As Polarization Sharpens, Revolution Club Organizing Tour Hits New York
November 28, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
In the wake of the victory of Donald Trump, the campaign to organize thousands of new people into the movement for an actual revolution is all the more urgent and high stakes.
In our time in Chicago and Cleveland, the National Tour has taken out the pamphlet "HOW WE CAN WIN—How We Can Really Make Revolution" very broadly—particularly to the ghettoes where many Black youths are caught up in fighting and killing each other. We've learned much more deeply about what attracts many to this revolution, but also about the obstacles—practically as well as ideologically—that must be overcome as we've worked to organize people into this revolution. We've gained strength by going right up in the face of the Trumpites in Cleveland. And, in an even more intense way, in Mt. Greenwood Chicago where hundreds of white residents had gathered in a modern-day lynch mob to celebrate the police murder of Joshua Beal. We got out in the streets with those rising up to say #NotMyPresident and dug into this revolution with students on the campuses.
This December, as Revolution Clubs across the country step up their efforts in this Organizing Campaign, the National Tour will be focusing our efforts in New York City. We will work with the NYC Revolution Club to spread "HOW WE CAN WIN" and "In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America," and to organize people into this revolution from the hardest streets as well as from the most elite campuses. We will stand with everyone rising up against Trump, representing as we do for the real revolution. We'll boldly promote the leadership and work of Bob Avakian and THE NEW COMMUNISM and dig into this more deeply with each other and those we are meeting. We'll spread revolution in the city's vibrant artistic and cultural scenes, and help make Revolution Books the place where people from all of these scenes come to wrangle over big ideas and to connect with the movement for revolution. We will bring alive—in our agitation, in how we conduct ourselves, and in what we actively promote and recruit others into—the six Points of Attention for the Revolution that embody revolutionary morality and authority.
Through this all, we will continue to report on the lessons and advances as well as the challenges we are confronting in the pages of this website. We urge everyone who wants to see this revolution grow to donate generously to these efforts here and to write to us with your ideas and your desire to participate here: email@example.com.
