Intervening with BEB at the Bernie Sanders kickoff rally in Brooklyn

New York City Revolution Club went out to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign kickoff rally in Brooklyn on Saturday morning, March 2. Thousands of people, including many students and young people, lined up for hours to get in, excited to hear their progressive democratic socialist candidate talk about “healthcare for all,” tuition-free college, and taxing Wall Street to fund all this. We showed up with a big BEB poster (as featured on the revcom website) which has the faces of current Democratic Party candidates, including Bernie, alongside a picture of Trump and Pence with the letters BEB across each picture. A thousand flyers of this same graphic were distributed down the line while people waited to get in. This created a buzz going into and at the rally. Also, some of us were able to get onto the bleachers that back-dropped Bernie Sanders and we held up signs that had BEB taped over Bernie’s official rally poster. (The organizers had the police escort us off the stage after a while but the BEB signs and people wearing revcom T-shirts back-dropped  Bernie for a whole chunk of his speech.) After the rally ended, shit just broke loose! Everyone passing by was demanding to know “What is BEB?”



Have you ever noticed that the one privilege these “identity politics” hustlers don’t talk about is American privilege?—the privilege that comes from living in the USA, a country that plunders the world and whose wealth and power rests on brutal exploitation and oppression throughout the world, backed up by the massive violence of the American military. These hustlers want all they can get of that privilege. In opposition to that, what the masses of humanity need is to do away with and move beyond this whole vampire system, putting an end to all exploitation and oppression.

From Revolution Club, Los Angeles:

At UCLA Campus: “We had challenged the whole framework that keeps these students sleepwalking through a nightmare and this sharply polarized the people”

Last Wednesday the Revolution Club went to an open mic on the UCLA campus called The Word on Wednesdays. It’s a very progressive crowd of mostly Black and Latino students who are loosely in the “woke” scene on campus. We went to read poetry, and announce the upcoming You Think You’re Woke... But You’re Sleepwalking Through A Nightmare–This System Cannot Be Reformed, It Must Be Overthrown! The Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution Tour.

Someone from the Revolution Club stepped up to the mic and read parts from the Call—including doing a pretty short and sharp polemic on intersectionality. The room began to tremor and faces visibly contorted as if the crowd had bit into a lemon.

The Club member went on to read the title of their poem “The Women Of The World.” They begin to read their poem....

In Somalia the rain does not fall
So we must sell our only daughter
In Myanmar police burn my village
Drown my dark-skin baby in the r...

Before the Revolution Club member could read another word, they were shut down by the emcee saying, “You can’t just come up in here and criticize intersectionality and then go on to read a poem about women all over the world.” Another woman got up and said “by criticizing intersectionality you are discounting all of the people in the room,” and quickly the argument got boiled down to the lowest common denominator and what really concentrates the problem with this whole way of looking at the world: “You are a white man.”
