Where Will You Be on November 15, 2014?
On September 1, at events in major cities, this announcement was made, followed by a talk.
"I am excited and profoundly honored to make this announcement today--
"Revolution and Religion
The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion
"A Dialogue Between Cornel West and Bob Avakian
Live and in person!
"November 15, 2014, 3-7pm,
The Riverside Church, New York City
"A historic dialogue on a question of great importance in today's world between the Revolutionary Christian Dr. Cornel West, and the Revolutionary Communist leader Bob Avakian".
Wow! Imagine these two people in dialogue. At this moment in time.
Both standing firmly with those at the bottom, those who catch the hardest hell, with a tremendous love for the people, a hatred of oppression. Not accepting of the way things are, fighting for a different future, in their own ways.
Cornel West -- a major public intellectual in the Black prophetic tradition, a revolutionary Christian. And Bob Avakian, BA -- the revolutionary leader who has forged a whole new synthesis of communism.
Flyers and posters of this historic event are available at Revolution Books and at revcom.us. Spread the word!

FUNDS NEEDED: DONATE GENEROUSLY
AND SPREAD THIS APPEAL TO OTHERS
Tens of thousands of dollars are needed for the production of the event and for publicity that will reach millions of people:
in major media, campus newspapers, Black newspapers, Spanish media, on radio and websites with youth audiences, hip-hop sites,
Facebook, Twitter - everywhere. Travel subsidies will make it possible for young people and others from the northeast and
across the country to attend. Funds are also needed to produce a high quality video of the event.
If you are someone who is angered and outraged by the horrors of this
world: the oppression of black people and women, the ruthless wars of
the brink of environmental catastrophe, and you are someone who has
dared to dream of a radically different world, then unleash your
Tune in every Wednesday from July 30 to August 20 to the national webcasts of the Abortion Rights Freedom Ride’s People’s Hearings. These hearings will bring to
light the true state of emergency that exists around women’s right to abortion in Texas and nationwide and will make the case for why massive independent, political
resistance against the national war on women is needed. The People’s Hearings will feature powerful testimony and stories that bring to life what actually happens to
women when abortion is illegal or inaccessible—testimony from before abortion was legalized, from areas in this country where abortion is so inaccessible that women
are now having to resort once again to self-inducing, and from countries where abortion is illegal. There will be testimony from abortion providers, religious and
community leaders, and other advocates for women’s right to abortion.

You Don't Know What You Think You "Know" About...
The Communist Revolution and the
REAL Path to Emancipation:
Its History and Our Future
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... Read More Here
