This Summer in Chicago Will NOT Be a Bloodbath of Killing Each Other

This Summer Will NOT Be Free Rein for Police to Murder and Terrorize Black and Brown People

This Summer We Get Organized for Revolution to Emancipate All of Humanity

Every summer, people young and old in Chicago dread it—will their friends or children or parents or they themselves be killed in gang shootings, or shot down by some murdering cop for being young and Black or Latino?


The Revolution Club declares:

This summer Chicago will become known for revolution, not for people killing each other while Trump the Amerikkkan Hitler moves ahead with a genocidal program targeting Black and Brown people. This summer Chicago will become known for people changing what they are living, fighting, and dying for, taking up the cause of human emancipation and getting organized now to overthrow this system at the soonest possible time.

This summer people will find out about, and get with, the leadership they have in Bob Avakian (BA) and the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP). This summer people will learn about and take up the science and strategy for revolution that has been developed by BA that shows us that this revolution is the only way out. This summer people will learn how to get organized to carry out and win the all-out struggle for power. This summer people will take up and fight for the vision and program embodied in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, written by BA, for a new society where people actually count for something and are given the backing they need to uproot all the different forms of oppression and get beyond a world divided into rich and poor, masters and slaves.

This summer people will change what they’re about and take up the Points of Attention for the Revolution. This summer people will get out of the “me and mine first” bullshit that has us trapped on the bottom scrambling for the crumbs that fall off the imperialist table. This summer, people will come to deeply know that women are not bitches, ho’s, punching bags, incubators, sex objects, or breeders—women are full human beings. People will learn to recognize and value the humanity of each other, of gay and differently gendered people, of Muslims, of immigrants, of people all across the world, and yes, of people right down the block that they’ve looked at as enemies. This summer, people will become critical scientific thinkers and not mindless religious robots.

This summer, people will stop being played into thinking that the enemy is someone just like us living right down the street and instead they will get ready and organized to fight to overthrow the real enemy that has created, and has us locked in, the conditions, the misery, and the poverty that has us at each others’ throats. This summer, people will get out of the madness of killing other people in the exact same conditions. This summer, people will give REAL MEANING to the lives of their murdered loved ones by going after the system that is really responsible. People will stop thirsting for retaliation and revenge. Instead, people will lift their sights and come together to fight for the interests of the masses of people all over the world because that is what people really need and that is what humanity is counting on us to do.

Right now all over the world people are looking at Chicago because of the violence among the people and because of Trump’s fascist threats to move in. This summer, let Chicago become known in a radically different way: Let it become known for people stepping out as an organized force for revolution, changing what people are getting into, what people are fighting for, and what people all over the world see as possible. People will see that there is a way out of the mess this system has people trapped in, here and all over the world.

YOU Are Needed

You are needed to step up to this challenge. You are needed by the masses of people who are going through hell. You are needed by the people of the world who cry out for a different future. You are needed by the people around you, people who don’t think things can be different or who fear change. You are needed to throw in everything you can to be part of preparing the ground, preparing the people, and preparing the vanguard leadership, hastening a situation where millions can go all out for revolution, with a real chance to win.

BA says, “We, the masses of people, are capable of much greater things than this. We are capable of completely and radically changing our circumstances, changing all of society to get rid of circumstances like these. What happens in the world affects us and we can affect the world, and when all is said and done, we can change the whole world, together with people like us all over the world.”

This summer: Decide to live by and fight for the six Points of Attention for the Revolution. Put on the T-shirt representing the revolution, BA Speaks: REVOLUTION―NOTHING LESS! Join the Revolution Club and become an emancipator of humanity.
