Friends of Revolution Books,
Last weekend in Charlottesville Carl Dix joined with thousands who stood up to the fascist thugs. This Sunday Carl will speak to how the Trump/Pence regime was spawned by the system of capitalism/imperialism and why everybody must throw in to drive it out of office NOW, as part of getting ready for revolution!
 
The Trump/Pence regime is consolidating a fascist program that will mean unimaginable horrors for humanity and, as part of that, will bring down a reign of terror on top of centuries of savage oppression of Black people. Carl Dix, drawing on the new synthesis of Communism developed by Bob Avakian, will speak to how this regime was spawned by the system of capitalism/ imperialism and why everybody must throw in to drive it out of office NOW, as part of getting ready for revolution!

Carl Dix is a representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party and a follower of and advocate for Bob Avakian, his leadership and his visionary new synthesis of communism. He is a courageous freedom fighter from the 1960s who went on to become a revolutionary fighter and a communist. Dix spent two years in military prison for refusing to fight in the unjust Vietnam War. He emerged unrepentant and went on to become a founding member of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), USA, dedicating his life to the emancipation of all humanity. Carl is a co-initiator of Refuse Fascism. He co-founded, with Cornel West, the Stop Mass Incarceration Network (SMIN), and initiated Rise Up October that brought thousands into the streets in New York City in 2015 demanding a stop to police terror.

Statement from Carl Dix, from Charlottesville
August 12, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us

by Carl Dix


Groups of white supremacists displaying Confederate flags and white nationalist banners have been roving through Charlottesville all day. They have launched physical attacks on people, and one of them even rammed a car into a crowd of people, killing one person and seriously injuring a number of others. Trump's response to these horrors was to condemn hatred, bigotry, and violence "on many sides," and to say we need to love our country, our God, our flag, and our history.

This is double-barreled. This is not about hatred "on all sides," but about white nationalists glorifying the legacy of the oppression of Black people in this country, and displaying their determination to continue and intensify this oppression.

And love for the country, the flag, and the history of the U.S. is part of what's being used to weld these reactionary white supremacists into shock troops for
the enforcement of fascism in this country. This white supremacist rally was called to prevent a statue of Robert E. Lee, commander of an army that fought to keep slavery in effect, from being removed from a public park. And these white nationalists embraced decades of segregation and lynch mob terror that enforced the subjugation of Black people after slavery was ended. This rally also included celebration of Hitler and all kinds of anti-Jewish poison. This history should not be loved, it needs to be recognized for what it is-a history of savage oppression. It, and the system that spawned it, must be rejected. This history, and the present-day reality, including Trump's insane threats to bring down fire and fury, the likes of which the world has never seen on North Korea, point to the need for an actual revolution, a real fundamental change that brings in a whole different system. And right now these fascists, from Trump down to the white supremacist scum stalking the streets of Charlottesville, are moving quickly to hammer their fascist regime into place. This must be STOPPED, and it's up to us to STOP it.

What is going on in Charlottesville is a direct outgrowth of the Trump/Pence fascist regime. And it is the outlines of a new civil war in this country. These fascists are serious. And we must wake up and confront them with resistance that is just as serious.

And we need to go from resistance to mobilizing to end the nightmare of the Trump/Pence regime. Right now these fascists, from Trump on down, are moving very quickly to hammer into place their fascist regime and this must be STOPPED. The organization Refuse Fascism has called for people to come into the streets and public squares and cities and towns across the country beginning on November 4 and stay in the streets day after day and night after night until the DEMAND is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO! For this to happen, everybody needs to be at August 19regional conferences to organize and mobilize for this.

ON NOVEMBER 4, 2017
Take To The Streets And Public Squares in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night--not stopping--until our DEMAND is met:

On Friday night, the eve of the "United the Right" fascist rally in Charlottesville, a mob of hundreds of torch-wielding white-supremacist neo-Nazis marched through the University of Virginia, yelling fascist, racist, and anti-immigrant slogans. In the midst of this, a group of students from the school held up a banner saying "VA Students Act Against White Supremacy." These students stood their ground in the face of violent threats and attacks from the fascists. The powerful picture of this heroic action spread on Twitter-and clearly inspired many others. Among the responses: "VA students-I've shared this with my two sons. Your display of bravery and humanity is an inspiration for all who want a better world" "Huge respect to these young people for not being intimidated. Millions-actually billions of us share your values." "Fuck Yeah! Now that's humanity."
