JUSTICE FOR ANDY LOPEZ –NO FAITH IN THE BOSSES’ COURTS, COPS, THE FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION OR THE BOSSES DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS!
We hold the family and friends of Andy Lopez in our hearts. While family, friends, and community are dismayed by this blatant racist police murder; the government officials protect killer cops and subject our communities to murderous trigger-happy racists who do not protect and serve the people. The cops are only there to protect and serve the ruling class! Here in the Bay Area our families and youth embrace Andy Lopezand his family as one of our own. His murder is our loss and our experience here in Northern California in the black and brown communities is played out across the nation every 28 hours when cops kill one of our own.
In Vallejo the cops shot Mario Ramirez in his car outside his house. In Oakland Alan Blueford was hunted down by the racist thug officer Masso who shot himself in the leg and got away with the murder! We saw the cops shoot Oscar Grant in the back while unarmed and handcuffed and get away with it! They killed Kenneth Harding Jr. shooting him in the back for trying to ride the MUNI without paying his fare. Rahim Brown was killed by Oakland school cops for having a screwdriver in his car! The vigilante killing of Trayvon Martin enraged the nation and mobilized hundreds of thousands. But the racist killers the “Gang in Blue” still patrol our communities and get away with murder! They must be removed from our streets!
After seeing the cops get off in the killings of Oscar Grant, we saw no prosecutions for the killings of Kenneth Harding or Rahim Brown and George Zimmerman got off after hunting down Trayvon. We join the family and friends of Andy Lopez: WE Demand Justice!
We expect nothing from the bosses the racist cops or their courts; just more of the same. They are just fronts for the politicians and the capitalist-0.1% they all serve! Those institutions exist to keep us down not protect us! Only the multi-racial working class Labor Black & Brown mass mobilizations, united strike actions, self Defense Guards and multi-racial workers’ Tribunals organized by the Labor movement can bring these racist murderers to justice.
Candle light vigils, police oversight commissions, ‘progressive’ politicians alongside the inter-faith religious leaders only serve to keep the community actions limited to the acceptable participation in the very system designed by the capitalists to keep the working class and oppressed community down.
WE NEED OUR OWN INSTITUTIONS TO GAIN JUSTICE!
NO FAITH IN THE BOSSES COURTS! FORM UP LABOR BLACK BROWN SELF DEFENSE GUARDS AND TRIBUNALS! BRING MURDERING RACIST COPS AND VIGILANTES TO JUSTICE! BUILD LABOR BLACK & BROWN STRIKE ACTIONS TO BRING THESE CRIMINALS TO JUSTICE!
TURN THE MOBILIZATION FOR JUSTICE INTO AND ORGANIZING MEETINGS FOR LABOR BLACK & BROWN SELF DEFENSE GUARDS&TRIBUNALS ! BUILD STRIKE ACTIONS AGAINST RACIST MURDERS!
