In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America
Carl Dix, a Representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and an advocate for Bob Avakian and his new synthesis of Communism, will join us to talk about the election of Donald Trump. He wrote, "Donald Trump - an ugly fascist who campaigned on promises to build a wall, deport millions of immigrants and ban Muslims from entering the US; who bragged about sexually assaulting women and more - will be the next president of the US. Everybody who opposes injustice has reason to be very concerned for the future of humanity. This concern has already erupted in angry protests, and it needs to move people to waging massive resistance to everything Trump stands for. This is not a time for conciliation or retreat; it's not a time for despair. It's a time for struggle; a time for courage."
Juarez, A Documentary Mythology
The experimental theater Theater Mitu explores the history, contradictions and mythology of the complicated landscape of the US/Mexico border. Juarez, a Documentary Mythology, now at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, uses verbatim transcripts from a three-year series of interviews to create a portrait of two cities, Ciudad Juarez, once called the "Murder Capital of the World," and El Paso, TX, named "The Safest City in America."
We'll speak with two of the actors, Justin Nestor and Denis Butkus.
