"Million Moms March" Against Police Murder

Million Moms March, May 9, Washington, DC

On May 9, 2015, hundreds marched in Washington, DC, for the “Million Moms March.” The march was organized by Maria Hamilton and Mothers for Justice United. Maria Hamilton’s son, Dontre Hamilton, was murdered by Milwaukee police in 2014, shot 14 times after sleeping in a Milwaukee park. Like almost all other cases in the country, no charges have been filed against the cop. She and mothers of more than a dozen others, mostly Black, who were killed by police nationwide, together with a mixed crowd of several hundred, marched. Signs included faces of some of the thousands killed by police nationwide.

There was a support rally in at least one other city; Memphis, Tennessee, where ten or more mothers who have lost children to murder by police took part.

BA Speaks

"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

What Humanity Needs

At the beginning of 2012, an in-depth interview with Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, was conducted over a period of several days by A. Brooks, a younger generation revolutionary who has been inspired by the leadership and body of work of Bob Avakian and the new synthesis of communism this has brought forward.

Special Issue

People need the truth about the communist revolution. The REAL truth. At a time when people are rising up in many places all over the world and seeking out ways forward, THIS alternative is ruled out of order. At a time when even more people are agonizing over and raising big questions about the future, THIS alternative is constantly slandered and maligned and lied about, while those who defend it are given no space to reply.
