Why we can't lose Revolution Books -
The need for a radically different, liberating world urgently calls out – and yet, consideration of a solution commensurate with the scale and depth of the problem is barely regarded as a legitimate topic for serious conversation. It is for THIS reason that Revolution Books is so urgently needed, and why Revolution Books needs your support now, today: not only to keep its doors open but to grow as a widely known and visited center of a movement for revolution, the place where people find the books and the deep engagement about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a profoundly different world.

You Are Invited to...
…an important meeting to discuss six historic resolutions from the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

These resolutions come at a time when the oppression faced by billions of people is increasingly unbearable, when resistance is flaring up, but when the need is acutely posed for leadership which genuinely enables people to understand the causes of that oppression and to act to uproot and transform it.

Revolutionary communism is the scientific understanding of the kind of radically different and radically better world that IS possible and how to get there. These resolutions focus on the leap in that scientific understanding that has been forged by Bob Avakian and on the overall leadership he provides and models—and what that means for humanity.

Be sure to come. Be part of digging into what these resolutions mean and help figure out how to spread their message further.

additional logistical points

On November 15, 1900 people packed The Riverside Church in New York City to experience the Dialogue between Cornel West and Bob Avakian-REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion.

It was an historic event. Two perspectives were set forth-contending and overlapping, struggling for higher ground, and coming back to unity on the need to ACT.
The video of the entire Dialogue has now been posted!

Watch it here.

An Interview with Raymond Lotta

People need the truth about the communist revolution. The REAL truth. At a time when people are rising up in many places all over the world and seeking out ways forward, THIS alternative is ruled out of order. At a time when even more people are agonizing over and raising big questions about the future, THIS alternative is constantly slandered and maligned and lied about, while those who defend it are given no space to reply. We thought it urgent that we answer the questions and tell the TRUTH about the communist revolution—the real way out of the horrors that people endure today, and the even worse ones they face tomorrow...
