(en) Statement of solidarity with the black working class in the US by Swedish Anarcho-Syndicalist Youth Federation SUF International committee

Date Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:32:36 +0300


We hereby wish to express our solidarity with the Black working class in the United States, who are currently experiencing heavy repression against their long struggle for social justice. ---- For far too long racism has been used by the bourgeoisie to divide the working class, with the violence exercised by the American police force as a cruel example of just how brutal it is in its implementation. Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, and Philando Castile are just a few of the hundreds of Black Americans whose lives have been taken in recent years. So far, in 2016 alone, more than 500 Black people have been murdered by the American police. 500 citizens killed by the state that claims to protect them, with less than a handful of police officers facing any repercussions.

Additionally, the people killed are constantly being dehumanized and demonized by the liberal media in order to maintain the system of racial oppression, in which the Black community is suffering. The victims of police violence are portrayed as dangerous or unreliable, with any possible previous crimes or even unflattering photographs being dug up and used in reporting. State violence is being either neglected, de-contextualized, or justified by bourgeois media. State and Capital, working intimately together on the expense of Black lives.

The movement that has risen up against these brutal injustices, the Black Lives Matter movement, has our sincere support. We hope that one day, the American Black working class will be free of the burden that racism puts upon them, as well as from the economic system in which it thrives. No justice, no peace.

In solidarity,

The International Committee of the Swedish Anarcho-Syndicalist Youth Federation http://www.suf.cc
