El Plan de Carson
NOTE: This is a reproduction
of a flyer that I found fastened to my doorknob with a rubber band,
along with a grocery ad, three offers to cut the lawn, two to put
on a new roof and five pizza delivery ads. It's the first I've heard
of the CCCC, and to tell the truth, I'm not really sure where they
are coming from. The title seems a deliberate reference to the Plan
de Ayala, the document drafted by Emiliano Zapata and his compa¤eros;
the style is clearly imitative of the famous dispatches of Subcommandante
Marcos from "the jungles of southeast Mexico"; and, if I'm not mistaken,
a lot of the text comes from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. We will all
look forward to seeing how the revolution develops in Carson. --pr
To the people of Carson:

Brothers and sisters:

everywhere. End it now.
From the lowlands of southern Los Angeles County,
Clandestine Coordinating Committee of Carson--general command
The following plan provisions are demanded by Bolsa de Pulgas, official
cat of the CCCC. They are not endorsed by the full committee since
many of us feel that although they represent laudable ideals, they
go too far.
1. NO SHORT GRASS! Not only are closely cropped lawns an ecological
disaster, they also deprive cats and other indigenous animals of lurking
habitat. We consider the preponderance of closely cropped lawns an
example of cultural genocide. LET IT GROW!
2. DOORS ALWAYS OPEN! Just as the committee at large demands open
international borders that recognize the personal right of free travel,
we demand that all doors be left ajar to allow cats free passage.
NO CFZs (cat free zones)!
3. FOOD ON DEMAND! No human shall ignore a cat's request for food.
If said cat is bored with the food offered, fresh cans will be opened
until a satisfactory flavor is presented. You guys said it above:
EVERYTHING FOR EVERYONE (that includes us)!
