BECAUSE…

Updated

Because We Rage…

Because they took away your right to abortion and force your sisters across the country to have children against their will…and because they are coming for birth control next.

Protest at Supreme Court against overturning of Roe v. Wade.   

Because your young sisters still cut themselves, still think about suicide, still get bullied in the halls and shamed on social media and, yes, raped when they dare to trust…

Because if you are trans and young you are hounded by bullies and by those in power in Texas and Florida and America… and you are still stigmatized for being lesbian or gay in 2023…

Because you can’t even put the word WOMAN in a sentence anymore with the word OPPRESSION without some fool raising an objection, while the horror hits worse, every single day…

Because our brothers and sons and dads and uncles and tios—and our daughters and sisters and moms and aunties too—become statistics and hashtags for saying the “wrong” thing, for making a “wrong” move, for having the “wrong” skin in a country that’s really been wrong from the start…

Because your chances of dying when you give birth in America are over three times greater if you are Black than if you are white…

Because of evictions… because of raising children in shelters…

Because of fascist maggots with their incitements to violence against women go “viral,” one worse than the next…

Because of pornography being the default sex education for nine-year-olds…

Because religious fanatics—be they Christian, Islamic, Hindu or Jewish—pronounce you “unclean” and want to dominate and control you even more

Because women and children in Jakarta and Lagos and Mexico City and Atlanta and Kentucky and South Dakota get trafficked and vanish without a trace…

Because you’re told to “brand” yourself—think about that word—and to sell yourself with no greater ambition than to someday yourself be “a player too”…

Because the blood and sweat and 12-hour days of billions of sisters in Asia and around the world is ground into your clothes and your phones…

Because this system commodifies everything and everyone… and is killing us all!

Because our world could get blown up or dried up or burnt up by the powers-that-be for the system they run and we haven’t even had a chance.

Because We Struggle…

Because your sisters in Iran rose up against religious tyrants, cast off their head scarves, and sacrificed even their lives so their sisters could breathe free… and because men joined them, across the country, and even giving their lives in the cause of justice…

Women in Iran dance and burn their hijabs.   

Because your sisters in Mexico rose up against the killings and disappearances of thousands of women a year for the “crime” of walking this planet with a vagina…

Because your sisters in Argentina and Colombia rose up, in green, proudly DEMANDING the right to abortion…

Because young people in America took the streets last spring when the word leaked out on what the fascist Supreme Court was about to do (and then did)…

Because we dare to think, to cry and ask why and defy those who say we are lesser, to resist and struggle, to speak out and shout out NO to the madness, to say yes, to reason, to laugh and to dream of and work for and fight for a world that we will set FREE…

Because We Hope and Dream and Think for Full Liberation…

Because bad as it is with worse yet to come, this system is coming apart and out of that stench we can wrench something much better…

Because we have a plan, and a vision for a whole better way, a REAL revolution with a NEW Constitution to uproot the wrongs and put things right…

Because there’s a way to understand how we got into this situation and how to get out—a new communism with the scientific method we can all learn to wield…

Because there’s a strategy that we can use to get free against heavy odds…

Because there’s the leadership we need to wage that great fight.

Because as the revolutionary leader and thinker Bob Avakian says,

“There is not going to be any liberating struggle, any liberating real revolution, that doesn't have right at the heart of it, at the core of it, the emancipation of women from every way in which they are degraded, and debased, and oppressed, and violently suppressed.”

Help Make 2024 Our Year—a Year of Revolution! 
Donate to Revcom.us

From the genocide in Gaza, to the growing threat of world war between nuclear powers, to escalating environmental devastation… the capitalist-imperialist system ruling over us is a horror for billions around the world and is tearing up the fabric of life on earth. Now the all-out battle within the U.S. ruling class, between fascist Republicans and war criminal Democrats, is coming to a head—likely during, or before, the coming elections—ripping society apart unlike anything since the Civil War. 

Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has developed a strategy to prepare for and make revolution. He’s scientifically analyzed that this is a rare time when an actual revolution has become more possible, and has laid out the sweeping vision, solid foundation and concrete blueprint for “what comes next,” in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America

The website revcom.us follows and applies that leadership and is essential to all this. We post new materials from BA and curate his whole body of work. We apply the science he’s developed to analyze and expose every key event in society, every week. Revcom.us posts BA’s timely leadership for the revcoms (revolutionary communists), including his social media posts which break this down for people every week and sometimes more. We act as a guiding and connecting hub for the growing revcom movement nationwide: not just showing what’s being done, but going into what’s right and what’s wrong and rapidly learning—and recruiting new people into what has to be a rapidly growing force.

Put it this way: there will be no revolution unless this website not only “keeps going” but goes up to a whole different level!

So what should you give to make 2024 our year—a year of revolution? 
Everything you possibly can!
