APRFront Position On the Occupy Movements

The All Peoples Revolutionary Front is not an organizing body of Occupy San Diego or of any the Occupy movements across the United States.  Because this land has endured centuries of colonial conquest and domination at the expense of Indigenous peoples, APRFront cannot promote or endorsethe concept of occupation.  APRFront’s engagement with Occupy movements or attendance at their demonstrations serve the purposes of claiming space for communities of color and articulating the movement to decolonize on a local and global scale.


We continue to observe brutality in the legacy of capitalism, a system that relied upon the enslavement of African and Caribbean peoples, the genocide and displacement of Indigenous peoples, and the violent seizure of lands for colonial profit.  Economic exploitation of labor and resources is only one process of continuing colonization that disproportionately impacts communities of color and third world peoples.  APRFront envisions intersectional and comprehensive social justice that extends beyond limited narratives of class conflict.  Struggles for self-determination have been waged for centuries by our ancestors before us, and will continue through the descendants who follow us.
