A Letter Calling for Support for the National Get Organized for an Actual Revolution Tour

| revcom.us


Revcom.us received the following email from Revolution Books NYC. They had sent the email to people who have donated to the National Get Organized for An Actual Revolution Tour, or who have supported it in various ways. We are posting this so others can use it, modifying it for local information and activities. This letter could be sent both to those already supporting the tour, and to those who should be supporting the tour.

Dear friends,

We want to extend a shout-out to the National Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution Tour which has now been active in Los Angeles for a few weeks and to all of you who have supported the tour by spreading the word, donating much needed funds and more.

We want to share some of the highlights from the Tour, return to the great need humanity faces... for revolution, and the difference we make by what we choose to do.

"We have two choices, either, live with all this—and condemn future generations to the same, or worse, if they have a future at all—or, make revolution!" —Bob Avakian, the leader of the revolution

These are the only 2 choices. Which one will you choose?

Monday Sunsara Taylor hosted guest, Andy Zee on KPFK in Los Angeles on her radio show, We Only Want the World: Mueller Report, Trump's Response and the Interest of the People.  You can listen to the archive here: revcom.us

The Tour has been taking actual revolution to where things are the hottest:  Making the decision to go to Sacramento where Stephon Clark was murdered in cold blood by the police they posed a challenge to people there. 

Read the whole report here: 
Taking the Revolution To Where Things Are Hottest.

As the Revolution Club, Los Angeles, statement on Stephon Clark said: "Ask yourself: Are we going to protest for days or weeks and then allow our anger to be corralled and swept into the killing confines of this system that shows us over and over again that you can’t vote this shit away or tweak some law that will somehow make pigs stop killing our youth? Will another 50 years go by until it’s our grandkids dying outside of our doorsteps and all we can do is cry while the murdering pigs who killed them stand over their bodies “getting their stories straight”? Fuck that! 

“Let’s get down to basics: We need a revolution. Anything else, in the final analysis, is bullshit.” 

—Bob Avakian

Now that you have caught up with some of the highlights from the Tour, think again about the only choices that humanity faces: living with all the horrors concentrated in the five stops—or making revolution.

If you sense that none of the horrors of today will be solved by the dog-eat-dog capitalist-imperialist system and that something radical—a real revolution—is needed...even as you have a thousand questions as to what that revolution would look like and whether it is even possible.

Here are some important ways that everyone can begin to take up this challenge, but we encourage you to think about this and share with us your thoughts and ideas.

  1. Watch and show the film by Bob Avakian Why We Need An Actual Revolution And How We Can Really Make Revolution.  
  2. Make/pick up copies of the Call for the Tour & the Points of Attention for the Revolution and post them up in your neighborhood. Take a picture and post it and share with @tuneintorevcom and @nycrevclub.  
  3. Make a donation or become a monthly sustainer.  
  4. Join the Revolution Club out in the world: this Wednesday at St. Nick's Park (2pm-3:30pm) and this Saturday at First Saturday at Brooklyn Museum (5pm-8pm).  
  5. Come to Revolution Books on Wednesday (4p-8p) and Sunday (3p-7p) to dig more into the only two choices facing humanity, and how you can be part of something emancipating, watch and grapple with clips and quotes from Bob Avakian and discuss how we can make breakthroughs in organizing thousands of people right now into preparing for an actual revolution.  
  6. Bring your ideas, thoughts, mass fundraising plans and more to Revolution Club NYC & Revolution Books. Follow @tuneintorevcom and @nycrevclub and for regular updates: revcom.us.
