Berlin, October 22, 2022   

On October 22, tens of thousands of people around the world—from Berlin to London to Sydney to Washington, DC, and many other places—took to the streets in a “March for Iran.” Here in the U.S., aside from the national capital, marches took place in cities across the country, from New York to Atlanta to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Coming from many different perspectives, people protested against the reactionary Islamic Republic of Iran and in support of the courageous uprising of the masses in Iran, especially the women. On this page are sights and sounds from just a few of the protests that day.

Donate NOW to help put revolution on the map!

As the world burns, do you hunger for a future fit for human beings and the diversity of life on the planet?

Threats of nuclear Armageddon… racist murdering cops, abortion-banning theocrats, anti-LGBTQ terror… All this will only get worse unless and until we make a revolution to get rid of the system of capitalism-imperialism enforcing and furthering this nightmare.

To build this revolution... to make this revolution known... to raise people’s sights requires your financial support.

In this rare time when the rulers of this country are deeply divided and cannot “hold the country together”—the revolution we are working for is urgently necessary, and more possible.

Right now, we are working urgently to put this revolution on the map. This requires funds on a major scale.


Your donations contribute to:

  • Printing and distribution of the Declaration and Proclamation—a message on the walls that we don’t have to live this way
  • Promotion of the Bob Avakian Interviews on The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show (voice of the revcoms) through advertising and major showings
  • Production of the website, where you get unique analysis of major events and trends, learn about the revolution and how to be part of it, and find the major works of the revolutionary leader Bob Avakian
  • Support the revolutionary leaders and committed young revolutionaries putting revolution on the map, who are anchored in Los Angeles
