The cold-blooded racist police murders of Eric Garner and Michael Brown were not isolated events; the cops killed them, and continue to target black workers and youth because the vicious racist ruling class needs to terrorize us into accepting a future of poverty and imperialist war. We don’t accept it!
We don’t accept a life where being black means you can be gunned down at any moment with little to no consequence. We don’t accept a system where the lives of Shantel Davis, Kyam Livingston, Kimani Gray, Eric Garner, Rhamarley Graham, and Michael Brown mean nothing to these killer kkkops; this system doesn’t deserve to exist! We call on everyone to build support for the rebellion started in Ferguson, at your schools, at work, in your churches and in your unions.
The anti-racist rebellion in Ferguson shows us that when push comes to shove, the racist police are no match for a united and fighting working class. Lead mostly by unemployed youth, the rebels have basically foiled the Ferguson and St. Louis County police and the black State Police Captain; they broke the curfew and forced the Governor to call out the National Guard – showing us all what’s possible when workers fight back! Not only did they stand up to tanks, tear gas and riot cops, but they defied Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama, who all rushed to put out the fire. We have a lot to learn from them.
Politicians, preachers, cops and the media all labeled the militant youth everything but what they are — they are rebels that lead a powerful uprising; they are not looters, rioters or misguided. On the whole the youth targeted the racist bosses and their goons.
The rebels broke capitalist laws, the same laws which protect mass murderers that are responsible for millions of deaths from racist profit wars, global drug cartels, mass poverty and unemployment. These gangsters in suits walk free, run businesses, command armies and hold government power. The ruling class tries to paint blacks, Latinos and the immigrant working-class as criminals, but in reality, it is bosses who are the enemies, the real criminals, closing hospitals and killing patients as well as workers and children in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.
Only a revolutionary communist society where the working class has power can rid the world of racist killer kkkops. The capitalist courts encourage and tolerate cops who murder black, Latino and immigrant workers. Meanwhile, five million black and Latino workers and youth are forced into the criminal injustice system, either imprisoned, on probation or on parole. Seventy percent of the 2.4 million in U.S. prisons are black and Latino. And if cops do get punished it’s a slap on the wrist.
Join and build the revolutionary communist Progressive Labor Party (PLP) and build an international multi-racial movement to crush racism from New York City to Ferguson to Gaza with armed revolution!
The growth of a fighting PLP is the only way to guarantee that the bosses won’t get away with racist police murder. No matter how long it takes, PLP will eventually lead the working class to smash the bosses’ cops and courts and establish a communist society worthy of every worker struck down by capitalism worldwide.
