This Movement is Alive

The Black community across the US knows it is the first domestic target for the military take down of the people.  It's very similar to the story in eastern Ukraine as the US-NATO moves to kill people along Russia's border.  The self-defense forces in eastern Ukraine (Donbass) and the black community are engaged in the same challenge.  How do we defend our people?  How do we effectively and morally fight back?  How do we survive? Who will support us?

Friedrich Gustav Emil Martin Niemöller (1892 – 1984) was a German Protestant pastor and social activist and said:
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
