The Looming Threat of #Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court with Sunsara Taylor. Plus, Water Defenders Resist Bayou Bridge Pipeline with Journalist Jen Marlowe

Sunsara Taylor on The Looming Threat of the Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Why People Must Stand Up Now to Stop It, and Why We Need a Real Revolution


The Trump/Pence regime has already done shocking damage, from Trump’s Muslim Ban to his open encouragement of murderous white supremacists and Nazis; from his flippant threats of nuclear annihilation to his vile misogyny, threats against the media, and even tearing immigrant children from parents. Now, with the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Trump/Pence regime is poised to impose an extreme and long-lasting transformation of the highest court in this country—a major leap in the consolidation of fascism. This must be stopped!

Sunsara Taylor, writer for revcom.us/Revolution Newspaper, and a co-initiator of Refuse Fascism, joins us to talk about the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings: the danger Kavanaugh represents, the determined and righteous protest, inside and outside the hearing room, the role of the Democrats, and the kind of resistance we need. 

Water Protectors Resist the Bayou Bridge Pipeline

Jen Marlowe, award-winning author/documentary filmmaker/playwright and human 
rights activist, has been reporting on the struggle to stop the Bayou Bridge Pipeline in Louisiana. This is the last segment of the Dakota Access Pipeline, with all its danger to nearby residents, and to life on the planet.

The activists are part of the L'Eau Est La Vie ("Water Is Life") camp, in Rayne, Louisiana. They have faced repression from the pipeline developer, Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), from local authorities, and from local authorities "moonlighting" for ETP. They have responded with determination and creativity.

STOP the Appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court!

This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
In the Name of Humanity,
We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!

The Trump/Pence regime has already done shocking damage: from Trump’s Muslim Ban to his open encouragement of murderous white supremacists and Nazis; from his flippant threats of nuclear annihilation to his vile misogyny, threats against the media, and even tearing immigrant children from parents. If left in power, the Trump/Pence regime will effect a thoroughly reactionary restructuring of society. Nothing short of removing this entire regime will stop this nightmare. (From the RefuseFascism.org Call to Action)

Now, with the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Trump/Pence regime is poised to impose an extreme and long-lasting transformation of the highest court in this country—a major leap in the consolidation of fascism.

This must be stopped!

It’s not just that Kavanaugh would eviscerate women’s fundamental right to decide for themselves whether to bear children, which alone would be reason enough for millions to rise in massive political revolt. With Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court would be a rubber stamp to the whole Trump/Pence agenda: shredding the separation of church and state in favor of Christian fascism against women, LGBTQ people, science, and the environment; backing xenophobic ethnic cleansing of immigrants and terror against Black people to “Make America WHITE Again”; eviscerating civil liberties, the separation of powers, and the rule of law; unleashing even more vicious torture and military aggression against the people of the world.

The time to act is NOW—this nomination must be STOPPED! If Trump is allowed to consolidate a fascist Supreme Court, we will be fighting on much more difficult and dangerous ground. And if this goes down without a huge social battle to STOP it, we will be fighting under conditions where accommodation, not resistance, has greater initiative.

We must put ourselves on the line—through acts of nonviolent political protest and courageous resistance—to stop this confirmation.

Most of all, we must do this in a way that builds the unity and strength needed to launch a nationwide struggle beginning with tens of thousands in cities across the country that continue day after day and DO NOT STOP until the demand—This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!—is met. All who want to fight for a better future need to forge the unity to stop this fascism before it is too late.

WE PLEDGE that we will not stand aside while there is still a chance to stop a regime that imperils humanity and the Earth itself. Join us. Let’s stand together with conviction and courage, overcoming fear and uncertainty, to struggle with all we’ve got to demand: The Trump/Pence regime Must Go!

The Los Angeles City Attorney has just criminally charged 11 members of Refuse Fascism, including numerous members of the Revolution Club in LA, an Iraq War vet, as well as a noted artist and USC professor. This is a serious attack on the movement against fascism.

Hauled out of a public event for confronting the Trump/Pence Regime’s Steve Mnuchin at UCLA – and now facing criminal charges.

The multiple misdemeanor charges stem from two actions on the 101 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles and from arrests originating from a public challenge to the fascist Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin at UCLA. All these actions were sounding the alarm about a fascist regime, and aimed to build a movement to drive out the regime.

Two more defendants have their arraignment this Wednesday, These 2 defendants are facing "Conspiracy" charges! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! come stand with these brave leaders in the movement to drive out the Trump/Pence FASCIST Regime!
Listen to an interview with Michelle Xai and Perry Hoberman from the Los Angeles chapter of Refuse Fascism on the Michael Slate show talking about what’s behind these criminal charges, and the stakes of defending the people facing criminal charges in the context of building a movement to drive out the Trump/Pence Regime. Listen and share through Soundcloud.

Court Support - 3 Revolutionaries Arrested at Public Park

Thursday, Sept. 6th, 8:30 - 11:30 AM
210 W. Temple St., Los Angeles 90012

Revolution Club Los Angeles Members Outrageously Arrested for Talking About Revolution at a Public Park!

On Friday, August 10, 2018, three members of the LA Revolution Club went out to Normandie Park during a Summer Night Lights event. These are summer events where the police act like they're doing masses of people who live around these parks a favor by keeping the lights on a little longer and not running them out of the park. They prop up an “official staff” to make it seem as if people being allowed to stay in the park after dark is something to celebrate and be thankful to the police for.

When three members of the Revolution Club showed up to talk to people about the criminal and murderous nature of this system and the need to overthrow it, a petty overseer found this "inappropriate" and called on the cops there to remove the members of the Revolution Club—FROM A PUBLIC PARK!
