Revolution and Religion

On viewing the film Revolution & Religion

"The film brings you up close inside Cornel West's and Bob Avakian's dialogue: the passion, the audacity, the science, the morality, the revolutionary substance. Two courageous voices modeling a morality that refuses to accept injustice – pouring heart and soul into standing together challenging all of us to fight for a world worthy of humanity."

—Andy Zee, co-director of the film

"They are both telling the truth. People from Skid Row need to hear this. I want to see the whole thing... In Skid Row you feel so trapped. People think of people there as drug addicts, but most people there are just down on their luck. There’s professionals there, intellectuals, women escaping abuse, people come from all over the country because they think California is better, but end up on Skid Row. They are coming for a better life, but get treated like animals. How can people get out of this madness? You are in a hole and you keep trying to get out, but the system keeps dragging you down. We need a way out!”

—A group of formerly homeless women who had lived on “Skid Row” in LA

"...People the system says are the worst of the worst can change and be part of this. If you don’t get that part you are missing a big part of what BA’s speech is about.

"When BA talked about how the world could be different in the “What If...” part of the speech, almost everybody in that section was in tears, including me. People were feeling it. "

—Former Prisoner Who Attended the Dialogue

Patrick Lynch is the loudmouth bigot head of the NYPD Patrolmen's Brutality Association. Lynch is a fitting mouthpiece for the police -- who function as the modern day equivalent of the lynch mobs that murdered and terrorized thousands of Black people in the Jim Crow era.

"I challenge Pat Lynch to a debate"

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.

Rise Up October to STOP Police Terror fundraising campaign continues

The campaign CONTINUES and so does the need for funds, focused on the fundraising campaign at indiegogo. Together we met the $100,000 goal, but there is a need for more funds.

Right NOW there is a $3,000 challenge match to raise the urgently needed funds, beyond the $100,000 already raised, for this national movement to STOP police terror. All donations up to $103,000 will be doubled.

If you have been involved in this struggle, or you are just learning about Rise Up October – from the widespread media coverage; from the attacks on Quentin Tarantino's participation in #RiseUpOctober by NY police union official, Patrick Lynch; and from Carl Dix speaking out on Fox News – taking on Fox's drumbeat that there is a "war on police" – donate now and challenge everyone you know to contribute as well!
