Why target the White House 

    On May 10, The Electronic Disturbance Theater urges people of good conscience to return to the electronic stage for Act One of an ongoing World Wide Web of Electronic Civil Disobedience to Stop the War in Mexico! 

    On April 10, in response to increasing low-intensity warfare against indigenous peoples in Mexico, simultaneous and collective action of people all over the world flooded Mexican President Zedillo's web site, sporadically blocking access. 

    Since then, more indigenous communities in Mexico have been attacked by the State sanctioned violence of the military, police, and paramilitary groups. While more international human rights observers have been deported. 

    On April 10, we pointed our web browsers at President Zedillo's homepage. On May 10 we will point our browsers north, to President Clinton's White House web site. The Yale educated Zedillo does not act alone, but in concert with Washington. 

    In the 1990s, and especially since January 1, 1994, U.S. military, intelligence, and law enforcement agencies, with full support of Mexico's PRI government, have substantially increased their role in the Mexico's internal affairs

    U.S. President Clinton, as commander-in-chief of the military in the United States, holds ultimate responsibility for the enforcement of this interventionist policy in Mexico. For these reasons, the White House web site is an appropriate target for Act One of the World Wide Web of Electronic Civil Disobedience.
