About the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement

"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."

The fringe from both ends of the spectrum are gearing up for a fight.

What do they want?

"Short Term Goal: The Underground Railroad

We will create networks for those facing detention, incarceration, deportation, or white supremacist violence to escape and live with dignity. We invite revolutionaries to help build a contemporary underground railroad, outside the reach of the state. Revolutionaries, social centers, and antifa groups that are already active can help build greater infrastructure of resistance to support those fleeing the state. From this foundation, we set the political framework for the next stages.

Long Term Goal: Building the Abolitionist Project

For the Abolitionist project to be successful we must eventually transition from resistance to a revolutionary situation. Relationships and groups built through the underground railroad have the potential to become the foundation for organized defense groups, local councils, and regional/national councils.

We invite comrades to coordinate our activities regionally, and nationally as part of an Abolitionist Council.

Political Foundation

Self-Defense

Defense of oppressed people and of our political projects is paramount. We propose developing and tying defense teams to localities and collectives that are based on abolitionist practices.

The Neighborhood Council

As the Underground Railroad network grows outside the jurisdiction of the state and reactionary forces, it is built through non-hierarchical relationships of trust. Collectives and councils developed according to needs, issues, and political motivation involve people in neighborhood self-governance.

Conflict Resolution and Revolutionary Justice

Forms of conflict resolution are essential for developing revolutionary relationships. Social cohesion, rather than punishment, must be the foundation. Abolitionist political growth seeks to destroy the prison, yet those oppressing others must be combated.

Abolition of Gender

The same forces that put people in bondage also utilize gender roles as a source of domination. Overcoming imprisonment and liberating humanity from captivity must happen simultaneously with the abolition of gender constraints.

Expropriation and the Cooperative Economy

To carve out an autonomous territory, or to begin the revolutionary process, goods, land, and tools must be expropriated, or taken away from those who withhold them. We are striving towards a situation where necessities cannot be taken away from those who need them, but instead are shared with those who lack them."

Same source.

You ignore the importance of digitalization. In the 50's, white america began to see on their new television screens the injustices being visited upon blacks in the South. That changed perceptions drastically. Now the internet not only spreads these occasions of intolerance quicker but provides a platform to organize resistance in the blink of an eye. The Bundy's, the white supremacists, the Nazis can only achieve 15 minutes of fame with hit and run tactics. That is simply not sustainable IMO.

Well sure, except that all they've done (except for one nut) so far is say things you don't like.

No, the Bundy's threatened government officials with weapons. A couple left that Bundy's ranch and executed two police officers eating lunch in a diner in Las Vegas before draping a Gadsden flag over their bodies. Dylan Roof executed blacks praying in a church in Charleston. Another nut shot people in a family planning clinic in Colorado Springs. The Southern Poverty Law Center provides access to a list of hundreds of white supremacist acts.

Um, the Bundy's were not convicted of anything.
Dylan Roof was/is a whacked out paranoid schizophrenic.
The SPLC? Not a bastion of unbiased information.

Do you hold the same revulsion for those killing cops?
