are needed to launch
a major summer campaign to save
Revolution Books. Bring your ideas,
passion, creativity and
stake: ensuring that Revolution Books continues as the place where
people can come from all over the world to find the books and the deep
engagement with each other about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a radically different way the world could be. Revolution
Books is a bookstore at the center of building a movement for
RBLA booth at Occupy L.A.
There is no other place, no other bookstore that fills this great need. We
need you to help pull out all the stops to raise the funds, bring more people into the store, get the store out into
the public square this summer. Revolution Books is more than a bookstore -- it is a cause and a movement. It needs your generous financial donation now, and your help in building a much largerbase of support.
Fresh stirrings of struggle continue around the world
and here in the US at a moment of deepening economic and political
crisis. People need analyses of the depth of the problems and their causes. They need a way out of the madness and horror. Revolution Books is indispensable to opening up the process of discovery about a future worth fighting for.
Books challenges conventional wisdom that this capitalist system is the
best humanity can do -- in the bookstore and out in the world it brings
to people the reality that there is a new synthesis of communism
brought forward by Bob Avakian, which is a viable vision and strategy
for a radically new, and much better, society and world. At RB, people
can get connected with the leadership needed for the struggle toward
What is so critical for the future is that this possibility not be lost.

For the emancipation of humanity,
