  • A year-end gathering to watch the film of Bob Avakian’s talk:

    THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America, A Better World IS Possible On the day before New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles, 30 people gathered to watch the film of a talk by Bob Avakian: THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America, A Better World IS Possible. The Bob Avakian Institute sponsored the event, which brought together a diverse group.

  • The BA Institute Leads a Discussion on the Film The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

  • A Country Ruled By White Supremacists—Since When Is That Acceptable?

    by Bob Avakian Jemele Hill, a commentator at ESPN, tweeted that Donald Trump is a white supremacist, whereupon White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders called for Hill to be fired. (She has not been fired but had to issue an apology, saying she should not have implicated ESPN in her comments.) And then there is the comprehensive and compelling case made by Ta-Nehisi Coates, in the current issue of the Atlantic, that Trump’s defining ideology is white supremacy. Here it must be sharply raised: What does it mean, and what does it require people to do, if an overt white […]
