This fund will help us to continue our serve the people programs and provide funds to guard against state repression! The Black Riders Liberation Party is the new generation 0f the Black Panther Party for Self Defense. The BRLP began in a Y.T.S. gang prison in California when General T.A.C.O. (Taking All Capitalists Out) and other Bloods and Crips began learning about their history of how they were created as up and coming soldiers of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Movement. They learned of this and how the racist United Snakkkes government has been murdering and using Black people since the first Afrikan slaves were brought here. They decided to stop committing genocide against each other and to stand up against white supremacy and kkkapitalist oppression, molding our organization after the first Black revolutionary vanguard in the U.S. the Black Panther Party for Self Defense. A northern California chapter was started in Oakland, CA in 2010 during the struggle for Justice for Oscar Grant and ending police terrorism.
Approximately between 2-4:00 pm on December 15, the van that the BRLP comrades drove up to the Bay Area was stolen by the Oakland Occupying Army. This happened while the van was legally parked on E.12th St. and 23rd Ave. We were attending the Every 36 Hours event at the Eastside Arts Alliance and the comrades from the Los Angeles chapter came to the Bay Area in support of the oakland chapter. The car is registered to a lady friend of a comrade from the LA chapter. When she called the Oakland police to find out why the car was towed, the police told her it was being investigated for gang activity (in Los Angeles mind u)! When the comrades called back inquiring whether or not this was “legal,” the police recanted their statement, saying that it was towed because it was parked in the red. This statement was disproved by the 8 comrades who rode in it and witnessed the parking. Due to our security protocols, we always park legally, especially when moving in a larger group than usual. We did not park in the red and it sounds very illegal for police in Oakland to be towing a car allegedly under investigation for “gang activity” in Los Angeles. The comrade who was able to use this car unfortunately had to cash out $450 to get his friend’s car back and had to cut the mission short to get home and replace the money the system stole from us in the first place! Our study of dialectics teaches us to take these lumps with a smile, because we know every contradiction is an opportunity to educate and organize the people. As well as a continued sign of the pigs’ fear of the threat we represent even at this infantile stage in the development of the struggle.
We will continue to put our bodies on the line to capture the imagination of the “unorganizable” and we will not be slowed down by this poo-butt attempt by the Oakland pigs to neutralize our resources. When u sleep on the floor, how u gone fall outta bed!? Supported only by the people, we have and will continue to work to transform our black commun(e)ity and build intercommunal solidarity with those unafraid to bleed, because of the pools we have already lost.
We will be mobilizing for the next few days to try to raise the $450 the fascist state stole from us. If you are interested in supporting with whatever you can, please do. This might not seem like a lot of money but for those who are pushed out of the job market and refuse to backslide into illegitimate kkkapitalism, this blow hurts. In order to continue this work we must still be able to eat and survive in spite of the pigs’ consistent reactionary criminal activity against us. More info on this repressive attack will be posted soon. Salute and gratitude to the comrades Earl Black and Jessica Citlali Ruiz of the National Brown Berets for providing last minute transportation until we could get the van free!
