The Revolution Club is in Chicago for the "Get Into The Revolution" National Organizing Tour 2016-2017. The theme is "America Was Never Great! Overthrow, Don't Vote For, This System!" This tour could not be more timely and it needs YOUR support to accomplish its inspiring goals. Join us this Sunday, Oct. 23 at Elastic Arts, from 4 pm to 6 pm, to meet the tour and contribute urgently needed funds.
As Carl Dix said in the tour's first press release, "Chicago is famous for two things: the police murdering our youth and then covering it up, and the way in which the system has turned these youth against each other. We're going to organize them to turn their anger against this system, and not each other, and to fight to overthrow it. They are also going to campuses where students are questioning, bringing the message everywhere that neither presidential candidate will bring anything but worse misery and exploitation. We need to get organized NOW for an actual revolution."
This tour is bringing alive a radically new morality so needed in this world of horrors that are all rooted in this system, which contains within it the potential for revolution. The why and the how of an actual revolution that could really be made in this country are laid out in a powerful new statement from the Revolutionary Communist Party, HOW WE CAN WIN-How We Can Really Make Revolution."
If you feel this world is intolerable, if you hunger for a radically different world and want to do something to contribute, this Sunday from 4-6 will be an opportunity to engage with this movement for revolution, meet these leaders, and hear about the Revolution Club's audacious plans to organize thousands of people over the next 12 months into the revolution. These plans require serious funds - for travel expenses, food, materials, and more - and they require you!
