Letter to nyc comrades and friends from LKE.

: lorenzo

Hello Miranda and Friends:

First of all, thank you for your continued support of the Chattanooga 3. We

wish we could be there for your Cinco De Mayo party. In fact, I have not

visited NYC for any activist event for quite sometime, so maybe you can

arrange something later. I have not gotten a chance at all to visit the

BlackOut Books Anarchist bookstore there.

We have said so much about the Chattanooga 3 case over the last two years,

about its importance as a harbinger of government repression to silence

critics of the government. Now you don't have to engage in street fighting,

"looting" or other protests to be arrested and jailed for six months in

prison. A nonviolent protest against the police and the state can now get

you thrown into jail for six months. The Chattanooga 3 case, and the use of

the disruption laws", prefigured the repression of the youth in Seattle,

Washington, D.C. and the demonstrations at the national political

conventions last Spring and Summer in Philadelphia and Los Angeles, where

thousands were arrested under similar laws, which had never or rarely been

used before that time. Look at how the racist, police state government in

Cincinnati has used martial law and low intensity paramilitary police

warfare to silence protest in Cincinnati. We must understand that there are

police death squads in America, and 500-1,000 people are killed each year by


The white racist government down in Tennessee is based on Ku Klux Klan

terror, and now the cops are doing all the killing that Klansmen used to do.

The blue uniform has replaced the Klan's white robes, but the intent of

using racist violence to beat down the Black and poor populations, and

silence all criticism and progressive organizing is still the same. The

answer is that we must resist the cop/political government by any means

necessary. Street fighting, demonstrations, dual power, strikes, boycotts,

and other tactics to cripple them are all legitimate. Freedom by any means

necessary. They have no legitimacy, but what we give them. Love and peace to

all those who resist.
