Points of Orientation on Righteous Rebellions

People in Ferguson have repeatedly stood up and righteously rebelled. They have refused to back down in the face of dogs, tear gas, guns, and tanks. At a time when the powers counterattack through absolutely irrelevant slanders against Michael Brown and honeyed words from Ron Johnson, this struggle must not die down.

Two guidelines on going forward:

1) If people do not rebel against such oppression and repression, they can only expect things to get worse and their lives to become more unbearable. When people in positions of power tell you not to protest and rebel, they are part of the problem, not the solution.

2) Any action should be evaluated by what it contributes to the righteous rebellion against injustice. That is the standard. Telling people to stop rebelling does not contribute to ending such outrages and injustices, it undermines the fight against them.

stoppatriarchy:

On August 13th, the Abortion Rights Freedom Riders took the resistance to a whole other level. 11 people were arrested, for putting our bodies on the line, committing a civil disobedience in front of Gov. Rick Perry’s mansion, because women’s lives and futures are at stake in this abortion rights emergency and we REFUSE to sit by as women are slammed back. 
Stop Patriarchy firmly holds that people everywhere can and need to step up. 
We are determined to fight this through. We were brutally arrested, and in jail we were separated and harassed, but we will NOT be cowed. 
August 25-September 1st we are calling for a national week of defiance. This week needs to model the kind of uncompromising resistance it is going to take to defeat this assault on women’s lives. Things like what we did a few days ago, and much more.

Members of the NYC Revolution Club leading a rally and march of hundreds from Union Square to Times Square, in response to the police murder of Michael Brown. IT’S RIGHT TO RESIST!

Harlem residents together with the NYC Rev Club and members of the Stop Mass Incarceration and others, held a press conference today at the Harlem State Office Building, in the middle of a raging storm, which was NO match for the rage of the people who came together to speak out and stand up against this vicious assault by the police. Full report coming soon. Stay tuned. 

This past Sunday’s emergency meeting and speak out on the military style police raid in Harlem which left dozens of people deeply disturbed and outraged. Many parents of those arrested and others came out and spoke about their experiences being terrorized by the NYPD, not only with this raid, but on a constant basis. People with the Stop Mass Incarceration Network and the Revolution Club spoke with people on how we are standing up against this outrage as a part of standing up to Mass Incarceration and the criminalization of whole sections of society which is completely illegitimate and intolerable!

Come out to the speak out and rally THIS FRIDAY! 125th and Adam Clayton Powell. Stand together with those this police raid has directly affected and others who are outraged that these kinds of unjust things go on. This system has no place for these whole sections of society… but the Revolution DOES!

"All the police and helicopters, radios popping… I thought there was a terrorist attack or something," a resident of one of the projects told Revolution that afternoon. "Then when I saw what was happening… I realized it was terrorism. The police was terrorizing the neighborhood!"

NYC Rev Club and others with the movement for revolution, standing up against the outrageous, military style police raid at Grant Homes in Harlem, with 400 police officers and helicopters overhead, arresting 40 people ages 15-30 on ‘gang related’ offenses. Whether or not all these people were guilty of these crimes, this is a CRIMINAL system that is not meant to actually help the people in these conditions. This system is not meant to meet their basic needs, so for those who do what they have to to survive, they are massively incarcerated and treated as less than human. We in the movement for revolution say NO MORE! We need to bring in masses of people to stand up against these outrages and build up the strength to beat these monsters, through revolution and nothing less!
Read the article published by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network condemning these actions taken by police.
