Revolution #229, April 10, 2011
On the Occasion of the Publication of BAsics
A Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World
Monday, April 11, Harlem Stage, NYC
Additional Host Statement...
from Mike Ladd, poet and music producer
[I got behind this event] if anything, to let the community know that there is still a viable voice, a viable set of ideas out there, that this is a voice that can add to a variety of discussions and that it becomes very important with any serious discussion about radical change that is going to happen. I have always had my own relationship with Bob Avakian's work, a lot of it is important, some of it I don't agree with, yet, but I've always followed what he's doing. I think the most important thing is—I don't even care if you disagree with Bob or with what the party is doing. I don't even care if you think that's not cool or their ideas are not in vogue with yours. But if you're interested in change, genuine change, fundamental, systemic change at any level, we need to be getting together en masse and having these discussions in a serious context. And what's going to happen on the 11th is… the more people that are there, that gives more credence to that.
