Taking Revolution to High School

Students in Harlem engage with the special middle school/high school issue of Revolution, and the Message and Call from the RCP, “The Revolution We Need... The Leadership We Have.”
Revolution correspondent Larry Everest recently spoke in three high school classes. He exposed the truth about the U.S. war in the Middle East and military recruitment. And he spoke about communism, Bob Avakian, and the need for revolution. Each student received a copy of the special middle/high school issue of Revolution newspaper (#176), and Everest walked through the pages of the paper with the students.
    About half of each class was reserved for Q&A, with students asking questions like “Who is Bob Avakian?”, “Are you religious?”, “What do revolutionaries do?”, “We’re exposed to a lot of different opinions from a lot of different places. How do we know what’s true?” A teacher in one class asked Everest to come back, saying that not only
were the students interested, but that he himself had felt a re-awakening of the spirit he had felt in the 1960s.
