"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."

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.

Call from the Stop Mass Incarceration Network for solidarity actions with Saturday’s Baltimore protests

Updated April 24, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper | received the following from the Stop Mass Incarceration Network: 


To Stop Mass Incarceration Network activists and friends,

Justice for #FreddieGray, Come to Baltimore Now! April 23, 2015

The outpouring of protests in Baltimore responding to the police murder of Freddie Gray is tremendous. It’s another case of the cops brutally murdering a Black man; and the people being told they should suffer this in silence, while waiting for the system to finish its investigations. NO! People were right to stand up here, and they need to keep on standing up and fighting, both as the way to get justice for Freddie Gray and as the way to build a fight to STOP the system from continuing to give a green light to their cops to brutalize and even murder Black and Latino people.

Stop Mass Incarceration Network (SMIN) activists and supporters need to act and respond to the outpourings in Baltimore. We should plan solidarity actions wherever we are so that people can be involved in standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the fight for Justice for Freddie Gray. And if you are close enough to Baltimore to mobilize people to get here, you should come down on Saturday to be part of the SMIN contingent in the march planned for 3PM at the sight of Freddie's arrest and marches to Baltimore City Hall. Contact the New York SMIN at 929-249-7996 to join the contingent. Or the national number at 646-709-1961.

Carl Dix urges those readers who are not able to get to Baltimore to organize protests in solidarity in their own areas on Saturday.
