Dear friends and comrades, Bring the Ruckus is pleased to announce the
launching of our new web site at http://www.agitatorindex.org
BTR is a revolutionary organization dedicated to the building of a
free society through the struggle against white supremacy. One
of BTR's objectives is to build a strong revolutionary pole in
today's politic. The new web site is designed to help that goal.
People who have visited our old site will notice several changes,
in addition to a totally new look and design.
Radical politics are in a difficult place nowadays. The political
spectrum is filled by conservatism, liberalism, and
fundamentalism, and not much else. Even what passes for left
politics today is basically just a couple steps away from the
Democratic Party, obsessed with opposing Bush, reconciled to
capitalism, and unable to spell out a vision of what a radically
democratic society would look like. In a way, the situation of
radicals is similar to that of conservatives in the late 1950s and
early 1960s. Conservatives then were discredited due to
McCarthyism and had little space in the political spectrum,
squeezed between welfare liberalism and the rising radicalism of
the Black movements. In this climate, William F. Buckley started
the National Review magazine to be an intellectual center of
conservatism, dedicated to carving space for it in the short-term
and to plotting for power in the long-term.

The BTR web site is intended to contribute toward the
development of a radical politics and strategy for the long term.
The site will be updated every 2-3 weeks and will include:

* current analysis of national and world events * in-depth articles
on particular struggles, especially anti-police and anti-prison
struggles (BTR's two main areas of political work) * updates and
happenings of the Bring the Ruckus organization * key
documents and information regarding BTR * flames and
diatribes against the powers that be

Materials posted won't necessarily align exactly with BTR's
politics or be exclusively written by BTR members, but will cover
issues and ideas that we think are important for the development
of a revolutionary American politics.

IN THIS ISSUE: * "A Three-Cornered Fight: Tasks of
Revolutionaries in the 21st Century" by the 2003 Coordinating
Committee of BTR "The new global conflict between liberal
capitalism and religious fundamentalism has no space set out for
a 'left' or for anyone who seeks a world without oppression and
the domination of capital. It has no room for those who want
everyone to have a say in those affairs that affect their daily life.
We must carve that space out..."

* "Bring the Ruckus" by the Phoenix Ruckus collective The
original statement, written in 2001, that brought together BTR as
a national organization

* "A Revolutionary Left" by the Sojourner Truth Organization
"The overriding tendency of the US left, cutting across what
appear to be insurmountable organizational barriers, is towards
centrism and away from its function as a genuine left providing
to the best of its ability an alternative to all forms and alternatives
of capitalist power. ... This situation requires the development of
a left-tendency, willing to function as a left, but avoiding any
messianic sense of its own 'vanguard' character..."

"The role of Bring the Ruckus (BTR) is not to start the revolution - that
can only be the work of millions of the oppressed. Nor is it to lead the
revolution - history shows that vanguard parties destroy
freedom rather than preserve it. Instead, our role is to analyze,
understand, describe, and participate in attempts to shape the
course of history. BTR is a group of committed, politically active,
non-sectarian revolutionaries with a common politics who come
together to develop revolutionary thought and practice and to test
it out in struggle."
