DISCUSSION: Amidst great turmoil, great possibilities... 7pm, Wednesday 7-20-16

A Revolution Books political discussion

Amidst great turmoil,
great possibilities... 

Consider just a few of the things shaping this moment, here and around the world:
  • Cold-blooded police murder of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile and the necessary and powerful new wave of mass protests - which righteously continue after the incident where police were killed in Dallas.

  • The Presidential election of 2016, Trump vs. Clinton, with the Republican and Democratic conventions this week and next scheduled to legitimatize a fascist and a war criminal – the Revolution Club is in Cleveland raising “America was Never Great, We Need to Overthrow this System!”
It is very important that people rise up and refuse to accept the continual murder of people, particularly Black people as well as Latinos, by police—this, and the other outrages and atrocities continually perpetrated by this system (as concentrated in the 5 Stops), cannot go down without people fighting back and rocking back the powers-that-be. But this must be built toward revolution—an actual revolution that overthrows this system at the soonest possible time—because there is no solution to these outrages under this system, and as long as we live under this system, this will go on...and on. There is a way that we can make a real revolution— and bring into being a radically different and better society: we have the strategy, program, and leadership for this revolution, in the work of BA (Bob Avakian) and the Party he leads, the Revolutionary Communist Party. Everywhere we go, and in everything we do, even as we are continuing to learn more about it, we need to be spreading the word about this revolution far and wide, and organizing for this revolution, drawing people around and into the Revolution Clubs, on the basis of the statement from the RCP Central Committee.”   Revcom.us,  A Basic Point of Orientation
