Revolution Books NY Must Re-Open Soon
People Have Stepped Forward and More Is Needed Now!

September 21, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


Revolution Books NY is at a crucial juncture in its fight to re-open at its new location at 437 Malcolm X Blvd, Harlem, NYC. On May 31, 2015, RB had to close its doors in Chelsea—a downtown neighborhood in New York City. Right away, Revolution Books began to mobilize support to raise big funds and bring forward and mobilize volunteers. What a difference it will make to have the store at the center of the movement for revolution—where people come from all over the world to find the books and engagement about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a radically different way the world could be—re-open in Harlem.

Today, the renovation of the new store is well underway. Over $30K was raised through an Indiegogo Campaign by late August. The final push to open is now on. There is $35,000 more to raise over the next 6-8 weeks to complete renovation and to re-stock the shelves. Donations can be made directly at

Yet in addition to the funds, delays in renovations and city permits have made it necessary to postpone RB's opening. The aim now is to open the store in early October, with a Grand Opening the second week of November.

Think about what's happened in the world just since RB closed: The global refugee crisis has gone to a horrific level of misery. The Obama administration has approved new drilling in the Arctic as global warming intensifies. Police continue to kill with impunity.

If RB were open now there would be RB programs on these burning matters. Think how much this is needed. A place for critical thinking like no other—where the world of ideas and culture interact with the movement for revolution. Where people find and engage the new synthesis of communism brought forward by Bob Avakian, a breakthrough in the scientific method for understanding the world in the most deep-going way, and on that basis making and carrying forward a revolution that can truly emancipate all of humanity.

All who donated to RB thus far have made a great difference, yet more is needed. RB has put out a call that now is the time to donate and join in raising the funds for the flagship Revolution Books at this crucial moment. October 22-24 is Rise Up October in New York City—thousands and thousands will pour into the streets proclaiming to the country and the world: Police murder must stop!

RB's doors must open, and soon.
