At Revolution Books in NYC on Tues. June 29 - The U.S. War of Occupation in Afghanistan: McChrystal Out, The Horror Grinds On... What is Happening?

Tues. June 29 at 7:00 - Sunsara Taylor
presentation and discussion.

Obama's recent firing of General McChrystal as top general in Afghanistan is a big deal-- and reflects serious contention among sections of the U.S. ruling class over how to prosecute this bloody occupation. It's been 60 years since a president removed the senior commander in a war zone. McChrystal will be replaced by another war criminal, David Petraeus, who was already head of "Central Command," (McChrystal's boss). The Washington Post quotes Obama: "This is a change in personnel, but it is not a change in policy." Translation: The criminal war in Afghanistan-- which on June 4, 2010 officially became the longest war in U.S. history -- continues.

Come discuss this cauldron of contradictions with Sunsara Taylor at -

Revolution Books, 146 West 26th Street, NYC 212-691-3345

Revolution gets started at the USSF 2010

Clips of day 1 orientation for the revolutionary communists and friends at the US Social Forum in Detroit.

This was followed by a beautiful march that grew as it made its way through Detroit.

More updates to come... but one thing about Detroit is that there is not a lot of internet connection in a lot of places so I haven't been able to blog as much as I intended to.  Am still learning where I can get access and hope to do more.

In Case You Needed More Reasons to Love Outernational...

Check out this blog on the shitstorm they seem to have kicked up for comparing Arizona to South Africa under apartheid.

As Outernational got booed for challenging the anti-immigrant legislation as they performed in Arizona... Miles Solay, their lead singer, seemed to have completely kept his composure.  According to one audience member's blog, Miles responded with lines like: "The people that just booed, their favorite band[s are] really Ted Nugent and Lynyrd Skynyrd," and, as he pointed at one particular person, "When they lynched Black people, this guy was cheering along."

Check them out here:

Make sure you check out the cover they did with Tom Morello of DEPORTEES.
