STOP the Assault on Abortion Rights! Break ALL the Chains that Enslave Women! Video talk by Sunsara Taylor 6-29-15

STOP the Assault on Abortion Rights! Break ALL the Chains that Enslave Women! 
-Video of a Talk by Sunsara Taylor

Monday, June 29
Revolution Books
2425 Channing Way, Berkeley

An all-out assault on women's right to abortion is leaving 600-mile stretches between abortion clinics, and banning abortions at earlier and earlier points in the pregnancy. Why does it matter whether or not women have the right to abortion? Sunsara Taylor will bring a true picture of what it means to be living through a war on women, where all this comes from, and why the domination of women by men is not human nature. She will bring alive how a real revolution can liberate women and what must be done today to build the fight for real and lasting emancipation.
Sunsara Taylor is writer for Revolution newspaper and key initiator of End Pornography & Patriarchy: the Enslavement and Degradation of Women (StopPatriarchy.org)
This talk was given Thursday, June 25, in NYC, and this event is a video showing, sponsored by the organization Stop Patriarchy which is organizing protests on Wednesday July 1st.

Presentation and discussion on 
Constitution, Law, and Rights - in capitalist society and in the future socialist society, selections from the writings of Bob Avakian and excerpts from the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal) from the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

Many claim the U.S. Constitution is a model for all societies because it protects "freedom: and peoples' rights." Yet, under this system,  murder by police is rampant, millions of people are incarcerated, and there is not, and there can be no basic rights necessary for survival -- like a "right to eat." But why is this?

What role does the U.S. Constitution and legal system play in reinforcing exploitation and oppression?  How is it the legal underpinning of today's capitalist society?

Some accuse communism of stripping peoples' individual rights. But how does Bob Avakian's new synthesis of communism actually give far greater scope to human freedom and the protection of individual rights? What legal structure is outlined in the Constitution for a New Socialist Republic? 
In comparing and contrasting the concepts of constitution, law, and rights under both capitalism and socialism, what are the profound differences in social content and role?

Bring your thoughts and your comments to the discussion!

Screening of VESSEL TBA in July

TBA in July
Revolution Books
suggested donation $5-$10

Vessel documents the story of a young doctor, Rebecca Gomperts, who is  horrified by the realities created by anti-abortion laws around the world, and feels compelled to challenge this.  Her method: to provide abortions on a ship in offshore waters.

Her project, Women on Waves, faces governmental, religious, and military blockades.  But with each setback comes a more refined mission, until Rebecca realizes that she can use new technologies to bypass law - and train women to give themselves safe abortions using WHO-sanctioned protocols with pills.

We witness the creation of an underground network of emboldened, informed activists, working at the cutting edge of global reproductive rights, who trust women to handle abortion themselves.

Vessel premiered at South by Southwest Film Festival in 2014, winning the Audience Award for Documentary in Competition and a Special Jury Award for Political Courage, and has gone on to screen at over 230 festivals and community screenings worldwide to much acclaim.

We are showing this film in preparation for StopPatriarchy.org's "Summer 2015 - Take Patriarchy by Storm" campaign.  Join us and get involved!

Listen to Michael Slate's interviews with the director of "Vessel" and two young women from StopPatriarchy.
