A Defiant Protestor wearing a tee-shirt that says
BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS!
As people raise their heads-jolted and inspired by the people rising up in rebellion in Ferguson, Missouri, against yet another police murder of a young unarmed Black man in America - they need to know that another world is possible. Everyone awakening to the great turmoil all over the world needs to know that there is a way out of the horror and madness of this system. They need to know about the vision and leadership of Bob Avakian (BA), the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, for a radically new society that could be brought about through revolution.
This picnic is an opportunity for all kinds of people who are lifting their heads, straightening their backs, starting to see with new eyes - to learn more about Bob Avakian and the BA Everywhere campaign and the difference it can make; an opportunity to get involved, to donate, to JOIN this campaign.
A chance to get into the big questions of why things are as they are and how all this can change - the big questions that most people, most of the time, don't allow themselves to think about-or to hope could be different. A chance to meet up with the Revolutionary Communist Party and the movement for revolution it is leading.
This gathering will be a culmination of the summer and launch to the fall. It will bring people together-and bring together outrage, defiance, questions, determination to find a different way-with the revolutionary strategy and vision that BA has brought forward - building community and breaking bread-and raising funds.
And the historic announcement being made on revcom.us on September 1 will be read by the RCP, USA at these events.
Potluck picnic, bring friends and food and drink to share.
