Condemnation of the Fascist Capture of Migrants in New Mexico

Response from the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) on the recent far-Right militia attacks on migrants at the border.

Fascists thugs calling themselves the United Constitutional Patriots have been rounding up migrants in New Mexico at gunpoint, harassing and intimidating them before handing them over to the fascist thugs who call themselves Border Patrol. These people traveled through the night to seek asylum, many were fleeing circumstances created by the very state that they hoped might now protect them, only to be met with violence.

The ways in which the US government not only actively encourages, but uses, such violence is seldom as obvious as it is in this circumstance. The UCP thugs used social media to brag about their viciousness. While countless revolutionaries, activists, and fighters for freedom have been targeted and harassed by the State, and died under questionable circumstances, a spokesman for the UCP is currently giving phone interviews to journalists, declaring his group’s actions “citizens’ arrests” and openly bragging that Border Patrol has never once ordered his group to stand down.

The tremendous horror and suffering of the migrants is a call to all those fighting for liberation. RAM stands in solidarity with all migrants trapped at imposed borders around the world, subject to violence from militaries, police, and fascists all at once. We call upon revolutionaries worldwide to stand up in the face of this violence, regardless of the source, as these are all arms of the same oppressive entity designed to control and exploit us. We will stand side by side with all people feeling the brunt of white supremacy, and chain ourselves to them until we are successful in our collective liberation.

We will fight until the horrors of nationalists are buried under the stones of the walls they sought to build!

Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement

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.
