Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia supports struggle in Baltimore

By staff

Fight Back News Service is circulating the following statement from the Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia

“Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it.” – Malcolm X

Each year pro-government organizations in U.S. release reports on human rights violations in other countries. These reports become basis of sanctions, military and social propaganda for foreign policy of the United States. Human rights are used as a trigger to push sovereign states, while mass media are preparing the society for “democratic” changes in their country.

It was like this in Ukraine, where up now the blood of innocent is being spilled. We see how human rights are being crudely violated in United States itself. Thanks to independent mass media and Internet, we can receive truthful information about the reasons behind the conflict.

The mass events of expressing people’s will in Ferguson have barely calmed down, when the fire of struggle got lit in Baltimore, where many U.S. citizens are undergoing repressions by law enforcement officers. When police arrests somebody, they use force in such way, that “suspects” usually suffer serious medical injuries. Federal government tries to convince international mass media, that Baltimore is a capital of poor and uneducated people, whom turned the area into criminal playground.

We know that in reality it’s a place where working class is living – regular citizens, struggling throughout their life, not criminals in any way. Criminals are sitting in Washington, DC, carrying the policy of lobbying oil and military corporations, in order to create even more wars. The whole world is tired of infinite conflicts, provoked by U.S. Government. Billions of dollars are spent for military operations and upholding of a huge army, while this money could be used to create new jobs or provide free health care. Put this entire immense budget together, and you could have yourself hundreds of factories, huge state hospitals, etc; but alas, U.S. Department of State and Obama administration spend this budget on arming law enforcement and the Army

One kills inside U.S., another – outside. That is the true face of US ‘democracy.’

Today we’re Rasmea Odeh, Mumia Abu Jamal, Konstantin Yaroshenko and others, who suffered the U.S. government repressions.
