Hundreds Attend the Preview Screenings of


A speech by
Bob Avakian

A Good Beginning … Be a part of inviting thousands to see it ...


People were rapt… taking in and wrestling with the stark case that Bob Avakian (BA) makes in Part 1 of this film for why we face only two choices: either we live with the horrors that this system brings down on the people, or, we make revolution. Then, in Part 2, he breaks down a question that has bedeviled people for decades and more: How we could really make revolution in a country like this and what we have to do now to make that real. People were inspired and provoked to think about what they had never imagined possible.

If you were moved by what BA said, if you think people you know and people everywhere who yearn for a better world need to see this … then, read on and be a part of letting people know there is a leader of, and plan for, revolution—and there is a film that brings that home.

We are building for the October 19 Online Premiere of the film at www.revcom.us. The aim over the next few weeks is to spread the word and build political momentum and movement so that thousands tune in on the weekend that begins October 19.

What’s next? FOUR THINGS TO DO

Show the film wherever we can.

Pull together family or friends or people we work with… take it to groups and classes at school … wherever … let people see this and learn about the revolution. Let them experience Bob Avakian, the leader of the revolution and the developer of the new communism that is the road to emancipating humanity. Give people ways, from small to large, to get involved in spreading this. Where possible, more experienced people should be paired with less experienced, but everyone can do this. To get a copy of the film to show to your group, contact Revolution Books, or the Revolution Club in your area, or write to revolution.reports@yahoo.com for an advance screening link. Read “How to be part of a mass movement to spread BA's speech.”

Raise money. The next 2 weekends are fundraising weekends for the film!

We need money to get word of this film out to thousands! Many people, once they see the trailer, will want a chance to support the movement to spread this film. When you ask people to donate you are giving them an opportunity to be a part of a national effort to change the world. Everyone who wants this film to be seen should be planning and organizing now for these weekend efforts. And, fundraising should be part of everything we all do—when we are talking to individuals, or groups, or just spreading the word on social media or on the streets. It’s a key part of getting organized for revolution. There’s an online fundraising campaign. Anyone can do it, and there are many ways to fundraise—from shaking the can, to bake sales, to fundraising parties. Send in your ideas and experience (write to revolution.reports@yahoo.com).

Get out promo materials 

Let’s get promotional palm cards and posters out into different neighborhoods, so people are anticipating and looking for the premiere of the film on October 19. People can do this alone, but it’s more fun and effective for a bunch of people to tackle a neighborhood or a campus.

Post on social media.

Let’s brainstorm on how to use the social networks that we’re on, and get onto ones we’re not, to spread the trailer of the film and build for the online premiere on October 19.

IMPORTANT: Your ideas and your accounts of your experience are vital to this movement. We are all needed to get to work on this with both our efforts and our thoughts. So let’s hear them (write to revolution.reports@yahoo.com)!

If after seeing this film you want to get more involved with and be a part of the movement for an actual revolution, revcom.us is the website you should go to everyday. And, get deeper into BA and check out: Organizing for an ACTUAL Revolution—Getting Involved Now.
