Revolutionary greetings comrades and free world allies and friends. You know I’m going through a rough time right now but it’s worth it! All of us who have devoted our lives to improving or protecting the lives of others always encounter adversity; there is no struggle without sacrifice – remember that.
On December 4th, 1969 Comrade Fred Hampton and Mark Clark paid the ultimate price. They were assassinated by the Chicago Police Department and FBI while they slept!
Many of us know the story of betrayal that led to the death of these incredible servants of the people. Fred Hampton was the founder of the Rainbow Coalition. He organized Puerto Rican and white comrades around a revolutionary socialist agenda. My comrade justin adkins and I seek to carry on the legacy of Comrade Fred by creating a new version of the Rainbow Coalition encompassing comrades from every corner of society. If you’ve come to the realization that imperialism is exploiting the people and destroying the planet – then join us! You may be surprised what we have to offer.
Today let’s celebrate Comrade Fred’s life!
