The new modern militarized fort!

The wave of police cities being built across the country must be analyzed through the lens of colonialism and the state’s effort to maintain its dominance through the expansion of the police state.

This week marks the one-year anniversary of the state’s attack and arrest of Amin Chaoui and others challenging its attempt to build another kop city, this time within the Atlanta, Georgia area.

It is important to consider the creation of kop city within the broader context of state repression and the creation of an expanded police state of hyper-surveillance, which drives increasing intrusion into people’s private lives. The repressive state depends on using poor or working class people to surveil and dominate other poor, oppressed and marginalized people.

It is also interesting to note where many of these Kop towns are being built (modern forts for police, sheriff, modern groups and local settler populations) and their role in further enforcing minority rule. Monitor, control and secure the natives, the population perceived as a threat. Whose interest do they serve?

In the old days, when genocide occurred all over this land, military and settler forts were built from which to launch raiding parties, supposedly to protect the local population (we know this is not the case here) and also served as places where captured natives, enslaved Africans, and others were held, interrogated, tortured, or forced into servitude.

“Cop City-ATL is designed to join Michigan Camp Grayling, founded in 1913 when local lumber magnate, Rasmus Hanson, donated more than 13,000 acres to the state of Michigan for military training. Camp Grayling has since grown to 147,000 acres that spanning three counties of maneuver area, state-of-the-art firing ranges and modern support facilities, making it the largest National Guard Training Center in the Country. In fact, there are forty-seven other states that “They have the same or similar plans.” (1)

So why are so many of these being built across the country? Why on such a large scale and with such a wide range of training related to urban warfare and repression? The same training and tactics used in theaters of war such as Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan and various parts of Africa are now being taught and prepared to be applied to neo-colonized natives and people of color and other so-called disenfranchised people. within the country. the heart of the empire. Could it be an opportunistic response to the BLM rebellions and protests following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Mike Brown, to name just a few? An opportunity to promote a neo-fascist agenda of greater militarization of the shock troops of the so-called law enforcement forces.

The rebellions and protests of a few years ago exposed the flaws and weaknesses within the US government and security infrastructure as protesters and resisters attacked government agencies, police stations, courthouses, city halls, etc., all of which strengthened and emboldened the masses who may have previously initially felt fear, fear or intimidation by the State and its security forces/apparatus.

This is also why you see the harsh response to the Kop City resisters. The use of the RICO Act and other Federal Conspiracy Statutes, designed to intimidate, crush and dismantle such organizations and the development of political infrastructures.

This is a strategy and tactic that hides in plain sight for the supposed constitutional right to assemble, to protest, to speak truth to power, but apparently not.

If people like the Kop City defendants are convicted on these types of conspiracy charges, it sets a dangerous precedent for all revolutionaries and political activists and any organization that opposes and challenges the domestic policies of the United States. The thought police can come to arrest you, prosecute you, accuse you of being a conspirator if you belong to a political organization or collective. Then you become a terrorist or security threat and end up in one of the Prison Industrial Complex’s many Supermaxes. It is no different in a prison environment where the political organization is identified as gang activity or Security Threat Group/STG activity, our books and literature are considered to promote terrorism, subversiveness or violence and you end up housed in a Secure Housing Unit or in a Supermax. on the administrator’s segregation status.

These kop city complexes being built are military bases disguised as Protect and Serve. It does not serve the interests of the people and must be exposed and questioned!!!
