The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement presents: Burn Down the American Plantation, a book that lays out the political tenets behind this proposal.
Celebrate the book launch with us at this potluck /BBQ. We’ll share a few reflections about the subjects in the text, and save most of the time to eat and talk informally about future organizing in NYC and abroad. Come through for a copy of the book, to learn about ways to get involved, and build relationships with comrades.
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 was never resolved 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.
