Proposed New Immigration Law:
An Ominous Leap in Repression and the Need for Resistance
"I'm 24 years old. In two months it will be two decades of living in this country illegally. I'm the youngest of five and came to the U.S. with my mother in 1993. We had nothing in Mexico and the only way we were getting through was by my father who was already in the U.S. to send us money. When we arrived two years later my father got deported. My mother worked in the fields picking tomatoes, green peppers, and strawberries so we could eat. It was still not enough. My older brother and sister, who were only 12 and 13 years old when we came to the U.S., had to give up their education and help my mother work. I can't thank them enough for their sacrifice that led to the three youngest in the family to proudly graduate with a high school diploma. I have never felt like an 'American.' To me being an American means having freedom. Free to be whatever you work hard for and always having a fair shot and not being held back by your race, gender or sexuality. In my case it's my illegal status that keeps me down and unable to better my life. To ICE I'm a criminal for being brought to this country when I was five years old."-

After the May Day Marches,
Come to Revolution Books to Discuss
Wed., May 1st, 7 PM
"Slave rebellion or slave master? Do you support the oppressed rising up against the oppressive system and seeking a radically different way, even with certain errors and excesses-or do you support the oppressors, and the leaders and guardians of an outmoded oppressive order, who may talk about "inalienable rights" but bring down wanton brutality and very real terror, on masses of people, to enforce and perpetuate their system of oppression?"

Benefit performance at Revolution Books of The Agony & the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs
written by Mike Daisey
Performed by Alex Lyras
Sat., April 27th, 7 PM
We are excited to host this dynamic solo performance which follows the trail all the way to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPads, shining a light on the very human price we pay for our high-tech toys. You may have heard of Foxconn, the world's largest supplier of Apple products that responded to worker suicides in Shenzhen, China by putting up nets outside the buildings to catch people who jump off the roof!
The New York Times called the work, "Powerful, funny and engaging... Anyone with a cell phone and a moral center should see this show.
"I feel that this type of social activist theater - the kind that indicts and incites and inspires all in the same breath - is one of the most valuable things humankind has to offer." - Alex Lyras
Tickets are available on our blog - click the PayPal button at the top right-hand corner of this page or at Revolution Books. $20 ($10 for unemployed or students with current ID). Limited seating - buy your tickets now!
