HBO Max is now streaming a new documentary, Betrayal at Attica, which chronicles the vicious murders of the prisoners and hostages at the Attica Prison in New York on September 13, 1971. As we approach the 50th anniversary of this brutal attack on unarmed prisoners, this documentary as told by Liz Fink, the lead attorney in the federal civil rights case for the Attica Brothers, exposes the brutality of the massacre and the State of New York’s cover-up of the righteous Attica Rebellion. (See American Crime Case #81: September 13, 1971—Massacre of Heroic Attica Prisoners.) I don’t want to divulge the ending; however, it is worth noting that the documentary links this 1971 massacre and brutal treatment of the Black Attica prisoners with the recent police murders of Black people. The trailer of the documentary can be seen here.

Sustain and Donate to Revcom.us – Spread BA and Revolution at this Unprecedented Moment!
Thanks in large part to the generous financial contributions of readers, we have just gone live with a major rebuild of the technology that drives the revcom.us website!
Implementing this new technology provides a foundation for revcom.us to be at the core of solving a problem with great stakes for humanity at this moment. That problem is: We have – with the leadership of Bob Avakian (BA) – the vision, strategy and leadership for the real revolution humanity so desperately needs. But what we do not have is thousands now who can bring forward millions into the movement for revolution at this rare time in history when a real revolution is possible.
Now a new leap in fundraising is necessary for revcom.us to leverage the new technology and urgently expand the site’s reach and impact. That in turn requires an expanded, and ever-expanding community of regular financial sustainers. Join that community today by pledging to sustain revcom.us on a monthly basis and struggling with others to do so as well!
