On Thursday, September 3rd, 2020, state agents murdered antifascist Michael Forest Reinoehl in cold blood in Washington state, by direct order of fascist US president Donald Trump. This is the first extrajudicial assassination of an antifascist directly by this regime in the United States.
Reinoehl, in an act of revolutionary self-defense, shot a fascist who threatened himself and a friend. This fascist was in fact close friends with Trump-supporting white supremacist Jeremy Christian who murdered several people on the light rail in Portland, Oregon.
This is a call to action and a commemoration for Michael. An injury to one of us is an injury to all. We are calling for people to take actions in their cities, towns, neighborhoods, or homes. Whether banner drops, postering, demonstrations, direct actions, lighting fireworks, commemorations, or whatever creative ideas people come up with; we want the world to know that this will neither be forgotten nor forgiven.
When the State begins targeted assassinations, rule through terror becomes consolidated. Anarchists, antifascists, and all revolutionaries must stand in solidarity against these attacks and against the capitalist, imperialist state— particularly when in the fear of collapse it bares its teeth. We will not be intimidated. We will fight.
