From the Publisher:

...This book is a masterwork and a master class—it is a living laboratory  of the new synthesis of communism developed by Bob Avakian. It is also  striking in its ability to combine high level revolutionary communist theory  and modeling of revolutionary leadership with a visceral, colloquial and  passionate style that will resonate with and be accessible  to a wide  variety of readers. 

This thought-provoking book is sure to challenge stereotypes and  conventional thinking.

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.

Noche Diaz and Revolution Club Defy Ban at University of Chicago

Updated with new videos November 3, 2016

From Cornel West: "I stand with my brother Noche Diaz and my comrades in Chicago who were arrested and beaten by the Chicago police! They have a right to bear witness for justice and deserve humane treatment!"

From Edward Asner:

Dear President Zimmer,

Are the University of Chicago police now acting as representatives of the city of Chicago?  Freedom of speech, a basis of the United States and customarily universities, broadens that principle even more.  As a former University of Chicago student, I protest the mauling of Noche Diaz and the young girl who was punched.

What's wrong with the University of Chicago President Zimmer?  Has it been Trumpized?  To habitually roust Noche Diaz and others is a crime as you are betraying the ideals of what a university should be.  Drop the charges against Noche Diaz.  Don't cheapen or betray the University of Chicago image!

From Rev. Peter Goodwin Heltzel, Ph.D.: "I stand with my friend and fellow New Yorker Noche Diaz who was arrested and beaten by Chicago police! He has a right to free speech and should be treated with respect. Together we can work for an equitable, safe and sustainable world."

From Chuck D: @MrChuckD: @Noche_RC bringing more logic than your candidates

From a Professor Emeritus at the University of Colorado at Boulder: "Dear President Driscoll and President Zimmer: You surely know that free speech is essential to both critical thinking and political democracy. The arrest of Noche Diaz and members of the Revolution Club at your respective institutions are serious attacks upon free speech. All charges against these people should be dropped immediately."

From a Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) student: " a student and a human being that has the freedom of expression...I believe that we have the freedom to receive information from all sources and this is one of them. I encourage revolutionaries to keep visiting our CUNY campuses and have the freedom of expression."
