Attention Photographers

Capture the World for the Revolution

Revolution newspaper needs your photos. When people protest in the streets or when you go on assignment, send photos to Revolution (

The whole unjust order—this society—stands on stilts of many lies. Revolution newspaper is for bringing truth to those who are struggling to make a better world. We will print photos, news stories and analyses that other papers will ignore or bury.

Our newspaper is enabling an ever-expanding network of revolutionary fighters, dreamers and conscious thinkers to make a scientific assessment and analysis in society. This analysis is informed by the body of work, method and approach of our Chairman, the revolutionary communist leader Bob Avakian.

The subtlety, immediacy and insight of just one powerful photo can expre ss volumes. Let your photos move people to tears or help their spirit s soar, through the pages of our newspaper.

Many of the downpressed have trouble reading. Your photos will make revolutionary analysis accessible to more people.

If the people are to break through now when the stakes are so high, your photos can make a difference.
