Montreal Police – Capitalism’s Milita

With the week against police brutality coming up fast, as well as an important social movement emerging, it is important to remind ourselves of what role the police plays. More precisely, we would like to enumerate several reasons for which we oppose the police, wherever it is, wherever it’s from, and in every and all situations.

1458432_476650485809226_4102247111885098979_nIn our rotten societies, not a single week or day goes by without lengthening the list of injustices committed by members of the police. They have never hesitated to humiliate us, hurt us, play with our lives and those of our families and friends, and even to assassinate us if need be.

Strangely, we find that the people most repeatedly affected by these police ‘errors’ belong vastly to the working class, whether employed or not. Bosses, bankers, traders, and other living blight are spared from these problems. If wage-work dispossesses us each moment of our lives, the police reminds us that even our own lives no longer belong to us, since they have the right to take them away forever.

Whoever has even slightly participated in a social movement during their lifetime has very likely been confronted with the repressive force of the police, at one time or another. Riot police, tactical intervention teams, provincial police, and other forces of repression have the sole purpose of breaking strikes, preventing protests against the status quo, and repressing more or less violently all political opposition. This violence – that of the State – by constantly arming the police, by equipping them with military technology and ‘non-lethal’ weaponry, has given them the full ability to ‘control crowds’ almost entirely independently. There are jobs, and entire teams, whose social utility consists only in ‘breaking protesters’ more efficiently, more rapidly, and always more inhumanely.

To ensure the reproduction and the maintenance of its own domination, the ruling class has two tools at its disposal: ideology and violence. If ideology is diffused throughout society, and demands that everybody stay in line, then the role of violence is to bring deviants and dissenters back in line. The State, guarantor of class reproduction, ensures the monopoly of violence by means of the police. In other words, the social function of the police in its entirety is to ensure the maintenance of a class’s domination over another, whether ‘softly’ by applying the law, or by direct repression. As a revolutionary union, we wish to overthrow the dominant class, and as such are fundamentally opposed to its dominant ideology, and to its police.

Let us build solidarity with one another against the police.

No Justice, No Peace!

As the week against police brutality is coming and that a significant social movement approach, it seems important to recall some elements of analysis needed to understand the role of the police, of all body. More precisely, we wish to mention here the various reasons that lead us to oppose the police, whoever she is, from any source, and in all situations.


Every week, every day spent in this company deadly extension further the list of injustices by a member of a police force. They are and they are private-are never to humiliate us, hurt us, we amputate, playing with our lives and those of our loved ones and our fellow-nes, even murder us if this is their pleasure.

Strangely, we find that the individual-e-s-e-s touched by these "blunders" repeatedly belong overwhelmingly to the working class, employé-e-s or not. bosses, bankers, traders and other dominant gangrene are spared this scourge. If the wage robs us every moment of our time, Police reminds us that even our own lives longer belong to us, and since they have the right to permanently deprive us.

Anyone who has participated so slightly in a social movement during its existence has probably faced-e, at one time or another, to police forces of repression. The riot police, groups tactical interventions, police stations and other law enforcement groups have sole vocation to break strikes, prevent contestation of the established order, suppress more or less violently political opponents. this violence, that of the State, still more arming police, equipping it with a neo-military technology and weapons "non-lethal", gives it the full capacity of "crowd control" virtually autonomously. There are trades, and trades, whose social utility is only to "break the protester", increasingly effective, ever faster, ever more inhumanity.

To ensure its reproduction and maintenance of its own domination, the ruling class uses two tools : ideology and violence. If ideology is diffused throughout society, and invites us to e-remain in the rank which is his, violence must bring in the right way deviant and opponents. The State, guarantor of this class of reproduction, ensures the monopoly of violence through its police. In other words, the social function of any police force is to ensure the continued domination of one class over another, or so 'soft' by simply applying the law, either by repression properly speaking. As a revolutionary union, we want to overthrow the ruling class, and therefore we strongly oppose to its dominant ideology, and its police.

Against police, build solidarity among each-e.

No justice, no peace.
