Donate and Call Now to Free 3 Revolution Club Members in LA

Received from the Revolution Club Los Angeles:

Three members of the Revolution Club in LA were outrageously arrested for going out to a public park and talking to people about revolution.

Call the LAPD Metropolitan Detention Center at 213 356-3448.  Tell them to release the Revolution Club members now.  
PROTEST and PRESS CONFERENCE
6pm TONIGHT


Normandie Park
1527 Normandie Avenue

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.

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!

When the crew didn't return to our organizing center and weren't answering their phones, one of us went down to the park to investigate and ask people if they had seen people in BA Speaks: REVOLUTION--Nothing Less! t-shirts passing out the pamphlet. Someone eventually told us that they had been arrested and they directed us to the person who would know more.  When approached and asked if she knew more about the Revolution Club members and the arrests she smugly replied that the police arrested them because "They weren't listening...they were going around talking to people while the program was going on." So we asked, "They were arrested for talking to people at a public park?"  She responded, "Well, the things they were saying were inappropriate anyways."

The Revolution Club has been going out broadly getting out and getting into the pamphlet HOW WE CAN WIN--How We Can Really Make Revolution with people.  This is an historic document that not only calls out the on monstrousness and utter unreformability of this system, it also lays out how people can get organized now into the movement for an actual revolution to bring something far better into being. This is something the armed enforcers, who constantly murder and brutalize people, do not want to see connected up with those this system has no future for. They seized on this opportunity to go after the forces who actually do represent the interest of the masses of people, with these blatantly obvious illegitimate arrests.

The members of the Revolution Club are being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown LA, charged with "trespassing" (602.1 pc) at a park that was purposefully open to the public all night long.

This is a violation of people's legal rights and the people will not tolerate the authorities to arrest people for merely TALKING about the fight for a better world in a public space.

We're told by the LAPD Asst. Watch Commander at MDC that two of them are being held in "padded cells" because they didn't answer questions, including by medical personnel in the jail!  There is a potentially dangerous logic to this type of confinement - the revolutionaries need to get out of jail and be back on the streets right away.

Call the LAPD Metropolitan Detention Center at 213 356-3448.  Tell them to release the Revolution Club members now.

The police are refusing to release the three on their own recognizance and have set bail at $5,000 each!  Donate for BAIL and a DEFENSE FUND: tinyurl.com/fundtherevolution.

The Michael Slate Show: Ann Wright, Attack on Freedom Flotilla; Ilan Pappe, Israeli Assaults on Gaza & the "Jewish Nation State" Bill

Tune in Friday, August 3, 10 - 11 AM, Pacific Time
KPFK 90.7 FM, kpfk.org
Ann Wright, the Violent Seizure of Gaza Freedom Flotilla Ship Al Awda, by Israeli Soldiers

Ann Wright joins us to talk about the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, and the attack on one of the ships, the Al Awda, by Israeli soldiers in international waters, and the kidnapping of those on the ship. The vessel was attempting to deliver food and medical supplies to Gaza, which has been under siege by Israel since 2007. Ann Wright is an activist and a former US ambassador. 



Historian and Author Ilan Pappe on Israel's Genocidal Assaults on Gaza, and the Israeli "Jewish Nation State" Basic Law.

 Israeli forces have shot over 1000 non-violent Palestinian protesters since March 30, killing 152. Israel has continued not only its deadly assaults, but the destruction of the infrastructure, making food and clean water increasingly hard to get. This is incremental genocide. At the same time, the Israeli legislature has made a new basic law, granting Jewish people rights that do not apply to others, and embracing settlements as "a national value."

Ilan Pappe will talk about all this. Ilan Pappe has published fifteen books on the Middle East, including The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. He is the director of the European Center of Palestine Studies, University of Exeter. 
Support The Michael Slate Show and KPFK. Call 818-985-5735 or go online at kpfk.org. You can request one of these thank-you gifts:
 FOR A  CONTRIBUTION OF $75, TEN MYTHS ABOUT ISRAEL, BY ILAN PAPPE. In this groundbreaking and fearless book, published on the fiftieth anniversary of the Occupation, the outspoken and radical Israeli historian Ilan Pappe examines the most contested ideas concerning the origins and identity of the contemporary state of Israel.

















FOR A CONTRIBUTION OF $120, "KILLING GAZA," A FILM BY MAX BLUMENTHAL AND DAN COHEN.

"Killing Gaza" is much more than a documentary about Palestinian resilience and suffering. It is a chilling visual document of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony and evidence from the survivors, delivered to them often just days after escaping indiscriminate shelling, bombings and summary executions.

Edward Tabash, board chair of the Center for Inquiry, on the Extreme Danger for Humanity of Putting Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court

Edward Tabash recently wrote of the danger represented by the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh (left) to the US Supreme Court, and the need for people to stand up and oppose it. He focuses on Kavanaugh's repeated efforts to allow government to officially promote religion, and end the separation of Church and State.

Edward Tabash is a Constitutional Lawyer in Los Angeles and Chair of the Board of Directors of the Center for Inquiry. He has filed amicus briefs arguing for the preservation of the separation of church and state with the United States Supreme Court and the California Supreme Court.

Author Leni Zumas, Red Clocks, a Novel Set in an America Where Abortion is Illegal

Leni Zumas joins us to talk about her novel, Red Clocks. Set in a dystopian alternative reality where abortion, in-vitro fertilization and other reproductive rights have been abolished. It is a reality that is a few short steps away from the present. It follows the lives of five women in a small Oregon town, examining what it means to be a woman in a world that seeks to constrict and control women's lives based on their biology.

Leni Zumas is an author and associate professor at Portland State University.
