Rebellion is the Answer to Racist Police Murder

First Ferguson. Now Baltimore. It was a rebellion. Not a riot. Politicians, preachers, cops and the media all labeled the militant youth everything but what they are — rebels that have lead a powerful and inspiring uprising. On the whole, the youth targeted the racist bosses and their goons.

The anti-racist rebellion shows us that when push comes to shove, the racist police are no match for a united and fighting working class. Youth are fighting against tear gas, The National Guard, and over 7,000 kkkops, all while defying the orders of the mayor and other capitalist officials. We have a lot to learn from them.
The cold-blooded racist police murder of Freddie Gray was not an isolated event; 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 refuse to 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 Tyrone West, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray, Shantel Davis, Kyam Livingston, Kimani Gray, Eric Garner, and Rhamarley Graham mean nothing to these killer kkkops! There are too many names! This system doesn’t deserve to exist! The bosses call for “bringing order” and “life back to normal.” This “normal” is racism in our schools, in hospital, and in the streets! A rebellion was long coming! To anti-racists everywhere — protest in solidarity with the rebellion started in Baltimore at your schools, at work, in your churches, unions, and in your neighborhoods.

The rebels broke capitalist laws, the same laws that 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. The real criminal is this racist system. The bosses close hospitals, schools, and keep people unemployed. They also murder workers and children in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Pakistan for oil.

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, Latin and immigrant workers. Meanwhile, five million Black and Latin 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 Latin. 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! Progressive Labor Party is a revolutionary communist party dedicated to eliminating capitalism with communist revolution as the only way to end imperialism, terrorism, racism, sexism, and class inequality.

The growth of a fighting PLP is the only way to guarantee that the bosses won’t get away with racist police murder. PLP fights to 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.

Join us as we march on May 2 against this racist system and celebrate the militancy of the rebels in Baltimore and Ferguson. Celebrate the working class’s history to overcome divisions the bosses put in our way, to fight back, and our potential to win the war against capitalism! March for a communist world!

Protesters Battle the KKKops In Ferguson

The Progressive Labor Party salutes the working class in Ferguson who engaged in armed struggle with the police. The racist ruling class tried to fool the primarily Black working class by putting a Black police officer in charge, but the appearance did not change the essence of racism at the heart of capitalism. As more and more evidence comes out, it appears much clearer that Michael Brown was shot execution style while holding his hands aloft. It appears more and more likely that the KKKops made up a story and tried to justify their murder of a young member of the working class.

Molotov cocktails were used against the police who are trying to impose a curfew on the working class. The fascist ruling class only allows free speech when it’s hate speech or pushes one of their rotten ideologies. When it’s angry Black workers demanding an end to the fascist conditions they’ve been exploited under for centuries, the ruling class takes off its kid gloves and unleashes the kind of hell they’re used to unleashing in the rest of the world. The kind of brutality they are able to unleash on any part of the working class as part of their imperialistic drive allows them to further brutalize their home ruling class.

The national guard called to the border in Texas against undocumented mostly children fleeing the conditions US capitalism created in South and Central America is also the national guard called into Missouri against the Black workers who have had enough. Basta Ya! Enough is enough in any language. It is about time the working class fought back against the violence of the state with armed struggle. As many a protester shouted, “they’ve got guns and we’ve got guns.” The ruling class was terrified because many young men were willing to die that night fighting against the racist injustice of capitalism.

Regardless of whether or not this working class violence against the state brings the racist police officer Wilson to some kind of discipline or reprimand, it won’t change the racist nature of the capitalist system. It will be only a matter of time before the KKKops kill another young black working class teenager. PLP wants to eradicate racism, and in order to do so, we must eradicate capitalism. The police, the courts, and the KKK are all a part of capitalism, and reforming it by indicting and disciplining one police officer, though it is a minor victory, will not fundamentally change the nature of the capitalist system.

The ruling class slipped their fascist hand in Missouri. They showed us workers what we can expect when we even peacefully use our first amendment guaranteed right to peacefully assemble — in a scene right out of Falluja, heavily armed KKKops masquerading as combat troops attacked and restored the order of capitalism. This is a clear reminder that the only rights the working class have under capitalism is what we are able to force the ruling class to give us. This is why we need state power. The working class needs to organize the PLP in Missouri so these gains and armed struggle are not lost. How great would it be if every time a racist pig gunned down a worker, an uprising occurred that none of the bosses’ stooges, not Sharpton nor pastors, could pacify. Justice will be served when the KKKop that killed that young man is turned over to the working class. By building PLP, and eventually a Communist revolution to put the working class into state power, justice will finally be served because there will no longer be capitalists protecting their murderous thugs in blue.
