                  Closing Plenary - Sunday Afternoon

Debate and vote on key plans for joint resistance including our proposal to
make OCTOBER 96 A NATIONAL MONTH OF RESISTANCE! When we look at what has
compelled our various protests, we find that IT'S ALL ONE ATTACK!

Refuse & Resist! was founded in 1987 in response to a call signed by 18
well-known political and cultural resisters including Emile de Antonio,
Dennis Brutus, Abbie Hoffman, Clark Kissinger, Bill Kunstler, Conrad Lynn,
Sonia Sanchez, and Leonard Weinglass. This stirring call was eventually
signed by over 4,000 people from
Nobel laureates to housing project tenants.

The purpose of Refuse & Resist! has been to build a nation-wide climate and
culture of resistance. Our practice has been to speak out, to act, and to
refuse to be complicit. R&R was the first national organization to call for
mass defense of abortion clinics, the first national organization to call on
troops to refuse to serve in the Gulf War, and the first national
organization to come to the defense of the LA4 and the thousands
arrested in the 1992 Los Angeles Rebellion.

It's all one attack! The resurgent racism, the current war on women, the
concentration camps for immigrants, the censorship of the arts, the police
state measures, gay bashing, and compulsory patriotism. One organization says
NO to the WHOLE package: Refuse & Resist! It's time to go on the offense with
a movement that is
more than fragmented responses. Join Refuse & Resist!
