Sustain the Revolution

Received from REVOLUTION newspaper

Sustain the Revolution!
Sustain the Lifeline! 
Give Every Month to Revolution
This world is a horror.
But it does NOT have to be this way.

There is a way out and a way forward, a viable vision and strategy for a radically new, and much better, society and world.There is a leader-Bob Avakian-who has shown that way and a party determined to fight for it.

Revolution is the voice of that party, and it is one key place where that leader's work-the new synthesis of communism-can be found every issue.

This paper opens up for you a way into that whole different way of understanding the agonies of the old world and the birth pangs of the new.This paper gives you a whole different sense of future possibility. This paper connects you to the movement for revolution that is working and fighting to bring it into being, keeping you up on what is going on and enabling you to find ways to participate.
Now it's up to you. Donate to and regularly sustain this paper. By doing this, you will play a critical role in enabling this paper to connect its message to tens of thousands more, and ultimately-as things go through great shifts and changes-millions.

Sustain this paper. Get this vision and this movement into every area of the country. Deep into the city cores... broad onto the campuses... into the new movements now fighting to be born... further into the hellhole prisons and dungeons... throw out this lifeline to those aching for something new.

Support Occupy Chicago
Occupy Chicago  
Occupy Chicago.
Click pic for Occupy Wall St. slide show.
An extraordinary event has broken out in society. A
breath of fresh air is blowing across the country from the Occupy Wall Street movement to many, many other cities including Occupy Chicago.  Revolution Books is calling on everyone to go to Occupy Chicago and stand with these courageous young resisters.  We know that many on our email list will be interested in attending or observing this growing movement in action.
These are times when the most fundamental questions are being thrown up and there is openness to hearing about revolutionary solutions that has not existed for years.   While people are coming from many different outlooks, there is a great shared feeling that something is terribly wrong in society, and the world, and we are going to do something about it. The essay at the end of Chapter 3 of Bob Avakian's new book BAsics goes into the importance of such moments, that "create situations in which many more people are searching for answers and are open to considering radical change."

This is what can be seen in the Occupy movement, and why it is so important for Revolution Books to support and be part of the mix. Volunteers are needed to help out at both the store and at the Occupy Chicago site. We will be at the Occupy Chicago site from 7-9 pm every night. Come lend a hand, and be part of it. But don't stay home!

There will be frequent updates from Revolution Books. Watch for emails.

Oct 10 Monday: 4 pm "The Stand Up Chicago!" March and Rally co-sponsored by the Chicago Teachers Union -  Join us at the Revolution Banner and be part of a contingent at  the feeder march at the Hilton Hotel on Michigan and Balbo.The march will end up at Occupy Chicago at Jackson and LaSalle.

After the demonstration at 7 pm: Bring people to "Music with a Conscience-the Protest Music of George Flynn" 7 pm at the Chopin Theater, 1543 W. Division. (at Milwaukee, the Division Blue line stop).

Voices of those...Cast off by the system

Spread Support for the Pelican Bay Hunger Strikers
"The courageous prisoners at Pelican Bay are doing everything they can, in the most isolated, inhumane conditions, to refuse to be treated like animals. And because of this, a light is being shined on the torture and inhumanity going on behind these prison walls.  People on the outside have the moral responsibility to act in a way commensurate with the justness of the prisoners' demands and the urgency of the situation. What people on the outside do will be a big factor in what happens when the prisoners resume the hunger strike." from  12,000 Prisoners Resume Hunger Strike in California posted on Revolution website.

They urgently need our support NOW.   

Schedule of Events: 

October 6, Thursday:  11 to 1 pm
