Projecting Revolution into Every Corner of Society

Get with the
Revolution Club here
Revolution Club, Chicago
I want to get into BA, where do I start?
“Revolution requires organization: the Revolution Club is where you get organized to fight the power today to STOP the horrors of the system, and to transform the people, FOR REVOLUTION. Revolution requires a scientific approach: the Revolution Club is where you learn BA’s new synthesis of communism, and how to apply it to solve the challenges we face.
“The Revolution Club moves boldly and it moves wisely, up in the face of the enemy, projecting revolution into every corner of society.”
The Revolution Club is beginning now to move in this way in different cities—going out among the people, getting out the word that there is a whole other way to live and fight and die to change the world…that there is a strategy and a leadership, in Bob Avakian and the RCP, to make actual revolution … and leading in actively fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution. The Revolution Club is calling on people both in the projects and elsewhere, youth and others, to take up and "get organized for an actual revolution" …. emphasizing their role in this revolution – AND in making revolution.
As the report from the Revolution Club in Chicago says of their initial efforts, this “shows the potential for people to take up the Time To Get Organized For an ACTUAL Revolution message on their own and as their own, everywhere.”

“Matter of Fact, We Will Tread on Your Nasty-Ass Imperialist Rag”
In the past week, the Revolution Club made a push to make revolutionary communism and the revolutionary leader Bob Avakian much more of an attractive pole, including on the south side of Chicago ... where if this were to be out there in a much more powerful way, growing and contending, it could have a real effect on the whole political terrain in the country .... at a very crucial and politically explosive time nationally.
The whole issue of police murder continues to pulsate through Chicago, where protests erupted last fall after the release of the video of Laquan McDonald being shot 16 times by Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke. On June 30, Gloria Pinex (whose son, Darius, was murdered by pigs in 2011) and the Revolution Club, Chicago, held a press conference/protest in front of a police station in the South side where some of the murdering cops are stationed.
Chicago: Our Revolution Club decided to do an action giving commuters the opportunity to walk on the red, white and blue rag to build for the July 4th picnic.
Message from the Revolution Club in Baltimore Demanding #Justice4FreddieGray
Revolution Club, NYC, in Baltimore: “Justice for Freddie Gray!”… “We are the Revcoms, the mighty, mighty Revcoms!”
On the day that the outrageous “not guilty” verdict was announced for the pig who gave Freddie Gray the “rough ride” that led to his death, a crew from the NYC Revolution Club answered the call to go to Baltimore. They were out in the streets—at the courthouse and in the neighborhood where Freddie lived—to get out the message: “Justice for Freddie Gray! Send those killer cops away! What's the problem? The whole damn system! What's the solution? REVOLUTION!”

HELL NO! to the Outrageous Verdict in the Case of One of the Cops Involved in the Murder of Freddie Gray
The Revolution Club in LA took up the call to take to the streets and say HELL NO! to the outrageous verdict that let yet another cop on trial for murdering Freddie Gray walk totally free. The Revolution Club went out with the RCP Central Committee’s message on a busy corner in South Central L.A., just a few blocks from where 2 weeks earlier the police killed Keith Bursey, a 31-year- old Black man. We got in formation and along with other activists who’d come out, we marched a few blocks to where there is a candle memorial for Keith Bursey. We chanted “Justice for Freddie Gray, Put those killer cops away,” “What’s the problem? The whole damn system! What’s the solution? Revolution!” along with the “Mighty Mighty RevComs” chant.

From the Revolution Club, SF Bay Area: Connecting People at the Dyke March with the RCP Central Committee Message
On Saturday before the massive Pride Parade in SF, people gathered at Dolores Park hours before the Dyke March. Two members of the Revolution Club moved through the crowded walkways, offering people the message from the RCP Central Committee and the article from revcom.us: "On the Horrific Massacre in Orlando and the Need for a Whole New World." Along with the title of the message, we were saying things like, "No more Orlandos—EVER," and "Get with the overthrow of capitalism, end patriarchy, end white supremacy," and "We need to overthrow this system, not vote for it."
