THE SQUARE: film showing and discussion on the Anniversary of the Uprising in Egypt 2-11-16 at 7pm

Thursday February 11

Showing of the film "The Square" with discussion:
On the Anniversary of the Uprising in Egypt, Let's Dig Into the Critical Need for a Core of Communist Leadership

In the winter of 2011, five years ago, the people of Egypt rose up in rebellion against decades of brutally oppressive rule by the Mubarak regime-a regime backed by and playing a key role in preserving the interests of the U.S. Empire. On February 11 of that year, Mubarak was driven from office. On that day, Bob Avakian issued a critically important message, EGYPT 2011: MILLIONS HAVE HEROICALLY STOOD UP... THE FUTURE REMAINS TO BE WRITTEN.
Come watch the film, hear BA's message, and join in the discussion!


Tuesdays 7-9 p.m. Revolution Books presents excerpts from the film
People are grappling with big questions: Is there a way to change, to really change the way that people around the world are forced to live? What would it take to not just change the many ways that people are oppressed, but to actually END oppression altogether? And what will your life be about in relation to that?

The world today IS a horror—but it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a way forward, a way out of the horrors.

As it says on

You Are Invited to important meeting to discuss six historic resolutions from the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. 2-6-16

You Are Invited to... important meeting to discuss
six historic resolutions from the
Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

These resolutions come at a time when the oppression faced by billions of people is increasingly unbearable, when resistance is flaring up, but when the need is acutely posed for leadership which genuinely enables people to understand the causes of that oppression and to act to uproot and transform it. Revolutionary communism is the scientific understanding of the kind of radically different and radically better world that IS possible and how to get there. These resolutions focus on the leap in that scientific understanding that has been forged by Bob Avakian and on the overall leadership he provides and models-and what that means for humanity.

The Party will hold meetings to discuss the content of these resolutions. Be sure to come. Be part of digging into what these resolutions mean and help figure out how to spread their message further.

(The full text of the Resolutions is available in Spanish and English at or at Revolution Books, Berkeley.)

"BA Speaks: Revolution - Nothing Less!" showing 1-5-16

Jan. 5th, Tues. 7  p.m.  Film Showing of "BA Speaks: Revolution - Nothing Less!" 
On this planet today, there are no questions that are more important—and no answers that are more thoroughgoing—than what is spoken to in BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS! And there is no person more filled with contempt for the powers-that-be and the horrific order they trumpet and enforce—nor more filled with scientific confidence in the potential of masses of people to change all that—than Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.
