Discuss and debate: The problem is not “gun violence.” The problem is this white supremacist, capitalist-imperialist system, and it must be overthrown.

Fact #1: The Second Amendment was about the “right” of white men to put down slave rebellions and exterminate Native peoples.

Fact #2: The NRA is not a “gun rights” organization. It is a fascist organization, arming white people for a race war.

Fact #3: More police in schools means more violence against Black and Brown youths.

April 20, Friday, 7 pm
Movie night: Bethune: The Making of a Hero. This award-winning 1990 film, starring Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren, depicts the story of Norman Bethune, an anti-fascist and communist doctor who went to China in the 1930s to serve the revolution in the heat of the battlefield.
