$30,000 in 30 days,
plus 100 new sustainers for Revolution newspaper...
Changing the world with the BAsics
BAsics Reader!
May 1, New York City
... Now, we are announcing a 30-day plan-to start Monday, May 23-to raise $30,000 plus 100 new Revolution sustainers, for beginning but bold promotional plans for BAsics to have a societal impact, for covering the remaining small debt incurred in the production of April 11 and the very initial production costs to make a documentary about this event [see more below], and for the critical functioning of RCP Publications. In addition, thousands of dollars are needed now by the Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund to make important initial headway in their goal to get BAsics to 2,000 prisoners."

April 11 finale
April 11 Finale - click for artist interviews
  $10,000 toward a film of the event
"On the Occasion of the Publication of BAsics: A Celebration of Revolution and the Vision of a New World." What was brought into being on April 11 has to reverberate beyond the walls of Harlem Stage. In a professional documentary of what this night was, footage of the performances would be interspersed with interviews of the artists who took part and people on the host committee who lent their name. These interviews could focus in on a few individuals and the development of their thinking, what Avakian's work spoke to in them, how they were changed through this and their overall thoughts on the need to celebrate revolution and the vision of a new world,
including through their art.

Walk for ChoiceWorld Can't Wait is joining Walk for Choice in Chicago and dozens of cities around the country to "mobilize the whole damn country for abortion access." Roe v Wade is becoming irrelevant as states enact tighter and tighter restrictions on abortion. These reactionaries will not relent until abortion is outlawed entirely. "Backing Down the Most All-Out these attacks.

Can we accept this? NO. We're not going to give them our bodies--our lives. We're not playing this game anymore. We're not sacrificing the right to birth control, emergency contraception, or yes, abortion, for the sake of bipartisanship or anything else.  May 21, Walk for Choice, No Freedom without Reproductive FreedomMore information on Walk for Choice  Invite your friends via Facebook.
