World Can't Wait - RCP?

Submitted by PAAMember on December 2, 2005 - 3:00pm. ::

I am attaching a letter I wrote to Charlie related to The World Can't Wait an activist organization I have been moved to be involved with these past 2 months. I want to qualify myself first, as most of you don't know me from Adam - or Eve for that matter...
 
My name is Kate LePree, I am 39 years old, the mother of 3 boys ages 7, 4 and 2.  I stay home with my kids Monday-Friday and work as a nurse doing 2 - 16 hour shifts on Sat and Sun.  I have a rich spiritual life, consider myself a savvy and informed person and would place myself on the political scale as a Democratic Socialist.
 
I tell you this so you get a sense of who I am, the fullness of my life and a feeling for my politics.
 
I would not support or give my limited and precious time and energy to an organization that supports violent action and
"indoctrination/recruiting" into any political party - regardless of their stance on the present issues.
 
With that I add my note.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.  I would love to see this movement empower and unify people instead of creating further polarization in the progressive community.
 
And please take the time to look at the list of endorses for this movement.  Howard Zinn being one of them.  I personally think that his approval speaks volumes about the integrity and mission of The World Can't Wait.
 
Walking toward Peace,
Kate LePree
 
Hi Chas-
This has been a major issue that I have had to struggle with
people about.  I went to the National Meeting of WCW organizers in NYC two weeks ago. WCW was initiated by Sunsara Taylor and Debra Small; members of the RCP. WCW is not an RCP front group as many would say though.  Of the 250 organizers that were in NYC maybe...and I mean maybe 1/10 were RCP.  They are a visible organization for sure and have a notorious rep - co-opting - etc.....But - the rest of us - a larger portion of this organization - are from all different backgrounds - socialist, repub, dem, anarchist, green - on and on.
 
I think it is important to dispel the "rumor" that RCP is "controlling" this movement.  It is a movement of the people; all with a common goal- To assist the Bush Regime in it's own rapid deligitimization, to educate the masses about the immense travesties this administration has committed and continues to commit in the name of "democracy" and to empower those who have awakened to the call to
action...
 
Let me know if you have any further questions.  I'd be glad to answer any questions about WCW.
 
Walking toward Peace-
Kate


There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part, you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, the people who own it, that unless you're free the machine will be prevented from working at all.

Juli,

RCP is the Revolutionary Communist Party. Have you seen the other emails
expressing concern about them? I can forward you several if you want them.

And your politically correct Xmas poem is great!

Hi Chas-

This has been a major issue that I have had to struggle with people
about.  I went to the National Meeting of WCW organizers in
NYC two weeks ago. WCW was initiated by Sunsara Taylor and Debra Small;
members of the RCP. WCW is not an RCP front group as many would say
though.  Of the 250 organizers that were in NYC maybe...and I mean
maybe 1/10 were RCP.  They are a visible organization for sure and have
a notorious rep - co-opting - etc.....But - the rest of us - a larger
portion of this organization - are from all different backgrounds -
socialist, repub, dem, anarchist, green - on and on.

  This might already have been answered, but what is RCP ?

And now for something  completely different ; )


On the 12th
day of the Eurocentrically imposed midwinter festival, my

potential-acquaintance-abuse-survivor gave to me:


Twelve males reclaiming their inner warrior through ritual drumming,



Eleven pipers piping (plus the 18-member pit orchestra made up of
members in
good standing of the Musicians Equity Union as called for in
their union
contract even though they will not be asked to play a note...);



Ten melanin-deprived testosterone-poisoned scions of the patriarchal
ruling
class system leaping;


Nine persons engaged in rythmic
self-expression,


Eight economically disadvantaged but still virginal
Gyno-Americans stealing
milk products from enslaved Bovine-Americans;



Seven endangered swans swimming on federally protected wetlands;



Six enslaved fowl-Americans producing stolen nonhuman animal
products;


Five golden symbols of culturally sanctioned enforced
domestic incarceration;
(Note: after a member of the Animal Liberation Front
threatened to throw red
paint at my computer, the calling birds, French hens
and partridge have been
reintroduced to their native habitat. To avoid
further animal-American
enslavement, the remaining gift package has been
revised).


Four hours of recorded whale songs,


Three
deconstructionist poets;


Two Sierra Club calendars printed on
recycled processed tree carcasses;


And a spotted owl activist
chained to an old-growth pear tree.
