Recent Weeks In DC...And The Bloody Claw of U.S. History

There is a long history to the rampage by the fascist, white supremacist mob in DC, waving Confederate flags along with American and Trump flags. The cornerstone of Trump’s completely false claim about a “stolen election” is the supposed corruption and illegality of votes, especially in cities—like Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee—with large numbers of Black voters. White supremacy is woven into the history and very fabric of this country, as Bob Avakian has analyzed and emphasized and as can be seen in the American Crime series. These articles, some of which have appeared as part of the American Crime series, give a deeper sense of that history and present-day reality, and how white supremacy has been continually woven—and re-woven—into the knots of this society.

Read the entire work:

From the Preamble to the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (emphasis added):

In contrast to the way in which the capitalist-imperialist state serves and enforces the interests of a small ruling group of exploiters, the New Socialist Republic in North America, with the continuing leadership of the Revolutionary Communist Party, bases itself on, and proceeds from, the fundamental interests of those most bitterly exploited and oppressed under the old system, and the masses of people broadly, and provides the means for them to play an increasingly widening role in the exercise of political power and the functioning of society in accordance with those interests—in order to carry forward the struggle to transform society, with the goal of uprooting and finally eliminating all oppressive and exploitative relations among human beings and the destructive antagonistic conflicts to which these relations give rise....

Read the whole Preamble, including the first paragraph which sets the context, here.

“...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

A model of the Coronavirus COVID-19

We need an actual revolution—we need to overthrow this oppressive system and bring a radically different and much better system into being—and we are building a movement for this revolution now: working to bring forward and organize thousands of people, now, who are taking up and getting trained in the strategy and theory of the revolution brought forward by Bob Avakian (BA), and are moving together to apply this now to “hasten”—to influence and develop things toward—this revolution, so that we can lead millions to make this revolution at the earliest possible time, as soon as the necessary conditions for that have been brought into being.

This system cannot be REFORMED —
It must be OVERTHROWN!

To know and change the world,
get into Bob Avakian and the new communism

“Bob Avakian ... on the basis of decades of hard work [has been] developing a whole body of work—theory to advance the science of communism, to advance the science of revolution, to more deeply explain where the problems come from, what the strategy is for getting out of this mess, what the methods and approaches should be to stay on track and actually build a better world, to build a society that most human beings would want to live in.”
- Ardea Skybreak

View Bob Avakian speaking in 1969, 1979, and 2003


These 5 STOPS present TWO CHOICES to the people: Either live with this and the oppression will go on and on, or, as BA says, make revolution! (From the speech, Why We Need An Actual Revolution And How We Can Really Make Revolution.) And, if you want to be a part of making revolution, you need to spread the word of the revolution and GET ORGANIZED—and the 6 POINTS OF ATTENTION provide the principles by which you can do that.

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
