The Revolution is Coming !!!
I just read the most uplifting message from a group that I have followed for several years now. And it's going to mean a change in our way of life. The people are taking back control of their lives. May Day is next week. It is also the 1st of the month, which means rent is due; bills are due. If you are one of those people that have been furloughed, then you know what this is going to mean. You can't pay for them!
One-third of renters were unable to pay their April rents. Even more, people will be unable to pay rents in May. The level of unemployment has not been this high since the Great Depression during the 1930s. So tell me, what has the government done to help you? Oh yeah! They sent you a check for $1200. If you're living in New York City, you know how far that will go. The average rent in New York City for a one-bedroom apartment is over $2400 a month.
What's that? You want to eat too. If it weren't for the Mutual Aid Centers that organizations have set up, thousands of people would have starved in these last few weeks.
On May 1st, this city, this country will be under the control of the people. Essential workers will refuse to work; Amazon workers will strike; renters and renter supporters will not pay rents. The people will demonstrate for prisoners unable to be free from the coronavirus. The people will not allow renters to be evicted for not paying rents.
The capitalists have created this mess, but the people will end the capitalist rule. Things must not return to normal as they were two months ago. It is time to stand up and demand the equalization of citizens.
We will be back to cover this issue in the coming days. Get ready!
