Pack the Court Rooms! Defend RSCC Comrades Against Police Repression!

Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee

10448404_783147905054284_7209045917051066408_o More than 100 protesters were arrested in tonight’s crackdown, including three RSCC comrades. [Not the actual picture] Three RSCC comrades were specifically targeted and brutally arrested last night, Wednesday, April 29, as they took the streets once again to protest the outright genocide being committed against Black people at the hands of the police all over the country.

Like in Baltimore, the people in NYC congregated and decided to take the streets to condemn state violence they experience in their communities. But this time, the pigs decided to crack down on protestors proving once again the very nature of the white supremacist state under which we all live. All over the city, over 100 protesters were arrested.

The state is scared of the way the movement against police killings of our people has revealed that their true purpose is to maintain the peace for the ruling class…

National Democratic Front of the Philippines – NDFP condemns illegal arrest of NDFP Consultants Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria

National Democratic Front - Philippines

National Democratic Front – Philippines

The bad faith of the pro-imperialist government in the Philippines continues:

The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) condemns in the strongest terms the illegal arrest of Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria by the Aquino regime’s security forces this afternoon in Carcar, Cebu.
[…]
The NDFP vigorously demands that Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Austria be immediately and unconditionally released.

This latest flagrant violation of the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees by the Aquino regime, in addition to so many other gross violations of the JASIG, most seriously prejudices the GPH-NDFP peace negotiations.

Anti-Petraeus protesters: Heroes of the people!

The arrest during a police riot of members of the Ad-Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY and their subsequent indictment comes as no surprise – much less to themselves. It is what the repressive capitalist regimes everywhere do: try to destroy the voices of the people with violence and repression, while claiming that there is a right for free speech – when this right is only extended to those ideas and actions which the regime determines are acceptable. They are illusions and will remain illusions as long as those in power represent the exploiters and the oppressors.  As we said earlier, confronting war criminals with protests is not only right, but vital to develop the forces of struggle for freedom.

Fighting imperialism in the belly of the beast is not only possible, but necessary. These young people show to all of us that that no matter the repression, no matter the lies, no matter the police state, dignity and humanity shall overcome.  One wonders why the same forces so keen on supporting “revolutions” elsewhere, are silent and inactive about doing it at home. We need to emulate and publicize their example – in a time when the imperialist war drums beat loud, it is up for those who believe in a better world to stand up and confront the enemies of the people.  It is incredible that almost the entire leftist and far left press is silent about this, while the far-right and reactionary media gives all the attention in the world.

These young people are heroes of the people – their example a shinning one, their sacrifice worthy of emulation and admiration – not of silence and reproach.

EVERY CLASS DAVID! CUNY IS NOT A WAR COLLEGE!

Here is the video of how vigorous protest turned into a police riot:

Some pictures of our heroes in court, examples of dignity and courage:
