Why We ALL Need to March for Revolution on June 12

Editors’ Note: These are excerpted and edited transcripts of on-the-spot agitation from a member of the National Revolution Tour at a meeting last week, which we thought would be helpful to share with revcom.us readers, as part of building for the June 12 actions nationally. This is inspired by and seeking to implement what is called for in A DECLARATION, A CALL TO GET ORGANIZED NOW FOR A REAL REVOLUTION, from the revcoms. They have been edited for accessibility to readers, with footnotes where necessary.

If you look at just what’s going on and the divisions in society—it looks very bad on first sight.

You have these fascists, Republican-fascist or Trumpite white supremacists; then you have these others on top like Biden and the Democrats. They don’t—none of them—have any answers; right now, they’re still doing this shit, massacres in Palestine. They’re still fucking people over at the border. They doing these assaults on the rights of women (see here and here), of gay people, of trans people. They’re ruining the environment and endangering humanity.

But even a small group for a real revolution right now like us—there’s a lot of initiative that we could actually take because we DO have an answer. Because we do have an answer that nobody else does that actually is in line with reality, that actually speaks to the aspirations that so many people have to be done with this, where people don’t want no more.

Cover of A Declaration, A Call to Get Organized Now For A Real Revolution

 

On June 12 we’re planning to march to the LA County Sheriff’s station on Imperial. We know these people are brutal. These motherfuckers organize gangs and they get their tattoo and they get to join the gangs when they go kill a Black or Brown person.

And some people in the neighborhoods are terrified about all this, “terrified.” That’s cause people don’t know their own potential power, but that changes when they start to see reality, see the cracks inside the wall of the system, and how we could widen all that and bring this whole thing down, a real revolution.

That’s what Bob Avakian, the most important leader today, shows you. How we organize ourselves, how we reach out to millions, bring this system down and put something much, much better in its place.

New Year's Statement by Bob Avakian

 

People Don’t Know Their Potential Strength!

But people don’t know that we could actually change that. They don’t know that there’s a way out. Not enough people know about this revolution and they aren’t with it now. People gotta get with it. They don’t know about this leader. We got a leader that can lead the way out, he’s been at this since the ’60s and never given up, but people don’t know that and they need to know what he’s saying and who he is.

So, we’re going out there and we’re calling on everybody else to come out there and to march with the revcoms:

If you want to see that fear being broken from people, those blinders on people’s eyes being broken—then you’ve gotta march with the revcoms.

If you want to see a different situation, if you’re tired of the way this system treats people as less than human, if you want to fight for something that’s really worth fighting for—then you march with the revcoms.

If you’re tired of seeing all these youth killing each other for some streets that they don’t own or control for “respect” or “face” or whatever you want to call it—then you come and march with the revcoms to show them that there’s an alternative, there’s something that’s really worth fighting for: a plan and a strategy and leadership that could actually get all the way out of this.

If you’re tired of all this potential where people are rising up and then they get pulled into puny reforms—for body cameras or to vote for this lying-ass politician or that lying-ass politician or for defund the police or abolish the police, all unrealistic goals that are a fantasy that actually don’t deal with the problem that the system requires the police to murder people that they can’t fucking use anymore—then you march with the revcoms to show people that there is an alternative, that there is something for them to get with that’s actually in line with reality, that requires real sacrifice, real heart, but is actually possible.

On June 12th we plan to, from the call for June 12th:

Show the World: We Are Getting Organized Now For REVOLUTION, NOTHING LESS!... that WE ARE FIGHTING TO EMANCIPATE ALL HUMANITY—For a World Free of All Oppression and Exploitation, No More Antagonistic Divisions Among the People

June 12 Is Carrying Out a Strategy to Win

That’s what we’re marching with people to do and that’s part of how we could actually break things open—this is how we start to actually change what people are thinking about, where their sights are set. Some of our people are really confined by what they see in front of them in this system and what they hear from the media and all of that. But if we’re actually calling out their—the system’s—murderousness and their illegitimacy and we’re saying and showing here’s a force that right now that has to grow and can grow... that there’s a way out that has a leadership for that—then we could start to transform all of that.

What this Declaration and Call lays out right there is a strategy to actually go to work on that and that’s what we have to call on people to do, to spread the word all the way into there and then after that to actually make that real.

That’s what June 12th is... carrying out the strategy that’s in this Declaration that is laid out right there, the actual plan to get the forces we need to make revolution, laid out by Bob Avakian... make an impact with the numbers we got now to get more people wanting to know about this and get in on it... and go from there, “acting together as an increasingly powerful force”... “attracting and organizing the necessary numbers” until we get to that situation—that’s where we’re aiming for, where we actually have a real chance to win—at a time when the system is in deep shit, in crisis. That’s what it really comes down to—a real chance to win.

If you want that chance not just to fight but to really win, bring down this system for a whole different world...and you’re ready to be part of making that real...then you need to march with the revcoms on June 12.

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!
