WATCH: 'Marxist-Leninist' revolutionaries forecast 'bloodshed' at pro-abortion protest
Syracuse University students held a pro-abortion protest last month that advocated for socialism and abolishing the Supreme Court.
One student told Campus Reform that there would likely be bloodshed.
Syracuse University (SU) students recently demanded a socialist revolution at a pro-abortion protest, telling Campus Reform to expect bloodshed.
"I firmly believe we need a socialist society and in order to do that we need a revolution," Katie Mott, SU graduate student and Party for Socialism and Liberation student committee member, told Campus Reform. "Will there be some bloodshed? Certainly. We gotta take back our power."
It was held at Walnut Park near the Central New York campus.
Campus Reform observed many attendees were students who gathered in the wake of the leaked draft Supreme Court opinion that may overturn Roe v. Wade.
“We are fully in support of a socialist society," Mott said. "So we do not agree with the fact that 9 unelected Supreme Court Judges decided our future.”
PSL student organizer Stephanie Kenific told Campus Reform that the Supreme Court should be abolished.
"It’s shown time and again it’s not a defender of people, it’s not a defender of democracy, it’s a defender of the capitalist class," Kenific said. "Every step of the way they have voted to erode our rights that have been hard-fought and hard-won.”
The protest featured speeches from attendees and the crowd erupted in pro-abortion chants.
Campus Reform captured exclusive footage of the event.
"Sexism means we gotta fight back, no justice means we gotta fight back, racism means we gotta fight back," the crowd chanted.
Students also shouted, "Pro-life is a lie, they don't care if women die."
Socialism is the only answer to protect pro-abortion policies. according to Mott. However, she says that the transition would reportedly not be peaceful.
"I mean we are a Marxist-Leninist organization, we do believe in class war, we believe that class war is the way forward. As we see right now peaceful protests aren’t getting us much, we need a new society," she stated.
Campus Reform contacted Syracuse University and both chapters for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.
