"The film brings you up close inside Cornel West's and Bob Avakian's dialogue: the passion, the audacity, the science, the morality, the revolutionary substance. Two courageous voices modeling a morality that refuses to accept injustice – pouring heart and soul into standing together challenging all of us to fight for a world worthy of humanity."

Andy Zee,
co-director of the film


BA Speaks

"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

BAsics 1:13

Do you know anyone else—any person or organization—that has managed to bring forth an actual PLAN for a radically different society, in all its dimensions, and a CONSTITUTION to codify all this? — A different world IS possible — Check out and order online the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal).

What Humanity Needs

At the beginning of 2012, an in-depth interview with Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, was conducted over a period of several days by A. Brooks, a youngergeneration revolutionary who has been inspired by the leadership and body of work of Bob Avakian and the new synthesis of communism this has brought forward.

Special Issue

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.

From the Streets of Baltimore—Protests in the Streets after the Murder of Freddie Gray

From Our Correspondent on the Streets of Baltimore

April 22, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


Baltimore April 22, 6 pm, protests against the murder of Freddie Gray

April 22, 6 pm: This afternoon people gathered at the corner where Freddie Gray was brutalized—before his death. The youth were angry and ready to march. They didn’t want to stick around and have a rally so they started marching down to the police station—seven or eight blocks away. The police station is barricaded with concrete and cops. People have climbed up on the barricades. They are raising their hands “Hands up, don’t shoot.” And chanting: “All night, all day, we are fighting for Freddie Gray!” A strong demand is that ALL the cops involved in his murder be charged— “We want all six!”

Some clergy and activists are in the streets, and so is the Revolution Club with the “Stolen Lives” poster. People are holding up prints of that poster. Overwhelmingly it is younger people, from the neighborhood—even junior high kids—in the street, rallying at the station while others march around the neighborhood.

People are asking “why” does this happen. They are saying “Everybody should be here.” A 50-year-old man told us, “Look at these kids, their nightmares used to be about monsters, now they are about the police.” In the mix: A youth from the streets told our correspondent that “I’m tired of us killing each other, that’s what the police want.” As we post this, protesters are blocking the streets.
