with the goal of building up a
community defense Network
capable of housing, feeding, and protecting exploited and marginalized communities
CROW's defense programs are designed to cover the obvious and not-so-obvious defense needs of all exploited and vulnerable communities. Self-defense and firearms are a given, and we encourage all our members familiarize themselves with at least the basics. However, we also need to build up communities with strong political educations, an understanding of self-determination, and class consciousness. The well-trained mind is much less susceptible to false consciousness and malicious suggestions.
We need communities secure in homes, with food on the table, and the health to live life. We need communities capable of self-organizing in response to and in preparation of disasters. We need communities safe from the threats of fascists, racists, sexists, and capitalists. We need workers capable of fighting and defending their victories from far-right and fascist reaction and capitalism's systemic and consistently imposed offensives. We need a society that won't be bought into imperialist exploitation by shiny cars or smart devices.
We aim to bring training, tools, and organizing to any community that asks us. We wish to cooperate with any and all existing organizations dedicated to working class defense and offer whatever support to them we can.
