You Want to Change the World?
Sustain Revolution Newspaper!

From a reader:

I read the call for sustainers in the last issue and want to share some thoughts on why people should sustain Revolution, and struggle with others to do so.

This is a world of horrors. Mass incarceration in U.S. prisons is part of a slow genocide that could become a fast genocide. Abortion, and even birth control, are under fierce attack with the aim of enslaving women as forced child-bearers. Moves towards an attack on Iran by the U.S. and Israel hang over the heads of the people of the region and beyond. The danger to the environment is ominous and unchecked...

Revolution is the ONLY newspaper that cuts to the bone to tell you WHY things are happening... to show you HOW it doesn’t have to be this way... and to give you the ways to ACT to change it. In ways no other media does, this paper challenges people who are awakening to find ways to break through the intimidating repression that keeps people down, and leads people to take that on. It calls on people to get out of the framework of just tinkering around the edges of this system, or looking for an alternative space within it, and to begin taking responsibility for the biggest questions of the revolution.

Revolution is a key way that people can keep up with new works from Bob Avakian and connect with his leadership.

Revolution is where people can find out what’s going on with the BA Everywhere campaign, which is "challenging the conventional wisdom that this capitalist system is the best humanity can do—and bringing to life the reality that with the new synthesis of communism brought forward by BA, there is a viable vision and strategy for a radically new, and much better, society and world, and there is the leadership that is needed for the struggle toward that goal."

As the RCP’s Statement, "On the Strategy for Revolution" (Revolution #226, March 6, 2011) says—this paper "is the key instrument in developing an organized political network, among the most oppressed and other sections of the people, which can have a growing impact on the political scene and the society (and the world) as a whole, building up the forces of revolution and influencing ever broader numbers of people....It provides a foundation and a means for extending the 'reach' of the revolutionary movement and building up bases for this movement..."
