To get a real sense of what this meant – and what revolutionaries did about this – read this excerpt from Bob Avakian’s memoir, From Ike to Mao and Beyond—My Journey from Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist.

BA Speaks:
Bob Avakian Live

In the fall of 2012, Bob Avakian gave a series of talks in different cities. This is a film of one of those talks.

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.
