Antifa has created a new workshop called “Our Enemies in Blue” which has openly called for violent action against law enforcement. The open call is taking place among many various Antifa websites.
The groups press release reveals much more insight into this move…
The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement has sought since its inception to spread nationwide, and create international connections to further the cause of abolitionism and revolutionary anarchism. Today, August 20, 2017, we are proud to announce the formation of the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement – Philadelphia Branch (RAM Philly). With the growth of each new branch we inch ever closer to the day when we can realize our revolutionary aspirations, live in a world of true freedom, and decisively eradicate the abhorrence of 21st century slavery.
The struggle in the US seems like an unrelenting weight being pushed down on revolutionary forces, but that same force has been bearing down on criminalized communities for decades with no reprieve. Mosques are being ruthlessly bombed, state agencies and vigilante groups are deporting Latino people with relentless vigor, LGBTQ people are being battered, and the destruction of black life continues unabated as millions languish in the plantations of the modern day slave system.
Far Left Watch highlighted the many wild goals that RAM seeks to carry out, from the “Abolition of Gender” to the “Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy.” Much of this borrows from the leftist guerilla movement known as the Rojava Revolution in northern Syria, who are currently involved in battling ISIS.
The “Our Enemies in Blue” workshops specifically deal with how to handle police during a violent altercation. The Daily Wire has noted several times the media downplayed Antifa violence or celebrated them. At the Washington Post, historian Mark Bray of Dartmouth University championed the group’s “willingness to physically defend themselves and others from white supremacist violence.”
