May 29: Heather Heyer’s Birthday, Call to Action
“If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”
In August of 2017 a brave and strong woman was martyred by a Nazi terrorist- though because his skin wasn’t brown our white supremacist government refused to use that propaganda word. The only way a white person in this country is labelled terrorist is when they (we) destroy capitalist property: groups like Earth Liberation Front caused at about $200 million in property damage between 2003 and 2008 (), targeting only property, never life. We are told by the same FBI that murdered Fred Hampton while he was asleep in his bed that this is “eco” terrorism, but Nazis attempting mass vehicular homicide is not. Somehow.
Now the Nazis are planning to come back to Charlottesville on the anniversary of her murder, to celebrate “Unite the Right 2.0”. Of course we’ll be there in force, of course they’ll be blooded, defeated, and humiliated. But its not enough. Heather was a beautiful person living a full life, and it was ended by an ideology of hatred and genocide *that has become normalized in our culture* from the Nazi-sympathetic president of our illegitimate government all the way to racist cops and white supremacist militias training and biding their time. The threat is real, but: not this time motherfuckers. We will not let this happen. From Afrin to Charlottesville, the revolution against fascism and imperial capitalism is one. We stand together, and we will replace you.
So we choose to celebrate Heather’s life with resistance. The IRPGF of North America calls for an international day of direct action against fascists on her birthday, May 29. Further, we call on antifascists across the United States and Canada to hold candlelight vigils in every city, masked up and armed. There are things we have learned in our bones- ACAB, ICE=Gestapo, Cops and Klan go hand in hand. Community self-defense is our only defense- the State uses violence to protect the privilege of a ruling class of billionaires and the systems of oppression they use to divide and conquer us. We use violence only for revolutionary self-defense, for autonomy. We’re holding vigils for one of our martyrs. If fascists choose to interfere we don’t want police “protection”, we can protect ourselves. And we will- together we are strong. We will protect ourselves until both fascism and the police-state are transcended and extinct.
We are paying attention, and we are outraged. If revolution isn’t justified yet, then when? Light a candle for Heather on May 29 and watch it burn, remember her compassionate soul, remember all the genocides of our history and look inside yourself and among your comrades for the strength to prevent the next one.
“The history of progress is written in the blood of men and women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man’s right to his body, or woman’s right to her soul.”
“Give us what belongs to us in peace, and if you don’t give it to us in peace, we will take it by force.”
