13 Point Human Rights-Based Revolutionary Agenda
By REVOLUTION LA / revolutionla.org

REVOLUTION LA is a political discussion group and revolutionary grassroots movement dedicated to building class-consciousness from the bottom-up through community education, outreach and empowerment.

As the struggle of disadvantaged populations continues to widen through mass unemployment, widespread poverty, income disparities and declining standards of living, many of us are now awakening and realize that change needs to transpire on multiple levels- social, economic, environmental, and political.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that our political system is not run by its citizens, but controlled by a network of economic elites and private interests. The fundamental divide of profit over people must change. The well-being and needs of the people must be placed over profit and private interests or else a future of equal access and opportunity will continue to diminish for generations to come.

REVOLUTION LA's mission is to raise awareness of social, economic and political issues through direct action and dialogue with the community, creating the foundation for wide-scale change. Knowledge is a torch of freedom and the fundamental step towards liberation begins with individual empowerment.

We aim to build a peaceful, people-powered revolution of conscientious active participants organized into a united front. Our objective is to help shift public perception towards true progress, creating the framework for a society that benefits the many and not the few.

It will take a collective effort of shared resources and ideas to restructure our world into one that is founded on economic security, equal opportunity and universal human rights. The limits of tyranny and oppression cannot be challenged until we unite and act to reclaim our power.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.” - Edmund Burke
