“The spirit of resistance and commitment to revolution are always so inspiring in Brother Avakian!”
Cornel West
What people are saying about this film...

 
"Whether you agree with everything Bob Avakian professes or not, the power of his words will shake you into a profound reexamination of your core beliefs."
Jean Krasno, Lecturer in the Department of Political Science;
Director, Multilateralism and International Organization Initiative at the
Colin Powell Center for Policy Studies at City College of New York;
Distinguished Fellow at the Center for International Security Studies at Yale University

Do not sleep though this revolution! Avakian’s speech, when focusing on the Trump administration’s anti-humanistic actions and policies, demands that we remain awake. It demands that we take action to stop Trump’s allies, enablers, racists and evangelical apologists from making good on their dystopian “Making America Great Again” slogan....
Dr. David I. Orenstein, Professor of Anthropology, Medgar Evers College/CUNY

The speech is well-loaded with a plethora of information which needs to be distributed among as many people as possible…millions!... He was so crystal-clear. He didn't sugar-coat. He didn’t say, “Oh well, if this doesn’t happen then maybe the next presidential election...” Like trying to sweep it under the rug, like “this too shall pass.” No, this needs to be addressed! And that’s what really lured me in, and now I’m hooked.
Claudia, a classical musician

“I am very strong recommending, Bob Avakian, my brother; in a prophetic way he highlights real issues that are happening in the U.S. ... a prophet is the one with the capacity to first identify problems; second have the capacity and the courage to denounce the problem. But more important, to change that reality of oppression into a liberating experience.”...
Father Luis Barrios, Holyrood Church/Iglesia Santa Cruz, NYC

"Too often, we decide to vote for Democrats because they are the lesser of two evils.... Avakian’s advice that we should not vote for the lesser of two evils because it is evil cuts very close to home."
Rev. Frank Wulf, Pastor, Echo Park United Methodist Church, Los Angeles

“In posing the question, ‘Which is more important: order or justice?’ Bob Avakian addresses a key impediment to an overwhelming outpouring of nonviolent resistance to the Trump/Pence regime... There is no better time for non-violent resistance than now. Through the application of justice, it is time to forge a new order: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!...”
David Gunn Jr., son of Dr. David Gunn,
the first abortion doctor to be assassinated by antiabortion extremists
 
“Bob Avakian is speaking against apathy and for the need for courage... and for hundreds of thousands and millions to be out on the front lines. I’m glad to see an atheist quoting a religious pastor, Martin Niemöller—who spoke out against Nazi Germany and on behalf of the Jews and those in the resistance.”
 Rafael Angulo, Clinical Professor,
School of Social Work, University of Southern California
 
"Bob Avakian must be hoarse so long and well has he argued for basic human rights in the United States. His latest video summarizes the severity of the Trump/Pence crisis with vigor and a necessary outrage."
Donna Schaper, Senior Minister Judson Memorial Church, New York City
 
"Avakian's message is clear and very inspiring."
Arturo O'Farrill, Grammy-winning musician
 
"Everyone who loves Mother Earth must watch this film."
Maggie Brown, artist, activist
 
"Bob Avakian is the only one who has got the guts to say things as they are... EVERYONE should see Bob Avakian’s film... it's a 'wake up' film."
Isabel Cardenas, immigration activist

To the angry and impatient youth... to those living in the shadows... to those who are in fear every day of being torn from your loved ones... to all those who are sickened by these endless outrages... to anyone and everyone who is determined to stand up and fight:

It’s time to get organized for an ACTUAL revolution. And this revolution needs you.

A whole different world is possible—a world without borders, a world where no human being is considered “illegal,” a world without the division into a handful of bloodthirsty imperialist powers and the vast majority of humanity locked into the oppressed nations.

“The new synthesis of communism brought forward by Bob Avakian (BA) really is a total game-changer, which objectively represents and constitutes the opening of a whole new chapter in the historical evolution of communist theory and practice. IT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING. But this will happen only IF the New Communism of BA becomes widely known, takes root, and spreads ever more broadly, in a kind of geometric progression, throughout this society and also throughout the entire world.”
