Take This Film and Change Everything…

Announcing the Film of Bob Avakian’s Speech:


If you have agonized about the horrors of this society, but did not know why we face all this and thought there was no way out… this filmed speech will reveal why those outrages go on and how they can be changed.

If you have thought that even if people could get together on it, revolution was not really possible up against the powerful repressive machinery we face… this filmed speech will challenge you.

If you have hungered for fundamental change, but did not know where to begin… this filmed speech will give you the map you need and the way to connect.

There has never been a speech like this on this topic before...

This speech will premiere online on October 19. We are raising $5,000 for targeted social media advertising, focused on reaching college students.

Go up against the mainstream message and dominant culture, the ways this system has people thinking this is the best of all possible worlds. Defy all that with a message that can change everything, challenging this generation to raise their sights... and be part of fighting for a whole different way the world could be. Contribute toward this putting this message of revolution before society.

Why You—and Everyone You Know Who Wants a Better World—Should Come to the Preview Screening of the Film of Bob Avakian’s Speech

This next weekend, the film of Bob Avakian’s speech—Why We Need An Actual Revolution And How We Can Really Make Revolution—will be previewed in a number of cities. This will kick off a process where people are broadly taking out the film in many ways, including previewing it to others, to spread the word for the online premiere on October 19-21.

We want to answer some questions about this:

  • Who should come to these previews?
  • What will this film do?
  • What will happen at the previews?
  • How should we build the previews after this weekend?
  • How big does a preview screening have to be?
  • Who can spread this film?

Official Biography of Bob Avakian
How Can We Win? How Can We Really Make Revolution?

A Suggestion from a Reader

One extremely important way to promote the upcoming premieres is through mass emails. These should have a real invitational character to them, but let people know how special this is going to be. I think that people can use or adapt the first four paragraphs of last week's editorial, with a tag line like “A speech on revolution that has never been given before... until now.” Make sure to include how to RSVP. The main thing is not to overcomplicate it but to get this out there to people really soon.
