Crazy Hairy Ants Occupy Miami
New Times has breaking news, a rare look into the psychological landscape of these ants, through the release of this exclusive manifesto:
As we gather in masses of ant solidarity to express a feeling of injustice and rage, we must not lose sight of our mission: to destroy, pollute, bombard, and overrun Miami. All ants who feel wronged by the corporate exterminators of the world (Orkin, Terminex) please realize, dear ant comrades, we are your allies. As one huge colony, united, we acknowledge the reality: the destruction of the human race requires the cooperation of our members; our ant system must protect our ant rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to ant colonies to protect our rights, and those of our neighbors.
A democratic ant-government derives its power from the madness of the colony. Corporations do not seek permission to kill and exterminate our colonies. They do so at their will, with an insatiable and atomic ruthlessness. These corporate exterminators place profit over ants, self-interest over justice and murder over co-existence. We have frantically assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.
Corporations have destroyed our anthills through a barbaric foreclosure process, despite not owning nor even constructing the original property. They have taken cash solicitations from humans with impunity, and get rich off the holocaust of our colonies.
They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination; they have poisoned our food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization. They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless of our ant brothers and sisters, and actively hide these practices.
Corporate pesticides like Bonide continuously strip us of the right to exist.
They have outsource labor to idiot exterminators who's mere existence seems to mock our incredible ant work ethic. They've influenced the masses to believe ants are horrible critters and need to be destroyed, while spending millions of dollars on this propaganda, transforming our privacy into a commodity. They've used the military and police force to prevent the freedom of the ant. They determine ant policy, despite the catastrophic failures the policies have produced and continue to produce.
Corporate pesticides like Raid have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them. They continue to block alternate forms of extermination to keep us dependent on chemicals. They block the funding necessary for us to achieve a level of co-existence. Extermination is not the only option. We deserve a chance to live. And for denying that chance, we are mad, and this madness will manifest itself in horrific ways.
Corporate pesticides like Ortho have purposely covered up accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive poisonous ingredients in pursuit of profit. They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media. We are not to be feared, but admired. We can carry our weight and then-some, and now we hurl it against those corporations who have perpetuated these heinous crimes against our existence.
To the ants of the world, exercise your right to assemble, occupy public space, and create a process to address these problems we face. Join us and make your voices heard!
