Above: Watch MSNBC's video doc on the Revolution Club at the RNC

August 2016

Over the last month, the Revolution Club has been organizing for an actual revolution at the soonest possible time, among people on the streets where murdering police are still getting away with murdering our people, and at the RNC in Cleveland and the DNC in Philadelphia. Your financial support is needed to help cover expenses for the Club's work.  

The Revolution Club stirred many new people into political life, with the Message from the RCP Central Committee which plants a pole of a radically different future and digs beneath the surface of things to get to the common source of many, seemingly disconnected, outrages of this system. They fought for the understanding that Trump vs Clinton is nothing but criminal choices of a criminal system. They called out to people: We Need to Overthrow, Not Vote For, This System!

They connected people with the works and leadership of BA [Bob Avakian], engaging them with clips from his talk, "Revolution: Nothing Less!" and with "BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian." They distributed Revolution newspaper, enabling people to really understand and act to change the a living picture and scientific analysis of what is going on in the world and why.

Club members were strong, determined, and defiant in the face of massive police mobilization, arrests, and brutality at the hands of the pigs, and Nazi and Christian fundamentalist fanatics. They went into the neighborhoods of the oppressed, led people into the streets, and boldly delivered the message: "America was NEVER great--we need to OVERTHROW this system!" 

Both at the RNC and at the DNC Joey Johnson and Carl Dix, supported by other Revolution Club members, burnt the American flag to make a powerful statement that America was NEVER great and to expose that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both "Criminal choices of a criminal system that must be overthrown."

At the RNC, Joey and 15 others were illegitimately arrested and have serious charges from the action of burning the flag. Some of your donation will help carry out a political and legal campaign to force the authorities to drop all the charges, including helping defendants get to Cleveland for court appearances.

The world cries out for revolution. The Central Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA has put out an important statement "Time to Get Organized for an ACTUAL REVOLUTION" and Revolution Books Chicago urges everyone who wants to see a radically different and better world to dig into this statement.

There are serious plans to make leaps in building a movement for an actual revolution. In order to contribute to this exciting new direction, Revolution Books Chicago is going to focus on taking the works of Bob Avakian and the RCP, USA, including, Revolution newspaper, and other revolutionary literature and videos directly out to the people in neighborhoods around Chicago. To accomplish this, we will no longer be able to maintain the bookstore on Ashland Avenue.

The store closed on July 24. 
We want to express our appreciation for your support of Revolution Books. Some of you have supported Revolution Books in many ways and over many years, and others have done so only recently, and we hope you will follow and support the ongoing work being done to bring about an actual revolution. We urge you to get an e-subscription to Revolutionnewspaper  and closely follow the website, the lifeline that cuts through events to reveal the need for revolution and how to move now to hasten and prepare for that revolution.

We will continue to keep you informed via the Revolution Books email about events around Chicago, important new books, and where to find us as the revolution pops up in different parts of the city.

The Revolution Books New York store will continue to be the flagship store nationally and we support their efforts and urge you to follow their website
