„… wir sind gekommen, um mit Dir über Bob Avakian zu reden …“

Posted by entdinglichung - 13. Oktober 2010

Die Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, Mama-Organisation der Revolutionären Kommunisten BRD/RIM (gibt es die überhaupt noch?) schickte zwei ihrer Missionare zum diesjährigen Burning Man-Festival in die Wüste von Nevada um das Wort ihres grossen Vorsitzenden, seiner göttlichen Heiligkeit BOB AVAkian zu verkündigen:

„There is a great need for people who are yearning for a different, better world to be introduced to Bob Avakian and his revolutionary vision of the most radical rupture with traditional property relations and traditional ideas, and a vibrant, exciting communist world in which people would really thrive—the unleashing of art and science, awe and wonder, ferment and imagination in mind-boggling dimensions.

Two of us went to Burning Man art to popularize Bob Avakian among 50,000 people.“

wie bei vergleichbaren Missionsvereinen soll niemand eine Chance haben, der Botschaft zu entgehen:

„Before the event, I got permission to install a number of 3′ by 4′ enlargements of the image of the Chairman along a 90-mile stretch of highway (between Wadsworth, Nevada and the Black Rock Desert or „the Playa,“ as it is known to „Burners“). Virtually everyone attending the event must travel this route.

The signs were double-sided. People could see them going to and coming back from the festival.“

heilige Bob Avakian-Ikone, eine Berührung kann bei wahrhaft Gläubigen eitrige Pusteln heilen

und auch ein Altar zwecks Anbetung wurde errichtet und Heiligenbildchen verteilt:

„We installed a large flashing neon version of Bob Avakian’s image in the midst of the art on the playa. Although only visible at night, it looked great! Hundreds of image cards were distributed at the festival itself—left at camps, many of the numerous free bars and parties, and stuck in the spokes of participants‘ bicycles.“

beim nächsten Festival in San Francisco wurde das Missionarsteam wiedererkannt:

“ Another young Latina ran up to a person wearing the image shirt. Poking him in the chest, she demanded, „I’ve got to know, you’ve got to tell me, Who Is This?!“ The three enlarged images along the highway to Burning Man had seemed hundreds to her. She saw the cards everywhere. Then, she and her friends were walking on „the playa“ at night when they came across the image of the Chairman flashing brightly. „We were so frustrated! We all sat down right there for a half-hour, trying to figure out who it was.“

The image had been imprinted on her brain since Burning Man. She said she had kind of forgotten about it, but „when I saw it again, it all came back to me and I had to find out.“ It took her a full week, but she finally got her answer. She, and two young men, volunteered to be part of a revolution crew at Burning Man next year.“

have you let Bob Avakian into your life? … und verpflichteten sich, dem grossen Avakian ihre Seele und ihr erstgeborenes Kind zu übereignen

„A total of 3,500 of the Message and Call were distributed at the Power to the Peaceful Concert, and on another level, we all got a deeper appreciation of the power of the image to generate interest on a grand scale, and getting out the name Bob Avakian as a Revolutionary Communist leader, and the Message and Call for all to dig into.“

und schon naht der nächste Missionseinsatz:

„Needed: $10,000 for Publication
Coming soon from the Revolutionary Communist Party:

(Draft Proposal)

The RCP, USA announces with great enthusiasm the upcoming publication of the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal).

This Constitution will be a historic and visionary model of the future revolutionary socialist society and government. At the same time, it will give people a very concrete sense of how the new power would be constituted and exercised in the new society. People will get a feel, and an in-depth understanding, of how that new, revolutionary state power could work to truly usher in a new world, a world in which people would want to live and could flourish.“

wer mit „grosser Begeisterung“ einen Verfassungsentwurf publiziert ist entweder kurz davor die Macht zu übernehmen oder tut im Märchenwald leben

nicht Slavoj Žižek 2010 sondern Bob Avakian (Praise the Bob!) 1981

Zwei Solidaritätsaufrufe

* Colombia: Free jailed university lecturer and trade unionist

Miguel Ángel Beltrán Villegas, a Colombian university lecturer and unionist was tried in 2009 by Álvaro Uribe’s government, on charges of „rebellion“ and „breaking the law for terrorist purposes“. One year after his imprisonment there has been no evidence to support the allegations against him. During his teaching career, Dr. Beltrán has published various articles and academic papers questioning the official version of the Colombian civil war. He has also criticised Colombia’s education policy and human rights abuses in the country. Education International is deeply concerned that professor Beltrán has been imprisoned for his political beliefs, like so many other teachers in Colombia, without having committed any crime.

* Thailand: Migrant workers have the right to workers‘ compensation

At least 2 million migrants from Burma work in low-skilled, dirty and dangerous jobs in Thailand from which they frequently incur accidents and disease. Since 2001, Thailand has discriminated against migrant work accident victims from Burma by denying them access to the Workmen’s Compensation Fund (WCF), even though all workers regardless of national origin are legally eligible for access to this fund. These work accident victims are denied access to work accident compensation from the WCF, rehabilitation assistance and are also denied the right to register as disabled if they suffer permanent disabilities at work. This denial is on the basis that most of these workers were smuggled into Thailand “illegally,” despite more than 1 million of them registering to legally work. The State Enterprise Workers Relations Confederation (SERC), an affiliate of the ITUC, has since 2007 demanded an end to this systematic discrimination against all migrants in Thailand to ensure their access to the WCF equally with Thai workers. The ILO’s Committee of Experts in February 2010 responded to a SERC complaint on this issue stating denial of access to the WCF to migrants from Burma breaches ILO Convention 19 on equality of accident compensation. Thailand then announced plans to set up an insurance scheme managed by private insurance companies to provide compensation to migrant work accident victims. SERC disagrees with this proposal as it is discriminatory and unlawful, but despite our protests, the Government continues to push ahead with this scheme.
