End Policing Now
End Policing Now
As individuals our capacities are limited, only through mass organization, education, and community solidarity can we hope to overthrow an enemy that has unlimited wealth and resources at its disposal. Our true strength is in our numbers and our fundamental dedication to equity, revolution, and the future of the earth. We must study those who have come the closest to defeating the capitalists and refine our methods and approaches to reach more, teach more, and build revolutionary solidarity. This list is based on the historic, revolutionary demands of the Black liberation movement. We ask that you sign our list of demands, ask others to do so, and join us in the fight to dismantle capitalism, starting with the police.
1. Disarm the Police/ICE
We call for all law enforcement officials to be immediately stripped of all arms (no guns, no chemical weapons, no batons, no instruments of destruction, no helicopters). Their use of instruments of war against civilians constitutes an international war crime.
2. Abolish the police system and ICE
We call for the end to all police forces and the closure of ICE.
3. Protect the right of Black, Brown and Indigenous Communities to defend themselves against the police/ICE.
Until the police are eradicated from our communities, we invoke the right to defend ourselves by any means necessary. We call for the right for communities of color arm and defend themselves against the illegal and genocidal attacks of the police and ICE.
4. Community control of the police. Replace police with community/worker models of public safety.
We call for the right to claim absolute community control of the police, replacing them with new models of public safety that value and respect life and do not exploit the poor and working class for the sake of capitalist expansion.
