On April 18, Rumec was economically and morally destabilized with the deportation of Comrade Miguel Suarez to his native Mexico. With a successful construction business growing, assuming the leadership of the new labor movement and establishing a non-profit organization, Miguel Suarez was expelled from this country just moments before being exonerated of minor charges at traffic court in Santa Clara County.

For over 10 years, Miguel has been at the forefront of the Mexican struggle, establishing strong bonds with the Black community and creating an environment for oppressed groups to establish business connections as well as maintaining a revolutionary agenda.
Upon his arrival in the U.S. at the age of 18 about 12 years ago, Miguel had ambitions of becoming an independent business owner. From a labor element of the construction industry, Comrade Miguel grew to become a business owner who employed friends, family members and local community individuals. His alternative form of doing business allowed for his growth to acquire resources that were once unclaimed by his community. His acquisition of the historical building Cine Mexico, a community theater, is a symbol of his constant growth as a successful business owner.

Rumec was economically and morally destabilized with the deportation of Comrade Miguel Suarez to his native Mexico.

Maintaining a business was not the ultimate goal for Comrade Miguel. His observation of the necessity of organizing and educating our labor force was the purpose he felt obligated to fulfill. Miguel took leadership of the new labor movement – assigning people various duties, organizing the community and orienting everyone to the oppressive circumstances we face. His representation of our people was driven from a sense of duty and obligation to a fair and just cause. Leading and educating our people was Miguel’s daily task.

The Olmec “heads,” huge stone sculptures created earlier than 900 B.C. depicting kings with African features, demonstrate the presence of Africans in Central America long before Columbus “discovered” America. This one is in Veracruz, Mexico. The mixture of Black and Brown blood began long before Spanish conquistadores brought enslaved Africans to Mexico.
Liberating our oppressed labor force from corporate neo-liberalism was a passion that Miguel Suarez shared not only with Mexican groups, but also with the Black community. Being a believer of Black and Brown unity, Comrade Miguel educated us about the common African roots and heritage we share. Native to the land of the Olmecs and inspired by Yanga, Miguel promoted merging Brown and Black community business to liberate ourselves from economic slavery. Through music, art, public speaking and business ownership, Miguel had the passion to reach out and employ both oppressed groups.

Miguel took leadership of the new labor movement – assigning people various duties, organizing the community and orienting everyone to the oppressive circumstances we face.

With an insatiable appetite to educate and assist our people, Comrade Miguel was in the process of establishing a non-profit organization. By providing architectural forums in Spanish and English, informing workers of current construction codes and educating construction laborers on their rights in the industry, Comrade Miguel was providing a service to our community. This very same service, which our government is not providing for the people, is the basis of the non-profit in the construction industry. His idea was to prepare our people and arm them with knowledge to fight the ignorance and poverty that floods our streets.
Gaspar Yanga
Yanga, a towering figure in Mexican history, is said to have been a member of the royal family of Gabon when he was stolen and carried to Mexico. After leading a rebellion, freeing himself and other Africans, they established a maroon colony near Veracruz around 1570. After many battles with Spanish troops, Yanga’s terms were accepted in 1618, giving his people the right to their land and independence.
The absence of Miguel Suarez in the movement has been felt by all his comrades. He was always creating an environment where people could meet and voice their opinion with the benefit of others in mind. He is the type of individual who reads people and can suggest how you may contribute to a common cause. His ideas ranged from educating our youth, developing independent business owners, establishing our own bank, financing the building of our own homes and establishing our own educational institutions.
Miguel Suarez was a threat to the system imposed on us. His vision went so far as changing the criminal mindset of people to a revolutionary business oriented way of thinking. This plan would ultimately fight the system that focuses on enslaving the mind of our men and women.

The absence of Miguel Suarez in the movement has been felt by all his comrades.

As a respected businessman, leader of a movement and father, Miguel Suarez will be missed in the community. The struggle will continue with his plan carried out by myself, Juan Ruiz, and comrades in the company. Now working with him internationally, Rumec will continue to carry on his legacy and educate our community on forming independent businesses. At the same time, we will fight ceaselessly to return Comrade Miguel Suarez to the community and family who need him.

  2. The body of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of American activist Malcolm X, remains at the Institute of Forensic Sciences in Mexico DF because there has not been any person present to claim the body. Please notice to his family.

  3. One can’t help but question the official narrative of the recent news of Malcolm Shabazz’s death in Mexcio City. At the time of his demise, he was in Mexico with Miguel Suarez of RUMEC (Revolutionary United Mexicans in Combat), an organization founded to “[fight] corporate oppression, ignorance and poverty through construction.” According to Malcolm, Suarez spent a decade “at the forefront of the Mexican struggle, establishing strong bonds with the Black community and creating an environment for oppressed groups to establish business connections as well as maintaining a revolutionary agenda.”

    Malcolm Shabbaz was obviously in Mexico with a revolutionary agenda. Additionally, the man was being actively harassed by the FBI and placed on terrorist watch lists in America. While en route to the Hollywoodism conference in Iran “to discuss the impact of Hollywood in stereotyping Muslims, Iranians and African people,” he was arrested by FBI agents, and so there is really no denying that he was under aggressive surveillance.

    While reports have surfaced that Malcolm was murdered in a fight stemming from an attempt to collect a inflated account, something doesn’t add up. Reading through his personal blog, it is obvious that he was insightful, charismatic, and inspired by his grandfather. Did he pose too much of a threat to the establishment to let live? Was the Grandson of Malcolm X Assassinated? http://www.whoismoses.com/rap/moses-malcolm-x-shabazz-hip-hop-worldstar/

  4. Malcolm wanted the Black and Latino communities, unite their efforts to fight oppression and poverty, Miguel IS NOT responsible for his death. Malcolm had warned his murder since March, said so on his blog in March. He wished to accompany Miguel to Mexico and support him in his struggle from his homeland, looking make people aware both in the United States America, and Mexico, as well as African Americans. Mexico also has a third root, African blood is present in his mixed for over three hundred years. Malcolm was undergoing a positive transformation for himself and his comrades, like his grandfather. There is a hidden agenda that is leading by bad press, which black and Latino communities meet for the murder of Malcolm Shabazz. Mexicans are not responsible for his death, were the right circumstances, bad luck and opportunism of those who wanted him dead since he espoused and came first Shiite Islamic countries and then Latino communities. He was becoming a danger to the oligarchic and imperialist establishment. Malcolm Shabazz had begun the road to seriously struggle against imperialism, he was reborn in the path of Malik. If not assassinated...

  10. I just attempted to read the FB message/link that you sent to The Malcolm Shabazz Memorial Page and it's like trying to make sense out of nonsense.

    First Miguel says: ",i gat in the ambulence with him,i clens his blood with my hands,i gat inside emergency room with him i oder the bets treatment i hug malcolm hand i tell the nurse please save him she respond malcolm will be fine let us work".

    Then he turns around and says: "i dindt see wht they did to malcolm but i seen malcom all mees up in the floor,arroun 2 in the morning the lady from the police tell me not to leave the station couse my safe, i dint trust anyone so i put all my faith in the taxi cab driver wich i own him my life".

    So which one is it? Did he get in the ambulance with Bro. Malcolm and clean his blood with his hands OR did he not see what they did to Malcolm???

    Man, I don't have time for lies or confusion.

    THE MOST HIGH IS WATCHING and THE TRUTH WILL COME TO THE LIGHT.

    THE LONGER IT TAKES, THE HARDER IT WILL HIT!

  12. Too Bad- So Sad. He should have tried to be an individual instead of imitating his grandfather's photos. He could never be a Malcolm X but maybe he could have been something else.
