Episode 55 of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less—Show!

“How soon can we sweep this system away?” Bob Avakian on Tulsa; June 12 MARCH for Revolution; and More


100 years since the white racist Tulsa Massacre, the truth must be confronted: This system cannot be reformed. It MUST be overthrown! This underscores the importance and urgency of the June 12 March in South Central LA (with support marches in NYC and Chicago) to show the world: “We are getting organized now for revolution, nothing less!” Everyone who dreams of a better world has a role to play.

On this week's episode of The RNL Show:

* Bob Avakian’s new statement, “THE RACIST TULSA MASSACRE—THE MOST PROFOUND LESSON,” on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre and Destruction of Black Wall Street, as read by Carl Dix at Revolution Books in Harlem, New York City.

* “June 12: MARCH! Show the World: We Are Getting Organized Now For REVOLUTION, NOTHING LESS!” Andy Zee will take you to a press conference outside the LA Sheriff’s Office in South Central Los Angeles and bring alive the political fight that has been waged to reverse their denial of a permit to march to the Revcoms on June 12th.

The press conference featured Revolution Club National Spokesperson, Noche Diaz; a letter signed by a broad range of public figures; and statements from Rev. Nathaniel Martin (National Action Network, President, LA Chapter), Rev. Frank Wulf (Pastor, Echo Park United Methodist Church), and Emanuel Padilla (activist). Also, voices from members of the Revolution Club who have been out organizing for June 12th in the neighborhoods.

Newsflash. Victory! In the face of the many voices who raised the demand, the LA County Sheriff's Department has now granted a permit for the June 12 march. For more info go to revcom.us.

* Bob Avakian answers the question: “What would you say to youth who have been cast out by this system?” From the 2014 dialogue between Bob Avakian and Cornel West called “Revolution and Religion: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion.”

* There’s nothing more difficult, audacious, needed, or inspiring than a real revolution in this, the most powerful empire in the world. What gives us the nerve to dare—and how do we go about—organizing people into this revolution?

Sunsara Taylor will bring you segments from an important meeting of the Revolution Tour and others in Los Angeles, featuring segments of a speech and Q&A by Andy Zee. Andy draws from “A Declaration, A Call to Get Organized Now for A Real Revolution” to give guidance on how we need to—and can be—winning masses of people now to step into this revolution.

* In the face of a barbaric and woman-hating abortion ban in Texas, high school valedictorian Paxton Smith threw out her prepared and approved speech and used her platform to deliver a courageous speech decrying this assault on women. We bring this to you and insist: ABORTION ON DEMAND AND WITHOUT APOLOGY!
