New Book Calls for Fundamental Political and Social Revolution in the United States

Phoenix, Arizona: Controversial publisher Arissa Media Group released a new book today entitled "This Country Must Change: Essays on the Necessity of Revolution in the USA," which calls for fundamental revolutionary change within the United States. The book is edited and co-authored by Craig Rosebraugh, a political activist and author and the former spokesperson for the radical Earth Liberation Front.

This Country Must Change contains essays by twelve authors and activists, all who have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to revolutionary change. Authors include: Ramona Africa, Jake Conroy, Bill Dunne, Ronald Kuykendall, Jaan Laaman, Rob Los Ricos, Jeff Luers, Jalil Muntaqim, Jonathan Paul, Leslie James Pickering, Craig Rosebraugh, and Peter Young.

Back cover copy:

Since 1776, the U.S. Government has been run by and for only the wealthy white man and - especially as of late - his corporate interests. Over this time, this regime has waged a continuous genocidal campaign against Native American nations, an oppressive and murderous campaign against African Americans, against Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Puerto Ricans, women and the poor. The natural environment has been decimated by industries and governmental agencies that prioritize monetary gain over the protection of the Earth. Our air is becoming too polluted to breathe, water too contaminated to drink, and our food supply compromised by chemical herbicides, pesticides and genetic engineering. Millions of animals are used, abused, and slaughtered in the United States annually not out of any necessity, but for purposes of human vanity, fraudulent medical experimentation and product testing, unhealthy dietary consumption, and sadistic entertainment. This is in addition to the millions of people the U.S. government and corporations have killed and displaced internationally as a direct result of U.S. foreign policy interests and imperialism.
This Country Must Change is an effort to further the discussion of the necessity of a fundamental political and social revolution in the United States. It is as inspiring as it is educational and a must read for anyone involved with or considering advocating for political or social change within the U.S. Arguing that reformist measures cannot be relied upon to correct the fundamental problems caused by the corporate elite and political structure in the United States, the contributing authors in this book are unified in their call for a significant revolutionary change in the United States of America.
