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.

In dialogue, talking about Revolution and Religion. Read more . . .

Flyers and posters of this historic event are available at Revolution Books and at revcom.us. Spread the word!

Abortion Rights Freedom Ride 2014 - GROUND ZERO TEXAS

People’s Hearings still viewable here

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.

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...
