On Thursday, July 29 be part of a campaign to reach 5000 views of this powerful clip. As part of a movement of resistance to stop SB 1070, we need to repolarize for revolution, introducing people to Bob Avakian, the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party and of the revolution, and enabling them to see the source of the problem is the system and that through the solution-revolution-a radically different world is possible, and thus raise their sights as to what is possible...
Imagine: You have a family you're supporting; you're on your way to the grocery store, or to work, or to pick up your children from school. You see a patrol car behind you. You realize if the cop stops you, he is going to demand you show your papers, and you know you can't. You'll be taken to immigration, locked in a detention center until you're deported, and getting back is nearly impossible. What will happen to your children when you're locked up? Who will take care of them? And if they're with you when you're stopped, will they be incarcerated as well? Will your family be separated, or given the "option" of everyone being deported, including children who are U.S. citizens.

Demands 100 Actions! Cities, Towns, Communities...Globally-the environment has no borders! Friday, July 30th 2010.
Because the oil gusher may not be capped
Because 100-200 million gallons of oil & 2 million of dispersants still foul the Gulf
Because wetlands, shores, wild and marine life are still threatened
Because people's health still isn't protected
Because the truth is still not out
Because oil companies and government still want to "drill, baby, drill"
Because we're not stopping until the well is sealed and the Gulf is healed

There will be major fundraising efforts for Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund the weekend of August 7-8. These include a PRLF phone-a-thon on August 7 and a segment for PRLF in a web-a-thon for the Campaign "The Revolution We Need: The Leadership We Have" on August 8. The PRLF portion will feature powerful readings of letters from prisoners, some you can see now on youtube at prlfvideos. The goal is to raise $3,500, funds that are urgently needed to renew existing Revolution newspaper subscriptions to prisoners and to fulfill hundreds of requests for subs on a waiting list.
