REVCOM.US—August 19, 2021


For everyone visiting our site, read this important new Declaration and Call from the Revcoms:







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 ...who knows that the claim of “liberty and justice for all” is a cruel lie ... who is righteously enraged that injustice and inequality go on, and on, and on, despite false promises and honeyed words from people in power (or those seeking power) ... 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 ... everyone who hungers for a world without oppression, exploitation, poverty, and destruction of the environment ... everyone who has the heart to fight for something that is really worth fighting for: You need to be part of this revolution.


This revolution is not just “a good idea”— it is actually possible.

From Bob Avakian—Revolutionary Leader, Author of the New Communism:


Many people have seen the very important statement from the revcoms, A Declaration, A Call To Get Organized Now For A Real Revolution, which is available at, and is being posted and passed out to people in neighborhoods and other places around the country, as a key part of spreading the word about this revolution and organizing people into this revolution. Many more people need to get, and get deeply into, this “Declaration and Call.” Here, I am going to speak to some big questions related to this...

BAsics 3:1

Let’s get down to basics: We need a revolution. Anything else, in the final analysis, is bullshit.


Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t unite with people in all sorts of struggles short of revolution. We definitely need to do that. But the proffering of any other solution to these monumental and monstrous problems and outrages is ridiculous, frankly. And we need to be taking the offensive and mobilizing increasing numbers of masses to cut through this shit and bring to the fore what really is the solution to this, and to answer the questions and, yes, the accusations that come forth in response to this, while deepening our scientific basis for being able to do this. And the point is: not only do we need to be doing this, but we need to be bringing forward, unleashing and leading, and enabling increasing numbers of the masses to do this. They need to be inspired, not just with a general idea of revolution, but with a deepening understanding, a scientific grounding, as to why and how revolution really is the answer to all of this.


Why BAsics 3:1 Has Been Changed

Bob Avakian (BA) has changed the quote that opens the third chapter of BAsics (on making revolution). The quote reads the same but the last point has been boldfaced.... Read more



1) This system of capitalism-imperialism is the source of endless horrors for the majority of people in this country and all around the world, and it is increasingly threatening the very existence of humanity. We are actively working for an actual revolution—to bring down, to overthrow and completely abolish, this whole system as soon as possible and replace it with something radically different and much better, a new society built on an entirely different foundation...

2) We are followers of Bob Avakian. And you need to become followers of BA too. He is an old white guy—yes, deal with it! He is providing ongoing leadership for this revolution, and he has a whole body of work... READ ON

...there does have to be another explanation about the world and existence and why this is the way it is, and how it could be different. READ ON

Fight the Power, and Transform the People, for Revolution

“...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

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.

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.”

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.
