In A  Rare Time When Revolution Could Become Possible…

DONATE to—and Be Part of—the Revcom.us Fall/Winter $30K Fund Drive

 

Read what our donors and sustainers are saying

Why should you—and many, many others—donate to and be part of this effort? This is a rare time when an actual revolution to overthrow this monstrous system—which threatens the very future of humanity and the planet—and bring into being a radically new society as envisioned in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America authored by Bob Avakian (BA) could become possible.

In this rare time, we must expand our reach to the tens of thousands who do not yet know—and must know about—this revolution and the leadership we have in Bob Avakian, and contributing to revcom.us’ fall/winter fund drive to raise an urgently needed $30,000 is a crucial way to be part of this movement for revolution.

As one recent donor wrote: "If we have gotten 2/3rds of the way to making the goal of $30,000, then we should aim for making the entire goal by the end of January. With the new talk from BA in hand, there is no reason to fall short."

As BA writes, in order to seize on this opportunity:

People need to raise their heads and broaden their sights, look beyond what is immediately around them, break with illusions and phony “solutions,” and take up the scientific method of the new communism to get a basic understanding, and keep on deepening the understanding, of what is actually going on, what are the very heavy stakes in all this, and what are not only the very negative but also the very positive possibilities for radical change that exist within all this.

Revcom.us plays a crucial role in all this!

There is no site like revcom.us in the world today… where people in this country and internationally can get introduced to and connect with the leadership we have in BA… where people can get a lively scientific analysis of major developments in society and the world, how they relate to the system we live under, what the interests of humanity are, how revolution is the only solution, and how people can and are moving to build toward that revolution. Our bilingual site reaches thousands of Spanish-speaking people the world over.

We‘ve now made technological changes to the site, enabling us to respond more quickly to events, involve new forces in working on the site itself, and most importantly (as the site expands), help revcom.us play a much more dynamic role in organizing forces for revolution.

Big funds—$30,000 in this fund drive—are needed to enable revcom.us to become even more powerful. This is where you come in.

Financially supporting the revolution is a very concrete and important way to be part of this revolution. 

Here are specific ways you can be part of this crucial effort:

  • Donate to this drive— as much as you can.
  • One-time donations are important. At the same time, it is crucial that revcom.us have an expanding base of sustainers, people who give on a regular basis. If you’re not a sustainer yet, we urge you to become one.
  • Reach out to your friends, family, people you know at work, and others to tell them why you’re donating to revcom.us and urging them to do the same. Send them this email, or adapt it for your own message. Call up people or talk to them face to face. If you prefer, introduce us to people you know, and our phone-banking team can call them up to get more into revcom.us and the fund drive. Let us know how this goes—people won over to donating, questions that come up that you need help in responding to, etc.
  • Send us a statement about why you’re donating and why you think other people should also donate. Such statements can have a significant impact in moving others to give—and are an important part of spreading the revolution. Email: revolution.reports@yahoo.com
  • Send us your ideas and suggestions about this fund drive and the website. We appreciate—and take seriously—comments, observations, and critiques we receive from our readers. Email: revolution.reports@yahoo.com

Look for regular updates—on the revcom.us site and via emails—on how the fund drive is going.

From fundraisers in Houston:

$203 was raised over the last couple of weeks or so... overwhelmingly from people in cars stopped at red lights. We got out palm cards of BA's new work, and some, though not all, donated to revcom. We went out to rush hour traffic, outside a flea market, and to busy intersections in primarily Black and Latino neighborhoods. People who donated were quite diverse in terms of gender, age, and nationality—Black people, Spanish-speaking immigrants, other foreign-born, and a few white people. We also raised a little money at the MLK Day parade and at small businesses who took palm cards to leave on their counters for their customers.

From a $500 donor:

If we have gotten 2/3rds of the way to making the goal of $30,000, then we should aim for making the entire goal by the end of January. With the new talk from BA in hand, there is no reason to fall short. Here's $500.00 towards finishing with a 💥.

$20 from creative fund raising

$20 donated by an older Black man in Akron Ohio who has just been following BA for many years, on and off. Since getting the Declaration he has begun to get more serious about revolution. He is intently watching a number of BA's DVD speeches and wants to learn more about the revolution. He is trying to organize other people in his area. He also has a revolutionary change jar and is going to sell some of the revolutionary key chains— a project by a newer revcom.

Supporter "regifts" $50

$50 came from someone who has been around the revolution for a long time. He donated the money he received as a Xmas gift from his work.

