to end war and military occupation. Members of DLC will be touring the country during the winter of 2008 to build momentum for this campaign.

Presenter and Disrupt! Lake City organizer Dave Strano has been actively organizing within the North American Anarchist movement since the U.S. invasion of Kosovo in 1999. He helped organize the North American Anarchist Gathering in 2002, an event that drew over 600 anarchists from around the country for the first continental anarchist conference following the events of September 11, 2001. Dave was a founding member of the Lawrence Anarchist Black Cross and Kansas Mutual Aid, two organizations working for prison abolition. Currently, he focuses his time on organizing in white working class communities against war, militarism, racism, and white supremacy.
