Let’s get down to basics: We need a revolution—nothing less!
To everyone who can’t stand this world the way it is … who is sick and tired of so many people being treated as less than human … everyone who agonizes about where things are headed and the fact that to be young now means being denied a decent future, or any future at all ... everyone who has ever dreamed about something much better, or even wondered whether that is possible…
From A Declaration, A Call to Get Organized Now For a Real Revolution
If this describes you, we urge you to dig as deeply as you can to contribute to and support the work of the National Revolution Tour at this crucial moment.
This is the world we confront today: White supremacists given the legal right to murder people marching for Black lives. Mobs of crazed anti-science fascists terrorizing public health officials and school board meetings with backing, and funding, by a fascist wing of the ruling class, itself on the march. The right to abortion hanging by a thread forcing millions of women into motherhood against their will. Millions of immigrants from El Salvador to Syria... Afghanistan to Haiti... driven from countries that have become unlivable... then herded into brutal border camps or sent back to the hell from which they escaped. Fires ravaging California, Brazil, Greece... rising waters threatening millions in Bangladesh... droughts in Sudan... while the system’s rulers speed humanity off a cliff with empty promises and more greenhouse gas emissions.
It is not exaggeration to say: The future of humanity hangs in the balance.
In this situation, whether this revolution is spread and supported—whether this revolution is able to impact all of society—can make all the difference.
The capitalist-imperialist system at the root of this nightmare is in crisis, with deep divisions throughout society. Those who rule are locked in a bitter fight among themselves. As A Declaration, A Call to Get Organized Now For a Real Revolution says, “...the crisis and deep divisions in society now can only be resolved through radical means, of one kind or another—either radically reactionary, murderously oppressive and destructive means or radically emancipating revolutionary means.”
Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has made the analysis that we are in a rare time in a country like this when revolution—real revolution—becomes possible. He is providing urgently needed leadership for this revolution. This is concentrated in a major new work from BA to be released December 13:
SOMETHING TERRIBLE, OR SOMETHING TRULY EMANCIPATING:
Profound Crisis, Deepening Divisions, The Looming Possibility Of Civil War—And The Revolution That Is Urgently Needed
A Necessary Foundation, A Basic Roadmap For This Revolution
by Bob Avakian, Revolutionary Leader, Author of the New Communism
Because of the work that BA has done, there is a sweeping vision and concrete blueprint for a liberating society based on a whole different morality where the means of getting there are consistent with those liberatory ends, in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America.
And because of the work that BA has done, there is a scientific understanding that the world doesn’t have to be this way, that a revolution to overthrow this system and bring into being a whole different emancipating society is possible. More than that—he has forged the strategic approach for making this revolution.
On the basis of this understanding and leadership, the National Revolution Tour is working urgently to seize on this rare time—to spread this revolution and organize people into this revolution.
By donating to the National Tour to Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution you have the opportunity to change what direction the future takes.
The mission of the National Revolution Tour is to bring forward a revolutionary people first in the thousands and then in the millions... impacting and influencing all of society... and making Bob Avakian's work, vision and leadership increasingly known and debated. Volunteers on the National Revolution Tour are on a mission to lead people to confront the dangers, not shying away from the need for struggle and sacrifice... challenging people to raise their heads, lift their sights, and get organized for this revolution. The National Revolution Tour is working to change the entire political and social atmosphere—up against all the passivity and hopelessness, the going for self and settling for meaningless marginal change—where the scientific and generous-minded forces for revolution are growing and contending, giving people backbone and determination to take on the rising fascist forces and join with the revolution to get rid of the whole system of exploitation and oppression. The National Revolution Tour is organizing NOW for revolution—nothing less!
To carry out this mission, to build, spread and have major impact reaching into every corner of society—the National Revolution Tour needs your financial support. Donate generously and help raise funds.
** Funds are needed to support the Tour volunteers who come from different backgrounds, ages and parts of the country—now anchored in Los Angeles and leading a national movement. Funds are needed for housing, food, transportation, major printing costs to reach people in every section of society—reaching to the high schools, colleges, youth scenes and throughout the neighborhoods of LA.
** Funds are needed to produce and promote The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show where we bring alive the need and possibility of real revolution and the emancipation of humanity through commentaries, interviews, powerful illustrated videos and discussions that provoke, challenge and inspire. This requires funding for studio costs, cameras, lights, editing software and the urgently needed national promotion for this unique, urgent and necessary show to reach people all across the country.
** Funds are needed to contend on social media—fighting the algorithm to break through and influence people with the truth, not repeating garbage that may be “popular” or spreading the lies we are constantly told by the people in power and their mouthpieces in the media and elsewhere. This requires funding for higher-end equipment and professional graphics programs.

What can you do?
** Thanksgiving dinner, invite your family and friends to watch the special episode of the The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show and ask for financial support (you can sustain this show at any level from $3 per month to $100 or more at patreon.com/therevcoms).
** Organize group watchings of the National Fundraising Livestream, Sunday, December 12 to hear from volunteers on the ground with the National Revolution Tour—this will be inspiring and challenging—giving a glimpse of how a force for revolution can change the whole political and social atmosphere.
** If you're going to a family gathering, bring a “revolutionary change jar”—where people can drop in change and more—all giving what they can, and be part of something bigger than themselves. This might open up debate and discussion—use revcom.us and The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show as a resource.
** Set up a table at holiday festivals and farmers' markets with a call for contributions.
** If you can do it Covid-safe, invite people over for a holiday party and gathering to raise funds for the National Revolution Tour. You can either do the fund pitch yourself, or invite a member of the National Revolution Tour to come via Zoom, talk about what we're doing and why it needs financial support.
** Reach out to artists and others who can make in-kind contributions that could be given as a premium on the Livestream.
** Members of the National Revolution Tour are also available via Zoom for potential donors with the resources to make higher-end contributions. Contact us at email@example.com if you want to set this up.
