Points of Unity for a Feminist & Queer Occupation

7 Dec

1. This capitalist society is based upon a
racist, white supremacist, patriarchal order.
Our organizing must confront, and attack
structural racism and white supremacy in this
city and in our own spaces.

2. Women, Trans people, Queers, Fags,
Dykes, need a space that is OURS.
We are marginalized, harassed, and attacked
in other spaces all the time. We do not all
have the same needs and desires;
our relationships with one another are
structured by the intensified oppression of
people of color, trans people and poor
folks. However, we think we can support
each other and increase our power by
working together.

3. While we know we are not all affected
in the same way by patriarchy, we do believe
that our degradation, marginalization and 
harassment is systematic and structural.
Though we cannot be fully liberated until
we abolish patriarchy, white supremacy
and capitalism in all their forms, this does not
mean we must continue to allow these
systems to victimize us.

4. We are against Non-Profit Organizations.
They support the system we want to destroy
and pay less than lip-service to the communities
they claim to aid. Non-profits have created a
style of political organizing that will never really
threaten capitalism, patriarchy, or white
supremacy.

5. We are against the cops; they are our
enemy. Police protect the interests of the
ruling class, repress our resistance, harass,
injure, rape and kill people in our communities.
We do not seek to reform, negotiate, or work
with this system; instead, we work with each other!
