Activism, Civil War, and Insurrection

Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s attack has provided useful precedent for understanding the response of police departments to the politicized assassination of their officers. We do not mean to suggest that embracing assassination is the only path to liberation, or even that assassination is necessarily on the path. We do believe, however, that producing police withdrawal is an essential component of developing resistance to global capital, and definitely the foundational aim of any movement against police murder.
