Saskia Sassen: "A more radical way of looking at where we're at…that draws me"

What I like really about this dialogue is that it is not the typical dialogue. It is not the typical people. And it is not this very domesticated, careful mode of talking about where we're at and what we need. I think what both Cornel West and Bob Avakian are about is opening up new ground. We're in a disastrous situation…

Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology, co-chair Committee on Global Thought, Columbia University. HostCommittee for the Cornel West/Bob Avakian Dialogue

A special request at the suggestion of  Rev. Cecil Murray: We are asking you to provide scholarships and hold second collections to raise travel funds for those who have no means to attend an extraordinary event in New York City on November 15.   We are talking about providing planefare to those in our communities for whom this fight for emancipation holds a special meaning, those whose lives have counted for nothing but whose lives can count for everything in a struggle to end all of this oppression and madness.

Revolutionary Emancipation and Religion

by Ron Jacobs

"...Both men have spent their adult lives working for the emancipation of oppressed peoples. Both have been maligned and ridiculed….
