With Covid-19 outbreaks on the rise all over the settler-state that is the u.s., the colonizers are scrambling to find ways to keep us working so that they may continue their looting of our land, lives, labor, and resources.
Not only does history show us, but our own individual lives show us every day that the colonizer doesn’t give a damn about the health of the colonized poor and working-class. Pandemic or not, colonialism is here for one thing: to maintain oppression and exploitation over our labor, land, lives, and resources.
The united snakkkes has been a perfect example of this since the beginning of the pandemic. It has shown that the colonizer’s only priority is to continue exploiting the colonized masses no matter the cost, even if that cost is our lives.
This colonial, capitalist system is crumbling, and nothing is more dangerous than a dying beast lashing out, especially during a pandemic; amerikkka and all white power colonial state apparatuses are doing the only thing they know how to do—exploit colonized people all the way to our deathbeds while continuing to reap the profits of Colonized labor.
Recent “measures” have been adopted by most of California to stop the most recent surges of the colonialvirus. The colonizer government’s past efforts to wrench their precious economy open have been genocidal, leading to hundreds of thousands of colonized workers’ deaths. Now they turn to stay-at-home orders to try and make sure they don’t lose their grip on their cash cow, Colonized labor.
Details of the “stay-at-home” orders
The new round of “stay-at-home” orders called by the colonizer is due to the limited number of ICU units available. It is estimated that regional ICU units’ capacity fell below 15%; this is only the beginning of a bad winter as “social safety net” programs are planned to expire at the end of December.
The “shutdown” is set to last through December, and the shortlist of activities and sectors to close are indoor and outdoor playgrounds, indoor recreational facilities, hair salons and barbershops, personal care services museums, zoos, movie theaters, wineries, bars, breweries, distilleries, and family entertainment centers.
We should be infuriated that the only reason these activities/businesses were even allowed to reopen in the first place is because of the desire of the colonizer to exploit and profit from us!
California’s hospitals are expected to struggle with the incoming surge of cases due to recent thankstaking activities. A reported 180k cases resulted from positive tests, 1,347 deaths, and 102,148 people currently hospitalized in the amerikkka just from celebrating this colonial celebration of genocide.
Keep in mind that all of these are recorded cases are just from those who have chosen to get tested. There are likely thousands of cases more than what is being reported.
“We are going to see an unprecedented surge of cases following Thanksgiving this year, and if people don’t learn from Thanksgiving, we’re going to see it after Christmas as well,” says colonizer James Phillips, chief of disaster medicine at george washington University Hospital. Note how he specifically blames the masses of colonized people, and not the system upholding all of this death.
With 33 million people (about 84% of CA’s total population) following the orders of a half-assed declaration to stay at home, the damage of the virus will continue to ravage colonized communities across Turtle Island as we are continually forced to work to keep this dying colonial-capitalist machine going.
Cases continue to rise
This stay-home-and-die order has no meaning unless backed with the material support needed to endure this pandemic. The likelihood of this happening under this system is zero because that means the colonizer would have to give a damn about us, the colonized poor and working-class, and we know that isn’t going to happen. Preventing the virus’s spread and deaths of colonized working-class people goes against the interests of the bourgeoisie, who care only about amassing more wealth from our exploitation.
This new order given by colonizer governor, gavin newsom, is by default a confession of the recklessness and cold blooded murder that the state has been engaging in with the lives of Colonized people. It never wanted to save the Colonized masses. It only wanted to save itself, to save the status-quo of colonialism. The united snakkkes will continue to do what it does best: destroy colonized people and our communities.
Without a full lockdown that considers the material needs of the people, whatever measures imposed on amerikkkan subjects are a complete and absolute joke. It is the colonized workers who create the surplus of wealth needed for the colonizer to continue its dominance.
Once the botched Pfizer vaccine is released, the ruling class will continue to push us into shopping malls, telling us it is safe to do so since the perhaps mandatory covid vaccine will be made available.
Colonized people build from the ashes
The future of colonized peoples rests in our very own hands! Together we can build dual contending power against the parasite that is colonialism. We are doing just that through building Hammer City, our Hammers In Yo Hood campaign, and food/clothing drives all across Turtle Island!
We’ve met our people’s material needs more than the colossus of the north ever has and will. Equipping our communities with free PPE kits, including KN95 masks, we are building the organization and self-determination needed to handle the next disaster the colonial-state places onto our shoulders. That is until we overturn and smash the likes of white power colonialism.
Our work now will set the framework for a future in which no one lives at the expense of another.
Join Black Hammer today, be the leader that your ancestors know you are, and help be apart of something more than charity give our people the tools to liberate themselves.
