GET WITH THE CAMPAIGN
The Revolutionary Communist Party is in the midst of a major campaign—and you need to know about it, and become part of it.
This campaign aims to let people know what communist revolution is all about... to acquaint them with the leadership that we have for this revolution, Bob Avakian and the RCP, USA which he leads... and to bring people into making this revolution happen, in many different ways.
The idea: to put revolution—this revolution—much more on the map in people’s thinking. To initiate nothing less than a whole new stage of communist revolution, building on the achievements of the past but critically sifting and going beyond them in significant ways... reviving the viability and desirability of communist revolution based on Bob Avakian’s new synthesis, and bringing forward a real social force around this, contending powerfully with the other solutions that are out there.
The Party’s Message and Call, “The Revolution We Need... The Leadership We Have,” forms the glue of this campaign. You can get it online, or in Revolution Books bookstores, or from Party supporters. The video of Bob Avakian’s speech, Revolution: Why It’s Necessary, Why It’s Possible, What It’s All About, forms a basic foundation—and is available on-line. Many of the things we do and talk about in this paper—from the efforts to spread Bob Avakian’s classic talk on revolution… to the fight against the censorship of our paper in the prisons... to the tours by revolutionaries like Raymond Lotta or Sunsara Taylor... to initiatives to “Fight the Power, and Transform the People, for Revolution”... to building the circulation and sustainership of Revolution newspaper—these are all related. They are all getting people to see that, in the words of that message and call, “This is NOT the best of all possible worlds...And we do NOT have to live this way.”
