Statement on Recent Attacks on Civil Liberties in Denver, Colorado

On September 17th in Denver, Colorado multiple anti-racist demonstrators were targeted and arrested by the chief instruments of the state. This coordinated use of force and intimidation is but one of many instances lately where the state has pursued and suppressed the civil liberties of those involved in revolutionary struggle. More specifically, in this instance those involved with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

With the heightened tension between working-class formations and the state in 2020, the Party of Communists USA understands the importance of standing in solidarity with those being targeted by the state. This type of encroachment on our civil liberties is the undeniable cause of intensifying contradictions within a decaying empire.

2020 has demonstrated the extent to which the state will hunt down those who threaten monopoly capital. PCUSA is dedicated to pursuing and building relations on a local level with progressive forces in our society who stand against all reactionary elements of the state. We support the defense of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) and other public organizations whose civil rights and civil liberties are under attack. An attack against one is an attack against all!
