The Power of the People is the Force of Life

By The George Jackson Brigade


The George Jackson Brigade was an armed guerilla group that operated in the Pacific Northwest in the 1970s and was one of the most unique political formations that developed during a period of revolutionary armed struggle within the US. According to Bo Brown, an ex-Brigade member "some people in the Brigade called themselves Marxist-Leninists, some people called themselves anti-authoritarians. We were not all white. We were not all anything, we were pretty diverse actually. Half of us were women. Half of those women were lesbians. We were probably 90% working class, 75% ex-convicts, and we were tired of armchair revolutionaries who read great books and made predictions and attempted to become the leadership of various movements that didn't really do anything." Their 1977 Political Statement outlines their political vision as well as the ongoing debates among Brigade members. This edition also includes a chronology of Brigade actions.
