The event, which is titled, “Battle for Berkeley: Why It’s Right and Righteous to Drive Fascists Off Campus, and Out of Power,” is scheduled for 6 PM on Thursday, May 4. Advertised as a “talk and challenge to debate,” the event is being held near the heart of the UC Berkeley campus.
The discussion is being led by Sunsara Taylor, a leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, who has argued for “driving this regime out” with regards to Donald Trump’s presidency. A flyer advertising for the event describes Taylor as a “revolutionary communist and a follower of Bob Avakian.” Avakian, a graduate of UC Berkeley, is the chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party.
