REVOLUTION Newspaper #471, December 31, 2016

Sign the Call to Action. Join with over 2,000 others, including well-known people, to stop this regime before it starts.

"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      

Saturday December 31—New Years Eve: political demonstrations and manifestations at Trump properties and elsewhere announce to the world the presence of the NO! movement.

What You Need To Know Today…

Carl Dix, of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, and one of the co-initiators of RefuseFascism.org, speaks at New Year's Eve protest at Columbus Circle, NYC. Carl lays out the vision and plan for taking the "No Trump! No Pence! No Fascist 2017!" message to every corner of society in the coming days and building massive resistance culminating in people coming to Washington, D.C. before the MLK holiday. Carl Dix is heading to DC, and calling on people to join him there, and to stay in the streets and disrupt business as usual to prevent the Trump-Pence regime from ruling.

There is a place where epistemology and morality meet. There is a place where you have to stand and say: It is not acceptable to refuse to look at something—or to refuse to believe something—because it makes you uncomfortable. And: It is not acceptable to believe something just because it makes you feel comfortable.

Bob Avakian, BAsics 5:11

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

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...

What a world! What a system and what a ruling class where “young earth creationists” and other reactionary cretins are allowed to have a major impact in influencing what is taught in the public schools—and apparently no higher political (ruling class) authority is willing or able to step in and declare, and act decisively to effect, that this cannot and will not be allowed, that it is simply impermissible for dangerous lunacy like this to be promoted as public policy and for people who promote such lunacy to sit on influential decision-making bodies.

All this provides yet another profound illustration of the fact that this ruling class has objectively forfeited any right to rule and to determine the direction of society—and to significantly influence the course of the world and the fate of humanity overall.

Bob Avakian, BAsics 1:25

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. Revcom.us/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.
