Revolutionary Anarchist Youth flyer on the Amway co-founders

Editor’s note: A dear friend and comrade, Cole Dorsey passed away recently and one of his family members passed along some of the archival materials he saved, which is what this post is about.

In the mid-1990s, the group Revolutionary Anarchist Youth (RAY) was active in Grand Rapids, doing important organizing work, along with disruptive actions and providing an analysis of politics in Grand Rapids. We came across this flyer/handout which addresses not only the wealth and greed of Amway co-founders Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel, it talks about how the increased investment from the Capitalist Class in downtown Grand Rapids impacted the surrounding neighborhoods and increased police presence, which disproportionately impacted Heartside residents and dissidents, like the members of the Revolutionary Anarchist Youth.

Here is the flyer/handout that we believe was from 1996.
