A Critical Call for Funds and Sustainers: Fighting to Get RCP Publications on Higher Ground

June 1, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


To all those who are reading this—our fundraising drive is underway. And we continue to put before you the urgent fundraising challenge to put RCP Publications on higher ground. Meeting this challenge depends on YOU.

Think about the significance of what this is all about: RCP Publications is the main way that people connect with the work and leadership of Bob Avakian, including BAsics (which is a free ebook at revcom.us), and the films BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS!, and REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion; A Dialogue Between CORNEL WEST & BOB AVAKIAN. RCP Publications is the publisher of revcom.us/Revolution newspaper, which each and every week and day to day “brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people’s interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution.”

RCP Publications—and especially revcom.us—is the means to connect the people who are working in every corner of society with each other, magnifying and amplifying the efforts of people in different corners of society to act together to fight the power and to join together in a powerful movement for revolution. As that statement goes on to say: Revcom.us/Revolution “is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.”

And in that light, it is at revcom.us—and in the pages of our paper—that the voices of those locked up in the hellholes of America reach tens of thousands here and around the world. It is at revcom.us—and in the pages of the paper—that the real story of Baltimore and Cleveland can be found. It is at revcom.us—and in the pages of the paper—that people can learn how to scientifically view developments in the world—like the moves of ISIS or Saudi Arabia’s bombing of Yemen. Or what is happening in the cultural arena—or in the realm of science.

People from all corners of society and coming from a wide range of views are donating as they question why we are in the situation we are in, what is the source of the outrages that happen every day—from the murder of Black and Latino people, to the abuse and denial of rights to women, to the source of oppression the world over (see testimonials). People across the country are recognizing the importance of this publisher being out in the world as they question: Is there a road forward out of this? This website addresses all these questions from a communist point of view.

But much more is needed. The works we publish from BA and the Revolutionary Communist Party and revcom.us need to be accessible to and touch far more people—everyone who is raising their head at this moment in time needs to know that there is a way to put an end to the horrific conditions and degradation people in this country and this world struggle with every day just to survive and live another day. And more, as they confront the world as it is, what we publish is a key element in wrestling with what is the actual source of the problems—and what is the solution. Broadly in society, people from all walks of life need to be discussing and debating these questions.

Starting from the great challenges humanity faces, in that light grasping the importance of RCP Publications means facing necessity. Continuing to publish these works and maintain revcom.us requires financial support. RCP Publications depends on donations and sustainers from its readers to continue to meet its overhead and to expand its reach. The time to donate is now!

RCP Publications and revcom.us are at a critical juncture. Times are changing... and there is a rapidly growing and ever greater urgency for the works from RCP Publications, especially the works by BA, and revcom.us to be out there, reaching into every corner of society and the world, and to everybody who is rebelling against and questioning the ways things are, and looking for a way out of the madness.

Right now, do three things:

  1. Send a substantial donation through the donate button at revcom.us, through check or money order to RCP Publications, or through your local Revolution distributor.
  2. Get with others and make plans right away to reach out to people you know who visit revcom.us, who read Revolution,and who read books like BAsics from RCP Publications. Challenge them to make a generous donation now. Shore up or restore sustainer relationships, to reach out to others, and to organize ways to collect regular contributions.
  3. Write us with your experiences (we don’t need unnecessary detail, but do need to learn from your experiences, insights, problems, questions, and suggestions).



At the present time, RCP Publications cannot accept any contributions or gifts from readers who reside outside the borders of the United States.
