Watch Episode 57 of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less—Show

“Watching this episode will let people “see” the revolution, and begin to get an understanding of its goals and principles and leadership. We can invite friends and relations into our homes to watch this together.

The marches in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago gave people a living sense of the need for revolution … what the revolution is all about … and the kind of society the revolution will bring into being. These marches gave people a living sense of the leadership of this revolution—Bob Avakian—and of the revolutionary organization being built by the revcoms. And these marchers showed people a vision of a different kind of world, where people could overcome the nightmare of oppression, grinding exploitation and bitter divisions of today and live as freely cooperating human beings.

We also need to go to work on bringing the word of this to people all over. These marches were an example of what the “Declaration and Call” sets out: “acting together as an increasingly powerful force… to attract and organize the necessary numbers, and build up the necessary strength, to be in the position to do what needs to be done.”

We need to go to work … to make advances based on what we accomplished.

This means organizing … “reaching out to all sorts of people—not just where there are protests and rebellions against oppression and injustice, but everywhere throughout society—spreading the word about revolution and getting people together (in real life and online) to grapple with why an actual revolution is necessary, what such a revolution involves, and what kind of society this is aiming for. This will enable people who are new to the revolution to themselves become organizers for this revolution and to recruit more and more people to do the same.”
