The website is the home of Revolution, the newspaper that brings alive a scientific understanding of the world and how revolution is the solution to the horrors of today.  It is where people can meet and find the works of Bob Avakian – who has developed a new synthesis of communism –  a viable vision and strategy for a radically new, and much better, society and world, and the leadership to bring that into being. At people can find and connect with the Revolutionary Communist Party that BA leads and learn why without such a party there can be no revolution. And, is where people connect with  and learn how the movement for revolution is leading struggle on key fronts –  applying the strategic approach of fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution:  to stop mass incarceration; to end pornography, patriarchy and the war on women; to oppose imperialist wars; and to fight the devastation of the environment.  All of this is how the revolution today is hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
