Special Revolution supplement on Mexico needs to get out broadly at Mexican Independence Day events this weekend!

Updated Friday September 15, 2006

As Bob Avakian has stressed and is laid out in the Draft Programme, there is an important inter-connection between revolution the U.S. and in Mexico. The current political crisis shaking Mexico is of great importance for people on both sides of the border. With this in mind, over 10,000 copies of a special supplement of the two major articles on this from Revolution #61, “Mexico: the Political Volcano Rumbles” and “Who is AMLO, What Is His Program and Where Does it Lead?” are being printed for the major outpourings of people expected at events in the NYC area this weekend, which marks the anniversary of Mexico’s (and El Salvador and other Central American countries) independence from Spain. These supplements need to get out broadly. This can have a very real impact both on the political terrain here and aiding and supporting our brothers and sisters in Mexico. Further, inspiration and lessons from this can inspire many to act in the battle in the U.S. to Drive Out the Bush Regime.

Contributions are urgently needed for publishing this supplement. Please drop off generous contributions at Revolution Books.
