With the midterm elections having just passed on November 6th, everyone’s attention is on the electoral system. As usual, people are dazzled by false promises and by big claims made by regular people who claim to be capable of solving society’s problems. This election cycle was particularly disgusting, using migrants and black victims of police violence as political capital. The entire spectacle of this electoral charade rests on the graveyards of millions of murdered souls which props up this system.
The colonial capitalist enterprise known as the United States only came into existence through ruthless genocide and slavery. Every political platform is situated in this reality, standing on the graves of millions of slaughtered indigenous people, black people, the poor and economically disenfranchised, women and queer people killed and marginalized in order to uphold patriarchy, and the millions who have died through imperialist war.
On this election day, as this country teeters on the brink of civil war, we chose to take an action against the democratic system. In the early morning hours we targeted the Brooklyn Board of Elections office, splattering it’s windows with symbolic blood. Our only regret is that we couldn’t do more. We dedicate this action to all those who lost their lives from the savagery of capitalism and the state; to the indigenous tribes, to the Ferguson rebels, to Korryn Gaines, to Mikhail Zhlobitsky, the martyrs of Rojava, and all other comrades who have been taken from us. This is for you.
For anarchy and rebellion
For total decolonization and destruction of the current social order
For a free and livable world
