No Going back—No Surrender! Abortion on Demand & Without Apology!
Forced Motherhood Is Female Enslavement!
Christian Fascist Theocrats—Get Your Laws and Vigilantes Off Our Bodies!
Patriarchy and Capitalism: You Can’t End One Without Ending The Other—Revolution, Nothing Less!
On October 2, the Women’s March and other groups have called for powerful demonstrations all over the country in defense of abortion rights. These rights are under relentless attack—and since September 1 have been effectively taken away in Texas. This is the future that the fascist Republican Party and the courts they increasingly dominate are nailing down—a future that is not yet being resisted and opposed anywhere near firmly or defiantly enough. Everyone who cares about the emancipation of the half of humanity that is female should be at one of these marches on October 2 and make this a turning point in building relentless in-the-streets resistance.
The Revcoms are forming a contingent to march on that day of all those who see the need for uncompromising resistance in the streets against these horrible laws AND who hunger for a whole new world. If you are sick and tired of women being treated as less than full human beings... if you agonize about the “handmaid’s tale” future that is no longer science fiction but is now real and upon us... if you recognize that there can be no compromise with Christian fascists and unjust laws that enforce female enslavement... and most of all, if you see the need to dig up the roots of this and every other form of oppression and exploitation and bring in a whole new emancipatory world... then you need to be part of this contingent.
Bob Avakian, the revolutionary leader who we revcoms follow, has said this:
You cannot break all the chains, except one. You cannot say you want to be free of exploitation and oppression, except you want to keep the oppression of women by men. You can't say you want to liberate humanity yet keep one half of the people enslaved to the other half. The oppression of women is completely bound up with the division of society into masters and slaves, exploiters and exploited, and the ending of all such conditions is impossible without the complete liberation of women. All this is why women have a tremendous role to play not only in making revolution but in making sure there is all-the-way revolution. The fury of women can and must be fully unleashed as a mighty force for proletarian revolution.
