Two revolutionary abolitionist groups rioted in New York City last night, demanding the freeing of all “political prisoners” arrested during the BLM riots.

The two groups who called themselves the “New Afrikan Black Panther Party” and the “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement,” of people (who looked mostly white) chanted the BLM chant “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground” and carried a sign proclaiming “Death to America” with an anarchist “A” symbol on it.

You can see them marching around Chinatown here:

Looking a lot like ISIS.

According to the New York Post, they smashed windows, hitting at least two Starbucks, five banks and a Duane Reade in addition to graffitiing numerous businesses including with Abolition. They also set dumpster and trash can fires.

You can check them chanting and flying foreign flags here, including what looks like a Palestinian flag.

But then the police moved in and arrested at least eight people.

All were charged with rioting some were charged with other offenses as well in relation to if they were carrying weapons.

One was discovered to be from Portland, another was from Iowa. Police recovered two stun guns, smoke grenades, burglary tools and items to spray graffiti. There was an estimated $100,000 in damage in Lower Manhattan.

The event was advertised on Twitter.

Security footage obtained by NBC4 shows a protester in a balaclava using a tool to smash windows of a shop as others held umbrellas to shield the vandal from view.

“We call on everyone who stood up during the #GeorgeFloyd uprising and all supporters to come out to say #DropTheCharges for all who have fought for our liberation!” wrote one of the groups that organized the event, RAM NYC, while promoting the protest on Twitter late last month.

So carrying foreign flags, chanting to “burn precincts” down, holding death to America signs. I’m thinking there’s a name for folks when they do this, it’s not “peaceful.”
