Revolution #214, October 24, 2010
This issue of Revolution features, on page 3, an important editorial announcing the official release of the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal). We urge all our readers to study and discuss this editorial and spread it far and wide—and to make plans and follow through on fundraising!
This week... All Out for October 22, the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation! This October 22, 2010, the 15th annual national day of protest, needs to be a day marked by determined resistance. It needs to be a day when young people and people of all ages pour into the streets and manifest their outrage at the brutality and murder this system’s enforcers inflict on the people. It needs to be a day when the victims have a platform to expose how this official brutality has devastated their lives, and when people from different backgrounds and of different races come together to say NO MORE to these outrages. On page 15, there is a list of the current plans—and stay tuned to october22.org for more.
A key tool in building for October 22 demonstrations, which will draw forward many, many people and impact society broadly, will be getting this issue of Revolution out across the country. And within this, special efforts should be made to get this in the hands of high school students, many of whom face police harassment and brutality daily! Popularize the piece by Carl Dix in this issue—as well as the center broadsheet, the Stolen Lives stories, and the letters from prisoners. Funds should be raised as broadly as possible so hundreds of copies of this issue can be distributed—and even passed out—at high schools in important areas of different cities.
On Wednesday, October 20, be part of getting 5,000 views of the video clip, “Yes there’s a conspiracy... to get the cops off” from Bob Avakian’s talk, Revolution: Why It’s Necessary, Why It’s Possible, What It’s All About. Go to youtube.com/revolutiontalk for the clip. Repost it on Facebook, send links to all your friends and ask your friends to do the same. As people organize for the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality on October 22, be part of getting out the truth about this system, and introducing people to the leader of the movement for revolution, Bob Avakian.
