The Revolution Club proteste…
The Revolution Club protested the “toxic chauvinism and reactionary ideas of all stripes coming out of the Republican National Convention,” and on July 20,  burned a U.S. Flag outside the convention . Joey Johnson and 16 others, overwhelmingly members of the Revolution Club, were assaulted by police, arrested, and face serious charges and jail time. Over $13,000 has been raised to support the Club's work...but the immediate need is to make the campaign's goal of $15,000 this week.

At a Cleveland pretrial hearing on Monday, August 22, the prosecutor refused to drop charges for Gregory “Joey” Johnson who is charged with assaulting two Infowars reactionaries. One of them bragged in a You Tube video, “I ripped {Johnson's] shirt off and just punched him and kicked him, man...we just did everything we could.” Joey stated, “Understand this, the alleged victims of the assault I am charged with have stated publicly that they consciously set out to prevent me from burning the flag – a legally protected form of speech – and that their very presence in the area was to accomplish that which is an illegal act on their part.”

It is totally outrageous that charges were not dropped. The Cleveland police and prosecutors are collaborating with so-called reporters from the right-wing conspiratorialist and Trump-supporting website Infowars. The prosecutors' intent is to punish people for their powerful, peaceful political statement that day. Instead of dismissing the charges, the court is “upping the ante.” It is requiring some out of state defendants (including several from California) to attend every Cleveland court hearing.

The stakes are high. Everyone who supports the right to political dissent needs to be part of defeating this attack on Joey Johnson and the RNC16.

Lots of money is needed to wage a successful political and legal struggle to continue to force the authorities to drop the charges, and if they don’t, for Joey Johnson and the RNC16 to be found not guilty! Money is needed for their air fare and expenses while in Cleveland, and for costs associated with their legal defense. We urge you to:

Sign the Call to drop the charges [http://org.salsalabs.com/o/1170/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=20203].

Donate again if you can and share the campaign with your friends to reach the $15,000 goal.

Money is needed for their air fare and expenses while in Cleveland. Money is needed to promote, circulate, and get signatures for the Call http://org.salsalabs.com/o/1170/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=20203 to drop the charges. It will make a difference if funds are raised to publish the Call in major media and for Joey Johnson to speak on radio, TV, and in other media.

It will make a difference if you share the campaign with your family and friends to reach the $15,000 goal. Over $13,000 has been raised. Let's go over the top this week!

Thank you for generously donating to the Revolution Club at the RNC & DNC. Your contribution is helping the Revolution Club to organize people for an ACTUAL revolution at the soonest possible time and defending Joey Johnson and others that were illegitimately arrested and charged for burning the blood drenched American flag at the RNC. Please share this campaign with others.

As a powerful statement that "America was NEVER great," and to expose their view that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are, "Criminal choices of a criminal system that must be overthrown," Joey Johnson, revolutionary communist leader Carl Dix, and the Revolution Club will the burn the U.S. flag in Philadelphia for the culmination of the DNC on Thursday.
