Another Black man has been murdered in cold blood by the police. This time it was Alton Sterling who was confronted by police while selling videos outside his long-time friend's store. The pigs beat him down and shot him. You can see them holding him down and kneeling on his arms while one of the pigs pulls out his gun and shoots Sterling.
The system's mouthpieces are urging that people remain calm and wait for the results of the investigation. The hell with that. We know what happened. We can see what happened and what's in the works. Police have murdered another Black man, and the system is going to work to exonerate the killer cops. We've seen it time and time again – Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Rekia Boyd, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray and now Alton Sterling. This must STOP!
It's part of centuries of savage oppression this system has inflicted on Black people, from slavery thru Jim Crow segregation and lynch mob terror right up to mass incarceration and police terror today. There has been too damn many people murdered by police, especially Black and Brown people. This must STOP!
How long with this white supremacist system continue to get away with unleashing its pigs to brutalize and murder people? Until it's brought down thru revolution – that's how long.

Everybody who hates injustice needs to do 2 things.
One, take to the streets, stand up and make it crystal clear that there MUST be justice! The eyes of the world are on Baton Rouge, and if we act like nothing's happened the authorities and their system will get away with what they're already working on doing – getting the killer cops off. We cannot allow that to happen.
And 2, people need to get ready to make a real revolution to bring this system down. IF you hate the way that police get away with murder and all the other horrors this system brings down on people here and around the world, you need to get with the actual revolution the RCP is organizing for. Get into the work of and follow the leadership of Bob Avakian, the leader of the RCP, who has developed the understanding and strategic approach for making this revolution.
