Showdown Looms

Stand With Standing Rock

There is a showdown looming at Standing Rock  Indian Reservation in the Dakotas.  Thousands of Native American Indians, along with supporters, have been camping out there. They have been protesting the installation of an oil pipeline that gravely threatens the water that Native people and thousands of others in the area depend on, and violates Indian treaty rights. Hundreds have been arrested and hundreds more have stood up to beatings, macings, high-powered water hoses in sub-freezing weather, and unending harassment and insult.

Now the Army of Corps of Engineers has vowed to arrest anyone who remains in the camp past Monday, December 5. Here we see Obama once more extending his "hand of unity" to the fascist Donald Trump-taking upon himself the ugly business of violently repressing this righteous struggle and thereby relieving Trump of getting his own hands bloody.
The Native people cannot be left to face this alone. The environment cannot withstand yet another insult. It is on everyone-every revolutionary, every radical or progressive, everyone with a beating heart and a working conscience-to stand up for the Standing Rock Sioux and the water protectors.

Revolution Clubs should immediately choose
Do you know anyone else-any person or organization that has managed to bring forth and actual PLAN for radically different society, in all its dimensions, and a CONSTITUTION to codify all this? - A different world IS possible - Check out and order online the Constitution for a New Socialist Republic of North America (Draft Propposal).Authored by Bob Avakian and adopted by the Central Committee of the RCP

representatives and organize solidarity delegations to go to Standing Rock. The Revolution Club members should bring enough XXXL "REVOLUTION-NOTHING LESS!" T-shirts for the many people who may want to wear them and represent for revolution (you'll need XXXL to wear over the down coats that you're gonna need). Once there, Club members should act as a unified force, standing with the people to prevent this towering injustice from going down. Clubs and Party supporters should step up in every city to work with and participate in solidarity demonstrations, especially but not only on the 5th and the days leading up to it. These must extend to religious communities, the campuses, and in the neighborhoods.

The insult of issuing this order on the day after Thanksgiving-a day that commemorates an exchange between Native people and the invading Europeans, and that set off a bloody four-century genocidal trail of tears-was noted by the tribal leader Dave Archambault II.

The truth is this: America Was Never Great! Only a revolution-a genuine communist revolution that aims to institute the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America as its framework-can end the oppression suffered by the Native peoples, as well as other oppressed nationalities, and can end the insane plunder of the environment by the capitalists. Battles like the one in Standing Rock can be and must increasingly be built as part of strengthening the movement to make that revolution. And in the shadow of the looming fascism of Trump, the struggle for the basic justice of the demands of the water protectors in Standing Rock takes on even greater significance.

The whole world will be watching to see what the people of this country are going to do. What happens in Standing Rock will set terms one way or the other going into
 perilous times. Be part of making sure they are the right terms

BA's works and vision needed more than ever #GivingTuesday

We hope this finds you well.   We are enclosing here a request from The Bob Avakian Institute to contribute on this #GivingTuesday to its mission to project and promote the works and vision of Avakian throughout society.  At this dangerous time in the world, with Trump's fascist America looming, this is needed more than ever.  

In addition, we strongly encourage you to read and share this statement from 

Let us know if you want to schedule a time to talk and the best way to reach you.
I am writing you at an incredibly dangerous time for the future of humanity. In light of the serious threats toward a fascist America, there is an even greater need for the work of The Bob Avakian Institute to have impact and reach nowMake a contribution, this #GivingTuesday, to make this possible.
The new synthesis of communism, that Avakian has developed, provides the scientifically grounded understanding that a whole different, and far better, world is possible. Exactly when so much is at stake for humanity, we cannot afford to think small... we cannot afford to have our sights lowered or to have the terms set by the world as it is - with all the horrors that means for humanity.
As just one example, watch this video clip right now. Think of what a contrast this voice, vision and challenge is to what predominates today: "What if...?"
More than ever, people throughout society need to know about and engage Bob Avakian's vision and work. Avakian has developed an understanding of what it will take to get to a radically different world - the scientific method to approach this, a deep analysis of the problem in the system of capitalism-imperialism, the strategic approach to making an actual revolution, the concrete vision and framework for a radically different society to bring about real emancipation. As part of this, he provides an incredibly farsighted analysis of why we're in the situation we're in now, including the dynamics that have gone into the rise of a powerful fascist movement in the US, and what must and must not be done to forge a way out. Avakian has further developed, and fought for, a morality and resistance in line with what is required for human emancipation. And his work challenges people to live by and fight for all this today. This whole new synthesis of communism represents a revolution in human thought.
In the face of a dark and deadly program of white supremacy, xenophobia, patriarchy, outright repressive rule and expanded surveillance, war and torture... there is even greater urgency in Avakian's vision and work being known, engaged and debated in every corner of society.Your contribution - right now - can make this possible.
* Contribute for The New Communism to reach the campuses, inner cities and more... to reach all those who are agonizing about the state of the world but need as the subtitle of the book says, "the science, the strategy and the leadership for an actual revolution, and a radically new society on the road to real emancipation."
Contribute towards the advertising and promotion of two pieces by BA: Bob Avakian on the Right-Wing Agenda - The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy... And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer; and The Fascists and the Destruction of the "Weimar Republic"...And What Will Replace It. These prescient pieces by BA shed a great deal of light on the current political juncture: it's roots, its dynamics, and what must be done in response. When so many are looking for answers in all the wrong places, these works provide clarity and depth that you will find nowhere else.
* Contribute for a speakers bureau to take this understanding throughout society and argue for it, with sharpness and substance. Invite us to your school, classroom, book club, church, professional association, or host a fundraising salon in your living room. Put this in front of groups of people who need to hear about and engage with the new synthesis of communism - and open up a great debate about Avakian's analysis of the source of the problem in this system and the need for an actual, all the way revolution. Contribute for travel funds and promotion.
I'd also love to hear from you if you'd like to volunteer for The BA Institute and if you have any further thinking on what we need to be doing right now to carry out our mission
If you care about the future of humanity... if you are agonizing about the state of the world and its dangerous direction... CONTRIBUTE so that the new synthesis of communism, and Bob Avakian's body of work, the answers and challenge this provides and the inspiration and scientifically grounded hope this can engender, can reach everywhere.

