Revolution newspaper/revcom.us, the voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, provides the foundation, guideline, and organizational scaffolding for the whole process of carrying out our strategy for revolution. Through publishing works of Bob Avakian, and through many different articles, interviews, letters, graphics, and other features, revcom.us enables people to really understand, and act to radically change, the world. It exposes why things are the way they are...it reveals why it doesn't have to be this way... it shows how we can act to bring about a real revolution. It is, and has to increasingly become, the scaffolding on which the movement for revolution is built, the means for people to get organizationally linked up to this movement. It is a vehicle through which new people can get a clear sense of the principles, aims, and methods of this revolution, and those who are already involved can wrangle with how to further build this movement for revolution. This newspaper is a guideline where today thousands, but soon tens of thousands and eventually millions, can stay connected and learn to act in a powerful and united way. It sets forth the larger goals of revolution and communism and the ways in which the struggles of today are connected to those larger goals. It enables people to grasp the scientific communist outlook and method, and to better understand the material basis that exists for getting to a radically different and better world.

This week the House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump. This was a major event--and a very good thing! Even with the narrow terms on which the Democrats carried this out, people seized on this with enthusiasm. Thousands poured into the streets, both furious and exhilarated at the fact that Trump was finally beginning to be held accountable for some of his towering crimes.

The utterly illegitimate Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is planning another escalation, on top of the horror at the border, against immigrants without papers living within the U.S. The horror of the children tormented at the border will now be expanded to a whole other level. Across the sea, in Africa, Europe connives in the bombing of Africans locked down in Libyan concentration camps.
SHARE Sunday, May 5, 2019 5 Reasons 'The Green New Deal' Is Misleading, Dangerous and Part of the Problem
Does the Green New Deal offer a practical and immediate way to solve the crisis of global warming? No! It leaves in place the system of capitalism-imperialism, the very cause of global warming, with its production for profit, its oil/energy corporations, and the U.S. military machine. In fact a radical rupture is required in how what is today the United States interacts with the rest of the world and with the natural world.

Unless we want to be fighting the same system 64 years from now, unless we want to be defending yet another black youth who has been unjustly cut down by a system that never gave him or her a chance, we need to be preparing right now to rise up in righteous mass resistance against this system if they free Laquan McDonald's killer, and we need to do this as part of politically preparing for revolution.
