A little about Revolution Books:
Revolution Books is about making revolution and nothing less -- we're on a mission to emancipate humanity -- exposing and resisting all the ways people are beaten down, and showing that it doesn't have to be this way. RB refuses to cave in to the onslaught of lies and propaganda that this is the best of all possible worlds, that revolution is impossible, and that socialism and communism were failures and worse.
Revolution is possible -- and in particular because of Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, and the work he's done. There really is a path-breaking vision and strategy for a radically new, and much better, society and world.
And everything that goes on here at RB is pushing towards that world. From engaging with artists, intellectuals, and experts; to fighting outrages like mass incarceration; to delving into revolutionary theory--it's crucial that this unique center and bookstore stay open, and get out into the world on a whole new level.
Humanity Needs Revolution, the Revolution Needs Revolution Books, Revolution Books Needs YOU!
