“It is up to us: to wake up...to shake off the ways they put on us, the ways they have us thinking so they can keep us down and trapped in the same old rat-race...to rise up, as conscious Emancipators of Humanity. The days when this system can just keep on doing what it does to people, here and all over the world...when people are not inspired and organized to stand up against these outrages and to build up the strength to put an end to this madness...those days must be GONE. And they CAN be.”—From the RCP’s “The Revolution We Need, the Leadership We Have.” If this vision moves you... and if you want to be part of making it real... you need to be part of the revolution. Join us at the bookstore on April 21.
