Build the Momentum for the October 8 Book Launch of THE NEW COMMUNISM by Bob Avakian
October 1, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
THE NEW COMMUNISM: The science, the strategy, the leadership for an actual revolution, and a radically new society on the road to real emancipation, by Bob Avakian, can change the discourse on what is needed, possible and desirable to confront and deal with what vast sections of humanity are facing. THE NEW COMMUNISM can speak to and attract millions who do care, who are angry and unsettled—about wanton police brutality and murder and the oppression of Black people, a migrant crisis from lands devastated by war, outmoded ideologies and global warming, electoral choices dictated by this system and its many, many other horrors—and who "agonize over whether fundamental change is really possible." THE NEW COMMUNISM, in title, content and look, represents something radically new on the horizon, demarcating with what came before, bringing forward a fully scientific approach and resolution to what it will take for an actual revolution and a radically different society on the road to emancipating all of humanity.
This is why it is really important that we let everyone know about and feel compelled to attend and engage the book and the October 8 launch of the book, why this matters! People will learn about and be able to buy this book, and find out how to spread this. They’ll learn about the leadership of Bob Avakian (BA), who combines theory on a world-class level with a deep feeling for and connection to those who catch the hardest hell every day in this society. And they’ll hear Carl Dix and Cornel West get into their own responses to this pathbreaking work and BA.
Let’s get the word out every day from now until October 8. This weekend, we are making a really big push to secure 100 new commitments—selling tickets and blocks of tickets, with commensurate sales of THE NEW COMMUNISM. And this Monday at 7 p.m. at Revolution Books in New York, everyone who wants to be part of and contribute to this whole process will get together to sum up and make further plans.
Let’s plunge into key sections of society where there is ferment and dynamism, and let’s bring forward people in waves—to spread this, to get involved and build for this, to engage as they go, and to “get organized into the revolution,” including coming to Revolution Books in New York on Monday at 7 p.m. And come to revcom.us every day to find out new developments toward the 8th.
