I began the article “Radical Change Is Coming” with this blunt statement:
For those who cannot help but hunger for a “return” to some kind of “normalcy” as an answer to the madness of Trump, Pence and rest—forget it, it is not going to happen!1
I went on to speak to ways in which the fascist forces aligned with Trump (and Pence) are preparing to react, quite possibly with violence, if the election does not go Trump’s way (or if Trump cancels the election and there is an outpouring of resistance to this). In fact, for more than 20 years now, I have been analyzing the fascist nature of the kind of forces that have rallied around Trump and how they have been increasingly talking about, and preparing for, a civil war.

This is written especially to those who have been righteously standing up and fighting back against murder by police and the oppression of Black people more generally, and to all those who have taken heart and inspiration from this, who are newly encountering the Revolution. Welcome! We stand side by side with you in this struggle and unite with your outrage and fury against centuries of oppression that truly must be NO MORE. This outpouring of resistance must continue and it must grow. People must stay in the streets, and this upsurge must get bigger, broader, deeper, and even more determined. At the same time, the big question that now presents itself—one that literally millions of people are asking—is: What will it take to truly put an end to police brutality, murder by police, and the oppression of Black people, once and for all?
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).

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread worldwide, the global economy contracted. As suffering and deaths caused by the virus have mounted across the planet, the world imperialist system, U.S. imperialism in particular, has responded as it always has: acting to maintain the profitable functioning and interests of empire… to even more horrific effect, especially in the oppressed countries.
From The National Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution Tour in the United States
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.
by Bob Avakian
(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.)
