Two LA Schools Walk Out Against Police Murder

May 25, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


On Friday, May 22nd, students from two South Central Los Angeles high schools walked out of school in response to the announcement last week that no charges were filed against the cop who murdered 19-year-old Tony Robinson in Madison, WI, and in solidarity with the rebels of Baltimore.

Together with the L.A. Revolution Club they marched to the memorial site where Ezell Ford was murdered by LAPD last August, then to nearby 77th Street police division for a speakout.  After the speakout they came across police pulling guns on people in a car and blew whistles and shouted until the police angrily backed off. 

Some of the marchers then went down to Compton to join a vigil with the family of Mayra Cornejo as part of the national #sayhername vigils and protests this week (see “#Say Her Name Vigil Shines Light on Police Murder of Black Women" for a report on the Say Her Name event in NYC). Many of the students took up wearing the Revolution Nothing Less t-shirt.

"The film brings you up close inside Cornel West's and Bob Avakian's dialogue: the passion, the audacity, the science, the morality, the revolutionary substance. Two courageous voices modeling a morality that refuses to accept injustice – pouring heart and soul into standing together challenging all of us to fight for a world worthy of humanity."

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.
