Another Reminder That the #BlackLivesMatter Movement is Actually a Revolutionary Communist Program

Marylin Zuniga, the Philadelphia teacher who had her students write "get well cards" to Mumia Abu-Jamal, tweeted a shout out to "comrade" Johanna Fernandez, who is a Professor of History at Baruch College.

Professor Fernandez is the coordinator for Educators for Mumia Abu-Jamal, an organization that proclaims a "revolutionary practice" in solidarity with political prisoners.

And according to the professor, in an essay at the Huffington Post:
The Fraternal Order of Police [of Philadelphia] knows that there is danger in the widespread discovery of Mumia by today's powerful generation of young black and brown activists. Indeed, their serious engagement with the political analysis, challenges, and lessons of struggle waged by black radicals last time -- a significant number of whom are political prisoners today -- would be a beautifully dangerous thing. It would catapult the Black Lives Matter movement, and our nation, closer to revolution. And for the leading black prophetic voice of our time, that would mean freedom, indeed.
So, again, we have it from radical activists at the roots of the movement: #BlackLivesMatter is about fomenting the communist revolution, the overthrow of the capitalist system in the U.S.

I've reported this fact numerous times, for example, "The Revolutionary Communist Roots of #BlackLivesMatter."
