(sliding scale donations at door)
On Tuesday, August 8th, Donald Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury and ... power the likes of which this world has never seen before," if North Korea again makes what Trump interprets to be a verbal threat.
Using the rhetoric of "Armageddon," Trump has in one threat directly put the world in the crosshairs of nuclear war. This is another level of brutality, bellicosity and insanity even for Trump. The danger we face cannot be overstated: this fascist president has now potentially put the very future of humanity in question.

Since Tuesday he has continued to threaten North Korea, tweeting on Friday that "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

As Refuse Fascism has stated, This Nightmare Must End - The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go.  This regime MUST be driven out. 
And this current threat must be immediately and resolutely opposed, in the streets and everywhere else.
Come Sunday at 6pm to a discussion of this urgent situation. Learn the unknown history of U.S. aggression and bullying against North Korea, what lies behind the madness of Trump's threats, and what people must do...  

WHITE LIGHT/BLACK RAIN, The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, film & discussion, Aug 10 Thurs. 7pm

film & discussion, Aug 10 Thurs. 7pm

At 8:15 am, on August 6, 1945, a blazing, million-degree fireball suddenly appeared just above the Japanese city of Hiroshima, instantly killing, burning alive, or vaporizing tens of thousands. The U.S. had just exploded the first nuclear bomb used on a population, killing between 140-150,000. On Aug. 9th another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, murdering 70,000.
WHITE LIGHT/BLACK RAIN by Director Steven Okazaki reveals the unimaginable destructive power of the bombs, the inconceivable suffering and extraordinary human resilience. 
Today the U.S. has enough nuclear weapons to equal 400,000 Hiroshimas. The U.S. is the only country that has ever used nuclear weapons in war, it has never said it was wrong to use them, and it has a policy justifying first use of nuclear weapons in future wars.  This is especially ominous under the Trump/Pence fascist regime with Trump's finger on the nuclear button. In the past weeks, Trump/Pence have threatened millions around the globe by deploying attack aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines to the Korean Peninsula, setting up the THAAD anti-missile defense system in South Korea and threatening Iran and other countries.

8-3-17 Presentaton & Discussion- A Communist analysis- Fascism - What it is, and what we must do

“Liberal bourgeois democracy, such as that represented by Clinton and Obama, and fascism, such as that represented by the Trump/Pence regime, are different forms of the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, that is, of the capitalist-imperialist class, exercising its rule and enforcing its system. This is what is essentially in common between bourgeois democracy (bourgeois dictatorship in the

“democratic” form) and fascism, even if they represent the rule of different sections of this same class. This is what was illustrated and manifested when Obama said of Trump soon after the election that ‘ultimately we are all on the same team,’ even with their sharp differences. “At the same time, fascism is an even more grotesque and openly murderous form of this same system, representing horrors for humanity and the planet, beyond what this system already inflicts every moment…”

“The imposition of different and more oppressive cohering norms in society, the escalated, violent, and viciously cruel attacks on sections of people, the trampling of civil and legal rights, the mobilization of violent fascist social bases, require, contribute to and are part of this dynamic and momentum of the fascist juggernaut. Precisely because of this dynamic, the scope and space for protest and even dissent is undermined by a fascist juggernaut on the move, with a constantly weakening basis for the masses of people to fight, to resist―even as the horrors of fascism accelerate and accentuate! “For these reasons above, the fascist regime needs to be DRIVEN OUT before it consolidates! This is the NECESSITY of the moment!” (“Some Points on Strategic Orientation for the Next Period” by the Central Committee, Revolutionary Communist Party, USA)
