Northeast Anarchist People of Colour Conference
Revolutionary Principles of Unity
1. We call for a social revolution to erect a new society entirely.
2. We want decent housing, food, clothing and other essentials for all, not just the rich.
3. We oppose all forms of colonialism and imperialism in the Third and Fourth Worlds and support the struggles of all oppressed peoples in the West.
4. We oppose nation-state wars and the building of a fascist police state based on hysteria over "terrorism."
5. We oppose any form of white supremacy, white cultural chauvinism, whiteness or internalized racism in the Anarchist movement, and call for unity and recognition of our right to autonomy.
6. We strive and fight to dismantle, deconstruct and unlearn (in no particular order but all at once) white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, heterosexism, speciesism, transphobia, queerphobia, environmental racism, ageism, classism and authoritarianism.
7. We oppose the oppression of womyn, queers, transfolk, two spirits, youth, genderqueers, differently able-bodied people, people with mental health complexities, animals and all that are oppressed.
8. We oppose any forms of capitalism and class oppression and support the liberation of the poor and the workers.
9. We call for an immediate moratorium of the death penalty and the dismantling of the prison industrial complex.
10. We demand an immediate end to all violence against womyn (sexual, domestic or otherwise). We fully support survivors' (of sexual assault and rape) autonomy. We demand all perpetrators adhere and cooperate to the fullest extent the procedures and demands of the survivors and the communities.
