Stop the War
Sat March 8 Noon
International Women's Day
Starts at: Holy Name Cathedral
735 N. State St, Chicago
Followed by a march (bring signs!)
· Abortion on Demand and Without Apology!
· End Pornography and Patriarchy:
The Enslavement & Degradation of Women!
· Fight for the Liberation of Women All Over the World!
Abortion rights are in a state of emergency! 203 new restrictions to abortion were passed in the last three years. Five states have only one abortion clinic left. Anti-woman bigots harass women at abortion clinics across the country. 97% of rural counties have no abortion providers. Upcoming court rulings threaten to close dozens more clinics nationwide. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement!
Meanwhile, women are slammed backwards in every realm:
from the mainstreaming of violent and degrading pornography to the global epidemic of rape, from a culture that celebrates pimping to the shaming of women who choose to have sex outside of marriage, and from the sexual enslavement of millions of women and girls in the sex industry to the widespread celebration of Pope Francis while he has changed nothing of church doctrine that enslaves and humiliates women and LGBT people.
Take to the streets this International Women's Day.
Through our public resistance we will expose the illegitimacy of this whole war on women and put the woman-haters on notice that we will not sit silently by. We will express our outrage and bring alive a culture of defiance and liberation. We will wake up and rally forth many thousands more, refusing to stop until we win.
The future of women is at stake. Which side are YOU on?

Discussion of Part 4 of the interview with Raymond Lotta in Revolution:
Toward a New Stage of Communist Revolution
Question: Raymond, we've discussed the first stage of communist revolution in some depth and you've brought into sharp and vivid focus these unparalleled transformations and achievements... and some of the problems as well. But at the end of the day, there was this defeat. What did that mean at the time and where does it leave us today?
Bob Avakian Brings Forward a New Synthesis of Communism
Learning From, Advancing Beyond the Cultural Revolution
The World Needs the New Synthesis of Communist Revolution
People need the truth about the communist revolution. The REAL truth. At a time when people are rising up in many places all over the world and seeking out ways forward, THIS alternative is ruled out of order. At a time when even more people are agonizing over and raising big questions about the future, THIS alternative is constantly slandered and maligned and lied about, while those who defend it are given no space to reply. We thought it urgent that we answer the questions and tell the TRUTH about the communist revolution-the real way out of the horrors that people endure today, and the even worse ones they face tomorrow. read more
Let us know about your questions and experiences in taking this issue out.

Received from Chicago Stop Mass Incarceration Network
Protest: Bring the Noise - Justice for Jordan Davis!
Sunday Feb 16 - 1pm,
Washington & Dearborn in the Chicago Loop
Michael Dunn murdered 17-year-old Jordan Davis after arguing with him over the loud music Davis and his friends were playing in a gas station parking lot. While the jury convicted Dunn of secondary counts, THEY DID NOT REACH A DECISION ON THE MURDER OF JORDAN DAVIS!!! ONCE AGAIN THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR: BLACK YOUTH-ALL BLACK YOUTH-HAVE TARGETS ON THEIR BACK. Dunn's defense came down to saying any white person has the right to kill any Black person he or she feels is a threat to them. And the jury did not contradict that!
By not convicting Dunn for the murder of Jordan Davis, Amerikkka is declaring, once again, that Black people have no rights that white people are bound to respect. How long are we going to put up with Black people being gunned down, or lynched, by racists and by the police?
Everybody-Black people, white people, people of all races and backgrounds, everybody who has an ounce of justice in their hearts-needs to take to the streets in outrage over the failure to render justice for the murder of Jordan Davis. Our cry must be JUSTICE FOR JORDAN DAVIS! THE WHOLE SYSTEM IS GUILTY!
