My Name is Somayeh Kargar, follower of the New Synthesis of Communism, an ex political prisoner in Iran.

The world we live in is no longer tolerable. From the killing of courageous women fighters in Iran or Afghanistan by the theocratic fundamentalist governments or the genocide of Palestinian people, Ukrainian people, by the imperialist states or their lackeys and supporters, or the pains and suffering of the children in Africa, the destruction of the environment, or any other oppressions and exploitations in the world, none of these horrors are necessary, but their continued existence calls for the revolution that we need. We need to transform this situation.

If you want to know what is the capitalist-imperialist system and how it functions and what are the root causes of all these horrors in the world—If you want to know how to make a movement for the revolution we need and how to go forward towards building a New Socialist Republic—let’s participate in these important and special screenings of selections from the Bob Avakian Interviews. It makes no difference what part of the world we live in. This system has bound up all of our lives tightly together, and for liberation and emancipation, we must all fight for each other and to be conscious of our international responsibilities. Let’s by our serious presence and participation meet the challenges and bring our questions.

We have a chance to live in a time that a leader like Bob Avakian has put forward the highest level of the understanding of the science of communism, the New Synthesis of Communism, and gives us the possibility by basing ourselves on that science with the real hope of gaining victories. Avakian says to lead a revolution you need science and art.

If borders would have allowed me, I would have participated with joy, to learn and apply this science as much as I can.

DONATE to the revolution.

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 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. 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!
