Armed communist group calls for “revolutionary martyrdom”

As part of International Women’s Day, a militant communist group called the Red Guards – Los Angeles published a blog post titled “Long live International Working Women’s Day: Build the Women’s Guerrilla Defense Unit!”. They began this post by honoring the lives of women who have participated in armed revolutionary conflict in order to advance the violent, authoritarian ideology of communism:

“Today on International Working Women’s Day we must honor the memory of working women everywhere who fight for communism and who give their lives for the people. We ought to riot in celebration of proletarian women, especially those currently engaging in Protracted People’s Wars: the women of the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army, the women of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army, the women of the Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist and the Liberation Army of the Workers and Peasants of Turkey. As well as all the past revolutionary Maoist women of the Movimiento Feminino Popular and the women leaders of the Communist Party of Peru and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) and the People’s Liberation Army.”

They then spend the remainder of the post advocating for armed preemptive violence against people they believe to be their enemies (capitalists, the patriarchy, etc.):

“We have to initiate offensive attacks, as part of a larger defensive stage in our preparatory sub-stage of war. We have to hit. We have to hit hard. Women have to hit. Women have to hit hard. It is through severe punishment – but a revolutionary kind which we call revolutionary violence – that the enemy is subdued, even momentarily, or completely neutralized.”

They also clarify that they are LITERALLY talking about arming themselves for war:

“Patriarchy cannot be simply unlearned. We must literally arm ourselves and go to war with U.S. capitalism.”

They then talk about the glory that will be bestowed upon martyrs who take up their cause:

“Revolutionary martyrdom is unavoidable because going to war against capitalism, imperialism and settler-colonialism is the condemned duty of all exploited and oppressed people. So we say glory to those who gave and give their lives to the masses and the revolution. Glory to the immortal women martyrs who shall be honored by their international comrades taking up arms and taking up their positions in their military units and Party positions.”

And to once again clarify that they are in fact violent extremists, they end the blog with:

“A proletarian Women’s Guerrilla Defense Unit is not enough in and of itself. This unit must be thought of as the seed planted for the growing all-gender working-class revolutionary army to carry out the highest point we can aspire to: a revolutionary soldier in the coming Protracted People’s War.

The time for activism is over. Now is the time of war.”

This latest blog post comes just a few weeks after they stated that their anti-gentrification techniques should be escalated from rebellion to war. In addition to their open calls for armed political violence, their social media footprint is loaded with communist propaganda and praise for dictators who have murdered millions of people:
