April 29On the 30th anniversary of the righteous and heroic LA rebellion after the acquittal of the pigs who brutalized Rodney King, the revcoms took to the streets in South Central, right where the rebellion began—at Florence and Normandie.

The chants rang out: “Thirty years since Rodney King, they still get away with the same old thing. This won't end till the system's done. Revolution is the hope for those who have none!”

From there, the revcoms went to the notoriously brutal 77th police precinct. All along the way people peered out from their windows, and came down to get flyers. People gave power fists, honked in support, or stopped to listen to agitation from the speakers.

When we got to the 77th pig sty, former Black Panther and Revolutionary Communist Joe Veale spoke powerfully about the revolutionary potential of the oppressed and the responsibility we have to struggle with the masses to break with this system’s ways of thinking and take up the science and leadership they need to finally put an end to this system:

Noche Diaz, the National Spokesperson for the Revolution Clubs, closed out the rally with a call for people to come out and march on May Day, bringing alive what a difference it will make for people here and all over the world to see a force of people, in the belly of the beast, fighting for these slogans:

NO US/NATO WAR WITH RUSSIA! NO WORLD WAR 3!
IT’S THIS SYSTEM, NOT HUMANITY, THAT NEEDS TO BECOME EXTINCT!
WE DON’T ACCEPT THEIR FUTURE
IT’S TIME TO GET ORGANIZED FOR A REAL REVOLUTION
