Last night, Aug. 8th, Larry Everest spoke at Liberty Hall in North Portland. His speech was a call to action for massive protests to "drive out the bush regime" starting on the one-year anniversary of the last presidential election, November 2nd 2005. |
His call to action, compiled with the driving organizations (world cant wait, not in our name), seems very similar to the idea of the anti-war "movement" prior to the start of the latest war on iraq. In his speech he referenced the anti-war "movement" a couple of times, and many more times he referenced the 1960's movements and the power they had behind them; he seemed to be drawing on the energies that existed at hose times, and this call to action is a way to reinvigorate that momentum. I am not holding my breath, but I hope it works.
His ultimate goal is revolution in the united states, he is guided by the ideas of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), and while I dont necessarily agree with all of what they say, I like the fact that he, and other RCP folks are out there seeding the ideas of revolution. I have recorded the full speech, and it is available for download HERE, the speech is prefaced and closed with songs by Anna Roland who is currently on tour and will be playing Liberty Hall this Saturday, August 13th. The question and answer session is separated from the speech, as its own file. The questions are hard to understand, but the answers are not.
