"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 younger generation 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.

Food for Thought:
Walter Scott, Michael Brown

April 27, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


Think about what has been revealed in the recent egregious murder by police in South Carolina, where a cop chased and shot to death Walter Scott—a Black man who, once again, was unarmed and was fleeing from the cop. In particular, think about the glaring discrepancies between what was revealed in a video taken of this shooting (by a bystander) and what the cop reported about this “incident” BEFORE he knew that there was such a video!

Why are we still fighting for justice in 2015?

"Why are we still fighting for justice in 2015?" is a clip from the film REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion; A Dialogue Between CORNEL WEST & BOB AVAKIAN. The film is of the November 2014 historic Dialogue on a question of great importance in today's world between the Revolutionary Christian Cornel West and the Revolutionary Communist Bob Avakian. Watch the entire film here.

Then think about what the INJustice Department has done around the murder of Mike Brown. Think about what this discrepancy in the Walter Scott case in South Carolina tells you about the difference between what, yes, very credible witnesses said about the murder of Mike Brown, including specifically that he DID have his hands up, and what the pig Wilson said, which the prosecutor put before the grand jury and which the INJustice Department chose to believe and uphold (as we have pointed out, they took this concocted story and treated it as the truth, and as the standard against which other accounts should be measured, including those of people who, unlike Wilson, did not have a direct stake in the matter, and who made clear that Mike Brown was first running away and then turned AND DID HAVE HIS HANDS UP!) (See “DOJ Report: Coverup for the Police Murder of Michael Brown.)

Finally, think about this: It would have been much more difficult for the powers-that-be to adopt this whitewash of the pig Darren Wilson as their “verdict” (and the standard against which to measure, and to dismiss, accounts making clear that Mike Brown had his hands up) if, along with considerable eyewitness testimony indicating Mike Brown DID have his hands up, after running away and being shot at while running away, there had been a video of the actual shooting of Mike Brown, as there was in the case of Walter Scott. (In the case of the murder of Walter Scott, the cop is currently facing a charge of murder and may actually go to trial, for something—which is, in part, due to the existence of the video which shows what actually happened, but is due to a much greater extent to the mass outrage and outpouring of protest and resistance that has arisen in very righteous response to the murder, and the non-indictment of the murderer, of Mike Brown, as well as Eric Garner, and the reality that these two egregious murders are part of a much larger pattern, a continuing chain of such outrageous murders by police—and remember that there was a video in the case of Eric Garner).
