Revolution
in the U.S.A.

Do we need a revolution and a radically different society?
What is happening every day-what this system does to people,
day in, day out-here and all over the world, cries out: YES, WE DO.

Is revolution really possible in a country like the U.S.? YES, IT IS.

Is there actually a strategy and method for approaching how
to make such a revolution? YES, THERE IS.

Is there a group that is organized on the basis of that strategy and method,
is working for such a revolution and could lead that revolution
when the time is right? YES, AGAIN.

Come hear some straight talk about these vital questions by speakers representing the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. Then dig into this. Questions and answers on: making revolution in the U.S.A.

Wednesday, August 27, 7 pm


Presentation and discussion of the new Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. The Constitution lays out the mission and vision of a new stage of communist revolution in a very accessible way, as well as laying out the principles of organization and the theoretical foundation of the Party. This Constitution serves as a bold declaration that there is indeed a party, in the belly of the imperialist U.S., with the determination and strategic analysis to make a revolution. . . and the vision, method and understanding of society and history to ensure that it is a revolution worth making.

This discussion of the new RCP Constitution will focus on part 2, the appendix - why communism is both a scientific and revolutionary theory.

The Constitution is available now at Revolution Books. Get your copies!

Revolution Books May Calendar

Events below are at Revolution Books.

May 7 - Wednesday - 7 pm
"Making Revolution and Emancipating Humanity" by Bob Avakian. The vanguard party-why you need it, why it's the most important form of organization fo the masses, what it can and must do. "We have to grasp firmly why, from the perspective and strategic necessity of revolution, the Party is the most important form of organization of the masses."

May 14 - Wednesday - 7 pm
"Making Revolution and Emancipating Humanity" by Bob Avakian. One glance at the terrain and you can see all kinds of negative contradictions including extreme individualism, heightened parasitism and relentless consumerism. But, as Avakian writes, "while it causes real problems and embodies real obstacles from the perspective of our revolutionary objectives, [it] also poses significant problems for the ruling class, much as they're promoting it." How should we understand and act in relation to the complicated political and ideological terrain today? Can all this be re-polarized for revolution.

Making Revolution and Emancipating Humanity - Part 2: Everything We're Doing Is About Revolution. This week's discussion focuses on:
Hastening while awaiting - not bowing down to necessity: We're not in a revolutionary situation. So what do we do? Wait for things to get really bad and for people to get really desperate? Or are we "hastening while awaiting"- actually working to accelerate things and preparing the ground for when it will be possible to rise up? Bob Avakian says, "Everything we're doing is about revolution." Can that really apply to today?
