A statement from Bob Avakian
revolutionary leader, author and architect of the revolutionary new communism
To all those who have risen up so powerfully and are demonstrating to say “No More!” after the murder of George Floyd, and all the other cold-blooded murders by police.
To all those who have drawn inspiration from this righteous uprising.
To all those who have had the blinders forced from their eyes and have been provoked to think anew about what kind of country it is that we live in.
The brutal murder of a black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis which had all the makings of deliberate modern-day lynching and street execution has outraged the whole world. Protests and rioting erupted in many cities in the US. The sentiments of the masses of people in the US streets rising up in bitter anger and demanding justice echo across the world. The following words by Bob Avakian sharply express the truth and the essential lesson of this situation.
The following is a summation of some group study and discussion of the new communism and the leadership of Bob Avakian (BA).

Dear friends and comrades,
The continuing progression of the coronavirus pandemic higlights the critical importance of taking a scientific view both of the virus and more fundamentally of the structure and dynamics of the capitalist-imperialist society that is bringing about so much unnecessary death and suffering all over the world.

(Longer Version—The Truth Elaborated)
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, the following points of orientation remain relevant. What is coming into sharper relief is how the underlying workings of this system, the system of capitalism-imperialism, really constrain and obstruct the necessary response at a global level—despite people’s best sentiments.
The following is from Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, authored by Bob Avakian. (The Constitution is available in PDF format online here.)

5 April 2019. A World to Win News Service. People began flooding into Algiers’ main square in the early morning today before it filled up. By afternoon the square and surrounding streets were solidly packed with people celebrating their victory, the fall of the hated President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. The same happened in cities throughout the country. The hundreds of thousands in the streets – and millions more broadly – felt a once-in-a lifetime exuberance. They were dealing a powerful blow to the hogra, the humiliation of the people, in their individual lives and as a nation, at the hands of a corrupt clique, obsequious to foreign powers and cruel to the masses of people.
19 January 2019. A World to Win News Service. Trump’s foreign policy chief Michael Pompeo gave a major speech in Cairo, Egypt, at the start of a tour of the Gulf countries, Jordan and Iraq.
