The proletarian youth in its broadest sense are marked by a clear rejection of the institutions of “public order”: police and armies, which personify the barrier between a private and commercial world and our lives and needs.

How You and Your Co-Workers Can F*ck the Police

The racist police murder of George Floyd has lit a fire in the tinderbox of pandemic-era America. We need to carry that energy and rage into every corner of the country and that includes our workplaces, where we spend a huge fraction of our life.

They are there to protect the ruling class, to crush demonstrations which get out of hand, to break strikes and to control working class neighbourhoods. They spy on any oppositional movements, infiltrating their undercover agents and using methods of provocation and other dubious means of operating, including insinuating themselves into positions of trust and establishing sexual relations with activists.
