Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Rafa and Amina, two members of the Revolution Club, talk about the protests in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention, and taking out "Time To Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution, Message from the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA" in Cleveland.
Carl Dix, a representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and co-founder of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network. Carl was in Baton Rouge during all the protests following the police murder of Alton Sterling. He talks about the police murders of Black and Brown people, why they are happening, the movement against those murders, and how revolution could end them.
Plus, an excerpt from Revolution and Religion: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion, a Dialogue between Cornel West and Bob Avakian. This dialogue took place in late 2014, before a packed house in the Riverside Church in New York City. Both speakers address two important questions, questions that people have even more today: Is there no value to working to abolish the system while also voting to minimize the immediate damage it does? And, If we avoid voting, how can we avoid the rise of the worst of the right? Cornel West is a prominent and provocative democratic intellectual, and Bob Avakian is the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party. 
Rafa and Amina (Members of the Revolution Club); Carl Dix (Revolutionary Communist Party, Stop Mass Incarceration Network); Bob Avakian (Chairman, Revolutionary Communist Party); Cornel West (Professor, Union Theological Seminary)
