Solidarity from Sparkle Girl

rise up-fight back

Sparkle Girl and their fellow Seattle citizens praise the heroic insurgents of Miami and London. Likewise, we condemn the Miami police and the entire apparatus of repressive control employed on behalf of ruling class interests. Every brick, every bottle, every word, dance, movement, thought hurled at this traitorous constabulary is well earned and much deserved. We will not be told how to respond to our own oppression. We will not capitulate to the hegemony of capital. We will not be silent. We will not be peaceful. We will not be cowed. We will dance our dance of carnival in every city on earth until the finely appointed homes of the controllers ring with the dionysian clamor of the hungry nightmares forming on their opulent lawns. We have awakened. We are empowered. WE HAVE ALREADY PREVAILED!

There was a time stretching for more than 1,000 years, when the mob was without power or influence, when the entire power of the world was concentrated in the hands of the kings, the nobles and the hierarchy. That was the blackest period in human history.. Then the mob started on its upward march to power-a power only to be realised in the socialist republic. In the course of its upward march the mob has transformed and humanised the world. It has abolished religious persecution and imposed toleration on bigots of all creeds; it has established the value of human life; softened the horrors of war as a preliminary to abolishing it; compelled trial by jury; abolished the death penalty.. and today is fighting to take children from the factory and the mine and put them in school.. in this civilising, humanising work the mob had at all times to meet and master the hatred of kings and nobles and there is not in history a record of any movement for abolishing torture, preventing war, establishing popular suffrage, or shortening the hours of labour led by the hierarchy.. All hail to the mob, the incarnation of progress!
