Message from the BLF President
Last year Black First Land First (BLF) resolved that Brother Micah Xavier Johnson a Martyr of black liberation the world over. Today, exactly one year after he was killed by the para military white supremacist US police force, we call on all black people to start a process of remembering our brother whose actions are the highest form of love for black people. He chose to die for us. He is above all of us who are too scared to liberate ourselves from the plantation by any means necessary.
We note that the global black organizations who are praised for resistance by the white world, continue to distance themselves from the brave black warrior. BLF embraces our brother, Micah X Johnson, who we regard as a revolutionary holy saint. His love for black people is exemplary and inspirational. We love you Brother Micah X Johnson.
BLF repeats its call to our people everywhere to honor Brother Micah Xavier Johnson. Lets observe a moment of silence while raising our black power fists. Lets raise our voices in loud salutations with the words, “Black Power! Long live the spirit of Micah Xavier Johnson, long live!”.
All BLF meetings, protests actions and other events shall in this month open with a moment of silence for Brother Micah. We ask all BLF members, and indeed all our people, to display images of Michah X Johnson on social media to ensure that we never forget him and never forgive those who took his life.
Micah X Johnson, soldier who died with his boots on so that we blacks can breathe! We shall never forget!
