See—and share—this talk, a film of Bob Avakian’s new talk addressing the most urgent question of the day: how to understand, and what to do about, the threat to humanity itself posed by the Trump/Pence regime. This talk—from the most radical revolutionary on the planet—makes the case for massive, sustained nonviolent outpourings. It traces the roots of the regime—the deeper and more immediate causes of its rise to power.
Set five years after the end of the Spanish Civil War, Pan’s Labyrinth encapsulates the rich visual style and genre-defying craft of director Guillermo del Toro. Eleven-year-old Ofelia comes face to face with the horrors of fascism when she and her pregnant mother are uprooted to the countryside, where her new stepfather, a sadistic captain in General Francisco Franco’s army, hunts down Republican guerrillas refusing to give up the fight. The violent reality in which Ofelia lives merges seamlessly with her fantastical interior world when she meets a faun in a decaying labyrinth and is set on a strange, mythic journey that is at once terrifying and beautiful.
Dr. George Tiller was the courageous doctor who provided abortions for women and was murderd by an anti-abortionist. He is was one of the few doctors in the U.S. who specialized in performing late-term abortions.
Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in May 2009, there are only four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions. After Tiller paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians - Dr. LeRoy Carhart, Dr. Warren Hern, Dr. Susan Robinson and Dr. Shelley Sella -who have become the new number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement, yet continue to risk their lives every day to do work that many believe is murder, but which they believe is profoundly important for their patients' lives. Intimate, thought-provoking, and and deeply moving, After Tiller provides an unprecedented look of one of the most incendiary topics of our time.
This film is more relevant than ever. The Trump/Pence regime is staffed from top to bottom with fanatical Christian fundamentalists who hate that women have won some measure of reproductive choice and social equality, and that open, forcible patriarchy has been weakened or eroded. And they are determined to reverse these trends with a vengeance and impose a theocratic form of fascism.We must NOT let that happen!This nightmarish future for half of humanity must be stopped! They must be driven from power through a sustained, mass upsurge demanding: This Nightmare Must End. The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
Here’s the evidence-based truth…
*The USA was built on the blood and the bones of enslaved Africans, and the plunder of peoples around the world.
*The wealth of the USA today has everything to do with the exploitation and oppression of people of other countries, especially the poor countries of the global south.
*This kind of language sanctions and has historically led to genocidal horrors.
*The people of the places Donald J. Trump calls “s***holes” have contributed immeasurably and inspiringly to the store of human knowledge and artistic achievement.
