How many political activists today even know that the Guerrilla Art Action Group even existed?! Not enuf, in my as-usual bombastic opinion. Of course, there's always the 'danger' that anything done in resistance to the ultra-conformist perpetual WAR-MACHINE of the US excuse-for-culture will be labeled by fatalists & shit-heads as "pointless" & "ineffectual" but, considering that what most of these so-called 'critics' do themselves is.. well, something so close to precariously NOTHING that we might just have to break out the mirror & check to see if they're still breathing (no point in checking if they're THINKING!), who gives a shit what diarrhea comes out of their mouths, eh? Keep on keepin' on. & that's exactly what GAAG did. These people ferociously gnawed away at the cultural vacuum time & time again. EG: on November 18, 1969 they performed a dramatic guerrilla action at the Museum of Modern Art to demand the disconnection between sd museum & the war-mongering Rockefellers. & that's just one example. Some people might think that such actions are just farts in the wind but I think they chip away at MAMMON one death-dealing image at a time & I commend them for it. Anarchists? GAAG might not've been anarchists but, still, reading about them is reading about a part of yr own history that might just prove to be more important than you think.
