“When you cut facilities, slash jobs, abuse power,discriminate, drive people into deeper poverty and shoot people dead whilst refusing to provide answersor justice, the people will rise up and express their anger and frustration if you refuse to hear their cries. A riot is the language of the unheard.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, December, 1963

to make victory possible.
The scandal-ridden Tory/ Lib Dem Governmentand its corrupt, super-rich backers areresponsible for every broken window, burned-out building, overturned bus and person injuredin the youth rebellion that is rocking Londonand spreading to other cities. The fierceunleashing of youth anger was bound to occur when the Government got away witheliminating EMA and other vital education andsocial welfare programmes, destroying what isleft of a social safety net, and doing nothing toend the record levels of youth unemployment.The Government's racist policy of increasing police brutality, stop & search and other repressive measures against black, Asian andother minority communities was certain to reach a boiling point and then explode. The Tories andLibDems worship the dog-eat-dog, ‘anything goes’,free market ideology that promotes the right of every individual to enrich themselves by any meansand without regard for the social consequences of their actions - but when desperate youths in some of the most discriminated-against communities applythe same methods they are condemned andslandered by Prime Minister Cameron and hiscynical, hypocritical political and media backers. Inthe words of Malcolm X, the current youth rebellionis nothing more than the
“chickens coming home toroost.”
Movement For Justice - the Leadership that will Always Speak and Fight for the Oppressed
Movement for Justice
, Britain’s leadinganti-racist, integrated, youth-led civil rightsorganization stands with the youth. They are our people. The Labour Party has abandoned any pretext of fighting for the poor, working class,and specially oppressed black, Asian, Muslimand immigrant communities. In Parliament,Labour MP’s have allowed the cuts to gothrough with little more than a whimper. LocalLabour Councils have instituted the cuts in their own boroughs against their own people without putting up any kind of a fight. The kind of localCouncil campaigns of resistance to cuts thatwere popularised by sections of the Labour Leftin the early 1980s don’t exist anywhere now.The Labour Party has either signed onto or taken no action against the growing institutionalracism and the scapegoating of immigrantcommunities. Not a single “progressive” or “socialist” mainstream leader in Britain - no politician, including those associated with far left political organisations, or the Labour Party, or theestablishment Asian and black community leaders,have even got angry and denounced the sub-humanconditions we are supposed to passively accept or the second class treatment of our communities anddemanded that the poor be given the basicnecessities of life and be treated like human beings.
