REVOLUTION Newspaper #470, December 23, 2016

"Imagine if people, in the tens of millions, filled the streets, powerfully declaring that this regime is illegitimate and demanding that it not be allowed to rule!  The whole political landscape would be dramatically transformed, every faction within the established power structure would be forced to respond—and all this could well lead to a situation in which this fascist regime is actually prevented from ruling. This is not some idle dream but something which could be made a reality if all those who hate what is represented by this fascist regime translate their outrage into firm determination and massive mobilization to create the conditions which make this possible."

from the Mission and Plan for a Month of Massive Resistance      

Get the word out and start building for this NOW:

Saturday December 31—New Years Eve: political demonstrations and manifestations at Trump properties and Times Square NY in particular, of such a character that they seize the news that day, announcing to the world the presence of the NO! movement.

Trump & Pence Move Ahead with Fascist Agenda:
Don't Conciliate...Don't Accommodate... Don't Collaborate

Trump-Pence in power will signal a terrible leap backward in every sphere of society which people are struggling today to change, while running a significantly greater risk of nuclear war and an accelerated pace of environmental destruction; but it is worse than that. It will mean—and feature as its driving edge—severe and pervasive political and social repression and, with that, a deep poisoning of the “soul” of society. This is what has happened in fascist countries in Europe in the ’30s and Latin America in the ’70s and ’80s... and what happened in the American South with the betrayal of Reconstruction and the imposition of 90 years of Jim Crow, enforced by lynch-mob terror on Black people, especially in the South.

The Trump-Pence Regime Must Be Stopped Before It Starts, and We Must Be The Ones To Stop It!

At the December 19 emergency organizing meeting in NYC, Carl Dix challenges those who dismiss the dangers of Trump by saying "Black people have been through this before..." to look at how the KKK killed thousands of Black people after betrayal of the Reconstruction after the Civil War.

Make Your Holiday Gatherings a Time of Mobilization

If you are with family, if you are at theater events, if you are at parties with friends, when you go to the movies on Xmas afternoon or get the kids out of the house to the playground after the presents are opened, when you are at church or other holiday celebrations, over the lasagna or turkey or lamb, when you go see whatever special cultural thing you go see for your special winter treat that you really can’t afford, when you go hang out wherever you hang out ‘cuz you’re in a city far from home and have nowhere special to go, if you are institutionalized and someone is coming to visit you for the holidays, you have to make the most of it to bring people forward.

If you want to get a deep societal analysis of the horror we face and the possibility of a whole different way, you need to get into Bob Avakian...

It is extremely important to step back from the immediate situation and the terms in which things are presented to us, and ask: How did we get to the situation where the choices, the framework and limits we are supposed to accept are marked at one end by outright fascists and at the other end by someone [Bill Clinton] who, as even a mainstream columnist describes him, is the most conservative Democratic President since Truman, who heads a Democratic administration that has served as an aggressive and effective instrument in a many-sided reactionary offensive against the basic masses and broader sections of people? Where will we be, before long, and what will the future look like, if people, especially those who see the need to oppose this reactionary offensive, nevertheless are convinced to confine their political objectives and activity within the logic and dynamic that has led us to the present situation? And, most importantly, how do we get out of this situation? The answer is that it must and can only be done by mobilizing broad ranks of people, uniting people from many different strata and walks of life, to build determined resistance to this whole reactionary program and to transform the whole terms of political contention and struggle, the whole "political terrain"—resistance that is not limited to and does not rely on the very political structures, institutions and processes that are the means through which this reactionary offensive is being carried out and given "legitimacy."

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