November 9, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper |
Donald Trump has now won the presidency. Under the slogan "Make America Great Again," he has viciously attacked Mexicans and Muslims, threatened to deport millions and boasted that he will build walls and close borders. He incites people to fear and hate those who are "different," or who come from other countries or nationalities, or practice different religions. He crudely demeans and degrades women, and openly boasts about molesting them. He's a champion of white supremacy who has insulted and threatened Black people, and whipped up a racist lynch-mob mentality. Trump has mocked the disabled.  He is an aggressive and unapologetic militarist, who threatens to use nuclear weapons and will have his fingers on the nuclear codes. He openly advocates war crimes and crimes against humanity -- including torture and killing the families of people accused of terrorism. He plans to pack the Supreme Court with justices who will gut and reverse the right to abortion, gay rights, and other important legal rights. He calls climate change a hoax and his policies will wreak further devastation on the environment. He has attacked and threatened the press and stirred up his supporters to do the same. Trump has utter contempt for facts and the truth, and consistently lies to advance his agenda. As for the rule of law, Trump went so far as to openly threaten his opponent, Hillary Clinton, not only with jail, but even assassination. Donald Trump is an outright fascist. And he is now the president-elect.

Fascism is a very serious thing. Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, and the aggressive reinstitution of oppressive "traditional values." Fascism feeds on and encourages the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. Fascism, once in power, essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights. Fascism attacks, jails, and executes its opponents, and launches violent mob attacks on "minorities." In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and '40s, under Hitler, fascism did all these things. They imprisoned millions in concentration camps and exterminated millions of Jews, Roma people (Gypsies), and other "undesirables." And Hitler did almost all of this through the established institutions and the "rule of law." This is where this goes. And yes, Hitler himself could "talk graciously" when he felt it would serve his interests and lull his opponents.

Trump did not even win the popular vote, (even though he did win the "electoral college" which decides elections in the U.S.). Hitler himself came to power through democratic procedures, including through the process of elections. Should people have accepted Hitler?! Unfortunately, they did, at a horrific cost to humanity. Today, with nuclear weapons, that cost could be far higher.  

In the name of humanity, we must refuse to accept a fascist America!

The fact that Trump won as many votes as he did must be understood. The fact that he got more than even 10 percent of the vote is disgraceful and reveals some very ugly things about America. So why did this happen? The world today is turbulent, full of changes. Those who supported Trump's fascist program were overwhelmingly sections of white people, especially but not only white men, who yearn for the days of open white supremacy and American global domination, and the blatant subjugation of women. A significant minority of white people did oppose him, but we have to confront how deep the racism, the national chauvinism, and the hatred of women is woven into this society... and not give in to this, but vigorously challenge and fiercely oppose it. 

But even more than this, Trump was backed by powerful forces in this society. Beyond those who directly supported him, the media, the Democratic Party, and others treated him as a legitimate candidate, refused to call him out as the fascist he is, and now call on everyone to accept his ascension to power. All the major powerful forces in this society bear the responsibility -- it is they who have, over decades, either built up this fascist force or have "enabled" it.

You cannot try to "wait things out" with fascists. Those who lived through Hitler's Germany and sat on the sidelines, looking on as Hitler rounded up one group after another, became shameful collaborators with monstrous crimes against humanity. Trump and his regime must be resisted and defied, beginning now, in many different ways and in every corner of society. 

Reconciliation and collaboration would be nothing less than criminal and deadly. Literally. Come together... resist... and let the whole world know that we will not allow this to stand!