From a $1,000 donor

BA’s voice now echoes around the world as we see the glimmer of a new and growing International Revolutionary Communist Movement.  The Revcoms are broadcasting the analysis and tools we need to see through the capitalist/imperialist ruling class curtain of lies, disinformation, puppets, misdirectors, enforcers, etc.  We have BA’s New Synthesis of Communism and therein the direction and BA’s leadership that gives us the potential to not only turn the world right side up but to keep it there.  A whole new world is possible IF WE take up the challenge.  Give like there is no tomorrow because without Revolution, there may be no tomorrow.

From a 90-year-old supporter who donated $50

I have followed Bob Avakian for a long time, and heard him speak at the Mao Memorial more than 40 years ago. Lately, I am not able to be as active. Sometimes I go to things in a wheelchair—I can’t march but I can hold a sign. I try to give a little to a lot of things, like Revolution Books, and the Revolution Club, but revcom.us is the heart... the trunk... from which the others things spring.  So I want to donate $50 to revcom.us.  I am learning how to do things on the internet, so I will go online right now. [and she did!]
 
I feel the world situation is making people more open to political ideas than they were five or seven years ago. During coffee hour every morning in my building of seniors, talk is not always political, but I am learning how to draw people out around political ideas. And I draw on the ideas at revcom.us.

From a supporter donating the second time:
"… I'm very excited about 12/13/21 and I will let people that I know, know about it. I think that the danger of fascism further consolidating is at a four-alarm fire level, and too many people are either willfully blinding themselves to that danger, and that the Democrats WILL NOT and CANNOT rise to the occasion to react to it. It will be up to us to mobilize people about this danger. (Sort of like, 'Danger, Danger, Will Robinson')"

From reader who donated $100:
"I donated because we are at a pivotal time in the United States, and the World, where change is going to happen. BA has brilliantly laid out the framework by which humanity can escape the oppression of capitalism. My intent is that the small donation I can provide will help to move towards ending oppression."

From someone who donated $200:
"I've been reading a lot recently about the history of anti-colonial struggles of the 1950s-1970s. And the flip side of that is the murderous tactics of the former colonial powers, and the new U.S. empire, to subvert the will of the world's people to be free of colonial domination and rule themselves.  That so many people could be killed so blithely at the instigation of the so-called bastions of civilization and democracy is revolting enough. And now it appears that some of these same tactics could be unleashed by fascists inside the US. The chickens are coming home to roost. The whole world deserves better."

"Excited by the prospect of taking this fund drive and revcom.us out to others..."

Nov, 17, 2021

Dear revcom.us,

As a long time reader of Revolution, I have just made my first contribution to the $30,000 fall/winter fund drive. It will not be my last but what I am really excited by is the prospect of taking this fund drive and revcom.us out to others. I have already started by reaching out with an email that starts out:

To put it simply and bluntly, there is simply no way to fully understand what is going on in the world today, including the possibilities to wrench a better future for humanity and the planet out of the unfolding horrors of the world around us without revcom.us, starting with the singular platform it provides for the pathbreaking work of Bob Avakian (BA), the architect of The New Communism and who, without hype, is the most important political leader in the world today.

I go on to provide links to some of BA's most recent pieces along with a couple of other recent articles and the Donate page. I got an immediate response from a couple of academics who both said they were making contributions. Neither of whom read revcom.us as thoroughly as I would like, but one included an invitation to get together to talk more. The more I have thought about this, the more people come to mind that I can reach out to – activists, academics, family members. There is a long list and I am looking forward to reaching out to all of them – including seeing if some will become regular sustainers. I hope to learn a lot in the process.

While I have always loved Revolution and looked to it for leadership, I feel like the website has made a real leap in the last several months, both in terms of content and format. I think "What You Need to Know and Engage This Week About the World and Revolution" is one of the great new developments at the website. There is so much going on in the world and so much content at the website, it is very helpful to be able to start off by reading this commentary. It makes the site more accessible and helps me focus on key articles and themes. I "anticipate" it and it is the first thing I go to each week.

Best,

A reader

From someone who donated $100:
"This is for Revcom.us to help the Revcoms build a movement for revolution. I'm outraged, but not surprised by the outcome of the trial of the Hitler Youth Rittenhouse. This is a critical moment and people need revolution instead of fascism."

From a retiree who is confronting some serious health issues:
"Thanks for reaching out. I do watch the RNL show...and that was actually a motivating factor in deciding to contribute at this time. I was also inspired to see the revcoms stepping out in front of the courthouse in Kenosha on the national news."
