WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. Revcom.us/Revolution is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.

A Benefit for Revolution Books

$10 donation ($5 for students)
These amazing and brave artists are coming to Revolution Books on . This will be an afternoon born of heartbreaking agony... fueled by rage ... fired by determination to use the power of art to summon conviction and courage... to give heart to the rebels who refuse to accept injustice, to inspire all to fight for a different future.
Proceeds will help save Revolution Books, a place where people find the books and the deep engagement about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a radically different world. It's a center for building a movement for revolution and has been in the thick of the struggle against police brutality and murder. It is all-volunteer and not for profit. But this bookstore could be lost. Major funds are needed now to keep Revolution Books open. Please contribute all you can.
