AVAILABLE NOW! 
CELEBRATE THE RELEASE OF
THE CONSTITUTION
For The
New Socialist Republic in North America
(Draft Proposal)
from the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA ($8)


Saturday November 13
4:00 to 6:00pm
at REVOLUTION BOOKS
1103 N Ashland, Chicago
On November 13, the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America (Draft Proposal) will be officially released. Beginning on that day, everything that people think is possible, and impossible, will come under radical challenge.
Right in the middle of a cruel, rotting empire, a vision of something entirely new-something very radical and far better than the present way that people are forced to live-will be set forth from the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.
There is great potential in this Constitution to impact and inspire a very wide range of people, including those who burn with the desire for a better world, but who will have differences or questions about aspects of this Constitution, or even the basic thrust of it. This should, and will, spark all-round debate and ferment over how we live today, and how we could live tomorrow.
This Constitution will present a very real alternative to the present system, a response to the argument-heard even from those with deep upset about the status quo-that there is nothing that can be done to really change things. And this can contribute in significant ways to the necessary repolarization for revolution in society overall by breaking people's inability to see beyond the way things are today... to a better world, an alternative that is not just desirable, but viable.
In the world today, the importance of this mustn't be underestimated.

Wednesday, October 13th at 7pm - A Banned Books Week Presentation

Warren Brown is Mark Twain in
CATCH THE TWAIN!!!
Give a 10$ donation and get a cd of CATCH THE TWAIN

Join us in an engaging evening of an uproariously authentic characterization of Mark Twain's stories and lecture series guaranteed to entertain audiences.
A first-person Chautauqua-style audience question and answer session is included with each program. The program promotes an appreciation for humanity, education, and literacy in a way that is humorous and inspirational, and historically amusing.
Warren Brown, a Mark Twain scholar, received the Studs Terkel Humanities Service Award for his Chautauqua-style portrayal of Samuel Clemens, "bridging the lessons of history with the demands of contemporary living." Mr. Brown's program, Catch the Twain, is endorsed by the Illinois Humanities Council, the Illinois Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Warren says he struggled all through school, "The hardest eight years of my life...was 1st grade." Nevertheless, Warren has a degree from the University of Illinois

Revolution Newspaper...
and Making Revolution
  for Real
 
We have a strategy - and our newspaper is, as "The Revolution We


"the foundation, guideline, and organizational scaffolding for [the] whole process" of carrying out that strategy. This is the paper that cuts to the bone to tell you WHY things are happening... to show you HOW it doesn't have to be this way... and to give you the ways to ACT to change it. It is a call to action and a means of struggle. It is, and has to be much more, the scaffolding on which this movement is built, where those who are getting into it and following it can wrangle in its pages and on its website with how we can better build this movement. It is a guideline where today thousands, but soon tens of thousands and eventually millions, all over the place, stay connected and learn to act in a powerful and united way. It is the foundation where those who read it learn about the larger goals of revolution and communism and come to see the ways in which the struggles of today are connected to those larger goals... where they come to grasp the scientific communist outlook through its application to all the many particular events and outrages and developments in society... and where they get organizationally linked up to this revolution.”
