We are calling for ALL community members and anti-fascists around the area to come stand together against the hate and bigotry that the organizers of "anti-sharia" rally are bringing to our community by organizing their event. Last similar rally in San Bernardino attracted neo-nazis, racists and xenophobes who used the tragic terrorist attack in San Bernardino as an excuse to express hate against all muslisms and to physically assault local population and activists who stood against them. We will defend our community by whatever means necessary!
We encourage attendees to wear masks, which is absolutely legal in California, as the opposition tends to take photos of us and post them on far-right websites. This is also done to avoid the repression of activists by the police state.
About Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement:
The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement is a political movement dedicated to freeing people from bondage and building resistance in the United States. We situate our political movement in the context of the abolitionist struggle against slavery and continue in the tradition, from Nat Turner to the Black Liberation Movement. We believe the Civil War never resolved the foundational problems in this country and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. Lastly, as revolutionary anarchists, the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, the perpetrators of oppression. The revolutionary movement in the US today is at a cross roads, as fascist movements are expanding, and the state becomes increasingly authoritarian. The Rojava Revolution, in northern Syria, provides us with a model for revolution today with its foundation in communal and council based political organization and militant defense.
