May 17, 2017


Heavy things are coming down on the people, and about to get much worse.  Trump plans to use the conflicts among the people in Chicago to bring down the hammer like never before in our lifetimes.  Trump and Pence are moving in a genocidal direction against Black people, as part of their whole fascist offensive.  They could move as early as this summer.

But too many of our youth are caught up in the craziness of killing each other.  Not able to cross the street into another neighborhood.  The oppressed fighting among themselves, instead of against the oppressor.  Doing to each other what the system wants us to do.

But there’s a whole other way.  We are working for a revolution at the soonest possible time.  A revolution to overthrow this whole system which has caused this horror and much more.  A revolution to seize power and to emancipate all humanity.

This Saturday, May 20, from 5 to 6 pm, one of the leaders of the revolution, Carl Dix, will deliver an urgent message at 71st and Jeffery:


This will be a message of revolution: what it’s about and the world we are fighting for.  This message will be about unity...against the REAL enemy.  This message will tell you about the leadership we have for this revolution, to see it all the way through: Bob Avakian, and the Revolutionary Communist Party.  This message will tell you your role in this revolution, right now.

The police will try to suppress this.  They have already harassed and arrested people in the revolution on the south side.  We have mobilized people to fight this and will keep fighting it.  These pigs will also try to make use of the conflicts among the people – conflicts caused by the system that they “serve and protect.” 

IMPORTANT: People need to be able to hear this message.  We should not give the pigs an excuse to come in and bust this up.  We should put our beefs aside while the revolution gets out its message to everyone who wants to hear it.  And the police must not be allowed to incite or foment anything during that period.  We all have a role to play in making sure that this message is allowed to be heard.

The stand of revolution is clear – and set forth in the 6th Point of Attention:

“We are going for an actual overthrow of this system and a whole better way beyond the destructive, vicious conflicts of today between the people.  Because we are serious, at this stage we do not initiate violence and we oppose all violence against the people and among the people.”

5 pm, this Saturday, 71st and Jeffery
