November 4 It Begins
This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!



We stand on the edge of a deadly precipice. We are ruled by a bona fide fascist who is moving fast and hard to consolidate his regime. Should he succeed this will mean unprecedented suffering of many millions around the world.

On Nov 4th in over 20 cities across the country, protests demanding the ouster of the Trump/Pence Regime are planned.  RefuseFascism.org is launching a movement of growing mass non-violent political protests that will not stop until the demand is met:  The Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! (See the ad at left, which was printed in the New York Times on November 1.)

We'll hear from Andy Zee of RefuseFascism.org on the grave danger facing humanity, what is planned for November 4, and what's going on during the days and nights afterward.

We'll also talk with Perry Hoberman, from Refuse Fascism LA, about what's happening in Los Angeles on November 4 and beyond.

Lillian Hellman's Watch on the Rhine

We'll also have a conversation with Susan Loewenberg, producer of an LA Theatre Works production of a play by Lillian Hellman, Watch on the Rhine, scheduled to open in 2018. The story begins in 1940. A German-born engineer and his American wife visit family in Washington, DC. They have been deeply involved in anti-Fascist activities in Spain and Germany. When something happens that imperils The Resistance, the family unflinchingly chooses to take great risks, and make great sacrifices for the fight against fascism, putting aside any consideration of "my life," "my career."

Watch on the Rhine is both a lesson and a challenge to all living today.

THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America: A Better World IS Possible - A Talk by Bob Avakian

 
The film of Bob Avakian’s new speech addresses the most urgent question of the day: how to understand, and what to do about, the threat to humanity itself posed by the Trump/Pence regime. This talk—from the most radical revolutionary on the planet—makes the case for massive, sustained nonviolent outpourings to begin on November 4. It traces the roots of the regime—the deeper and more immediate causes of its rise to power. This hour-long speech is full of substance, and heart.

Ed Rampell on the 70TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATION OF THE HOLLYWOOD BLACKLIST - Un-American: A Reenactment of the HUAC Hearings

Friday evening, October 27, 2017, is the 70th anniversary of the start of the Hollywood Ten’s testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), which marked the beginning of the Hollywood Blacklist and McCarthyism. This was one of the most unjust, repressive eras in American history, enforcing censorship and trampling on constitutional rights.

This Friday evening, at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, Blacklist survivors, relatives of persecuted artists and contemporary progressive talents including, on a schedule permitting basis, Susan Sarandon, Jamie Cromwell, Mike Farrell, and via video Ed Asner and Lee Grant, will reenact the HUAC heaings.

The Writer's Guild Foundation, which is sponsoring the event, stated, "The goal of our HUAC hearings reenactment is to remind Americans about another despotic era in U.S. history when free speech rights were trampled on by HUAC and McCarthyism – so it never happens again."

We'll speak with one of the organizers, Ed Rampell, about this extraordinary event. Ed Rampell is a film historian, author and critic, and writer for Hollywood Progressive.

For more information on the program, go to the Writers Guild Foundation website
