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.

This is a DAY OF ACTION to support the historic prisoner-led protest against torture in California's prisons.  Rep. Tom Ammiano chairs the State Assembly's Public Safety Committee which will hold an informational hearing on conditions and policies of the Security Housing Units at Pelican Bay.

Come and support the courageous prisoners who staged a hunger strike in July and continue to struggle.

On July 1st, prisoners in the Security Housing Unit (SHU) at Pelican Bay State Prison in California started an indefinite hunger strike to protest inhumane & torturous conditions of their imprisonment. (Revolution article The Prisoner Hunger Strike: A Real Inspiration, A Real Beginning by Li Onesto) After more than 6,600 prisoners across a third of CA's prison system joined the strike, the CA Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation (CDCR)  agreed to review its gang validation & debriefing policies, and the prisoners won a few concessions. The prisoners in the Pelican Bay SHU representing the hunger strikers agreed to suspend the strike, giving the CDCR a few weeks to implement more substantial changes in response to the hunger strikers' five core demands.

The prisoners now need our support to make sure their voices are heard during this legislative hearing on August 23rd.
