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’être—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.
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.

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. (Continue reading here)
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.
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
