About

Rust Belt Revolution is a unique grassroots initiative to rescue our society from the radical exploitation of human life and our natural resources. By revealing vital truths that raise public consciousness and connect communities across the nation, we can stop the fascist slide into ecocide. My name is Ron Gavalik, an award-winning professional writer and Media Coordinator for the Green Party of Allegheny County. I've developed this platform to enlist your support in the fight for environmental, labor, economic, and civil justice.

DEFINING THE FIGHT

Reasonable people understand, the United States must be delivered from the blood-soaked claws of corporate dominion and placed back into the hands of popular democracy. What most of us don’t realize is that struggle has centered in the Rust Belt region of the nation.

The hotbed of a once progressive working class suffered industrial abandonment in the 1980s due to the ravages of globalization. In the decades that followed, political grifters ignored budding green technologies and worker empowerment for the sweet taste of fossil fuel plutocracy. Desperate workers in search of purpose, with no other choice for survival, have gravitated toward ecocide via sustainable employment in natural gas fracking.

The world’s former epicenter of steel production in the Greater Pittsburgh area has now become the main battleground in the long fight to reclaim the nation’s moral progress from the death grip of corporate overseers. Committed people like you and me must find the fortitude to empower our communities with democratic understanding and the renaissance of American manufacturing in green technologies.

That work begins with the dissemination of truth to build emotional investment in clean energy, worker dignity, and justice. Knowledge provides each of us the tools to curtail the spiral into despair and transform our society. Failure to engage enough people will lead to a wider class divide. Life expectancy rates will continue to decline. Finally, the impacts of climate change will destroy the ecosystem that sustains organized human life.



FIGHTING FOR TRUTH

Born in Pittsburgh and raised by committed trade-unionists, solidarity through the written word is my life's pursuit. Over the course of a long career, I’ve devoted myself to diverse achievements in communications management for multiple industries. I've also served as the international communications manager for a global scientific society. As Media Coordinator for the Green Party of Allegheny County, I'm now focusing my experience and education on this grassroots struggle. We simply must revitalize democratically organized human life before we cross the 2C threshold set by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2018.

I believe this initiative will be successful, because while the corporations have the money, we have the ability to connect people through truth and moral progress.

SUPPORT THE FIGHT

Your help in this endeavor is absolutely critical. There are several tiers of patronage to choose from, each with corresponding rewards. Your financial activism supports the production, labor, transportation, and technology costs that fulfill the efforts to transform the cultural mindset here in the Rust Belt and beyond. As a patron, you'll receive early access to written content, event briefings, video essays, and photo content that I create. You'll have the opportunity to review my nonpublic strategies and processes. For some patrons, I'll even craft the necessary communications vehicles for your allied efforts in business or activism.

Nothing in this world is easy, but your devotion to the cause can very well make the difference between progress and human destruction.

Every single one of us has a limitless mind, a soul ready to explore the cosmos, a deep imagination, and a true sense of honor. Together, we will unleash that human power to disseminate the truths that connect our communities.

The time to act is NOW.
