Delivering the NO! at the RNC; The Battle for a Revolutionary Summation (tags)
As we sum up the week of protest at the RNC and look to the struggles ahead, we should think about those who will be cracking history books in the future. We need to think about this today as we run the streets and struggle to win hearts and minds, fighting for a whole different world.
