Spreading the Word and Building for November 4 and Beyond

Updated October 28, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


Threats of nuclear war; reassertion of white supremacy; putrid abuse and hatred of women; attacks on immigrants and Muslims; attacking the rights of LGBTQ people; gleeful destruction of the environment in pursuit of profit—millions of people recognize this as a living nightmare. On the weekend of October 20-23, coast to coast, people went to green markets, to football games, to zombie festivals; people went on trains and public transportation, through middle class neighborhoods and into ghettos and barrios, bringing the message that THIS NIGHTMARE MUST END: THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO!

This was a stride toward letting some of those millions know there is a way out. And it needs to intensify in the days before November 4. People who hear about November 4 must themselves organize and get the word out to millions more. The future of humanity, the future of the planet really is at stake. There is no one else—the nightmare must end, and only the people can, and must, end it.

Some of the sights and sounds from the building towards November 4 are below. Also see “October 22, 2017—National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality ... Protesting Police Murder, Standing with NFL Players, and Organizing for Nov 4—Trump/Pence Must Go!

Submission: Intolerant policies warrant nonviolent protests, not civil discourse

In the context of a fascist regime in power, you cannot have “civil discourse” with fascists...

To advocate for civil discourse at a time when these ideas have the backing of the state – such as through threatening tweets from the president in support of these speakers – serves to fan the flames of fascism...

Thursday, October 19, at Kenwood Academy High School, Chicago police swarmed Kenwood students after school, using force and intimidation tactics to attempt to stop the students from talking with organizers about the November 4 protests to drive out the Trump/Pence regime.

The Revolution Club went right back out to Kenwood High School the day after the police tried to literally drown out their interactions with the students. This time the police stayed away while the school security messed with the organizers and students, but they couldn't stop the students from signing the banner and getting organized for November 4th...

“The Snake”

Donald Trump has used the lyrics to “The Snake” many times in speeches to demonize immigrants. He is twisting the song, and turning the message upside down! The words and music are by the legendary Oscar Brown Jr, father of Maggie & Africa. They have been outraged at Trump's misuse and distortion of the meaning of Oscar's words.

“Just want to thank the Refuse Fascism national office for your advice to focus this 4-day weekend on solving 2 problems:

“1) People are agonizing about all the sharpening ways this regime is advancing, and they don’t know about Nov 4 and the plans for protests day after day and night after night—AND their decisive role in this; and

“2) We must make significant advances in organizing new people to become organizers for Nov 4, bringing in many more of those who are agonizing and looking for a way to act.

“There were only two of us yesterday from the Detroit chapter. We went to the Eastern Market, and went over that advice before we started...

Posters Up in 90 Stores – Enlisting People As We Went

Our team of 2, plus another friend who joined midway, just finished a trip down a couple miles of a major street in our city. We got almost 90 posters for November 4 out, mostly up, in stores, restaurants and street vendor carts. It was probably the most positive and heartfelt response we’ve gotten in a long time or ever. This area is a fast-gentrifying stretch that runs thru a large college campus, many small smoke shops, bodegas, wine shops, nail salons, laundries and restaurants which are being encroached on by chain stores in past 5-10 years.
