Continue to Sustain Revolution
Revolution #040, March 26, 2006, posted at revcom.us
In issue #33 - we announced a five week fund drive to bring forward 500 new sustainers, and $50,000 for Revolution. Last week, we announced that we had raised 40% of our goal, and were extending this fund drive another week to push over the top and make our goal. We're still counting (and collecting!) pledges so the final tally is not in. But if you committed to sustain, make sure we know about it. And while this concentrated sustainer drive is over, readers of Revolution can sign up as sustainers any time online, or by sending donations to:
Box 3486 Merchandise Mart
Chicago, IL 60654
Phone:RCP Publications Public Relations Office
voice: (773) 227-4066 fax: (773) 227-4497
Coupon books are available at Revolution Books stores (see list), and from Revolution newspaper distributors. Each week of our fund drive, we've printed inspiring and engaging letters from readers on why they are sustaining Revolution. This week, we're sharing a few more of these letters.
When I discovered the RW back in 1989 it quickly and dramatically changed the way I looked at the world. The analysis helped to sharpen up many thoughts that were floating around in my mind at the time, and the articles taught me so much about the world that we live in. As an artist/musician I found the RW's analysis of people like Miles Davis, Leonard Bernstein, Lester Bowie, Dizzy Gillespie and many others unique and invaluable. Simply put, in this world of intolerable oppression and increasing resistance, Revolution remains more vital and valuable than ever. I'm happy to contribute some of my hard earned money every month to help get this paper into many more hands, and I urge you to do the same.

I will sustain at $5.00 a month. I want to support Revolution because the paper and Bob Avakian's writings strip away the veil and show people what is needed to move past capitalism.. The ruling class thinks they have the world as their oyster. They don't realize it ain't over 'til the people win.

Enclosed is a money order for $120 to cover a commitment of ten dollars a month to the Revolution Sustainer Drive. ...Chairman Avakian calls on us to IMAGINE. I pause to imagine what things would be like without the Party and without Revolution and it is not a pleasant contemplation, dear friends. We need to support this newspaper that supports us. A newspaper that doesn't pull punches. Cuz we are in a fight to the finish! We're gonna go all the way. No half steppin', no side steppin'. Revolution is the hope of the hopeless and we stand for Revolution. I'm sixty years old and I know that this Party, this leader and this paper have kept me on track for as long as they've been around. Speaking for myself, I can't slow down, I've gotta catch a ride to the future. Join me, hop aboard, sustain this precious newspaper as we go forth to greet tomorrow.
