118,296.  De Gaulle’s complacency seems hard to believe 50 years on but he wasn’t alone: few imagined how momentous and tumultuous 1968 would turn out to be.  So how did it happen within five months of that new year speech France was brought to a standstill and de Gaule’s government almost toppled by the worst rioting seen in Paris since the revolution – the earlier one?  (Revolution & Protest & Dissent & Solidarity & 1960s)  Vive le Revolution!

123,679.  The state will be viscious … They will throw everything at us … We have no time left just from climate change, we have no time left, and in that sense resistance becomes a moral imperative.  We have to stop being constrained by the tyranny of the practical.  (Corporation & United States of America & Democracy & Solidarity & Protest & Dissent & Revolution)  ibid.

123,681.  But if we don’t stand up, it can’t be seen and we can’t use the word hope.  I don’t know if we will win.  I don’t even know if we will survive as a species.  But these corporate forces have us by the throat and they have my children by the throat.  And in the end, I don’t fight fascists because I will win, I fight facists because they are fascists.  (Corporation & United States of America & Democracy & Solidary & Protest & Dissent & Revolution & Fascism)  ibid.

126,873.  So we say – we always say in the Black Panther Party that they can do anything they want to to us.  We might not be back.  I might be in jail.  I might be anywhere.  But when I leave, you’ll remember I said, with the last words on my lips, that I am a revolutionary.  And you’re going to have to keep on saying that.  You’re going to have to say that I am a proletariat, I am the people.  I am not the pigs.  You’ve got to make a distinction.  And the people are going to have to attack the pigs.  The people are going to have to stand up against the pigs.  That’s what the Panthers are doing here.  That’s what the Panthers are doing all over the world.  (Black Panthers & Revolution)  Fred Hampton, speech I am a Revolutionary

 

 

126,874.  We are quite obviously faced with a need to organize some small defenses to the more flagrant abuses of the system now … While we await the precise moment when all of capitalism’s victims will indignantly rise to destroy the system, we are being devoured … Some of us are going to have to take our courage in hand and build a hard revolutionary cadre for selective retaliatory violence.  (Black Panthers & Revolution)  Jonathan P Jackson, Blood in My Eye p11-12

126,917.  We believe that the most pressing political necessity is the consolidation of a United Front joining together all sections of the revolutionary, radical and democratic movements.  Only a united front — led in the first place by the national liberation movements and the working people — can decisively counter, theoretically, ideologically and practically, the increasingly fascistic and genocidal posture of the present ruling clique.  (Black Panthers & Black Culture & Revolution)  Angela Davis, If They Come in the Morning, 1971

 

126,918.  In the heat of our pursuit for fundamental human rights, Black people have been continually cautioned to be patient.  We are advised that as long as we remain faithful to the existing democratic order, the glorious moment will eventually arrive when we will come into our own as full-fledged human beings.  But having been taught by bitter experience, we know that there is a glaring incongruity between democracy and the capitalist economy which is the source of our ills.   Regardless of all rhetoric to the contrary, the people are not the ultimate matrix of the laws and the system which govern them — certainly not Black people and other nationally oppressed people, but not even the mass of whites.  The people do not exercise decisive control over the determining factors of their lives.  (Black Panthers & Black Culture & Revolution)  ibid.  

 

126,919.  Needless to say, the history of the United States has been marred from its inception by an enormous quantity of unjust laws, far too many expressly bolstering the oppression of Black people.  Particularized reflections of existing social inequities, these laws have repeatedly borne witness to the exploitative and racist core of the society itself.  For Blacks, Chicanos, for all nationally oppressed people, the problem of opposing unjust laws and the social conditions which nourish their growth, has always had immediate practical implications.  Our very survival has frequently been a direct function of our skill in forging effective channels of resistance.  In resisting, we have sometimes been compelled to openly violate those laws which directly or indirectly buttress our oppression.  But even when containing our resistance within the orbit of legality, we have been labeled criminals and have been methodically persecuted by a racist legal apparatus.  (Black Panthers & Black Culture & Revolution & Resistance)  ibid.
