Funds urgently needed to take BA Everywhere to the South by Southwest (SXSW) music conference and festival in March.  

SXSW (March 9 to March 18) is one of the largest and most well-known festivals in the world. It is attended by well over 100,000 people each year, and this year will feature the music of more than 2,000 bands and musical acts from 55 countries, together with films, panel discussions and more. In the wake of, and learning from, the experience and positive impact of the BAsics Bus Tour pilot project in California, a team is preparing to go to Austin, Texas to take out the BA Everywhere campaign to the SXSW crowd. To do this successfully means taking many, many copies of BAsics/Lo BAsico as well as lots of BAsics promotional materials. One special aim of the team is to promote and popularize "All Played Out," spoken word piece from the most radical revolutionary communist leader and thinker, Bob Avakian, with music from William Parker, one of the foremost free jazz musicians in the world today.

$5,000 is needed soon to print promotional materials. Meeting this $5,000 goal through fundraising of different kinds depends on you and others across the country who are on a mission to take the BA Everywhere campaign out in a big way. Without raising the necessary funds, the opportunity to reach literally thousands who need to know about BA and his work will be lost. Send contributions to RCP Publications, PO Box 3486 Merchandise Mart, Chicago, IL 60654, earmarked for BAsics promotion.
