Tala Deloria and Andy Zee on What's Going on in the US Right Now, the National Revolution Tour, and the Urgent Need to Drive Out the Trump/Pence Fascist Regime
The past week has been a week of terror against immigrants. Following the massacre of 22 people in El Paso, Texas, by an anti-immigrant fascist, ICE staged the largest immigration raid in decades, rounding up for deportation 680 people in Mississippi. This follows massacres and attempted massacres in Jewish synagogues.
The president of the US continually defames, slanders and threatens Latino people, Black people, immigrants, and Muslims. This white supremacist agitation is whipping people up for a race war, a civil war to “make America white again.” This is FASCISM, pure and simple, and this is a fascist regime in the White House trying, and succeeding, in actually locking in a fascist America. We'll talk with Tala Deloria and Andy Zee from the Get Organized for an Actual Revolution Tour, on why people need to take a stand NOW, why this system cannot be reformed and must be overthrown, and the urgent need to drive out the Trump/Pence fascist regime.
And two short excerpts from Bob Avakian, both from a talk he gave last summer, Why we need an actual revolution, and how we can really make revolution.
The first clip is one of the Five Stops, which my first guests referred to, and it's about the demonization, criminalization and deportations of immigrants, and why that is built into the system of capitalism-imperialism.
The other is from a question and answer period, and it's Bob Avakian's answer to people who complain about immigrants crossing borders.
