COMING JUNE 8-9 -- A WEEKEND OF REVOLUTION

From revcom.us:

WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?

We strongly recommend this article originally posted at www.revcom.us

When is enough enough?
We could begin this article by talking how, once again, America plunged yet deeper into full-out fascism in this past week. And it would be true. And all too many people would nod and go, “Yeah, that’s messed up,” and they would turn on Game of Thrones or the NBA playoffs or even one of the “woke” shows.
And that would be it. Another week of going deeper into fascism in the most dangerous powerful nation and military in human history. And it’s ho fucking hum, turn the page.
Yet the reality IS that the Trump/Pence regime DID take the country and the world deeper into fascism. Fascism. Fascism.
So, again—when is enough, enough?  Read more.

This week:

Lenny Wolff and Tala Deloria will talk about the Get Organized For An Actual Revolution National Tour, and the Upcoming Event at UCLA

Lenny Wolff and Tala Deloria will join us to talk about the upcoming speaking event, Monday May 20, at UCLA, for the Get Organized For An Actual Revolution National Tour. They'll be talking about the tour, and why the system must be overthrown. 

"There is nothing more unrealistic than the idea of reforming this system into something that would come anywhere near being in the interests of the great majority of people and ultimately of humanity as a whole."

Bob Avakian BAsics 3:2
 


Max Felker-Kantor, author of Policing Los Angeles: Race, Resistance, and the Rise of the LAPD

We'll hear part of an interview with Max Felker-Kantor, author of Policing Los Angeles, which tells the story of the LAPD from the Watts Rebellion of 1965, to the 1992 Spring Rebellion. When the Los Angeles neighborhood of Watts erupted in violent protest in August 1965, the uprising drew strength from decades of pent-up frustration with employment discrimination, residential segregation, and poverty. But the more immediate grievance was anger at the racist and abusive practices of the Los Angeles Police Department. Yet in the decades after Watts, the LAPD resisted all but the most limited demands for reform made by activists and residents of color, instead intensifying its power.

YOU'RE INVITED: "WHY WE NEED AN ACTUAL REVOLUTION..."

From the National Revolution Tour:

The Bob Avakian Institute and
The National Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution Tour

invite you to a film screening of Part 1 of

Saturday, May 11, 1 - 3 pm
AFIBA Center

5730 Crenshaw Boulevard
(by Crenshaw and Slauson)

“...we have two choices: either, live with all this—and condemn future generations to the same, or worse, if they have a future at all—ormake revolution!

—Bob Avakian

WHO IS BOB AVAKIAN?

Bob Avakian, BA, is the most radical revolutionary on the planet. He's developed the new communism and has written a Constitution for a New Socialist Republic in North America, a sweeping and concrete vision and "blueprint" for day one after the revolution.

BA has developed answers to why this system can't be reformed... how revolutionary forces could grow from weak to strong, and actually defeat the enemy... how people could then build a new society on the road to emancipating all of humanity throughout the world... and how to wage the struggles of today to reach that goal.

BA has done decades of work to develop the scientific method we need to make the revolution we need and to bring into being a radically new world without exploitation and the antagonisms that keep people divided. BA breaks down why reality is the way it is, and how people can change it for the better. He has never lost sight of the potential of the most oppressed to become emancipators of humanity.

BA has developed the strategy and plan for how to go for an actual revolution... understanding the strengths of this system, but also its strategic weaknesses... and making that revolution with the whole world in mind. He is leading the movement for revolution today to get organized to make that revolution at the soonest possible time.

BA's leadership is a huge strength for the revolution: to follow, to learn from, to defend.

Those this system has cast off, those it has treated as less than human, can be the backbone and driving force of a fight not only to end their own oppression, but to finally end all oppression, and emancipate all of humanity.
