Carl Dix on Revolution Summer in Chicago
Carl Dix, a representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and co-founder of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, is in Chicago with the Revolution Club. All summer, the revolutionaries have been in Chicago with the message: This Summer in Chicago Will NOT Be a Bloodbath of Killing Each Other; This Summer Will NOT Be Free Rein for Police to Murder and Terrorize Black and Brown People; This Summer We Get Organized for Revolution to Emancipate All of Humanity.
The brutalizing,fascistic police have unleashed terror on the people, raiding holiday cook-outs, declaring a daytime martial law curfew, arresting revolutionaries, and threatening and harassing anyone who steps out to support them. People in the neighborhood have responded by blowing whistles, taking videos of the cops. The revolutionaries have vowed not to back down or turn their backs as people are terrorized -- and as the fascist Trump regime sends in more cops and continues to threaten the people.
