Revolution Club poster about Eclipse of 2017

Science, imagination, wonder and awe—part of being human, part of the revolution we are making...

August 28, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |


The Revolution Club, Chicago made posters about the Eclipse of 2017 to put up on walls in some South Side neighborhoods together with news of the revolution. We put up these posters to bring to people the science, imagination, wonder and awe that is part of being human and a key part of the revolution we are making and the kind of world we are fighting to bring into being. This is captured in the quote from Bob Avakian, the leader of the revolution, that is featured on the poster, #4:30 from BAsics.

We also shared the poster with some youths we talked with. One said he knew about eclipses and asked for a poster to put in his room. We talked to a couple of youths about revolution and how we can win. One had a lot of good questions and then he asked, “Why don’t you believe in god?” We said the revolution includes people who believe in god, but we don’t and BA doesn’t because there’s no evidence of god and we need to use science to know what’s real if people are going to get free. One comrade pointed out the eclipse poster we had all been looking at and said, see, the moon revolves around the Earth, and the Earth and the other planets revolve around the sun. We can understand what an eclipse is because of science!
