This Weekend and the Week Following: A Special Effort to Promote and Show Bob Avakian’s Filmed Talk on “The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”

November 22, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |



Bob Avakian’s speech, THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America, A Better World IS Possible, is the single best work on the situation we face today—the challenges it poses to humanity, where it came from, and how to act against it. The question/answer session that follows the hour-long talk speaks to the most critical questions that people have raised—in a powerful, comprehensive, and accessible way. In addition, people get to meet, and begin relating to, the most radical revolutionary on the planet … a really mind-opening experience.

But far too few people have seen this. Let’s take this next two weeks to begin to change that. Everyone reading this should be thinking of creative ways to get this out—especially those of you who know opinion-makers of different kinds. For the Revolution Clubs, this means two things in particular.

  • The clubs should organize a few days of going out to the neighborhoods, schools, and other places where people gather, showing people the clips and trailer, promoting the palm cards, and getting video testimonials.  We can do this with the TV trucks in Chicago and NY, and cell phones/tablets nationally. This could interpenetrate with a whole social media push. We are proposing here that these days be done this Saturday and the Thursday after that (November 30) and then once more on the following Tuesday (December 5). This should be conceived in relation to, and not in antagonism to, things that Refuse Fascism will be organizing for.
  • The clubs should, as part of this Saturday’s effort, build big screenings on Sunday, November 26. We should show the talk as well as some of the most key Q&A’s in an afternoon. This should be seriously built, out broadly drawing in new people, and reaching back to the many, many people we’ve met over the past months. While it’s been very important to have the parts, it would be powerful for people to take the whole afternoon with it. Taking out the time for it can be part of the attraction—stepping back and getting really deeply into what we’re facing, how we got here and what is required of us.
  • One feature of these showings: working with people to figure out how to take this into their networks and communities; and where people have done this already, summing up with them what they have learned off it.
  • We should forward what we accomplish and learn through this to Email to:
