Frequently Asked Questions

about the June 12 march to Show The World:
We Are Getting Organized Now For Revolution, Nothing Less! 



What is this march all about?

We will be showing people there is a way to a world and a future that is worth living for: REVOLUTION—Nothing Less! There is a plan for revolution, there’s leadership for that in Bob Avakian, and reason to have hope on a solid scientific basis.WE (including YOU) show there’s a force that is growing and organizing, fighting for a whole different world and living for that future NOW! And that in turn will make people turn their heads, give them hope, and attract more people to this.

We’re starting at LA Southwest College. We’ll be marching through the neighborhood, some of us in disciplined formation and t-shirts, and others joining in. All who want to see this movement grow are welcome to join in any way they can. The march will then go to the sheriff’s station.

Why is it so important to march now? 

In a country like this, with very powerful oppressors, it is not always possible to make an all-out revolution. We live in a rare time and circumstances when we could actually make revolution—depending on what we do and build right now! We can’t waste this chance!

Who will be there?

The Revcoms will be there along with people newly getting organized for revolution. There will also be people with questions or differences with revolution, who want to be there with those who are struggling over what kind of fundamental change is needed.

Should I come?

If you can’t stand the way the world is... if you are sick and tired of so many people being treated as less than human... if you have a heart to fight for something really worth fighting for, then YOU should be there! Even if you still want to learn more about this revolution and the people in it, come June 12th!

If you cannot walk the entire march, have disability, are older, or have children, some people are bringing their vehicles so people who come but cannot march can ride together and participate in the end program.

Who are the Revcoms? 

We are Revolutionary Communists. What’s that? In short, we understand the need for a real revolution to emancipate humanity. Ask people in the “Revolution—Nothing Less!” shirts, or go online to, to see the 6 Points of Attention for the Revolution that we live by, and A Declaration, A Call To Get Organized Now For A Real Revolution. In that declaration, we say:

With the revolution it’s not “everyone out for themselves and against everybody else”—it’s all of us together who can’t stand to live like this and hunger for something much better, something truly emancipating.

Who leads the Revcoms?

The declaration also says more about who is Bob Avakian. Here are some important things from that:

Bob Avakian (BA) came forward as a revolutionary and developed into a communist leader through the mass revolutionary upsurge of the 1960s. He is an old white guy—yes, deal with it! Unlike so many who considered themselves revolutionaries at that time, BA has never given up, never departed from the road of revolution. He has continued to advance on this road and to confront the problems and difficulties in making revolution… There never has been a leader like this in this country and there is no other leader like this in the world now, and we cannot afford not to follow this leadership if we ever want to get free and put an end to this madness.

Why is the march going to the Sheriff’s Station?

The LA Sheriffs are infested with white supremacist gangs, they murdered Dijon Kizzee, Andrés Guardado, and 300+ people over the last 21 years… they inflict daily terror on Black and Brown people. Most importantly: the violence of the sheriffs, the police across this country, and the U.S. military around the world all enforce a system of capitalism-imperialism, of oppression and madness. They are a perfect symbol of everything that needs to be swept away.

Is the march legal?

This march is legal. The LA Sheriff’s Department (LASD) tried to deny us a permit to march, but after many voices came together to protest this, the LASD had to back off and grant the permit. We will have legal observers to insist they obey the permit we fought for, knowing the sheriffs have attacked peaceful protests before.

Will there be violence?

We are training people to be disciplined and determined, not to get provoked or backed down from the goal of emancipating all of humanity. As number 6 of our Points of Attention for the Revolution says: “We are going for an actual overthrow of this system and a whole better way beyond the destructive, vicious conflicts of today between the people. Because we are serious, at this stage we do not initiate violence and we oppose all violence against the people and among the people.”

We will organize people to do security against any attempts to attack the march and work to diffuse negative situations.

What happens after the march? What does it mean to organize now for revolution?

You become part of something bigger than yourself, people with the desire and heart to fight to end all oppression working together for revolution. This is explained much more in the Declaration from the Revcoms. Put simply, some of what it says is:

Organizing people into this revolution means reaching out to all sorts of people—not just where there are protests and rebellions against oppression and injustice, but everywhere throughout society—spreading the word about revolution and getting people together (in real life and online) to grapple with why an actual revolution is necessary, what such a revolution involves, and what kind of society this is aiming for.


We need to struggle hard with people to take up the orientation and strategy, the values and goals, for this revolution, and dedicate themselves to working for this revolution, while we unite growing numbers to fight the abuse, brutality and destruction perpetrated by this system, and through all this get thousands and then millions of people prepared and steeled to do away with this system that brings so much hell to people. We need to wield this growing revolutionary force to stand up to this system and its murderous enforcers and to change the whole “terrain” (the political, social and cultural situation and “atmosphere”) throughout society, in order to weaken the hold of this system over people, win people away from acting to strengthen and enforce this system, and create the best possible conditions for this revolution to succeed.
