Presentation and discussion: A REVOLUTIONARY RESPONSE TO THE CONVENTIONS: OVERTHROW, DON'T VOTE FOR, THE SYSTEM.
The Los Angeles bookstore is now open at a temporary location while we continue the search for a new permanent space: Multicultural Artists United (MCAU) Gallery, 220 Glendale Blvd. (between Temple & Beverly). Contact the store at 323-463-3500, or P.O. Box 29141, Los Angeles, CA 90029, or revolutionbooksla.blogspot.com to make donations, raise big funds, find out about book tables and programs, and to contribute in many ways to the campaign to relocate and revitalize the store as soon as possible.
July 19, Tuesday, 7 pm
Movie Night with the Revolution Club: The Central Park Five (2012).Five Black and Latino youths were coerced by the New York City Police Department into confessing to the brutal rape of a white jogger in Central Park in 1989. They were viciously attacked in the media nationwide as a “wolfpack,” and Donald Trump took out a full-page ad calling for their execution. This campaign was an important part of creating an atmosphere that justified mass incarceration. The youths did 7-14 years in prison for a crime they did not commit. This documentary is a must-see in the face of today’s police terror.
