What: Press Conference
REVCOMS BRING NATIONAL ORGANIZING TOUR TO CHICAGO Where: Cook County (Leighton) Criminal Courthouse 2650 S. California, Chicago When: Tuesday, Oct 18, 9 am Speaking: Carl Dix*
The Revolution Club--also known as the Revcoms--are bringing their National Organizing Tour to Chicago. The theme of the tour is "America Was Never Great! Overthrow, Don't Vote For, This System!"
"Chicago is famous for two things." said Carl Dix, one of the spokespersons for the Tour: "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."
"We'll be going to the campuses, too, where the students are questioning. Our message to everyone: neither of the presidential candidates will bring anything but worse misery and oppression. We need to get organized, NOW, for an actual revolution."
The Revcoms were recently in the news in Chicago after Milwaukee police chief accused them of leading the recent rebellion against police murder in Milwaukee this summer. When asked about this, Dix said "Innocent as charged."
