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 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 Cambridge is going to focus on taking the works of Bob Avakian and the RCP, USA,
including www.revcom.us, Revolution newspaper, and other revolutionary literature and videos directly out to the people.
To accomplish this, we will no longer be able to maintain the bookstore at 1158 Mass Ave.
The store will close on July 23. Until then, Revolution Books will be open on Saturdays from 12 noon to 6 pm.
One important way you can help is by buying books from Revolution Books at our tables in Harvard Sq
We want to express our appreciation for your support of Revolution Books. Some of you have supported Revolution Books in
many ways since its founding in 1979, 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 Revolution newspaper and
closely follow the website www.revcom.us, the lifeline that cuts through events to reveal the need for revolution and how to
move now to hasten and prepare for that revolution.
After closing the store, we will continue to keep you informed via the Revolution Books email and website about events, important new
books, author events, and where to find us as the revolution pops up in different places.
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.
Towards a radically better world,
Revolution Books Cambridge
Two Reflections in the Wake of the Incident in Baton Rouge
One: Baton Rouge – Wild Scenarios, Ruling Class Spin, and What We Actually Know To Be True
As of 5 pm Monday, July 18, here is what has actually been made public about what happened in Baton Rouge on Sunday, July 17: after a week in which the Baton Rouge
police were caught on video carrying out the vicious assassination of Alton Sterling and then went on to brutally beat down and illegally arrest people who were
protesting that murder, a Black man named Gavin Long had an encounter with some of those police, whom as a Black man he would have a legitimate reason to fear, and in
that encounter Long and three police ended up dead.
Note to readers of revcom.us: Now is a moment to reach out broadly to people with many ways they can contribute to the movement for revolution! Including: through
contributing funds, through popularizing and projecting Bob Avakian, through feeding in their ideas, energy and skills. There are many great needs!
One important thing people can do is spread and promote clips now available at revcom.us from REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the
Role of Religion; A Dialogue Between CORNEL WEST & BOB AVAKIAN through social media. Below is a template letter you might use to encourage and help people do that.
And you may want to combine this with a request for funds or other things people can do to contribute to the movement for revolution at this critical moment.
"If you care about the horrific state of the world, if you yearn for humanity to be free..."
Contribute to the BA Everywhere Campaign!
Revolution Books will be having yard sales and attending flea markets to raise funds for this campaign.
You can make contributions of books, electronics, other saleable items that will help to make this happen.
If you would like to host a yard sale or another type of event please contact us.
"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."

On November 15, 1900 people packed The Riverside Church in New York City to experience the Dialogue between Cornel West and Bob Avakian-REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion.
It was an historic event. Two perspectives were set forth-contending and overlapping, struggling for higher ground, and coming back to unity on the need to ACT. The video of the entire Dialogue has now been posted!
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
