Seattle Black Panthers showing off their advanced communications technology

Too many good things to let just slip by:

  • “The Atlantic” has an article on the racist origins of gun control in general, and the impetus created by the Black Panthers –

“In February of 1967, Oakland police officers stopped a car carrying Newton, Seale, and several other Panthers with rifles and handguns. When one officer asked to see one of the guns, Newton refused. “I don’t have to give you anything but my identification, name, and address,” he insisted. This, too, he had learned in law school.

“Who in the hell do you think you are?” an officer responded.

“Who in the hell do you think you are?,” Newton replied indignantly. He told the officer that he and his friends had a legal right to have their firearms.

Newton got out of the car, still holding his rifle.

“What are you going to do with that gun?” asked one of the stunned policemen.

“What are you going to do with your gun?,” Newton replied.”

  • I think this is a good trade, and happily the choice is still mine to make (for the moment).
  • One more reason the government should not be involved in mass transit.

The Capitalist Workers’ Party (CWP) is part of the international capitalist tendency and a firm supporter of the capitalist order and way of life. Though inevitably and dialectically internationalist by the pre-conditions of our existence, we firmly suppoprt the Western Order and fear the implications of the Fall of the West and its values which are by their draw on millions of immigrants, proof of their virtue. We recognise the importance and potency of Marxism and Socialism but oppose these schools of thought, their ideologies and their political methods. Their legacy in the 20th Century supports our position.
