Anti-cop mission drawn up by Black Panther group

Van Jones, President Obama’s controversial environmental adviser, signed a petition calling for nationwide “resistance” against police, accusing them of using the 9/11 attacks to carry out policies of torture.

The petition was organized by the October 22nd Coalition, an anti-police organization whose mission statement was drawn up by leaders of the radical Black Panther Collective for Social Progress.

The movement organizes yearly national anti-police demonstrations, accusing police of “brutality, detentions, domestic spying, profiling and other attacks on human and civil liberties.” The protests are held under the banner of the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.”

The 2006 statement, available on the website for the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, calls on participants to “resist so that we will not be crushed. Our resistance gives other people courage.”

The statement accused the police of deliberately murdering civilians in cases that later were mostly ruled accidents.
