When the American Hitler and His War Criminal Defense Chief Battle It Out... Do We Have a (Mad) Dog in Their Fight?
December 24, 2018
A war criminal and a fascist walk into an oval office... this could be the beginning of a joke, but the consequences for humanity are anything but.
Trump and his regime’s raison d’ĂȘtre—the reason that they are in power—is to upend what have been the prevailing norms of how the most powerful country in history is ruled and how it enforces and extends its imperialist domination of the world. Over the last few months Trump has been plowing ahead with his fascist program in many ways, including clearing out opposition from within his regime.
"New Communism" and Driving Out Trump and Pence
TYT’s Cenk Uygur spoke with Andy Zee of Refuse Fascism and Revolution Books, NYC, about the threats posed by the Trump/Pence regime.

In a world that is increasingly a nightmare for humanity, Chicago is known worldwide as the killing fields where police shoot down Black people, and where too many youth who have the hardest life under this system shoot at each other. Revolution Club Chicago is fighting to change this to be where people lift their heads and take up making revolution to emancipate all humanity. Right now, you can become part of the networks of people making THIS what Chicago is becoming known for. Your donations are needed to help make happen.

This system has no future for the youth and causes too many to find meaning in taking revenge on each other. The system we're up against, capitalism-imperialism, has white supremacy running all throughout it, has the planet burning from war and environmental destruction, children being tear-gassed on the border, women and LGBTQ people debased and denied basic rights... and
this is now being taken to new levels of hell with the Trump/Pence regime in power. This system needs to be overthrown as soon as possible. Throughout the country, people hardest hit by this system and others who want to see a better world, are working to organize thousands and influence millions for revolution. With your support and involvement, Chicago can be part of changing what people everywhere see as possible.
Many people want a better future for the youth, and for humanity. Together we can make this happen, not because we're better people with bigger hearts, but because we have what is needed and missing to get out of this mess. We have the science to get at the real problem AND the solution, a real revolution. The leader of this revolution, Bob Avakian, has not only developed this science and the strategy for revolution, but also has a deep connection with the very people who most need this revolution, and can break this down for everyone to take up

Your support enables those who have taken this up to continue spreading the word and organizing people into the revolution. Your donations provide backing to those striving to lift their heads up from the dog-eat-dog struggle to survive and raise their sights to emancipating humanity.

Donate today for costs of flyers, posters, books, banners, and t-shirts. Donate to support and maintain the Revolution Club Organizing Center in South Shore, and the full-time volunteers who are in Chicago from across the country throwing all-in on this mission.
Donating enables all this, and is itself a meaningful
and much-needed contribution to making revolution!

Question: What Do You Do With a System
That Gives No Future to Millions of
Black and Latino Youth; Whose Police Brutalize,
Lock Them Up and Even Kill Them in Cold Blood,
and Then Covers It Up?
NOW AVAILABLE: POSTER OF "These People and Many
More—Murdered in Cold Blood Year After Year by Chicago Cops"

Answer: Overthrow It.

Last fall, for the first time in almost 50 years, an on-duty Chicago cop (Jason Van Dyke) was put on trial for murdering Laquan McDonald. The trial was rare, the jury’s conviction for second degree murder even rarer. The trial was rare not because the police in Chicago rarely kill Black youths but because they are never prosecuted for it. From 2010 to 2016, police killed 92 people and wounded 170. Four out of five were Black. Before Van Dyke, no cop has been on trial for shooting while on duty. (Chicago Tribune, August 26, 2016)

Now three former and current Chicago cops are being tried in a bench trial (a trial before a judge, not a jury) for conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and official misconduct, i.e., lying in official police reports to cover up and justify Van Dyke shooting Laquan. Both sides have rested and the judge said she will rule on December 19.

Laquan McDonald was just 17 years old. (His friends morphed their greeting, “Quon Dog” into an affectionate “Corn Dog.”) He had made a new start at an alternative high school on the South Side where the principal described him as quick to smile and hug his teachers. On an October night in 2014, Laquan was already surrounded by multiple police on a major street in an industrial section of the South Side of Chicago when Jason Van Dyke arrived on the scene. Seconds later, he jumped out of his patrol car and opened fire. Laquan crumpled to the ground. Van Dyke paused for a moment and then resumed shooting over and over and over. 16 shots. The eight Chicago pigs on the spot provided no first aid, no comfort. (

If you want to understand WHY this keeps happening over and over for decades; if you want to understand why the oppression of Black people is poured into the foundation of this capitalist-imperialist system and why there is no future for the youth; if you want to understand why the ; Chicago consent decree was a product of the struggle against police brutality but won’t fundamentally solve the problem; if you want to understand why a revolution is the solution and how one could be made... if you agonize about this situation-- then you need to watch the film of Bob Avakian’s talk Why We Need An Actual Revolution And How We Can Really Make Revolution and listen to his answer during a Q& A in Chicago about the consent decree.

Meet with, hear from, learn how to support Maya Diya Cruz. 

My name is Maya Cruz. UChicago wants to put me in prison for 7 years for a silent protest in support of immigrants. I am also banned from campus.  Come meet me and hear about my legal case. 
This is an OUTRAGE!  #FreeMaya  
Sign the petition -

Donate here to legal defense for Maya and
the Revolution Club-Chicago
Maya Cruz faces FELONY charges, 7 years in prison, for a SILENT PROTEST in support of immigrants! She is also banned from the University of Chicago. This is the same university that prides itself on freedom of speech and invited Steven Bannon to speak.
Meanwhile the attacks on immigrants escalate - over 14,000 children in concentration camps. Thousands of women, men and children walk from Honduras and Guatemala (caravan) seeking asylum as Trump sends military troops to the border with orders to shoot!
Maya was part of sounding the alarm on the attacks on immigrants after Trump threatened to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. And all those whose hearts ache over the criminalization of immigrants, need to support Maya.
Come hear her story, watch clips from the silent protest and find out how you can be part of supporting Maya. Drop the charges. #FreeMaya
