Happy 4th of July!
Let us never forget that on the 4th of July, we celebrate radicalism and violent revolution against an oppressor class!!! There is no other way to see it. The 4th belongs to the rebels and the revolutionaries, not to the flag-waving Tea Party GOP and their jingoistic chants of "U.S.A! U.S.A!"
The 4th or July belongs to the Black Panthers, the #WIUnion members marching in Madison, the folks in Ohio fighting every day to reclaim their rights. It belongs to the victims of the Haymarket masacre, the women and girls of the Triangle fire, to Mother Jones, Big Bill Heywood, John Reed, and the textile girls of Lowell. The Revolution belongs to these People.
And perhaps, most importantly, this revolution belongs to you.
