Call For a Week of Action Against Symbols of White Supremacy: May 12-18th
Filed under: Anarchist Movement, Announcement, US, White Supremacy
Call from Jailhouse Lawyers Speak and endorsed by the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement for a week of action against the symbols of white supremacy.
The prison system and every police department are two sides of the same white supremacist coin. The struggle against slavery is paramount, and the destruction of white supremacy and all of its appendages is fundamental. The prison system and the police are the backbone of this system.
Therefore, we are proud to endorse Jailhouse Lawyers Speak #Fuck12, #Burn12Flag, week of action: May 12th – 18th
Please join us in this week of action!
The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement is a political movement dedicated to freeing people from bondage and building resistance in the United States. We situate our political movement in the context of the abolitionist struggle against slavery and continue in the tradition, from Nat Turner to the Black Liberation Movement. We believe the Civil War was never resolved and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. Lastly, as revolutionary anarchists, the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, the perpetrators of oppression. The revolutionary movement in the US today is at a cross roads, as fascist movements are expanding, and the state becomes increasingly authoritarian. The Rojava Revolution, in northern Syria, provides us with a model for revolution today with its foundation in communal and council based political organization and militant defense.
