Discussion of: 
By Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA
The Occupy protests have raised the hopes of millions in this country and worldwide. Profound discontent with the inequality and injustice in this society has burst to the surface. The atmosphere and discourse in society is changing, and millions are thinking about and asking big questions about the ways things are-and whether and how a different future would be possible. Over the last few weeks, this movement has been repressed in what appear to be coordinated attacks to savagely evict encampment after encampment across the country. This movement stands at a crossroads-in the largest sense. Where to now? What is the essence of this crossroads and how are we to understand it? What direction should this movement take? And with what understanding and orientation? How will the injustice and inequality this movement is targeting actually be overcome? What kind of leadership is needed to bring that about?

Occupy Sit down
Bob Avakian addresses these questions and more in "A Reflection on the 'Occupy' Movement: An Inspiring Beginning... and the Need to Go Further." It is critically important to read, distribute and deeply discuss this statement. And let the ferment and debate spread and heighten in every corner of society.

PDF's of BA's Reflection are below; these can and should be downloaded, printed and broadly distributed far and wide... not only to those in the movement, but to all those who have been awakened and touched by these actions. Get this Reflection out to all those who have been spurred to think about the nature and state of this society and to consider how to bring into being a far better world and future. And forward to Revolution correspondence about your experience and discussions!

Dec 11 Flyer

April 2011 marked the release of BAsics, a book by Bob Avakian, the revolutionary leader who has developed a new synthesis of communism. This book of quotations and essays speaks to essential questions of revolution and human emancipation. On this occasion, a range of artists, musicians, dancers and actors from a diversity of perspectives came together in a unique cultural event to celebrate revolution and the vision of a new world. 
This film will tell the story of what those artists did and why they did it. It will bring a taste of the remarkable connection between these artists and the hundreds in the audience that night.

For everyone who has dreamed of a different and better world or wondered how art and culture can be part of creating it, this is a film that needs to be seen.   
But it won't be made without your support.
