Taking Revolution to the Island! Summer 2014 Martha’s Vineyard
Join us for: Fun in the Sun and so much more!
The coming together of prominent Afro-American intellectuals, artists and critical thinkers over the summer on Martha’s Vineyard has been happening for over 100 years
and is of national significance! Staff and supporters of Revolution Books are planning on going to the Vineyard this August to introduce these people and others to the movement
for revolution this summer and we want you to join with us.
We are talking about authors who have written books on critical topics that are widely read, artists who are making films or music reaching broad audiences and
academics of national prominence. Many of these are people who have deeply committed themselves to the questions of mass incarceration, the growing disparity between
rich and poor and other critical social issues and who have broad and disproportionate influence in society among black people and more generally.
Many have been passionate in their commitment to Obama, yet feel great concern and disquiet about where we are at in the world – including where to go now that the
“promise” of the first Black presidency has failed so dramatically to address the issues they are deeply concerned about.
In BAsics 3:19, Bob Avakian says: “There will never be a revolutionary movement in this country that doesn’t fully unleash and give expression to the sometimes openly
expressed, sometimes expressed in partial ways, sometimes expressed in wrong ways, but deeply felt desire to be rid of these long centuries of oppression
[of Black people]. There’s never going to be a revolution in this country, and there shouldn’t be, that doesn’t make that one of the key foundation of
what it’s all about.”
If we are seriously working to change the current polarization in the U.S. to make it more favorable to revolution—AND THE REVOLUTIONARY COMMUNIST PARTY IS – we cannot
stand aside from this strategic gathering. Join with us in taking revolution to Martha’s Vineyard.

BA Everywhere... Imagine the Difference It Could Make!
If you are someone who is angered and outraged by the horrors of this
world: the oppression of black people and women, the ruthless wars of
the brink of environmental catastrophe, and you are someone who has
dared to dream of a radically different world, then unleash your
People need the truth about the communist revolution. The REAL truth. At a time when people are rising up in many places
all over the world and seeking out ways forward, THIS alternative is ruled out of order. At a time when even more people are
agonizing over and raising big questions about the future, THIS alternative is constantly slandered and maligned and lied
about, while those who defend it are given no space to reply. We thought it urgent that we answer the questions and tell the
TRUTH about the communist revolution—the real way out of the horrors that people endure today, and the even worse ones they
face tomorrow... Read More Here
