New Anarchist People of Color Caucus Forming

A new People of Color Caucus, affiliated with the Anarchist Black Cross 
Federation, is in the midst of forming and welcomes the input and 
participation of anarchist people of color everywhere.

Tentatively, the objectives of the People of Color Caucus are:
-	To give a place for people of color in the anarchist movement and 
revolutionaries of color generally to strategize, network and organize 
solutions relating to their history, experiences and communities.
-	To strive for and build principled unity among all our comrades in the 
struggle for freedom, autonomy, self-determination and revolution.
-	To address the issues faced by people of color, such.as criminalization, 
incarceration, colonialism, white supremacy and the counterinsurgency we 
face and relate such with the struggle for freedom for Political Prisoners 
and Prisoners of War.
-	To give support of and solidarity to the thousands of people of color, 
including prison organizers and "politicized" prisoners, who are captives 
of a system built on centuries of oppression.

Membership to the People of Color Caucus is open, but we ask for everyone 
to respect the importance of people of color organizing revolutionary 
solutions from their own perspectives and with solutions relating to their 
respective communities. Unquestionably, people of color have struggled with 
500 years of exploitation, and hence our experiences relating to oppression 
are qualitatively different. We encourage people of European descent to 
form study groups and discuss ways to confront white supremacy and skin 
privilege.

ABCF member groups receive complimentary copies of the Caucus' publication 
"Break It Down," while others are provided subscriptions on a sliding 
scale, based on need. We ask all who can afford it to at least contribute 
stamps to the effort.
