“White Supremacists Must Be Politically Defeated and Their System Must Be Overthrown!”
The Revolution Club to Counter-Protest White Supremacists in DC this Weekend

The Revolution Club will join with others to counter-protest the white supremacists that Trump called “fine people” this Sunday, August 12 in Washington, DC on the anniversary of the murder of Heather Heyer as part of getting organized for an actual revolution. Their “REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS” contingent will meet at noon at Freedom Plaza at noon on August 12.

Lucha Bright, a member of the Chicago Revolution Club who was assaulted and sent to the hospital by white supremacists a year ago in Charlottesville (this assault was featured in Frontline/ProPublica’s special Documenting Hate), said, “Donald Trump is bringing back the racist terror of lynch mobs, auction blocks, slave whips, and Jim Crow. We intend to politically defeat these fascists this weekend and are getting organized for an actual revolution.”

The Revolution Club is recognizable by their iconic T-shirts emblazoned with the words, “BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS!” which have been seen in protests and uprisings from Ferguson, Missouri, after the police murder of Michael Brown to the Republican National Convention where 17 were arrested for burning the American flag to recent protests against the separation of immigrant children. The letters “BA” on their shirts refer to Bob Avakian, the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, architect of the new communism, and author of the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, a sweeping vision and concrete blueprint for a radically new society after the current system is overthrown through revolution.


Interviews available with Lucha Bright of the Chicago Revolution Club, who was assaulted and sent to the hospital by white supremacist Nazis in Charlottesville one year ago. She is organizing young people on Chicago’s South Side to stop fighting each other and turn their anger where it belongs—towards making a revolution that overthrows this system that has put them in this mess, that is carrying out genocide against them, and that has given rise to these Nazi shock troops.

The Revolution Club lives by the following Points of Attention:

1 We base ourselves on and strive to represent the highest interests of humanity: revolution and communism. We do not tolerate using the revolution for personal gain.

2 We fight for a world where ALL the chains are broken. Women, men, and differently gendered people are equals and comrades. We do not tolerate physically or verbally abusing women or treating them as sexual objects, nor do we tolerate insults or “jokes” about people’s gender or sexual orientation.

3 We fight for a world without borders, and for equality among different peoples, cultures and languages. We do not tolerate insults, “jokes” or derogatory names about a person’s race, nationality, or language.

4 We stand with the most oppressed and never lose sight of their potential to emancipate humanity—nor of our responsibility to lead them to do that. We work to win people of all backgrounds to take part in the revolution, and do not tolerate revenge among the people.

5 We search for and fight for the truth no matter how unpopular, even as we listen to and learn from the observations, insights and criticisms of others.

6 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.
