Anonymous Message to San Francisco for MillionMaskMarch

Good afternoon San Francisco.

Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as anyone. But in the spirit of commemoration, whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death, or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday.

I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives, to sit down, and have a little chat. There are, of course, those who do not wish us to speak. I suspect, even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the police baton may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to protest, to think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors, a growing police state, and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity to an unjust pseudo-democracy, and soliciting your submission to the corporate elite. How did this happen?

You might ask. Who is to blame? Well, certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again, truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War, Russia, China, terrorists, Isis, Ebola, disease. There were a myriad of problems they bombarded you with, which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of logic and your common sense. Just as they planned, fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to your government, and a Saviour on high, President Barack Obama. He promised you order, he promised you peace, he promised to rein in Wall Street and to bring back the middle class, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Anonymous and the Occupy movement sought to end that silence. They took over public space, created somewhere for everyone to discuss the pressing issues of inequality, to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you’ve seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you, then I would suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked.

But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me today, outside City Hall, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot.
