June 15-30: Join Revolution Books in Detroit

Aiyanna Protest - Detroit.jpg
US SOCIAL FORUM
BE THERE!
Put Revolution on the Map
On May 12th, the Detroit police murdered 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones. Then they treated her family like criminals, arresting her grandmother and testing her for drugs and gun powder residue and making her father lay on the floor in the very room his little girl had just been blown away in, his face in her still warm blood.
AND from June 22-26 thousands of people from all over the country, and beyond, are coming to Detroit for the US Social Forum. They will be putting their heads together and debating about how to make a different and better world.
The Revolutionary Communist Party has put out a call for volunteers
to go to Detroit and put revolution on the map in the midst of this hot mix. (You Tube Video of Call Here)
Get there June 15th and stay for the whole time. Be there for the United States Social Forum June 22-26, and bring the outrage of the masses in Detroit at this murder into this important gathering of radical activists. And bring the desire of these activists for a better world out among the masses in Detroit. Get there for any part of this time that you can. But get there.

Volunteer at Revolution Books
Step up Revolutionary Work in Chicago
Some of those who have volunteered to go to Detroit currently play an important roles in Chicago: As volunteers at Revolution Books they make it possible to keep the doors of the bookstore open. As distributors of Revolution newspaper, they connect people from neighborhoods of the oppressed and people from college campuses with the movement for revolution. And this is only part of the contributions these volunteers are making.
We are calling of people - if you aren't volunteering to go to Detroit - step up to fill the shoes of those who are going.
