To deeply understand the threat to humanity posed by the Trump/Pence Regime… Watch this film of a talk by Bob Avakian
Bob Avakian is the revolutionary leader who has brought forward a new communism, and in that context and as part of that, he has – for decades – been identifying and warning of the development of a fascist movement in the US backed by very powerful forces in society. He identified the ominous and critical escalation of moves to impose fascism with the election of Trump and Pence in 2016. and his work informed many of those who initiated a diverse group to form Refuse Fascism with the aim of uniting everyone who understands Trump and Pence pose an existential threat to humanity to drive out the regime. Bob Avakian’s speech, made into a film, The Trump-Pence Regime Must Go!; In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America; A Better World IS Possible is invaluable for understanding and uniting broadly to drive out this regime.
