Friday, April 1st, thousands of people will rally throughout the city and gather at 4pm at Thompson center downtown for a march. The day of action was called by the Chicago teacher's union to protest the continuing attacks on teachers, the schools etc. There has not been a budget in IL for over 10 months. Teachers and students will be joined by many others who are feeling the brunt of these draconian cuts ... IL state colleges, social service agencies, recipients of MAP grants etc.

 BA Everywhere is a mass campaign to involve hundreds and thousands of people working together to raise the big money necessary to make this revolutionary science and the leadership of Bob Avakian known so that everywhere people are questioning why the world is the horror it is, everywhere they are raising their heads and fighting back, so they know about, discuss, debate, get into, and can take this up and transform themselves and the world.

Sunday, April 3, 5:00-7:00 pm 
Organizing Meeting for the Bob Avakian Everywhere Campaign
 
Be part of making BA Known Everywhere

Next Sunday will be the first organizing meeting of 2016. We're coming together to make plans to accelerate the movement to let people throughout society know aboutBob Avakian's leadership and his new synthesis of communism, the scientific approach to revolution the world so desperately needs--and to raise the funds to do this! Promoting the work of Bob Avakian is at the core of the mission of Revolution Books , and we urge all of you who support Revolution Books to be part of the BA Everywhere campaign. Bring your ideas and energy to this meeting of the BA Everywhere committee.
 
Where: Revolution Books, 1103 N. Ashland (free parking on Sundays)
When: Sunday, April 3, 5:00 pm
What: Join us to make big plans for the weekend of April 22 through 24, for a series of house parties and film showings to raise funds and engage with BA.
 
As the talk at the dinner last Saturday laid out, "If you care about the horrific state of the world, if you yearn for humanity to be free, you are in the right place." You can begin now to pull together house parties and film showings on the weekend of April 22 through 24. Get inspired by watching a BA film clip yourself and start inviting friends and family or people you work with for a gathering that weekend.

At the dinner, people were moved by this video clip, introducing Bob Avakian "through the years":
 
And thanks to everyone who attended the BAE dinner--and to all the restaurants that donated delicious food and the artists and businesses that donated items to the raffle.

All funds raised at the dinner were contributed to The Bob Avakian Institute for its projects, including for the promotion of BA's soon-to-be-published book 
The Science, the Strategy, the Leadership for an Actual Revolution, and a Radically New Society on the Road to Real Emancipation

Demarcations Discussion: Ajith--A Portrait of the Residue of the Past
This month, we will discuss Chapter VIII "Ajith Finds Himself in the Company of Postmodernism and Religion."

Sunday, March 13, 2016


Props to the thousands of courageous protesters both inside the UIC Pavilion and outside Friday night whose message resulted in Trump cancelling his racist rally. All this throws more light on the analysis offered in the article in Revolution newspaper.

Come join us this Wednesday evening to discuss this article and "Some Works by Bob Avakian on How We Got to This Situation--And the Possibility of Something Far Better."

Saturday, March 19, 6:30-9pm  

Come Together, Raise Funds and Build the Campaign for BA Everywhere


Where:
 Trinity Episcopal Church, 125 East 26th Street (Michigan & 26th)
 (Free parking at church; CTA: #1 or #4 bus from north or south; #21 bus from west)
When: Saturday, March 19, 6:30 pm 

Tickets: $20 adults / $10 students/low income / children under 10 no charge
Purchase tickets in person at: Revolution Books, 1103 N. Ashland, or call 773-489-0930 to reserve tickets. Facebook event here 


You are invited
 to come together, raise funds, and build community, as part of accelerating the BA Everywhere campaign. The campaign aims to raise big funds to make the new synthesis of communism that Bob Avakian (BA) has brought forward, and the leadership he provides, a major question in society: a point of reference and, for increasing numbers, a living framework for how to understand, and transform, the world.
This new synthesis, and this leadership, is concentrated in the new work, The Science, the Strategy, the Leadership for an Actual Revolution, and a Radically New Society on the Road to Real Emancipation by Bob Avakian. One main focus of these dinners will be this work, now available online but soon to be published as a book. This work crystallizes in many ways what is said in the recent resolutions from the RCP's Central Committee--that: 

As a leader, Bob Avakian embodies a rare combination: someone who has been able to develop scientific theory on a world-class level, while at the same time having a deep understanding of and visceral connection with the most oppressed, and a highly developed ability to "break down" complex theory and make it accessible to the masses of people. ("Six Resolutions of the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, January 1, 2016") 
Both the new work and the six resolutions are available in printed form at Revolution Books. 

Email or call Revolution Books 773.489.0930 to volunteer to help with the dinner.

Whispers from the Cosmos: The Dawn of Gravitational Wave Theory

Dr Larson writes: 
"I immensely enjoyed spending my evening with the community at Revolution Books and sharing the news of our new discovery. We had a lively and wide-ranging discussion about the basic science behind the gravitational wave discovery, as well as what the implications are, both for astrophysics as well as for all of us in our everyday lives. The crowd was engaged and curious, and asked really good questions. We talked until the lights went out -- I look forward to coming back!"

Unleash the Fury of Women as a Mighty Force for Revolution!
Celebrate International Women's Day at
Revolution Books  

Declaration for Women's Liberation 
Join us on Tuesday, March 8, at the reception to celebrate International Women's Day, with conversation, readings, video clips, and refreshments. 

Women are not bitches, hos, punching bags, sex objects or breeders. Women are FULL HUMAN BEINGS!
Fight for the Liberation of Women Here and All Over the World!
Break the Chains! Unleash the Fury of Women as a Mighty Force for Revolution!

March 8, International Women's Day, is a day when people all over the world join together to declare our determination to break the thousand-years-old chains of oppression that bind half of humanity. IWD is a day to call forth the fury of women and unleash it as a mighty force for revolution; a day for all who dream of and yearn for a better world to act on the recognition that you cannot break all the chains except one, that if you are serious about emancipating all of humanity you must include the fight for the full liberation of women. A day of struggle against the many different chains of women's oppression: from the brutality of Dark Ages patriarchal feudalism and Islamic fundamentalism; to the trafficking of women worldwide; to the "modern-day" chains of Internet pornography and denial of reproductive rights.  Read more about the meaning and history of IWD.
