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…

ALL OUT FOR ERIC GARNER!

Last week Mike Brown’s murderer, the cop Darren Wilson was not indicted by the St. Louis grand jury, for the execution of Mike Brown. Not only is he now a free man, he has become a millionaire because of donations from racists and payments for television interviews. Today, the grand jury in NYC did not indict the cop Daniel Pantaleo who executed Eric Garner in a chokehold. The United States permits and rewards the genocide of Black lives. The New York City branch of the NCP(LC) will be mobilizing to protest these killing.

Fall 2013: The People Strike Back

102113-CUNY-PROTEST-DM-7.jpg.jpegComrade Taffy, one of the two Revolutionary Students Coordinating Committee comrades recently summarily suspended from the City College of New York and the City University of New York, wrote an interesting article on the global context of the CUNY protests:

The nature of CUNY is undemocratic, as a reflection of the class structure of NYC being undemocratic and exploitative (as part of the capitalist system that discriminates against oppressed-nationalities). The entire public education apparatus of NYC discriminates structurally against oppressed-nationality people. Secondary schools are highly segregated, since they are funded by property taxes and in proletarian neighborhoods, this means less funding and resources. Oppressed-nationality proletarians are thus concentrated in secondary schools that are highly militarized and push them into either the ranks of a lumpenproletariat as dropouts or unskilled low wage workers. Those that make it to CUNY do not have a fair and democratic public education system awaiting them. CUNY is increasingly being stratified into the two tier system that is serving a specific social function: it is taking the top performing students from underserved oppressed-nationality proletarian communities, funneling them into the community colleges and training them to be a lower to mid-level managerial class that stands opposed to the interests of its own community. By challenging the entire undemocratic nature of CUNY, students are creating the possibility of building a revolutionary movement that challenges the entire oppressive class structure of NYC. Such a revolutionary movement would take up the call for open admissions and the abolishment of tuition.

However, it is important to emphasize that the subjective possibility of building a revolutionary movement is exactly that: a possibility. In order to actualize that possibility, revolutionaries must be prepared to put politics in command, which means an explicit rejection of the narrow-focus approach that overemphasizes a legalistic approach to negotiating for space. To put politics in command means to mobilize the community and student body to challenge the existing power dynamics that oppress black and brown people and exploit the working class in NYC.
