Socialism 2002 in Conflict with Anarchy!

Isn't it funny how events like the Socialism 2002 thingy in Chicago always conflict with direct actions like those to be held in Madison, WI the same week?
SOCIALISM 2002:
Another World Is Possible, Fight for Socialism

*Chicago, June 13-16, Congress Plaza Hotel*

directly conflicts with the direct action below:

RESIST the US Conference of Mayors!
                       We must stop business as usual!
   contact us: resist_the_mayors (at) yahoo.com and info (at) resist-the-mayors.org
 WHEN: June 13 to 18, 2002
 WHERE: Beautiful Madison, WI
 What: We are planning a mass demonstration and a number of direct actions
 that will wake people up to the issues important in our communities. And
 what better place than the Midwest? This is a regional and national CALL TO
 ACTION! for folks all throughout the Midwest and beyond to join in this
 opportunity to confront the powerful elite.

 Traveling to the G8 or can't get across the border? Stop on through Madison
 to join the fun!

 Going to the North American Anarchist Gathering in Kansas? Pay us a visit
 on your way home!

 WHY: We see the US Conference of Mayors as an extension of the global
 resistance against neo-liberalism (i.e.. global corporate culture) and
 war-mongering that has exploded over the past few years. The fight here is
 just as important as the fight against the WTO, IMF/World Bank, WEF, etc.
 The same corporate powers that push globalization are fighting for access
 to our local governments to push their agendas at home and abroad, and the
 US Conference of Mayors is the perfect place to do it. As we further our
 bloodlust (oil lust) around the world it is time to connect this war to our
 communities and it's leaders. Because, as Che said, we are in the belly of
 the beast.

 We see this as a struggle against the oppressive internal forces of the US
 that seek to brutalize and subjugate people, communities and the
 environment. For too long, the people of the US have stood by and let this
 beast run rampant. We must radicalize our movements and start to fight
 corporate control of our lives locally in Madison, in Wisconsin, in the
 Midwest and in the US as a whole.

 WHEN: June 13 to 18, 2002

 WHERE: Beautiful Madison, WI
