Carl Dix

One Year Into the Age of Obama
THE INTENSIFYING OPPRESSION OF BLACK PEOPLE, CONTINUING CRIMES OF THE SYSTEM AND THE REVOLUTION WE NEED!


Come to Revolution Books and dig into why the change many people hoped for with the election of Obama in reality were false dreams.

Talk with Carl Dix, a representative of the
Revolutionary Communist Party, USA and a longtime revolutionary from the 60's. Last summer, Carl and
Cornel West held an historic event in Harlem attended by 750 people on the theme "The Ascendancy of Obama ... and the Continued Need for Resistance and Liberation.". Let's talk about the very real and intensifying oppression of Black People in the age of Obama... and about the RCP's campaign to put revolution back on the map in this country and introduce people to the leader we have for this revolution in Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

You can view an online talk given by Bob Avakian at

Say NO! to the system of capitalist imperialism...a system in which U.S imperialism is the most monstrous, most oppressive superpower...a system driven by a relentless chase after profit, which brings horror upon horror, a nightmare seemingly without end, for the vast majority of humanity: poverty and squalor...torture and rape...the wholesale domination and degradation of women everywhere...wars, invasions and occupations...assassinations and massacres...planes, missiles, tanks and troops of the USA bombarding people in faraway lands while they sleep in their homes or go about their daily lives, blasting their little children to pieces, cutting down men and women in the prime of life, or in old age, kicking down their doors and dragging them away in the middle of the night...


The days when this system can just keep on doing what it does to people, here and all over the world...when people are not inspired and organized to stand up against these outrages and to build up the strength to put an end to this madness... those days must be GONE and they CAN be. (Excerpts from: The Revolution We Need...The Leadership We Have A Message, And A Call, From the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA)

Bring posters, noise and a determined spirit to build resistance to these war crimes!
