Liberté pour les emprisonnéEs du Black Riders Liberation Party!

Ce clip de Public Enemy aide à comprendre le contexte de la lutte organisée par les communautés noirs contre le racisme aux États-Unis. Pendant que les gang de rues entredéchireraient les communautés noirs, le racisme continue toujours ses attaques. C'est à ce moment qu'intervienent les organsiations révolutionnaires de libération noir soit le New Black Panther Party et le Black Riders Liberation Party né en 2006 afin d'unir ces communautés dans un projet de libération collective clairement anti-capitaliste où la libération du style hip-hop fait entre autre parti du programme. Comme il est possible de le lire ci-dessous le groupe BRLP est la cible de répression et appel les personnes qui adhèrent à l'anarchisme, au communisme, à l'anti-autoritarisme, à l'anti-fascisme, l'anti-imperialisme ("and all the others -isms") à supporter la libération des prisonniers du BRLP.

Qu'est-ce que le Black Riders Liberation Party?

Qu'est-ce que le Black Panther Party?

Three leading members of the Black Riders Liberation Party, General T.A.C.O. (Taking All Capitalists Out), Comrades Stress and Aryana Shakur, have been indicted and arrested on charges of a conspiracy to possess automatic weapons and attempted possession of a machine gun in a b.s. set-up and entrapment case.

They are being held on bail of half a million for Aryana to a million dollars apiece for T.A.C.O. and Stress. Despite the heavy bail and serious charges - the DA is alleging the Riders were going to enter and shoot up various LAPD stations but has brought no such charges, using only the unsubstantiated allegation as the basis for justifying the raids, undercover cops and surveillance directed at the BRLP - neither the DA nor the LAPD has made any public statements about the case.

This reflects the weak and baseless nature of their case, but also their attempt to disrupt the party by locking up its leaders, attempting to bury them in prison without arousing a public clamor or base of support for the BRLP. It is vital that we present a strong, community-based opposition to these nefarious efforts by the LAPD and District Attorney's office to criminalize Black youth and revolutionary politics.
The DA sought and obtained a gang enhancement on the charges, even though the undercover officer testified under cross-examination that the BRLP in fact claimed no territory, bore no identifying gang-style tattoos, and in fact resembled the Black Panther Party!

The cop acknowledged under oath that the Black Riders were proud Africans, advocates for Black unity and avowed communists! This testimony makes clear the political nature of the charges and the whole case.

Although the BRLP have been the targets of police harassment and set-ups for their entire 10-year history, the recent series of busts and high-power raids have taken place in the context of the BRLP popularizing the case of the San Francisco 8 - Black Panther Party members and associates - at a street level in Los Angeles, as well as leading Black resistance and building Black-Brown unity against the racist Minutemen.

Combined with the effectiveness of their "Watch-a-Pig" programs and their peace-making efforts and political education with Bloods and Crips street organization members, these successes brought the BRLP under the cross hairs of the highly political repressive apparatus of the LAPD.

As T.A.C.O. said when the Black Riders organized a demonstration for the SF 8 in Leimert Park in LA last summer, the attack on the SF 8 is an attack not only on the elders and the legacy of the Black Panther Party, but on the current forces struggling for Black liberation and self-defense, such as the BRLP.

The BRLP has recently been building chapters and making contacts in San Diego, Sacramento and the Bay Area. As their recognition and support in the Black community of south L.A., Crenshaw, Watts and the Inland Empire has grown, the police have grown more intent on disrupting their activities. These latest raids and high bails are further proof that the system hates and wants to destroy organized resistance among Black and other colonized and resisting people.

Based on a LAPD affidavit and warrant, LA and San Bernardino sheriffs raided a home in August out in Highland, Calif. The raid, which involved a huge number of deputies as well as federal agents, armored personnel carriers and battering rams, now appears to have been based on the same unsubstantiated allegations of a BRLP "plot" to shoot up LA police stations.

We cannot allow the repressive forces of the state to carry out their plan to lock up the leaders of the BRLP and roll up the party! The Black Riders are being targeted because they are a revolutionary Black organization fighting against the system.

This is just the beginning. The police state is trying to set precedents with the Black Riders as they are doing with the San Francisco 8, so that they can go after anybody who chooses to resist and rebel against this oppressive way of life. "If they come for me in the morning, they will come for you at night."

The Black Riders urge other communities and social justice organizations to support them. The system is trying to isolate them and crush them.

At this point, they need to raise money for their defense. The Black Riders Liberation Party can be contacted and donations can be sent to: Black Riders, P.O. Box 8297, Los Angeles, CA 90008.
